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.Originally Posted by shindo03
Jordan is an ICON it is branded. You can show a 5 year old the logo and he'll know its Jordan maybe not the person but they know its called Jordan. You can ask someone that's 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, etc and they know Jordan. 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.
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.
