That is the fastest that I have seen a sneaker go that I really didn’t expect to go so fast. I mean, don’t get me wrong cause the sneaker looks good, but I really thought I would have time to get it in the morning… WRONG. Sold out online in a couple of hours and their were lines in front of the store and malls as they opened up.
Funny thing is that I didn’t see anybody wearing them yesterday. I usually see someone wearing them. Lets see what happens in a week. I should see them in the wild.
Eastbay is the place to watch though because they will sneak up on you and get some more and you better be there when it happens. Finishline is good for that too and its how I got my . So keep looking every day for the next 2 weeks as unsold (if that is possible0 sneakers get sent back or if Nike has another shipment coming (if scheduled).
These sneaker were suppossed to be limited. If I remembered that, I would have just bought them online and be done with it. Eastbay somehow sold out by 1am Saturday morning and then by 7am had some more (in most sizes) but I didn’t get it (d’oh!!!)
Is that patent leather already cracked??? LMAO
Why did this sneaker get sold out? One answer; Speculators (he same ones that effected the housing market). How do I figure this? Look at eBay and look at Sneakerfiles post on the sneaker release. For a special edition Jordan it only has about 33 posts. Jordan (and more specifically Air Jordan 23) usually gets more comments but not these.
I love me some Sneakerfiles. I swear if Nike could just datamine Sneakerfiles, The Shoe Game and Nickicks for research they would know exactly what color, looks and style their new sneakers should have.
I’m not a fan of that “fin” in the back but I’ll admit it is unique
Since I have decided that I will be doing my best to find a pair of these somewhere online that I have shopped before, I think who ever is reading this should try to come back to my little blog here… that is if you are looking for these sneakers too. (for more shot of this sneaker look here)
These come out 02.23.2008 THIS SATURDAY
So get your cash/credit card ready. I really wish I got them… I guess I will have to settle for the general release black and red Stealths and the white and red… and maybe that other color.
