yeezy 350s are being mass produced enough now that I think if you're within an hour of release, should be fine. For instance, the spanish sites nigramercato and mini shop madrid always seem to have yeeys in all sizes for a day or 2 after release now
Ok but what sites should I be checking out ? How much advance notice will we get?

So why is NB trying to make the 990v5 a Big Deal? As someone who was alive in the early '90s I will never get how the ugliest aesthetics of that decade are getting updates and marketing campaigns trying to pass these things off as cool.

Gimme a pair of AM97 or 98s any day lolll

Yeah, idk it's got me confused too. It's not even close to the best looking NB show. its lame as hell and putting models in them doesn't change my mind

It’s one of the best selling shoes they make that’s why. It’s their flagship shoe and people buy them. I know dudes from DC to NY that rock them all the time and the V4’s were really good. Also the shoe is huge in Aisa too

StockX has changed the resale game. Picked up some brand new Yeezy 350 V2 Sesame's for pretty much retail. These new triple blacks look great too. Will most likely pick them up at launch.


It's annoying I like the design of these kicks because I'm pretty much completely off put by Ye as a person these days. But I do love the simpler European esque or fashionistic style of sneakers/trainers coming out of all the camps in recent years.

Surprised those Susan's weren't a draw considering how quickly they sold out.

Oh well, onto taking L's on the On Air collection tomorrow!

If a limited/hyped shoe is launching on SNEAKRS and its FCFS, then most are going to be taken by bots. There are iphone/android bots for SNEAKRS and imo its dumb for Nike to release them as FCFS.

Took an L on the Susan’s. Put in a bid on a house Wednesday and haven’t heard anything yet. This is not my week.

Gonna try for the Kaleidoscopes tomorrow and maybe the Tokyo Mazes. All I see is L’s lately though so...🤷🏾‍♀️

Picked up my first pair of Adidas this week. Went looking around NYC for these but nowhere had them in my size. Found someone on GOAT selling them for retail though. The Nite Jogger is an interesting fit. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. They are super roomy since they didn't do half sizes.

In line pending on the Tokyo Maze's and my wife is in line on the Shanghai's. Am I a bad husband for introducing her to this disappointment? Yeah. Probably.

Damn lol i wish i was that lucky

I didnt think they would be this hyped
I was really shocked. A few pairs got out yesterday and I think it drove up the high a lot. I expected the Shanghai's to be rough because of the Y2K aesthetic which, as my wife points out, is incredibly fashionable right now. So I think that's why we're seeing them as the highest price on the second hand market.

I'm a bit salty I didn't get the "Got 'Em!" for my first W on the app but ah well.

Not often that I buy new shoes, but I saw these for 60% off and had to get them.





So this is what it feels like to cop a pair on SNKRS. I never knew it was possible! I can't stop cryiiiiiiinnnngggggg. Also went for Shanghai and Seoul. No dice on those at 10.5.

Also, Donald Glover was giving his shoes out for free at Coachella!

I don't know what Nike were thinking with these. Dropped yesterday and still in stock. Looks like something released just for the laughs.

I have a thing for loud shoes at the moment and got a pair Mizuno X 24 Kilates King Kobras yesterday to add to the Atmos Air Max 2 Lights a couple of weeks ago

Feels nice not to take an L for one. Definitely one of the better mail days in memory. With that said god damn Nike, use more nondescript packaging. They were just sitting on the front porch in plain view since there were a bunch of packages today.

Bout to cop triple white 350s. I’ve actually ordered only from Nike and Adidas.com. For these yeezys, do you guys recommend StockX or Goat? My gf got me my first yeezys on goat.com.
