HOLY SHIT! I thought they'd be going for $6-800 max. There are listings with bids on them at $2-3,000!!! LOL. Imagine if you see someone wearing these, and you know they paid over $3000 dollars for them. What a lame Hypebeast! The Elite one is ok, if it were a GR like the black and white elites, i might of grabbed a pair. Maybe its the box and felt lined pocket accessories? These kids do tend to like a "special" box! HAHA. But thats the funniest thing so typical of todays "sneakerhead"... everyone will agree there is nothing special about the cw, just average, the 9 would have gone to outlets and the Elite would have sold similar to the Taxis, just a bit better than the Home and Away, less than the hyped Miami Vice cw... but throw in a theme/gimmick of "World Champion" MVP "pack" ... and make them extremely limited in numbers... and suddenly these kids are gonna pay ANYTHING, sell there grandmas, just to have that unobtainable cool thing that they think everyones gonna be envious of, and is gonna me jealous and show them props when they go stunting. Dunno, to me being a sneakerhead is rocking some REAL sneakers, a great thought out design, quality materials, value for money, like the Flyknit, or a staple colour like an AM90 Infrared. And making the sneaker look good, not relying on the other way around. Stuff like this is just fluff, being played by mass marketing and corporate conglomerates. I would just feel stupid if i paid(wasted) all that money just for a status symbol. Especialy when people kill and die for that kind of money. So many people starving to death in the world, and your buying some shoes. With as much money that would save there lives and feed them for 10 years. WOW.
