I really want to buy a pair of greats royale blanco but what is up with only shipping within us/china? No retailers here in japan seem to carry them..

For people who aren't aware, Complex have started the 2nd season of their great Sole Origins show. They focus on a different location every episode and go through the sneaker culture and history there. Really good stuff.

Copped the 700 Waverunners at $80 over retail. I didn't want to go through yet another Yeezy day trying to cop in a couple weeks.
Man, I should have done this instead of taking my chances on the restock and striking out.

Just paid $110 over retail. Oh well, really wanted a pair and they’re only gonna go up from here.

Now bring on the Bone White 500s!

Lmao. I might be done with Yeezy restocks. The stress is too much.

Honestly depending on the colorway resale is not that much over retail that it's too crazy to get.

Compared to the 700s which has crazy resale.
 
Slept through the restock for the Wave Runners anyways so just bought my pair off GOAT.

At least I finally have them. I'll probably pick up the V1 Inertias one of these days too...

That said, the markup for my size is stupid lol 🤣

Really hoping this is the start of StockX's slow demise.. Hoping something suitable pops up for the EU Market soon. Having such a high market share/near monopoly is not good for the industry and scene. Fuck stockx. Not sure if you've seen the new luxury tax theyve added for shoes over £600 or so. Basically makes no sense to sell on stockx for high price items. If you're selling a Travis Scott 1 for £1800 they're taking around £600. Yes some of it us customs etc but still a huge amount.

Add in the data leak, which they tried to hide and the fakes which get through and also general fuckery which can be seen through examples like StockXBusta on Instagram.

Anyone know how the tailwind 79s fit? Are they TTS? The price on the stranger things "burnable" ones on stockx ain't bad, considering getting them.

Got a confession, been trash talking the joyride cos of the looks and them seemingly being puma jamming knockoffs. Put them on feet and they feel as good as brand new ultraboost fresh ootb. Got the OG white blue CW

Anyone go for the Jordan 1 Obsidian today? Got lucky on Footlocker in my size, but it was a struggle to get through anywhere it seems.

Where are you located? I'm in Germany and I've been trying for the last 8 hours to get a pair lol. Didn't have any luck on raffles and SNEAKRS. Footlocker EU has been acting up the whole day, error code after waiting line after error code. The site finally works pretty stable now, but the sizes just won't show up. There's an endlessly running circle where the size overview would normally be. I have this on any item on the website though, not just on the AJ1 Obsidian, so I guess the website is still fucked. I'm absolutely tired of trying all day, but as long as there is a chance, I will keep going. Really digging the Obsidians, been looking forward to them for weeks.

Won the raffle at my local Shiekh and just picked up my pair. One kid couldn't get his pair because the raffle was under his mom's name. Looked like half the people on the list haven't picked up their pairs yet and they have until 1 pm to get them. There were 2 people outside waiting in line so it might be a good idea to call or check if anyone wants a pair.

I have these and love them. Some of my favorite sneakers. How you gonna lace em up? And are you gonna remove any paint? Or leave it as is? (I've left mine as is.)
not going to remove the paint. I think I might lace it up right now with the light pink and once the paint starts to come off I'll probably use the black laces.
