This is what EXACTLY what happens when you fall for the hype.
First: lose your hard-earned savings for a piece of sneakers you don't really intend to wear.
Second: Feel a temporary gratification of copping something you perceived "limited".
Third: The 'passe' feeling after months or years of possession, you start disliking 'em.
Lastly: Like this seller, he is now desperate to get rid all of them in the hopes of breaking even.
Moral lesson of the story:
DON'T FALL FOR THE HYPE FOR SOMETHING THAT IS A WANT. SAVE YOUR HARD-EARNED MONEY TO SOMETHING THAT IS A NEED!
