May 12th will be one of the biggest release days of the year as the Air Jordan IV ‘Cavs’, Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘Varsity Maize’, Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Aunt Pearl’, and four of the more enticing Jordan CP3.V colorways are set for a release. However, Nikestore has just confirmed that it will not carry any of the aforementioned products, leaving customers to vie for these high-profile kicks either in-store or at other online retailers and possibly causing camp-outs in the other spots that don’t apply to Nike’s recently-implemented Twitter RSVP system. However, this could be one way to divert its online customers to its twenty-four Nike locations and familiarize its online customers with the Twitter RSVP, but this certainly leaves those who had depended on Nikestore in a bind. As we revisit all of the recent changes in policy/procedure to Nikestore’s releases such as the Twitter RSVP and the change to the 8 AM release, what goes through your mind as something as simple of a task like purchasing a pair of sneakers becomes a task clearly more cumbersome than it was before?
