Sums up the post your about to see.

Many of you may think that I am simply "beating a dead horse" here but I view it differently. I feel that I at least owe it to contribute all ofthis to the people who spend their money at SHOP GENTEI and or future customers. What I'm doing here is ultimately for the greater good. This has movedfar past the damn "Yeezy's."

I got my pair, for $215 + tax at DTLR.

It's not about getting them or not, it's about the audacity and arrogance some of these shops have when it comes to the customer/store relationship.

Raffle/Auction/Rape prices etc. etc. where expected, that is not what I'm writing/posting about. I am addressing the lack of organization, the attitude of"I don't give a $@*!" as you will see below and ultimately the LACK OF BALLS OR RESPECT to address what happened and attempt to at least look atit from the customers point of view. Gentei could have sold them for $1000 for all I care, that is not the issue. Give it to the customers straight, tellthem HOW MUCH and HOW MANY.

Lets move on what I woke up to this Morning...

Had a message when I woke up directing me to Olivier's (Gentei Owner) Blog. Check it out here: http://21runnin.blogspot.com/


SAY WHAT!???

Those kids were told by you (OLIVER) that they had their pairs on "lock."

When I got there you told me "These two guys have the last two pairs accounted for." Now this???

Man up, and tell it how it is.

I called dude up that was 10th in line and told him to look at the blog he was


Then got a text message telling me to look at "deermatt" recent posts on ISS...

BTW "deermatt" is dude all the way on the left of the picture. Oliver is the one who looks like his girlfriend is getting fondled behind the camera,therefore pouting. To make it easy to follow along just look at the dates of the posts.





ORLY??????
No holds or anything???? And on top of that I'm luck to get them at Gentei for ONLY $250???? SAY WORD????

"So how many is Gentei getting???"



ORLY?!
So about this no holds for employees thing you said...




Who's mad??? You got them early good for you. You deserve it, after all you work there. Nothing special. Arrogance doesn't increase your Exp. son. Oh wait you have more...



Dude had 3 pairs of the first ones LOL. I'm not mad at that, its all good. Your cool with the peeps there, hell you work there. But why not tellcustomers straight up how many you have at the shop "For sale"? You clearly know, you bought 3.

*3 pairs out of 18 to an employee just so he can flip on the bay.
But hey its not my shop.



Dang 2 months rent? Really??? Bmore rent must be hella cheap. Reason I say cheap is because...



This mean you only made about $500 profit off of flipping these two. Wait maybe you sold your third pair for RAPE??? Is that the rest of the 2 monthrent...


Ohhh, I guess. Might have to move to Bmore. My rent is $1150 a month in College Park.

Lets move on to the Second release... *Look at dates*


One pair, that's cool again. Like I said your an employee, good for you. Oh wait you have what...



So you have 2??? Did you sell your third to an R&B singer that looks like a Pygmy????

This next post made me LOL



Son you work there. Who's in a high place??? G*T*F*O*H with that BS arrogance and attitude.



Its none of my business who you or Oliver sell them to. But I do feel like you owe it to the customer to honestly let them know how many are available sincethe jump. How are you going to tell them 11 pairs, then 12, then a few hours before release 9???? Now that is BS! Be Honest.

Like I said I could care less about how much you sold them for, who you sold them to, or even if you decided not to sell them to the general public. AllI'm criticizing is the lack of ORGANIZATION, RESPECT, ETHICS, and TESTICLES you guys are exhibiting. I'm addressing you directly because I knowyou're reading this, I know you lurk.

Lets just see if you can man up this time and respond. But like we all know, you probably wont.

Like I said before I'm doing it for the greater good. I have a pair, I could of just kept it moving, but attitudes like the one this dude Matt and Oliverare exhibiting are not OK in my book. The only thing I regret is recommending the store at one point in time and dropping money to feed these dudes. I didthis for the sneaker community and for the people that spend money at establishments like this. Take the info or leave it its up to you. I did it because Iwould of greatly appreciated it if someone else did these kinds of things for me. If you keep doing business there then that's cool more power to you. Ifyou ever get treated like trash at this spot or feel disrespected, all I can say is "I told you so, you should of known better."

But hey you live and you learn right. Never again my friend, never again.


That is all my NT Brothers.

"Good night, and good luck."




P.S.

Hey Oliver, maybe you should replace your mission statement and customer service policies with this...

Damn, I thought Oliver and Gentei had moved on and grown from the past debacle... *word to MyT's "boycott sals" references* but Oliver'sresponse on his blog displays a truly nauseating level of arrogance. I didn't visit Gentei too often, probably once a month, but when I did I always wastreated great and always left with multiple items thanks to their crucial clearances, but I don't know man... I planned on heading down there this weekendto pick up some stuff but I'll definitely have to think about it after seeing his response. I don't remember if it's Oliver or one of the otheremployee's who posts on here occasionally but he could've easily got in touch with 731balla through a PM and told him he didn't like the way he wasbadmouthing the store or explain the situation, but nope...

this would make for a great washington post article....

took some time, but very well presented.

a lot of it reverts back to people being two totally different personas once removed from the internet...

F'the shoes.

Whoever cleans that bathroom deserves a "bonus".

A "corporate" like bonus.

Thanks for the quote.

"I feel good" like Stephaine Mills out this beeatch.

[hr][/hr]Personally, there are alot of P.E.s I will never get, because I don't have access to them, or not shelling out the $$$ to obtain them.

Some of you need to chalk these up as P.E.s.

You shouldn't expect every store to carry things consistently like Social Studies and Cmon does. This ain't the 80s, and most "beasts" arejust gonna be there next time around. [Chris Rock, "Bigger and Blacker"] "Thank Ya Sar! Got them shoooooes Sar? I's be waiting rite outside sar!"

Y'all got the tale of the tape.

Pick and choose your "e-battles" wisely.

Signed,
E.O.H.

Dude said on ISS:
[hr][/hr] "I have debt, so who knows..."
Sorry dude, but flipin' a pair of two of these ain't gonna cut it.



And if it does, you really got no real debt.


What up "SBvj426". In your neck of the woods next weekend. EARLY!

This should not really surprise you.

Look at how Major carried the release. But atleast they give you some kind of chance to get them.

Oh well, never been there, after this, will never go there.

They can live off the beasts.

well damn.

I have been to Gentei a few times and was treated with the utmost respect..however, I can't agree with any of these cats (at least if they are all on thesame page).

I feel you 731..why is it so hard for people to man up and tell the people like it is.

731balla i stand behind the whole way after going through all that! Like you said eventhough we ended up getting a pair we could of left it alone but, NO wedeserve more than that crappy service we got! Dude 11 even buys a matching shirt for his Yeezy's from the store while waiting and then gets the news aboutnot getting 'em and still because such a great local customer decides to keep the shirt!

Not everyone can survive of the hype. Booty-tiques only get a few hyped out releases a year. They can only live of of customer service relationsand word of mouth. Once one dries up it a wrap

Sup dude nice meeting you at Commonwealth (i was with yoVAni 4 DC, wearing the Hundreds hat ) did you end up getting a pair?

And i was in awe as soon as 731balla hit me up about his detective work



There is no doubt that the shoes went to friends and family, but to boast about it then talk about your customers like we're @#!&%(

Good stuff Al

My dude just hit me up talking about, "where on his blog did he post that???"

Went to his blog and it was deleted.


At least we now know that he has heard of my post/s. I am still waiting for a PM or a public response.

I guess that would be asking too much from someone without a backbone.

MAN UP son!

I'm not doing this for attention, I'm doing it for ANSWERS.

Anybody on here can talk S*hi*t about people in a very small forum (Your blog). Why not come out on NIKETALK and address all of those people???
