Last week, Complex hit us with an unofficial ‘Ten Commandments’ that sneakerheads must follow. One such rule was to not pay retail prices for kicks, which, quite honestly, has been a well-practiced guideline for decades. Complex is delving a bit deeper into the world of bargain hunting because they just came up with another list of how to get your kick game up while keeping your coin purse as fat as possible. We all have been hitting Nike Factory Stores for quite a while (heads up: Obsidian XII, White/Red IV, and Olympic VII are popping up), but need some more advice? One of the more obvious suggestions: become an employee at one of your most frequent shopping spots (like Foot Locker or a Nike location). One of the more trendier options: buy up a storage unit (thanks to those reality TV shows, who knows what you’ll stumble upon). What are some of your bargain-hunting methods? Be kind and share, because we could all use an extra dollar or two, and hit up Complex for their list.

You could honestly build up your easily, know building em with shoes you like could be hard, the best and easiest way to do that is get a Job with shoes!! You can cop the releases you like and just trade the ones you dont like, and the best part is, you get discounts, nuff said. As for eBay, good luck only few ppl are willing to give others good deals rather than ripping them off. These tips would be useful maybe 6-9 years ago before everyones baby and mothers got the hype virus

This list is wack. Generally if its a release that doesn't bring the hypebeast out, you can get the shoe on sale. I just got Nomo's & Griffey Total Max 99 for less than $135 together.

Please, none of those tips work, believe me. The game is so different now than it was 10, 12 years ago when Eastbay would have Jordans for 50 bucks, no bs. I still have all my old shoe catalogs dating back to 1997. And Ebay ain't sweet either. I know because I buy and sell.
