They probably get a nice staff discount as well.

^Yup.. A bit less than Holt. I know a couple people working at Holt Renfrew, and making an average $30-$40 an hour.
I considered it.. but I just can't live my life depending on commission. And who knows if they're going to be here in 10, 15 years.

Great opportunity to buy the True Blues if you missed the released in 2009. Also, the black cements 3's for 2011 is great for the people who didn't get the CDP pack.

Although the CDP black cement 3's have shitty quality. I am thinking if I should buy the upcoming 2011 pair.

HR will be around for a long time,long as they continue to carry good brands that people want,then people with money will continue to shop there.The first time I discovered HR was like 20 years ago,well they are still here today,so I don't think they will be disappearing anytime soon.

I will be picking up the true blues and the black/cement when they get released this year.

As far as I can remember,the AJ3's have always had quality issues,and the problem was just the paint on the foam part of the shoes,even the original AJ3's back in 1987-1988 had the same problem,so nothing has really changed.

^Holt will still be here, but with Nordstrom coming, I don't see them hiring many people.. or any one's comission skyrocketing. I'm not saying it's a bad job, just a little hard to plan financially.

Side note, going to check out El Kartel tonight to see if they have any N&F left

Oh wow, did not know that. The heel portion for my True Blues from 2009 has already started to yellow for mine already.

I haven't seen may people with the True blues from 2001 though. Although the owners of those sneakers claim the quality of the retros were better 10 years ago and beyond.

The white plastic and foam turning yellow was always apparent with the AJ3's(it was never really a big issue),I was told with the new retro 2011 AJ3's the problem has been fixed with better material.

Of course the guys with the retro Jordans from 2001 are going to say that,they need to keep the value high on their investment,those editions are going for anywhere from 600-800 a pair.

It's not really a fashion purchase but I finally got the cleats I wanted via mail! I guess they could look fashionable with their lime green appearance

I watch an interview done by Holt's CEO a few weeks ago and he discussed the impact Nordstrom expanding into Canada might have on their business, he seemed unconcerned about the threat of new competition. Holt is so well established within it's niche market any competition, American or otherwise, would have difficulty cutting into their market share.

^ No, I agree. But if another store is opening with some of the same brands, theoretically there will be some strain one way or another.

Having said that.. if given the choice, I'm sure 9/10 people would still buy the item from Holt just to carry the pink bag. Myself included.
