Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Galaxy’ Campouts Coverage
After December 2011′s mayhem caused by the Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’ release, the world’s most renowned news outlets have become intrigued by sneakers once again; CNN recently visited the Air Jordan IV ‘White/Cement’ campout to discuss the looming release of the Galaxy Foams, gaining insight from sneakerheads who were camped out in anticipation of tomorrow’s release. Other campouts have formed around the nation as early as this past Saturday, so these two videos below give you a unique insight behind the mind of the sneaker ‘camper’. Is it worth weathering the outdoor concrete jungle for a week to get a pair of shoes? Check out the videos after the jump and let us know what you think of the current Galaxy Foam mania.
Someone should interview who are the people spend $3000 on these galaxy foam. Don't you guys find it more interesting? Who is more dumb?
Idk I ain't going to lie if I had these I would sell them too $2000 fuck and then buy xi breds xi space jams and with the other 800 or 900 buy xii playoffs xi lows vi Olympic vii raptors iv red whites and that's still like $ 820 and still have $80 left over and then spend the money I would have spend on these year releases and still copp from flight club and other places I don't want to put on front street,, so yeah I would sell these and copp jays all day
I don't know why people camp in front of a store for days. They probably smell worse than a garbage dump after not taking a shower for all those days. I'm surprised they would even let them into the store.
Glad to see the majority of you aren't lost in the hype; this is wut happens when you hop on da wagon folks. I will never be that pressed for a shoe. But don't blame cats like dude in the picture, if it wasn't this much hype for this shoe then you wouldn't have this problem at all. That's why I refuse to pay retail price for Nikes when you don't have to.
"releasing a limited amount and create a buzz around it". Yup Nike is messing with us all the way up .
I dont get how grown azz men can spend a full week out in front of a store for some kicks. It takes me 2 days to make what the re-sell value will be for these foams. Spend more time getting your money up then falling victim to HYPEBEAST sh*t!!!
This is ridiculous, to have to camp out 4 days before the release. These sneakers are only the talk because they are limited.
i can honestly say i dont know of ANYONE thats planning on keeping these. everyone wants to resell them except the people thats paying almost 2 grand for them (even half of them gonna be stupid and pay like 1800 then try to resell them for 2000).honestly people..... listen to me closely people RESELLERS WILL GO AWAY IF YOU ALL STOP BUYING THESE SHOES FOR THESE RIDICULOUS ASS PRICES!!! its that easy, so what if you miss a release the high of having that release only last for about 48 hours. if you miss it the first go around be patient, real heads know the key to this game is patients and networking in the community. these companies doing this shit on purpose with all these limited releases because a sneaker company or brand dont want their shit to go to an outlet they lose max profit. so they say these shits are limited and people go crazy over them shits for no reason (look at the old royal jordan 10's this year...). think about it people.
not even dat, even if u wantd big bangs dave whites w.e.. u hav to camp strtn now n u stll might not get it cuz retards @ da mall dnt respect lines. yall kno who u r. ignorant. nike gona continue dis sadly 4 evr n evr cuz face it. society is stupid.excludn bout %10
Nike is straight up wrong for that..my consolation shoe sold out in 30 secs (air flight one orlando) so my guess is that the game is in a secondary market with nike being the wholeseller. They put up a front as it's availiable to the general public then left hand dap the people who been with nike for years. Smfh but what can you expect from a company that invest in thousands of shoes that collect dust and has a inventory of 5% of which consumers want to buy being the legacy line (jordan retro) and retro signature lines ie pennys and barkleys
You do not see any white people camping out for nike shoes. No, they camp out to drink beer, hunt, and fish, the true meaning of camping. Get a life people. They are just shoes! I bet these people would not camp out to pay their bills.
This shit really started when the Pigeons Dropped, cooled down, then when them Jordan packs came out.........SHIT WENT DOWNHILL, lol i aint even thinkin about the Columbias, bump em, i paid 360 for my concords and them shits aint worth it. I was so mad, i sold my 01 joints just to make up the bread, and aint even come close
I hear you. It is just a pair of shoes! I would rather go to red lobster, get a steak, lobster tail, a couple of tall beers, then come home and make love with my date. All you people have fun camping out. I will be at home drinking beer, watching the knicks and heat tonight. Can go to the bathroom as I wish, and can eat and drink without worrying about getting out of line.
im shakin my damn head at this, im not gonna dis the dude for doin this cause it seems that he dont know. but his father outta be ashamed, its not like this kid gonna say no and not do it, he dont seem the kind of person to put up any kind of resistance. so this makes no sense man at all, once again im not gonna diss this kid cause he dont know no better it seems like. im pinnin this on his father. this is sad man.
Slaves to retail...........I refuse to give that much time to one shoe....If I can't get them the day they come out then I just won't have them....I love kicks just as much as the next sneakerhead but Im not an idiot .
I've been collecting shoes since 2006, and I think it's time to retire. If this is where the game is headed (2000 dollar shoes + fools camping out for a week), then I'm done. Two years ago I could walk into a shop a few days after the release date and cop what I wanted. Now if I don't get up before 8 am on release day I'm not getting crap. Who wants to do that? Who really needs to get up that fuckin early for shoes? The only people who are really perpetuating the camping thing are resellers. People who want the shoe for themselves will line up a few hours before. But that's about it. That's all it should be. People are just gonna camp, flip shoes they won't want, and fuck over the people who really wanted the shoe in the first place. That's where the game is headed. The websites are gonna crash every time some hyped shoe drops now, so it won't even be worth it to try. Don't support resellers. Don't buy their shit. Make sure they get stuck with the shoes they didn't really want in the first place, because fuck them. They'll give up when they realize nobody wants their products. People should stop supporting Nike too. They perpetuate this shit, and make it seem cool. But it isn't cool to camp for shoes, and it never was. Fuck the sneaker game. I'm done.
Nike is neglecting their Working 9-5 consumers and encouraging the poor unemployed and class ditchers with the way they released this shoe. Interesting they would do this to those with consistent income yet encourage those that can't afford to be continuous shoppers. I have the oddest feeling the resale price will start $1,000-$2,000 and soon drop down to realistic prices of $350-$500. Anybody planning on buying on the resale market, hold out those shoes aren't going anywhere fast.
wow! this is insane im not camping for weeks so i cant take shower or shit at my crib and waste my vacation days at work. fuk that!!!!
I dont know if this was said before, but stupid fags that know nothing about shoes have been over all these hyped releases since Concords dropped. It's getting on my nerves now.
Quit b*tchin about re-sellers. Anyone can cop and sell if they want to. This is America. You girls are always worried about what the next man does.
I don't see the hype about foams those shoes are ugly as fuck to me. I don't see how people can drop over $200 on such ugly kicks and I know people are gonna give me a shitload of thumbs down but I don't care . Foams and XI's are a tool for resellers to make profit off of and I be damned if im going on a ramen noodle diet to save money to buy some ugly ass kicks that I don't even like. SMH @ hypebeast and high school fit ins and followers.
Exactly, during the cements release i was 15th person on lines outside the mall. once the front door open. people behind me over lapped the line. And during waiting front of Foot locker i was the 42th person.
You hate shoe re-sellers, but they are still out there copping and RE-SELLING on your bitch ass. lmao! How has bitching on the internet helping your cause. lol!
I am happily married to the same woman for over 15 years. Know what you are talking about before you judge someone. You need your mother to wash out your mouth with soap.
Okay. AND?! Good for you. They chose to camp, you chose to type that you are going to red lobster and make love to a date who is probably a guy. Wow! Congrats, sir! You are better than some campers. Would you like a cookie? We have sugar and chocolate chip available.
COULD NOT HAVE SAID IT BETTER! I started getting in shoes in 2006 as well, and my mom bought me my Fire Red 3s which were my first Jordans ever! Still have them, we went to which the Foot Locker which is now HOH of Orlando, in the AFTERNOON and got a 10.5 for me. 2009 came around, I got Space Jams at 10:30 in the morning at Finishline at FL Mall, I was gonna wait and go to my store I like going to at FL Mall for the Concords but bought online and was lucky to do so. If I didn't, I'd either 1) be without the Concords period, or 2) be dumb at pay about $400 cash for a pair on eBay. I'll be honest - yeah we all want money, who doesn't? Yet some people don't GET that camping, sleeping on kicks, taking a week off from a JOB (which almost millions are currently unemployed) is ridiculous. I don't understand why y'all can't just go college, GET FINANCIAL AID and get an education and make $50 an hour. Not $7, sleeping on some Foams and Jays - because when you got money, you can buy ANYTHING. I have about 15 pairs of only Jordans because that's what I buy, and that's what I wear. I personally have been debating with the person I am replying to about quitting the game because of this. It's driving me nuts knowing the shoes I LOVE, and LIKE I can't buy because there are limited quantities and so much hype. Let's just get ready for 2000 Olympics to release this summer, 6/7 pack, Bred 4s, and of course the mayhem of the 11s TWO DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS....its just great..gotta love this company. Thank you for writing your great opinion to the man above me, hopefully us REAL sneaker heads who buy our shoes to WEAR and KEEP FOR YEARS will appreciate this. Thank you.
Not re-selling to me buddy, I spend my money on black hawk, smith and wesson, and winchester. If there is any doomsday events, those shoes will really help you survive. In my case, I will have the means to hunt and survive in the wilderness.
Man, you're a fool. You should just stop talking now. You're hating, and you have no good reason. You're a child.
You girls are on here bitching and crying about re-sellers and campers AND I'M HATING? LMFAO! Bitch, please!
