    Maybe someone can explain to me the allure of StockX NFTs on sneakers. You have an NFT of a sneaker. This NFT can be sold whenever. The owner of the NFT can use it to obtain the actual sneaker whenever they want and it saves on shipping time. The NFTs are selling for way more than the actual sneakers. What is the advantage of having the NFT?

    I'm baffled by it too. It makes no sense. Its like paying 5k for a note backed by 1k of gold. Why? Someone paid $5k for an nft backed by a $700 AMM AJ3.

    I've read all I can on it and I just don't see how it's any different for the user than using Goats storage option. You buy, hold in a locker, then sell when you want to. Don't get me wrong, it's convenient if you want to invest in a shoe. By for $400, let them hold it for a year, then sell for $1000. Much easier than having to store the shoe at your house and pay shipping and authentication twice. Just holding it in your wallet/locker is way easier. But that doesn't make it worth 10x what the shoe is worth.

    Much like all the other NFT stuff, i understand none of it. And from what ive seen the ones on StockX make even less sense to me than the others. They cost way more than if you just bought the actual physical item.

    There’s a company that made nft of hypercars they’re never going to actually make and sold them for hypercar money. NFTs are just a new creative way to help idiots part with their money

    It’s so StockX can make more money. It’s a cash grab while NFTs are a topic of conversation.

    That’s about it.

    It’s going to happen and he’s going to release some some Jordan’s. Same as Virgil.

    He got a deal linking his gap line of clothing with Balenciaga. It’s absolutely possible that he works with the Jordan line on some sneakers and clothes.

    Going off his previous Nike models I’d say he’d do a Jordan 5 or a 3.

    Think so? I would think his Adidas contract wouldn't allow that? Sounds more like he's just trying to get more money from Adidas imo.

    Agree with this.


    Due to the fact that West’s loyalty resides within the adidas family, it’s more than likely that this is simply one of his oft-seen Internet trolls. DJ Khaled — one of Jordan Brand’s coveted VIPs — has been spotted in the studio cooking up new music with Ye, and there’s definitely a possibility that the topics of sneakers and collaborative product is voiced in their conversations. However, unless West unexpectedly severs his ties with the Three Stripes anytime soon, the idea of having his name attached to anything Jordan Brand related seems like a lost cause.

    I thought he had something in his Adidas deal that allowed him some freedom to do with other brands if he wanted to.

    I'd be shocked if it allowed for him to do anything with Nike/Jordan. Like that's the first one not allowed.

    Lol na, at least not the og build. The Zoom CMFT is updated and more comfortable but most of the colorways are butt. Probably better off just getting some Epic Reacts or Ultraboosts.

    All retro Jordan’s feel like bricks on feet, but the 1’s are the worst of the bunch for me.

    Thanks for the helpful answers. My sister is a physical therapist and she asked about them. Turns out she didn't want them for work anyways so I guess it didn't matter. I've never owned a pair because I thought they always looked uncomfortable.

    The Zoom CMFT are incredible. I wear mine more often than any other AJ1.

    Yeah, I am sure some are better than others relatively speaking, but for me, shoes are either comfortable enough to wear to work all day or they aren’t. The days of wearing any J to the office are few and far between over here.

    Yea depends on what you do. I wear aj3 more often that not... but I work from home and sit at a desk all day so comfort isn't a big deal.

    Why not? I wear WC AJ3 or og red am1 about 90% of the time at home. I still get up and dressed (shorts and a tshirt) every day. I can't just sit around in pj's and crocs everyday.

    Wearing your shoes in your house all day is weird but I find weirder things people do on TMB all the time. Honestly, finding out dblplay1212 wears his sneakers at his house is the least surprising thing I’ve come across today.
