I'm almost certain that the Galleria is getting the most pairs but I don't know how much.

Following would probably be HOH Northline.

These will be almost impossible (and too stressful) to obtain in Houston, so I'm passing.

That's the truth.  My sister is a manager at Footlocker and she's always getting hit up around this time of the year.  Sucky part is she's the type of person that wants to help everyone.  Just not possible to do it for everyone.  What's sad is she'll get hit up by family members that she hasn't heard from all year, JUST for the December 23rd release; three years and counting, get the eff out of here with that!

Everyone thinks they deserve a hookup these days.

Lancaster, PA has the Villa which will be a midnight release most likely. I recommend ftl & finish line at the mall in the morning tho. Just gotta get there a little early and you'll be good.

if you live in Hawaii...

FORGET about going morning of. People will be camping a day in advance, and most stores have a one size or two size run. You already know there are gonna be straight billed snapback, skinny jean, glasses wearing hipster phillipino kids (no racism) lining up with their sister to snag an extra pair.

Great living in paradise for the weather, sucks living on an island for shoes...

They had about 400. When I went there at 4:30 am after my shortened nap, there were at least 500 people there. I was thinking about leaving but there were people selling tickets numbered 1-400 for various prices for a position for a wristband. One dude had a ticket in the 300's for $70 guaranteeing me a pair
, I did not buy it because is was a good chance that I will not get my size because I wear 10.5-11. Then a few minutes later, another guy had a ticket #230 for $30 and I figured that it is in the middle of the pack. I thought about it and took the risk. I rather risk $30 for a chance. After getting the ticket, I went right back into my car until 5:45 am because it was cold. When my number was called up, they still had my sizes 10.5 and 11, and I chose 10.5 and finally secured my pair. I guess risking my $30 was well worth it.
When I was on line I was speaking to some people that were right behind me and asked then what time they arrived at the mall, they said they were there since 12:00 midnight.
 I got there at 4:30 am and still got my pair. They start giving out wristbands at six. This will be my first and last time I will ever come out for wristbands or any release shoe at 6:00 am after people who were 200+ on line were there since midnight for a 6:00 am wristband. So I will be picking them up on Friday at midnight.

Any help I appreciated it
I'm the same situation and size.  For my Space Jams I got a 13...really narrow.  Got 13.5 for the Cool Greys and was much better.  Copping a 13.5 this time around but half sizes from 13+ are tough to find in stores.

I'd say with the DMP, everyone knew would be limited so most did not get their hopes up.  The general release to the masses brings everyone from newbies to those retired in the game.   For me personally, these are my grail

This release will cause more chaos than the DMP release.

this release > DMP
DMP was the first package deal that JB dropped.  Many people weren't into the pack concept at the time (including myself).  Like glove72 said, this is a GR so there are tons of spots getting them, which gives everyone a chance to get them... which seems to be a "false hope" for most
