    I don't think it's as easy as just blaming it on the bots. Sure that's a chunk of it but there was legit millions of actual people trying too. It was a free $800. Hell even Amazon crashes at times. I just don't think a server exists that can handle that amount of traffic at a specific time. I definitely agree something needs to change. Just not sure what. Maybe more shock drops, scratch off things, and stuff like that. But that just rewards people that can sit on SNKRS all day or have the inside scoop. The best solution would be to somehow find a way to actually limit people to one account and then do raffles but idk how they can verify an account to the point that people can't make multiples.

    It might be crazy but they are ugly shoes. I would get them to sell and buy shoes I actually would wear. I wonder if it’s just the hype of knowing you can flip them easily or people that actually want them that drives up the price more.

    Yes and yes. Some people like them bc they like the way they look, a lot of people like them bc they are hyped, and everyone wants them bc of the flip.

    If they dropped as mass produced gr with no collab attached, they'd sit. Same is true for every non-retro these days.

    Thought of this thread a few days ago while watching an episode of The Chi on Showtime. One of the characters is a sneaker head and he had to come up with some money fast and was going to flip a few.

    Pulled out a bag of Banned 1’s, Zebra Yeezy’s, Legend Blue 11’s, Bred 11’s, And Black Cement 3’s. They went to select which one to sell and he had a backstory of how he waited in the cold for 3 days for them, etc. Just funny to see how attached he was to them and didn’t want to sell them. Same feeling I get when I think about trying to unload some.

    Unless they are ugly Travis Scott AJ1’s that you can easily get 700 bucks more than what you paid. Unload away!

    I wanted to try and get them because my teenaged daughter likes Travis Scott and thought it would get me some street cred with her.

    Only 1 pair and they are a 9.5 for $350. That's actually a solid price for a ds pair.

    I get fitted at running shoe stores. They get me not only the right size but type for my style of running, pronation and arch. I highly suggest it. Two of those will be overkill for a casual sneaker wearer but they will get you into the proper size.

    There's so much variation in sizing from shoe to shoe. I'm a 10.5-11 in most but have gotten a 10 and an 11.5 in a couple. That's a pretty wide range. Knowing my TTS is nice but it really doesn't mean much when each shoe varies so much.

    What the point of the app then? Will it give you specific size for every type of shoe?

    Follow to very basic and easy steps to let Nike Fit scan your feet using your phone’s camera, and from the 13 data points it collects it delivers to you the exact shoe size you should wear per silhouette. Truth is, Nike’s sizing is not uniform. Retros run bigger, running shoes snugger. Upon your first scan, the app will deliver to you a range of sizes and when you select a specific model, it’ll tell you what size you should buy.

    I hope they consider the width of some shoes when making recommendations (example: I have a wide foot, and I can’t fit my foot in a kd 11 even if if size up)

    Yea I hope they do too. And this has been needed for a while. Hell I'd be happy with a just a chart from them saying +.5 or -.5 for every silhouette. I have probably half a dozen shoes that I can't wear bc I bought them in a size that was too small. It was my first time ordering that style shoe and fucked up. I just default to +.5 on every new style now.

    Kinda sounds like what you’d get at a running shoe store except for with different type of shoes especially since it appears you have to go to a store to do it. It would be cool if it becomes an app. But, I guess if it was an app you’d probably only need to use it once.

    Did you read the article? It is an app. It scans your feet. Read it.

    Whether you want to accept it or not, size does matter. Wearing the proper shoe size is proven to optimize performance, but for the casual wearers and city commuters, rocking the incorrect digits can lead to long-term problems and some jacked up feet. According to Nike, 60% of people at any given time are walking around in the wrong shoe size, and half a million people complain about buying the wrong shoe size ever year – and that’s just in North America. There are a number of reasons why this occurs. Lack of access to shoes, lack of understanding of how fit can vary among different models, and even something as trivial as personal vanity contributes to why this persists in 2019.

    Things are about to change with the debut of Nike Fit, a foot-scanning solution already integrated into the Nike app. Follow to very basic and easy steps to let Nike Fit scan your feet using your phone’s camera, and from the 13 data points it collects it delivers to you the exact shoe size you should wear per silhouette. Truth is, Nike’s sizing is not uniform. Retros run bigger, running shoes snugger. Upon your first scan, the app will deliver to you a range of sizes and when you select a specific model, it’ll tell you what size you should buy. Select Nike retail stores such as the House of Innovation locations in NYC and Shanghai will offer Nike Fit to customers with the help of sales associates.

    The benefits are clear – consumers will be wearing the right size, and their customer service load should theoretically diminish. It will also shape the way the brand manufactures its product to tailor to the needs of the masses. It’s a win/win situation that fits today’s e-commerce landscape.

    It'll be a nice feature to figure out which Nike style size you need, but does nothing for other brands. I just got some Asics for work and an 11.5 gives me a thumb width loose space, whereas Nike's is 11. Converse is even smaller, like 10-10.5.

    Edit: If Nike figures it out and it's a quality app, other shoe companies will release their own version I'm sure.

    From what I gather you can go into those stores and have someone do it for you but it should be in the Nike App that we all can use.

    Right, I worded that poorly. I meant it is going to be in the Nike app, not that Nike should put it in the Nike app.

    Employee store. They apparently restocked some stuff a couple of days ago. Got some JTH Bio Beige 3's and Levi 4's among other stuff. 40% off. Was going to see if anyone had access and could grab me a pair of the bio beige.

    I have some brand new ASICS running shoes. Size 10.5 they aren’t going to be “stylish” ones they were purely bought for running. I have like 5 pairs and want to get another pair of Nike running ones. If anyone runs in ASICS I’d be willing to do a straight up trade the 3 pairs for of Nikes or 150 for the 3 pairs. They are good shoes I just don’t want to wait 900 miles to get another pair of Nike running shoes. If anyone is interested I’ll pm them pics these are brand new in the box I haven’t even laced them up yet.

    I’ll post in the running thread also.
