Banned.  No buying/selling outside the buy/sell area - and we're certainly not going to let you do something as sleazy as selling "info."

However, being a public company, there's something called a "control environment" which I'm assuming that Vericker and his staff believe doesn't apply to their actions.

It doesn't take more than five minutes to go to www.nikebiz.com and pull up Nike's "Inside the Lines" booklet. 

If you really want to cause an issue and report 21 Mercer, Vericker and his staff I'd suggest calling Nike's "Alertline" number at 1-888-836-2463.

Because I'm assuming that the District Manager associated with 21 Mercer is going to be thrilled with formal complaints of unethical, weak control environment and misappropriation of company assets being formally investigated. 

Enough is enough.







Right, we can complain and post pictures all we want, but nothing will change that way.
If you guys really want to change something, call corporate and report them.

give the hype some time to die down... people who missed out on the Yeezy 1 will trade for the Yeezy 2 (for those of you who loaded up on the previous release)

  • The AY1 drops and people are immediately stoked for the AY2. Hype is building from day one.
  • Kanye starts wearing AY2 prototypes before WTT tour and people are even more hyped. Speculation is already starting that the AY2 might be the most hyped shoe ever.
  • WTT tour was when hype really got big. People saw Ye wearing the finished Solars and freaked. Everyone wanted them at this point, but it was mostly people who were up on shoes. Regular people didn't know about them and hadn't gotten a good enough look at them to be sure.
  • April rolls around, and the rumored release date is coming up. This is where the game changed: Nike realized how big the hype was at this point and they knew that the AY2 had the potential to be the biggest release ever. Additional points to this:
  1. At this point, everyone had seen the shoes and wanted them. This includes heads, hypebeasts, regular folk like me, and literally everyone's $&*#ing grandma. It didn't help that Jay-Z got his pair about this time (I think) and people were really stoked, especially when he shouted them out at his SXSW show.
  2. Nike realized how appealing this shoe was, so they pushed the release date (claiming the april date was just an announcement) to produce more pairs. 
  3. This is the main point of this post, READ THIS IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR ME RAMBLE: The Yeezy 2's are an entirely different release. The reason Nike didn't supply the Galaxies, the Lebrons, any hyped Jordan, is because they don't appeal to everyone. Lets face it, as dope as these shoes are, regular people don't want them. Only heads and hypebeasts want these shoes. Nike knows the demand for their shoes, trust this. They know that if they release these shoes in limited quantities, they will sell out, but they aren't going to risk having extras laying around for people to be calling wack as soon as the hype dies. I wouldn't doubt that Nike loses money on GR's for lame sneakers that nobody really wants, but will pick up on a whim. I would never wear the SB Lebrons, but I can see myself wearing Y2's everyday, especially if I copped both CWs. This is why I believe Nike has changed their ways with this release.
  4. The fact that Nike typically doesn't do huge announcements and such for hyped releases is another reason I believe the Y2's are different. There was no official Nike announcement with a set date for the Lebrons or Foams, but the Y2's had an April announcement date? That's odd for Nike to do, unless they've got another plan.
  • April announcement passes, people are salty. MORE hype builds.
  • Assorted production pictures get leaked. This doesn't normally happen with shoes. More hype.
  • Nike implements the Twitter RSVP system. Personally, I think they did this in anticipation of this release once they realized the magnitude of the hype. They knew that after the GFoam drop, there would be riots and pandemonium when this released, regardless of quantity if the hypebeasts didn't get satisfied. Again, more hype and speculation about the release.
  • Early celeb release. I covered reasons for this in the previous post, but again, Nike wants our money and wants more hype.
  • Drawing out the release info as long as they can built more hype, and only cemented that they were gonna NDC release in my eyes. It's kind of messed up that Nike drew it out so long without telling boutiques, because it kind of made it difficult for them, but they had to.
  • Release info drops, and then people freak. Look at this thread, and tell me the hype isn't at an all time high.

Now lets think. Given how much time has passed since the AY1 and hype was building, Nike had plenty of time to plan this out, and make sure they made as much money as possible with it. Call them a hating corporation or whatever, but they want money. There's no reason for them to hold out on us with this one, because everyone will buy it and it WILL sell out, no matter the quantity. The only reason these aren't a GR at this point is because, really, GR's aren't cool. When was the last time a really hyped GR came out? Never. The Yeezy 2's will be a large stock, and if you really want them, you'll get them. And if I'm wrong on this one, oh well. I won't be salty. They're just shoes. Take what you will from this.
This guy has 11 posts..... and I can pretty much sum it up for you guys. Its just simple math. You know that shoe that released in December 23rd.... what are they called? Oh the concords! They were at every brick and mortar store plus online. Everyone and there mom was saying "The prices will fall when they release and the hype will die because realistically you can purchase the older retro 11's or the DMPs." Makes sense. But, nope pairs were still going for around the $400 range....and people were getting trampled and fights were breaking out. Really ever since December Nike was on media alert from the Concords, then the Galaxys. If this guy knew the numbers then he wouldn't say anything, he would actually be contradicting himself. He is saying this shoe is hitting on genres of people and that Jordan's don't.... which okay I get what he's saying in that case let compare. The Banned 1 release was about 100 to 150 per store at Nike Outlets and ONLY Nike Outlets. Multiply that by under 100 Outlets getting them is give or take 10,000 pairs. Concords in the U.S. man every freaking store and Online at almost every store. Your probably looking at over 200,000 pairs easily. And THAT wasn't enough for the masses. WHY in the world would you think a pair of shoes that is appealing to all sorts of demographics and genres are going to have an adequate amount? They ARE not going to manufacture more of these than the Concords, maybe the Yeezy 1's but no where near what your thinking. Let's not confuse Optimism and Reality. Good Luck to everyone!
Yep, pretty much.  If you really think it'll be easy to cop Yeezy 2s on NDC you're just fooling yourself.  I really hope I'm wrong though.

Vandal's not going to cave on the price. It's a win/win for him. At $100 each, he makes a nice little stack. If nobody ponies up, he wins too as no cats will know exactly when and they'll be refreshing all weekend, eventually people will drop out or lose focus, no skin off his back. If he sells em for really cheap guess what... everybody and their grandma knows the NDC drop. This is the biggest release in years, step up to the plate if you want to stop worrying and put together your gameplan.

cuz you're doing the same thing some of these shops are doing, making people spend a $100 for a CHANCE to get them... and you and i both know even if you know the exact second they're going up, it's still gonna be DUMB STOOPID hard to cop. a super SLIM chance...

you know how many people knew the AJKO's were dropping at 7PM this past monday night and they still came up short? the thread was FULL of people coming up short, only a handful of us got thru... and i'm SURE they had more of those for sale than these...

if you were being more reasonable i wouldn't give you a hard time, but i am SICK of seeing everyone going mega OD trying to cash in on these...

this dude i've done business with b4 (didn't even make money off him, sold 'em for what i got 'em for) hit me up earlier saying he got a size 12 from the mercer RSVP and talked like he was gonna look out for me, but then guess what he wanted? guess what the "hook up" was?!?

$2,800...


and he's getting them for box price...


i swear to god if i could catch more pairs than my own i would legit help out some of the homies around here i know for a fact are just trying to WEAR them.

we don't have enough of those people on this forum anymore...


not trying to whine, but dayum yo... maybe i'll just get with the program and be a greedy bastard like everyone else...

I think I may be the only one that likes the platinums better than the solar reds..Its not that I don't like them I just feel like the detail of the shoe is more visible on the plats making them more appealing imo.

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.
Somebody please help this guy out that's actually been on Niketalk for at least a year. He thinks this shoe will be manufactured in Concord numbers. A shoe that basically hit all stores online and brick and mortar. This show will be in numbers of Galaxy Foams. Mom and Pops.... HOH...... Major Footlocker/Champs...... and Nike.com (Galaxies got pulled). Everywhere that got Galaxy Foams will have most likely have Yeezys. And Galaxies did have an online drop ready but it got pulled and reallocated to 21 mercer like 3 months later. And 1200 pairs man lol 1200 pairs of Galaxies... so only 60 stores got the Galaxies lol......each store got 2 full size runs and they hooked up F&F and then they only had 10 to 12. If only 1 store in each of all the states got them there would have been 1000 and more than 1 store got them in each state man.....soooooo PLEASE for everyone on this threads and all the noobies getting there hopes up on a mass release stop listening to this guy. Especially if he thinks Galaxies for made in a number of 1,200 and he thinks Yeezys will be made in the 200,000..... Why? They are both NRG releases and NRG is not Nasa Research Group it is ENERGY which is Nike's new way of saying limited. Galaxy was about 60 pairs per state and 100 pairs in big cities... 40 per small state.....more like 3000 or more pairs made..... Yeezys will be around the same if not a little more like 5000. One thing this dude is right about is there will be more than Yeezy 1 and most have been allocated to Nike.com....
