    Are these Nike and Adidas stores worth going to in NYC? Definitely going to Flight Club.

    Are you looking to buy something new or just see rare crazy shit? I'd go to Flight Club and Stadium Goods personally. Both have crazy stuff you'll never see again. Nike just opened a new store up there that's supposed to be awesome. I'd check it out if I had the time. 21 Mercer is the boutique style Nike store and they do Bespokes there but honestly there's not much to see there. Here's the new one:

    I liked those a lot too. Ordered them just to try on a boost and see the colors in person. The white fleck is more noticeable than I thought. HOWEVA, the lacing and tongue if the shoe was far too tight on the top of my foot. I know they would probably loosen over time but I don’t know if a boost will ever be comfortable on my foot. Had to send my first adidas pair back.

    Urban Necessities just opened a NYC store too. I think its supposed to be somewhere in the vicinity of Flight Club.

    You definitely need to hit up the new Nike store

    Maybe you just ordered the wrong size. Being too tight should never be an issue with PK. You should probably go up a half size from whatever you got.

    petere1588 Well-Known Member

    Yeah maybe I should. I am an 11 in Nike, can fit into some 10.5, but 11 is my preferred size. Maybe I should try 11.5, just hope they aren’t too big in other parts.

    Hmm. I would think an 11 would be perfect for you then. It's weird that it was tight on top for you. PK is so stretchy.

    Taking in a movie at the mall and went through finish line quick and saw some young kid with the Witherspoon 97’s and said nothing here is better than what you have on, thinking I was giving him props.

    He just smiled and kind of nodded. Then his family came up and spoke nothing but Spanish. Hoping he just didn’t understand me, not that he didn’t know he had a ~750ish pair of sneaks on.

    Never been a big fan of 90's but I usually like special Quick Strikes like these. Definitely going after them.

    Was walking by Kith Saturday and 6 people were outside in line while the store was open. I didn’t know what they were doing and walked inside. Turned out they were buying yeezys. I could have gotten a pair if I waited outside for 5 min.

    I live across the street from the Nice Kicks store in LA. On Friday night around 8pm there were 10ish people waiting outside. The store still had pretty much a full size run available yesterday and had a decent number of pairs from the release last month as well.

    I guess they are losing traction. I thought the 350 looked cool. I hate the 700

    So Nike isn't dropping anything for Air Max Day this year. Instead they are doing a drive to donate pairs. I can't hate that but damn, they could have done both. Drop a SW or Atmos Elephant level hyped pair and make all boutiques run a raffle for them. Donate a pair of kicks and you get a raffle ticket. Easy. Not all that surprised bc it's March and we hadn't heard anything about a retro but still kind of a bummer. Oh well, give me more cash to work on my Jordan collection.

    https://solecollector.com/news/2019/03/nike-air-max-day-2019-give-fresh-air-campaign

    With the launch of the Air Max 1 in 1987, a revolution began. In the years since, Nike and “Air” have become synonymous while expanding its loyal following.

    Although March 26, 1987, marks the beginning of the epic Air Max journey, this Air Max Day launches a new chapter focused on taking action. We know that change happens when people come together. Give Fresh Air is a rally cry to unify sneaker culture around a shared passion to ignite change. Nike and our partners will create ways to give “Air” to support local organizations and champion the power of community.

    The problem is the 700 being ugly af and having a $300 price. The upcoming 350 will sell out quick. I didnt think it was going to be possible but Adidas came up with a pretty good plan to revive them. Limited numbers plus releasing different versions to different areas is gonna make like a perfect storm.

    You think so? I think going back to small batch is their only chance but I think a lot of people are just over them and over Kanye in general. I'm interested to see how it goes though. When is the next release?

    Wasn't someone in here trying to get the Asia colorway for the upcoming Yeezy release? Looks like Yeezy Mafia is doing pre-orders of all three colorways for an extra $50-60.

    I think so. They drop 3/16. Ive seen people already trying to work deals with people from different countries trying to get the other two releases. If nothing else I think its gonna drive the resell value of 350's back up some.

    Flight Club was so fucking cool. I should have taken a bunch of pics but I was in a hurry. They had a pair of mags on display for $40k. I was looking for all of dblplay1212 air maxes and they didn't have a couple of your better ones, at least not out on the floor.

    dblplay1212 or anyone else how long does the stock x bud take to be approved or declined?

    It'll be approved whenever somebody wants to sell to you at that price. It won't be declined, but anybody can bid higher than you at any time, basically knocking your bid out of there.

    A bid? It's up to the seller. Think of StockX as Ebay. I can list a shoe on there for $200. You can offer $180. I can accept your offer of $180 or I can leave my price at $200 and wait for you or someone else to buy it at that price. You aren't buying from StockX. StockX is just the platform for people to list pairs for sale. After a sale is made, the seller ships to Stockx. They verify them as legit and then ship to the buyer. They are the middle man.

    If you bid $180 and are the high bidder, you're basically waiting for someone to accept your offer. The seller at $200 may do that or the seller at $220 may swoop in and accept your offer. No seller may be willing to do that though. The only way to guarantee you get the pair is to buy at the low ask price.

    When do you need to know by? I have a bid going which I’ll cancel in a week or two if it doesn’t get accepted. I got a kid in the hospital so I don’t need to buy two pairs right now.

    Just the night before the release. Cancel your bid now and we'll get them when they release.

    Good luck with the little one.

    So I'm not really a sneaker guy. Where them to work everyday and buy a new pair of adidas every month but usually whatever nmd/boosts are on sale.

    I'm thinking about buying a pair of the new game of thrones ultraboosts. Will I be able to just get on the website and buy them like any other pair of shoes or will they sell out like immediately?

    Thanks

    What are some places to buy online? Always been an air max or shox guy but I'm not dead certain on those. Looking for some Bama color styles. Yea, yea I know. They don't have to be official Alabama themed releases. Just looking for some combo of red/white/black/grey and not breaking the bank.

    I really don't know what to expect with that release at all. Hype around boost dying down and so many different GoT versions releasing at the same time makes want to say they shouldn't be an immediate sell out. But I really have no idea what the numbers are. I know some Hibbets are getting them so it should be atleast a semi GR. That should help out. Do you know which one you want? My best guess is the white one with the icy blue hits will probably be the quickest to go.

    I just bought these and they're sold out at JCrew now but resell isn't crazy high. Maybe a little darker than Bama Crimson but a solid shoe

    The ice Boosts looked real nice, but I also think the fire ones would really pop.

    This is probably a really stupid question, but are the shoes on StockX new or used? I'd like to get a pair of gray or some type of neutral color UBs to wear to work.
