If you ask your Grandpa or Dad depending how old you are..... he might think a pair of Yeezys is a type of Cheese dude hahaha. And 200,000 is a GR man Nike just doesn't to lable them that because the little kids wouldn't think there as "sought after." You just aren't making sense either way. Your saying Jordans don't appeal to everyone and so they manufacture 200,000 and Yeezys apeal to all genres and they will manufacture higher numbers than Jordans? Banned were manufactured 15% of Concord numbers and I am guessing Yeezys will manufacture 35% because they will be online, mom and pops, and select stores. My dude the majority of the stock will not be online. The majority will be Nationwide. I'll be right man trust me.... If you have people purchasing after the release for over retail it means it's not adequate hahaha. And I'm sure 99.9% of people know on this thread that there will be purchases........Think about what your saying. No hate but just think about it.
Yeah, I get that Jordan is an established brand. Read my post all the way through, I already said that the Yeezy's will be released at GR/Concord numbers but still labeled "limited" for the hypekiddies. Think about this: The Concord is considered one of the most popular shoes of all time, and that release was huge. 15% less than a GR, the shoe was everywhere. Think about the way Nike marketed that release, they're still reselling for more because there wasn't adequate stock for everyone to get them, and people still want them. You're saying that they wouldn't produce more Yeezys because Jordan is established, but I'm saying the opposite. The fact that Yeezy's are an exclusive line is the exact reason they WOULD produce more.
Also, consider the hype associated with the Yeezy's. Imagine if Nike did exactly the Concord release but with these; there would be riots, people killing each other when they didn't get their pair. It would be the Galaxies X10 in damage, because there are more people trying to cop than the Concords. The Yeezy's already have the title of most hyped shoe of all time, so why wouldn't Nike produce Concord numbers, but in secret? We're estimating what, like 2000-2500 pairs allocated to stores right now? Correct that number if it's wrong, but that's less than 40% of the Banned stock and there were 9000 of those, not to mention that was a fairly low-key drop with no online sale. 

Think about what you're saying. There will no doubt be limited numbers of these, but I speculate near Concord numbers, think about how popular the two shoes are. There were 1200 Galaxies, and there was no online drop. There are already confirmed more pairs of Yeezy's, and a confirmed online, so there has to be at least more than the Banned and the Galaxies, because it wouldn't be worth Nike's time and they'd be passing up so much money with all the hype. No doubt there will be resells for more than retail, but there will many to go around.

You gotta be decked out in Supreme Stussy and Nike or else no employee will try to offer any help. Honestly, I'm just guessing but....... I don't think extra butter has any pairs to sell lol. It's just a whole charade, just like the Mercer RSVPs.

I wanna catch some of these Mercer people outside one day. That one fat dude there gets on my nerves.

yea I was thinking of going over there after school tomorrow but I'm don't want to stand out there because they said they weren't selling tickets from 2-4 today and 2 is when i get out.Did you see a line? And did you see the jar with tickets of some sort.
Don't bother, they said they will probably stop giving out tickets way before 1. And no, I didn't see none of that. No lines, and 8 employees standing around looking like morons. 

wow thanks for the info smh

well guys no one said 21mercer was legit but they sure don't give away all their pairs to their friends and family...


early in the day i DMed them with the platinum information seconds after the tweet went out, literally milliseconds after they allowed DMs. you could not believe how salty i was when i didnt get an answer


then later on in the day i was with my girl and i casually went on twitter and saw that the rsvp for the solars went out and i noticed it posted 5 minutes ago so i didnt really have much hope but i sent a message from my account and then from my girls like 2 minutes later for the same size.


i never got a response, and she did even though she sent it even LATER than my already late dm...

it's my birthday tomorrow so i guess this is my present haha but yeah their twitter antics are really *%++** up

First And Foremost, Shot Out To The Homie PROBALLER For Helping Shed Light On Some Release Info Out Here In Colorado, Even Tho He Is MILES Away Out In Washington



It Was Lookiing Kind Of Grim Out Here For These As Most People Are Doing The "Buy Our ++%$, And We'll Give You Raffle Tickets" Type Release If Not Auctions



My Lady Stays A Little Bit Closer To This Shop Than I Do Right Now So She Offered To Stop By On Her Way Back From Work This Evening. She Stopped Thru As Promised And Found Out That The Store Had Decided To Hand Out Wristbands To Those Waiting In Line Throughout The Day Because Of Crappy Weather Conditions Set To Hit Our Area Tonight. After A Little More Chatting She Was Able To Find Out That (4) Or So Pair Will Be Held For Employees, With The Store Having Supposedly Gotten (10) or (11) Pair Total. A Little More Sweet Talking With Employees And She Was Able To Convince Them To Give Her A Wristband (#11) And To NOT Put It On Her So That I Could Put It On Myself
My Contact For The Info Swears That The Store Has 12-14 Pair To Be Released To The Public, So If That's The Case, I Might Just Have Secured A Pair This Afternoon





Long Story Short,

I Will Be Eating Hot Box For Dinner Tonight







Now Just Relying On The Sneakergods Up There To Take Care Of The Rest

From all accounts, these appear to be a $170 MSRP or lower given everything I've seen.. Especially the ATC III outsole/midsole base. I mean you got one photo of the pink sockliner and the stitching is visible at the seams.

I think I'm through here. Not a single person caring what the shoe is actually about, quality wise.

The hunt is now so crazy that it doesn't even matter what the shoe consists of.. Had it been just a normal QS for $245, you would have a lot more people wondering just what the heck am I buying here.... Now it's no questions asked. Successful play Nike.

I just got a pair yesterday and here's some things I noticed about them:
  • They fit pretty true to size, if you wore a 12 in last years IIIs you'll be a 12 in these.
  • The suede is top notch, brushable suede and the hidden seam on the toe look great with this material
  • The strap is very thin and rubberized. I was expecting it to be thicker.
  • The triangle cutouts on the medial side look great with the thickness of the suede. It gives them some depth you usually don't see on a shoe.
  • The mesh is very thick, the only comparison that comes to mind is the the mesh from the XIIIs. It'll likely crease but only in one particular spot.
  • The footbed is a nice, stitched down pigskin with perforations on the forefoot.
  • The sculpting on the back is killer, totally makes the shoe for me.
  • The snake texture is very soft and will definitely lead to a lot of problems down the line for people (especially on the grey pair, since it'll be more visible).
  • And the single most disappointing thing: the midsole is not colored to the core. You can see the midsole over painting and it may end up cracking (I love'em, but I don't know if I can tolerate cracking on a shoe that retails for $245).
This review was perfect and agree with him on everything. Creasing on the toe box will be pretty bad IMO, would be just like the mesh Jordan 1s that came out a few years back or even the KO's. But his last bullet point. The midsole, man Nike F'd up on that. The midsole WILL DEFINITELY CRACK. Just like Jordan 3's and 4's. This will be a huge problem when people wear their pairs (or will people wear these). Sad that a shoe retailing for $245 and the resell in the thousands is going to look horrible once cracking appears.
Bottom line, if you're going to charge $250 I'd expect it not to crack. You could sell me $250 IIIs and IVs all day long  -- if you could guarantee me they aren't going to crack.

Always going to crack unless you're talking about the 2003 releases and before. I still rock my 2003 white cement IIIs and they don't crack, peel or any of that stuff because the midsoles were not painted the same way.
