Pretty cool info that I found out today:

So apparently if you have a shoe that's too small but it's deadstock, you can exchange it at Foot Locker for a different size...the guy I spoke to said you can get it in a different colorway as well. Obv I'm ganna do that for my Speed Turfs

For the two pairs thing...I actually have 2 pairs of the Lebron Zoom Soldiers cuz I like em a lot. I thought I would get s*** for having two pairs of the same shoe so I didn't include em in the pic. Didn't know it was standard practice for sneakerheads lol. The only other duplicate pair I would get is Concords probably...I already have 4 pairs I consider beaters.

With all these Jordan 4 Breds I have not seeming to go up in value, I think it is my destiny to keep two pair of 12s for myself
11-30-2012 , 11:01 AM
That's pretty insane...what sites are you trying to sell on?
11-30-2012 , 03:49 PM
I went around to the 4 malls in our area on black friday and hit up 3-4 sneaker stores in each of them. I scooped up like 12 pairs total I believe from size 10-13 and was going to just sell them on ebay. However, they seem to be topping out around 200 bucks right now and 30 profit per pair was not really what I had in mind. Im gonna hold onto them until about 10 days before Christmas and reevaluate. Hopefully they get up in the $250 range. The ultimate plan was to make enough to keep 3 pairs and give one to my pops and one to my bro for Christmas (thinly veiled brag haha), but that is looking like less and less of a reality.

Only 413 pairs in the world
assuming they are sold out everywhere, what forum should i frequent to cop a pair of these? hypebeast probably?

Is no one else ganna post their collection? For better or worse (probably worse) I'm seeing more and more shoes that I would get into whenever people post the stuff they're into and/or have just by being exposed to it lol. So many nice shoes out there, I'm ganna be broke forever.

Oh yeah, my Bred 4s came in today Some slight scratch marks on the shoe from packaging I guess, but it was nbd. I wish there was a better Bred colorway from AJ aside from the 1s that incorporated more red into the shoe. There's the 11s but I like the 4s more...and I know there's the 13s but meh, I can't get into 13s. No offense to anyone that likes em...but they just seem like AJs with an acne problem to me

Do you guys notice your taste in sneakers changing over time? For me, when I just started getting into sneakers I absolutely hated AJ 8s, but now I'm excited for the Bugs Bunny, Chrome, and Aqua releases next year. Not as much as the Royal Blue 1s though

This will probably be my next pick up:

Got a lot of crap for it in the fashion thread but f*** em lol, I like these shoes a lot.

really don't think you'll be able to get a pair as they were a 2011 Black Friday release

and since there was only 413 made i think that anyone that got a pair by now prob wants to keep them

its a shame cause they are the best skytop 3s imo

ill post mine sometime in the next week

mines wont look as clean as yours tho

really need to by that marks cleaning kit

I didn't think mine was that great, but thanks for the compliment lol. This probably goes without saying, but it's not like it's a competition or anything. It would just be cool to see what we all have just to expose ourselves to shoes we might potentially like. Fwiw a couple of the shoes in my pic I bought used cuz I wanted em but didn't wanna pay the price for a DS pair. Just thought I'd point that out in case it seems like I'm just trying to show off how much $ I spend on shoes or something...the last few pairs I bought were only purchased cuz they were on sale (and obv the Bred 4s are cheapest at retail price)

Here's a list of legit sites:

A couple of sites I posted in the OP aren't there. Again, my bad. The link was provided by jstar25 on youtube, and this guy is the stone cold nuts imo
12-01-2012 , 12:24 PM
surprised no one mentioned best site for sneaker news imo.

also is good site for getting stuff on discounts as well as for when new stuff drops like the bred IVs

My Military Blue 4s came in em for $180 shipped on ebay. I was happy with the price until I went to House of Hoops today and found out they still had pairs a couple days before I showed up to get a legit check on them...still am happy though, just not as much. If anyone cares, I went to get a legit check because the production dates on the tags of the shoes didn't match...but apparently that doesn't really matter.

I like the Military Blues way more than the Breds by far. The white, light grey, and blue just work so well together. I guess it flew under the radar, and I'm definitely not complaining about that.

I guess it's safe to say that 4s are my favorite AJs since I have 3 different cw's for em (Cavs, Breds, Military Blues), next to the 11s (even though the only cw I'm crazy about is the Concords)

Oh man, this takes me back. Jordans were my first love, when I was like 14.

That's my Jordan collection from back in like 2006. After that, I went on a big Air Max bend, I still have a lot of those.

I'm kinda boring now though, I pretty much wear these 7 days a week:
12-04-2012 , 09:37 PM
Was that your collection when you were 14? You/your family must be loaded lol.
12-04-2012 , 10:13 PM
Started at 14, that was my collection at 20, I'm 26 now.

I was one of the first people in LA that bought/resold quickstrikes and limited editions on ebay and stuff in like '99 - '01, so I worked my way up from 1 pair to about 150 without using any extra $ other than the $90 I spent on my first pair.
12-04-2012 , 11:08 PM
Ah, pretty sick lol. I don't suppose you still have some Jordans in 11 that you're trying to get rid of? Oh is it just Air Maxs?

what was your top 5 favourite jordans(or any sneakers in general) that you owend?
12-06-2012 , 03:38 AM
Holy s***, Galen Hall itt. I need to start learning people's 2p2 names

Anyway, I'm torn between these 3 shoes. Can you guys help me decide on one?

Oreo 6s

Metallic 5s

Bordeaux 7s

12-06-2012 , 05:32 AM
Btw, I would take the lace locks off the 5s if I get em. I don't like em that much

12-06-2012 , 07:24 AM
i would go for the 5's just cause there classic's and can go with everything

i do really like those Oreo 6s tho. do like the 7's aswell but they come 3rd in that line up for me
12-06-2012 , 04:41 PM
Yeah you're right, thanks a lot dude. Still waiting on your collection pic lol...but if you don't wanna show it then it's obv your choice, nbd

I consider these my new grails - The Doernbecher 1s:

Cheaper than the Paranormans and I like em a lot more. $600 at Flight Club Los Angeles...hopefully no one buys em by the time I can get em.
12-06-2012 , 05:21 PM
i went to go and take a pic there but all i have is a laptop webcam (in know get with the times but i own a **** phone and dont have a camera lol) so it was really bad quality and you could'nt really see things right. Will get hold of a camera tho

Those Doernbecher's are sick btw
12-07-2012 , 06:13 AM
Haha yeah, I really hope I can get em. I'm ganna ask Flight Club if I can put a down payment on them so they can hold the shoes.

Found Oreo 6s for $190 and Metallic 5s for $170 (w/out lace lock)

I run gud. Now I just gotta hit up the Commerce so I won't have to blow the last bits of my BR on shoes lol
