If you use the word hypebeast, SHUT YOUR MOUTH. There are only wannabes, resellers, and actual sneaker lovers. Fools think theres an actual definition of a hypebeast and sneakerhead in the dictionary. These words are used way too much by people that have completely different meanings for them. I'll break it down: the wannabes got in line so they could copy rappers cuz they have no style of their own and can't think for themselves. They don't ruin the game, but they make it cheesey and lessen the style/shine the shoes have when they wear em. Resellers are in it for profit. THEY RUIN THE GAME THROUGH GREED. Now an actual sneaker lover can resell and trade if they got a pair to keep and actually care for the shoe. But if you just got in line to buy and resell, and went all over town buying whatever you can just to make a profit??? You are a RESELLER. You buy what you don't want or need and steal that opportunity from someone who actually wants them. YOU ARE RUINING THE GAME. YOU ARE THE SCUM OF THE EARTH. Hypebeast???? I think a lot of people think thats some new kid in the sneaker game who really wants a pair of shoes and will camp or do whatever they need to get em. To me that just sounds like a young cat, rookie though they may be, who really wants some shoes. To me theres no difference between them and an OG sneaker lover except age and maybe some knowledge. But any kid can go online and read all about the shoe if they want. They can even read what some OG wrote about em on his blog or talked about on youtube, and then they'll have just as much knowledge. So really the difference is the age. EVERYONE except resellers really wants em so WE'RE ALL HYPEBEASTS. Personally I grew up and followed Jordan after the first retirement. The 12s released when I was young and I had the OG flu games, but for the most part it was Penny's time, so i mostly had his shoes with a tim duncan posite type of shoe( can't think of the name right now) thrown in there. When I stopped playin ball in school I forgot about dope bball shoes and wore skate shoes. Now I've come back strong and am in rebuild mode. I AM NOT A WANNABE, but yea my collection is 2011 forward. So what??? Why would I spend 500+ on anything prior to 2011 that will just fall apart when I wear em once??? Stop the hate sneakerlovers, we all want the same thing: retros with good quality, that don't alter the original shoe's concept/look for a more reasonable price. ITS THE RESELLERS WE HAVE TO SHUT DOWN.
