Nothing new crazy high retail prices = rape resell prices, $250 each USD or around 290-300 USD from EURO spots. Nobody is gonna take less than 500 USD for each pair, more so the Cigars the more popular pair is around 600. Saw pictures of them when the news first came out and then saw both pairs in person wasn't feeling either one, so I wasn't worried about getting them. The Championship theme is whats driving the hype first J of his first championship even though he wore the black infrareds for the 91 finals against the Lakers.

Never let people cut in line lesson learned.
Next time, I'll do a video of the line. Yeah you're right... just shoes. Had to walk away from that situation. No need to stress myself.

These two guys who usually are at the front where I line up for releases take a checklist of people and what size and the order of the lineup. It avoids people cutting or trying to sneak in.

I saw that happen to one of the lines I was in. I avoid that list. I don't want people ahead of me knowing my size.

Very interesting... I'm looking forward to better materials and quality. The releases in the past few years have been sloppy and cheap leather too.

Missed the whole release this weekend as I'm not in town.

Nike is squeezing out the reseller market by charging reseller price!

These retail stores really need to learn from the States. Seattle premium outlet was much more efficient in tagging people with wristbands and allocating sizes.

Onto the next release.

Hmm, I'm thinking about buying a pair of red octobers... but don't know who to trust online to be honest. All could be fakes.

Why... Unless you plan to wear them.

Flightclub is your best bet. People buying receipts to pass fakes as legit.

I am really confused with prices at this time, been quoted from 3k - 5k or so right now.

Best bet would be RIF or Flightclub like others said.

Another option is Nike ID Air Force 1s. I've seen a few people getting them done up in all red to feed their Yeezy fever... LOL

Depends on condition and size, bigger sizes 10+ go between 4.5-5 K
Yeezy 2s go for about 500-1000 more than the 1s. Also depending on the color ,from what i've seen the black and red are the most expensive/popular.

If you can get it for 3K in your size and authentic from a reputable place, not ebay then go for it.

Hi guys, not a AJ collector but I just got a pair of 11's retro low in size 12. Got em for $1149hkd (~$150usd) Should I just wear them/keep these and wait or sell them off? What should I expect to get?

You don't have to be a collector, just do whatever you intended from the start... Either enjoy and wear them OR resell them at market price.
