The word “V-Chip” was a household term as 1996 rolled into ’97 here in the United States, as the Federal Communications Commission rolled out its Parental Guidelines to aide TV viewers with their content choices. The FCC’s initial ratings has stood the test of time unaltered, but a couple of sneakerheads who were rocking diapers during the rollout have exposed a flaw in the system. There’s no code to let you know that you’re about to see some serious heat on the screen (the ‘S’ sub-rating does NOT stand for ‘sneakerhead’), nor apparently is the government’s judicial arm prepared to understand the intricacies of our subculture.
“I have no understanding of this business at all,” admitted New York’s Honorable Judy Sheindlin, the typically mouthy presider, who on a Friday episode determined that a single wear of an un-DS’d ‘Zen Grey’ Nike Air Yeezy was worth $300 plus the gas it takes to get from VA to NJ and back again. The saga continues with a thread nearing 200 pages on the KTT forums (its printed first page a ‘key’ piece of evidence) and video uploaded to WSHH and YouTube; take the ongoing embarrassment as a suggestion to handle your business the right way. You can see the video in full with all the details after the jump below, then let us know if justice was served and if you’ve ever had a scenario that made you mad enough to call up Judge Wopner.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOCYZWNHWY8

I actually saw that shit and I was rollin, that spanish kid got his yeezys back and tried to get the white boy to also pay him 800$ because he creased the yeezys that were already worn by the spanish kid to begin with, ridiculous!!!
If only Nike/Jordan Brand would increase their shoe supply (which they won't) and not have to deal with these f*****' resellers. Shoes should be like video games in which they'll sit on shelves after weeks, months or years after their original release. But nope, never gonna happen.
I just watch this, must say funniest shit known to man, when someone discovers what's currently happening with shoes the judge solved this with so much demand, it's crazy!! But she was wrong for making him sale his shoes for $300, if he could have easily got more for em. Damn those shoes are ugly, the DB 3s were nice though, lol
wait anyone notice the kid with yeezy got one some cheap adidas on! lmaooo where they do that at. got money for the yeezy but got on some cheap adidas?
it's funny too, that PAWN STARS just had a episode too where a guy was trying to sell the store a pair of NIKE AIR MAGS and the guy was trying to get like if i can remember 10k for them, chumlee was only giving the guy 1500.00 for them and the guy got pissed and took the shoes of the table. just showing that reselling sneakers is a risky business. this white kid held them yeezy to see if he can get a buyer to purchase them for 1500+ dollars. showing that no one in their right mind will drop money on sneaks just cause their limited. just like that guy who SN posted the other day who is selling the galaxy foams and paranormans for 4200.00/2100.00 dollar shoe. just cause they are limited doesnt mean you should get 2-3 times the value of the shoe!
Hahaha the fact that their moms was there was hilarious. This just shows why kids shouldn't be apart of the sneaker community. nuff said.
That white boy obviously didn't care about the shoes. He wasn't going to wear them either. "I wear my shoes a few time then sell them" yeah right. You just buy and sell. Buy and sell.
Both of them should just get a job and stop reselling for rape prices.
this just shows you that reselling sneakers for 2-3times it worth is stupid, that if a person takes this to court they will just get what the actual shoe is worth. just because a shoe is limited does not mean it will worth the same to the next person. the kid who had the yeezy wanted over 1500 for them but the judge just gave him 300 for his trouble. so with that said if anyone takes this court don't expect to get the sneaker head price but get what they are actually worth, what you paid for it
@JosephMoreira Too F'in Funny!
i agree with you only, if they were sitting on shelves then the exclusivity of them is gone it it ruins the point of having that shoe in your collection. Whats so special about them that you have to collect it when it's siiting on shelves at
@newsouth912 LMFAO! XD
@dopeman978 I saw that one episode too bro! About the guy trying to sell Nike Air Mags on Pawn Stars. It was f*****' hilarious! Man, people need to get a real f*****' JOB!
why should there be an age limit on gettin fresh tho just cause 2 spoiled retards did sum dumb shit dont mean all kids dont deserve to participate in buyin sumthin they like
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite IKR? SMFH! -_______-
@fly li ok ok ok, I feel you bro. but with age come maturity and the common since. so I'm not saying that every single person under that age of 20 are dumb and ignorant like those 2 but the vast percentage is. So for those who are not mature enough to handle money and sneakers, shouldn't be apart of the sneaker community.
