Don’t you work in the markets??  And you’re hating the player?  C’mon, man.   

I work in tech/media. It’s frustrating when you’re as prepared as I was today and get iced out.

I feel you.  I get so frustrated with concert tickets.  Same BS.

Pissed I didn't get the OW AJ1s when they dropped even though I had notifications turned on and everything.

SNKRs sucks. I know multiple people that are like in the 0-for-20 to 30 range on that app.

Went a little overboard the past couple weeks. Bought the Jordan 6 Tinkers that were released in October (Finishline has them on sale for $150), Shox R4 triple black, and yesterday got 3 pairs of the infrared 6’s. 

I think I’m done buying sneakers for a while. 

Let me know how the shox are. I never got the OGs back in the day. Heard they were murder on the knees.

I haven’t tried on my new ones yet, but the R4’s are probably my favorite sneaker of all time. I’ve probably owned 8-10 pairs in various colors over the years. Extremely comfortable.

It is absolutely horrible. SNKRs pass is even worse. Bots kill it, but I have had some limited success. I find that if I interact on the nike+ app and like certain products or click around that I end up winning a draw or standard pair here and there. They definitely reward loyalty too. The more I buy the more frequent the wins come.

Have to say that most of my success is on international sites, small boutique shops across the US, random restocks, or the footsite app raffles. The bots are too difficult to combat to have success with Nike products through their app on release.

Actually got the Couture 1s bia SNKRS. But yeah, never won a draw on SNKRS for anything really hyped.

Bruhhhh you got those? Jealous af tbh lol. App gave me an L on those yesterday. They not absurd on resell though so I'm still considering. But a few Jordan 4's coming out over the next few weeks so I'm weighing my options.

People who won those Doernbecher's yesterday on the raffle are making bank today.

Yeah, looking forward to getting them in-hand. They're different but I like them.

Those DB6s are a nice come up. Looks like they're going for $1,000 on StockX... can't imagine paying that much for a pair of sneakers. I'm a retail or less kind of guy.

Which 4s are you going after?

The black/red colorway. Just saw on my Twitter feed they drop May 11th. I know, I know, same colorway as the Infrareds most of us just picked up. I can't help it. Just such a classic look that pops.

Big weekend. The Bred 4's in their original '89 version drop Saturday. I'm thinking should be an easy cop, if the overabundance of the recent 5's and 6's are any indication. Will probably be plenty to go around.

The 4s should be an easy cop. I already got my Footaction reservation notification. Will probably go ahead and try to double up on SNKRS.

Fairly easy cop on the 4's. Good s###. Now got my 4, 5, and 6 Breds all lined up. Apart from the 1's (duh), the 4, 5, 6 are the only J's I'm really crazy about. Although I'll be shooting for the Bred 11's at the end of the year.

Also recently picked up the Jordan 3 Tinkers on sale, so excited for those too. Saw an online review of them with the red swoosh in place and it takes the shoe to another level.

Do you guys get tired of all these Jordan re-releases?  I don't know, it was cool a few years ago but there are only so many color ways before it just gets repetitive.   Decided on these instead.  Big fan:  https://www.barneys.com/product/christian-louboutin-men-27s-rankick-flat-leather-sneakers-505602993.html

Jordan releases? Idk, not really. Breds never go out of style. Other colorways...possibly. But there only a handful I would bother buying anyway. The sneaker game on the whole is just too varied at this point to get bored with. Those are nice kicks. Clean, simple. I mean I don't like the price point lol but what else would I expect with designer...

About to drop a couple bills on some Container Store drop front boxes. My closet is out of control.

I like the variety of colorways. I obviously have some pairs that get worn more than others but enjoy the collecting and wearing different ones.

I hear that.  I'll never get bored with sneakers but the Jordan thing just seems overdone.  I'm more talking all the reseller hype and overcharging for bs.  Go ahead, make all the colors you want but after a while it's just over saturation of the market.  The novelty wears off for me.  The last ones I've seen that were mildly interesting were the Levis 4's and I'm more of a 1 and 3 guy.

Mine are too, but sometimes it's a PITA to find a specific shoe unless the box is unique, plus I'm not always good about putting them back in the box after wearing so my closet's a disaster.

The Travis Scott AJ1 release was a doo doo show. 30 minutes of errors, mobile verifications, invalid passwords, and more errors.

Some people I know got in like 20 minutes after the drop and managed to hit via SNKRS app. Had the same errors as I was getting and then *BAM*, GOT EM. It was frustrating to say the least.

J Crew released a green colorway of the Killshots if anyone's looking for a casual summer shoe.

Don't pay resale bruh! Have a strong feeling you'll be seeing fairly frequent restocks over the next few weeks. Same thing happened with the 6's a few months ago. They just kept restocking. Just keep an eye out.

Oh I'm in no rush....  I'm not like I was in college.   I get no satisfaction of having them "first" lol   :)

:goodposting:

I use the app J23 that alerts to restocks. There's also a few twitter accounts that you can follow for alerts.

You cop?

I dont know what that means, but if that’s asking if I got any, unfortunately not. I was in line then it said it was a payment error, which is BS since everything was correct and I could buy something right after.

Dang, those would be sick out on the course. But yeah, unfortunately that's a common occurrence for hot sneaker (or golf in this case) releases. Just kind of a thing people have come to accept as bots flood these sites to buy them in minutes, if not seconds. No company really cares to fix cause at the end of the day, they're getting their money anyways.

Yep, was asking if you got them.

"Payment error" is a pretty common occurrence when servers are getting slammed. It happens.

I was going for the Trophy Room 5s today but missed out. Did manage to snag a pair of the Seoul AM97s so not all bad.
