Nike’s new “Twitter RSVP” system came into play not long after the events of the Galaxy Foamposite release. Though not official, it could be said that this new release procedure was to better prepare for high-profile releases like the Air Yeezy 2, and with the release of this much-anticipated sequel officially hitting stores this Saturday, many have been wondering just how Nike will handle its in-store release. First off, 21 Mercer is just one of two stores that will release both the Black/Solar Red and the Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum colorway. Secondly, the only way to get one of the Air Yeezy 2s is through the aforementioned Twitter RSVP, which 21 Mercer will open up on Thursday, June 7th at an undisclosed time. If Yeezy taught you anything, it’s to keep your eyes glued to 21 Mercer’s Twitter account, and once you’ve received your confirmation, you will be able to purchase your Air Yeezy 2 this Saturday on June 9th.
Make sure you are following the store Twitter account in order to send a DM. Note: Nike does not need to follow you because its Twitter accounts are verified
retailers becoming richer saving their stock not for in store selling but for ebay!! called a retailer that i thought he would have them available- he told me that they wont bring them at all. 5 minutes later called the central nike offices in my country, i was informed that only one retailer will have them available, the one that i called and told me he wont have them....................called nike again to complain about it....nothing i can do...called global nike office...nothing i can do!FU NIKE, FU mofo retailers.
be careful what you wish for bacuse it might come true. look what happened now nike, people are literally KILLING each other for your shoes now. This shit i rediculous just to get a damn pair of shoes.
Lol. This happens cause of idiots in society that don't know how to act. If it were like 10 years ago when u can just go the day off with no camp outs or fights then this wouldn't have to happen. Blame people that don't know how to act not Nike. They trying to make things run smooth. It gives everyone a chance without hypebeast and resellers having to buy the inventory. Btw I'm sure the 21 mercer fairy tales or going to begin any mintue now lol. Some y'all are so gullible smh
Im bout to say f***the shoe game u can't even go to the store to buy a pair of kicks without standing in line I rather save my hard earned money n spend it on guns not to sound evil but hey if u don't get them u got to deal with resellers n if I remember correctly it was never a such thing as a reseller in the late 80's or early to mid 90's
Hypebeasts Unite! ... As a REAL sneakerhead i will laugh at you when i see you parading around in these yeezy gay fish shoes like some lame ass hypebeast reseller kid. At least when i see you wearing these, ill know you either a Hypebeast or a Reseller and i can walk the other way so as not to be seen with your lame ass. Enjoy yo "kicks". lol.
I thought these would need the RSVP thing on the @NikeNYC twitter but apparently its on @21mercer. However you can't direct message 21mercer only NikeNYC. I don't understand how this is going to work...
guess they don't care bout the consumers that just wanna buy sum nice kicks..fuck twitter & da rest of the social media bs i jus wanna spend my hard earned money on sum nice kicks!!! Jordan had a run 4 years and still sellout kicks now u gotta campout or pay ridiculous prices 4 sum hot kicks..only way 2 beat it is if u got a hook up shit aint rite smh
Weren't the originals for charity? Every retailer should just have a silent auction for each size, all addtional proceeds ABOVE retail go to a local charity, like the Foundation For People Murdered Over Shoes Fund
This RSVP is BS.... They use Dm's so no one else can see who send the #tag first. If they let us tweet the # at least there would be proof of who sent the (#tag, name, size) first...but they do not allow that! All the people do who are in charge of the twitter account is hook up their friends. this is a lost cause.
I complete 1000% percent agree. These big retailers all the way to small mom and pop stores are either selling them early for crazy amounts or posting a portion of their inventory on eBay. Its complete bul. I have only known of a couple of stores around where I leave to either loose their Nike account or get suspended from their Nike account. If this continues to happen what the point of setting prices for shoes if consumers will have to end up paying three times their worth just to acquire them. I will repeat and continue to stress this. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES DOES NIKE CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS. UNTIL CONSUMERS CAN STAND UP AND NOT BE LIKE SHEEP AND NOT STAND FOR THIS TYPE OF TREATMENT ANYMORE AND UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH WE MEAN TO NIKE WE WILL CONTINUE TO GET TREATED LIKE MINDLESS SHEEP. NO BODY HAS BALLS OR SCRUPLES ANYMORE.
"21 Mercer is just one of two stores that will release both the Black/Solar Red and the Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum colorway"
This means that they are the only one of two stores that will get BOTH colorways. Other stores are selling one or the other, which doesnt make sense to me
if the person is walking around and wearing them, then how is he a "reseller"?? and wat defines u as a "REAL" sneakerhead, u don't make any sense. u jus sound like an idiot who is just mad that he won't get a pair
your such a goof...... listen even if u know people there or came to the front of a line your more likely to get shut down because ive seen it happen at 21 mercer a couple times where someone who thinks they big shot talks to the person who works in there the manager will just shut you down.
Just curious, who the hell picks the winning RSVP. Bc I wouldn't be surprised if they pick their friends n family members first. It's all about honesty but we all know is a different sneaker world these days. Whose to say you were first but they see there friends tweet after you. I would love to hear there answer on winning RSVP tweets
