For some, the following gallery of images will either be a wondrous collection of visual candy or a reminder that life just isn’t fair. Somehow, somewhere, certain individuals have managed to pull the right strings and make the right connections to obtain not one, not two, but several units of some of the hottest sneaker releases in recent memory. From the widely distributed Air Jordan Retros to the most coveted, riot-inducing, and game-changing releases like the Air Yeezy 2 and the Galaxy Foams, this sneaker stockpile showcase shows no limits in terms of what can be obtained. Take a look below (and most of these are 2012 releases, which goes to show just how gargantuan this year’s sneaker release schedule was) and let us know what sort of emotions run out of you when you see these stockpiles in one bunch, mostly coming from one person.
Nothing impressive aside from the yeezy's and galaxy foams. Louboutins are dope, but they aren't rare. They're just very pricey.
his few pairs of christian louboutins shit on all factory made nikes. the most prized nikes are not shit compared to a real luxury shoe. no matter how much people pay for a damn nike!
I bet he's single cause no ones old lady would let that shit slide unless her shoe game was even sicker. My fiancé thinks I'm nuts, shit I'm gonna show her this and I bet I get a bj at least. I'll take that over 10 pairs of the same shoe any day. Does make me a little sick to see shoes I couldn't get my hands on while this cat has them hoarded away. I hope they turn to dust on his ass.
I bet this person works at one of the factories that nike uses overseas, It is impossible to obtain that many pairs of raw heat thru the normal retail avenues,IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!!!
So in essence those that hate the reseller who is selling the yeezy's for $5k shouldn't really be mad at the reseller it's the people that are buying them from the reseller you should be mad at. It's those people that are showing that are showing resellers that there is a market for them. If nobody buys from the resellers then that part of the game would eventually will die down a bit. But who are we to be mad or hate anybody? If a person legally buys a product and resells that product to someone else with a markup how is this criminal? Wake up people and realize that there would be no America as you know it without this way of doing business. This country was built on this principle.
And also like those people that bought those multiple issues of the same comic to resell one day didn't pan out the way most had hoped in the early 1990s and had to either give them away or sell them way below the cover price which was a big loss on their end.
The resellers market is not just limited to sneakers. Another example was the comic book industry in the early 1990s. People were buying dozens of the same issue of certain comics and storing them away hoping to sell them years later for a profit. Many of those people weren't even reading them they just bought multiple copies thinking that these issues were going to be part of their retirement plan. Those that were just reading them for enjoyment were left out in the cold after stores were sold out from people buying those multiple same issue comics. Like I said in a earlier post people have the right to a reseller if they want to. They aren't breaking any laws and if you can make a living doing it I rather prefer people doing that then succumbing to other ways to make money.
What the fuck kinda shit is this? NO person needs 24 pairs of any fucking shoe! Why would someone need that many flyknit trainers, when you know damn well he ain't training in them! SMFH This is why no one can buy shit now a days! And to think there are people like this in every state. It hurts my soul
Pride...wat pride dog after watching my homie die with 7 bullets two his fucking chest over a pair of concords 11 and u wana talk bout pride boyyyyyyy...stay on ur lane
And to think each one of us could have copped a pair but somehow, somewhere, there are people out there taking away our chances to get what we want. I bet when the Bred 11's come out this guy will have like 50 pairs.
U piece of shit soo many people killing for a pair of mjs and here is thise dushbag all them kick..iswear if I find that u live in philly ima fucking burn ur shit crib bitch dont u get it people killing 4 that shit..sell them and buy a nice car asshole...
The local footlocker where I'm from doesn't sell out. It's actually possible for me to go a day or two after the release of a Jordan shoe and have no trouble finding my size. I'm sure I'll be able to get numerous pais of the bred 11s. I'll probably get two pair and leave some for some other people to eventually buy. Just saying that it is possible to buy many pairs. Not all footlockers have crazy lines.
Its no photoshop! Its my man @mr_deadstock he gets down crazy! Just a regular guy. He's big into bespokes also.
And it's one thing to hate on the resellers but this is a democratic society. It's a honest hustle. If you had the connection and means you would be doing the same thing. Lets also keep in mind that if it came out once,it'll come out again. Better luck next time. I missed the first couple of AJ 7 Olympic releases and finally copped a pair this year.
If it is photoshop like most are claiming...why? If it is who cares? If people feel the need to perpatrate the fraud and if they fool people who posts the pictures,let em have their 15 minutes of fake fame. Either way real or not its sad.
@sneakerdude living in NYC and with all the shops and stores we have here if u have been in this before this new craze it's not hard! These guys have built relationships for years and have been spending mad bread when u could walk in days later even weeks and find the new item still sitting on shelves. So buying 20 pairs isn't that difficult is u have the $ to pay for them. If you spend good money with shops when they don't have that so called "heat" they will hold u down when that shoe so called limited shoes comes.
@northphilly886 ummm, you just said you BURN THIS GUYS HOUSE DOWN, and you call him a bitch and that you'd like to fight him over some sneakers, but then talk about your homie getting shot over some sneakers...so, which is it? you believe in violence for sneakers, or no?
@asdfjkln64 Exactly. imean u know wats 2 get shot over one pair and this fool have hundres of the same....just give me 8sec. Wit that bitch in a boxing ring...
@northphilly886 you sound, and act like a little b***h, shut up and stop trying to act tough on the internet..stop crying and move on to the next release, life goes on
wheres your footlocker at homie?
@JoseFriaswhat foot locker are you talking about??
@CedHollywood Yeah being a reseller, NOONE can live off of that money. Plus not a lot of people buy from resellers that ask for $400+. At least people I know
@CedHollywood Lmfao it is a Democracy but fuck that shit... What the fuck are doing making a living as being a reseller??? Really son? And you take Pride in that shit?
@razrsharp dude the point is people like him is fucking the sneaker game. Or wat u have sooo much money 2 pay 2g for air yeezys when is 245 come on now we all in the same boat nigga
@sneakerdudeOne is in northern Cali, almost by Oregon, and another I can go too is in the central valley. Both places are really small cities and people there just aren't that much into shoes. I'm actually surprised if I see more than ten people for a release. There have been numerous times where I've been the only person there.
