Since when is sleeping past 5AM considered sleeping in? LOL... Man these shoes got us by the balls, waking up before sunrise and waiting in line for days.

Paying a premium for these is looking like a decent option. Cheapest I've found is $280 shipped.

^ Hop on that. I paid close to $400 for my Royals ($60 was duties ). I can almost guarantee these will be pushing $400 for the next couple of months when everyone is scrambling to get a pair.

I still remember that time. First time lining up for shoes. FTL Hornby told me the night before that they were getting them. I wait on Saturday, the staff strolls in around regular opening hours to open the store and asks what we're doing outside and that they're not getting them.

$280 is decent, these are gonna be around 400-450 for a couple of months. Royals currently at $350-400 and it's almost been a year.

Metro mall got pissed at the line up. HoH gave out ticket sizes and sent everyone home. Lucky them. Some guys line up for 15 mins and got a pair. Probably not their own size but oh well.

Livestock confirmed that their Vancouver shipment has been delayed. Complex has yet to receive theirs... I wonder if HOH even has stock yet.

FACK, that sucks about the HOH metro incident. Its good for those people who had so much free time that they could wait in line and awesome for those people that just showed up. Really sucks for the rest of us...

Honestly I think the fairest way in an in store raffle. Footlocker does so in the US and I don't understand why they don't in Vancouver. If you are worried about bribes then have the raffle winners drawn electronically by head office instead of in store by staff.

Well the majority of the people lining up are asians. Throw in a a mandatory math problem in there for acquiring the shoes and you can resolve all the shoe-lineup related violence in the states... trollolol

If you are lining up for 2 days because you really love a shoe that's awesome. Unfortunately my time is worth more and my lifestyle doesn't permit such waste of time. If you are lining up for 2 days just to flip for $200 profit minus expenses then you really need to find a new side gig. Better money can be made or fun can be had with this free time.

So HOH has their stock? Did they had out tickets for all of it? So no chance getting a pair from them? Bastards should have done the "sweepstakes model" right from the start,

Congratulations!! You have been chosen to be able to purchase the Air Jordan 1 'bred' aka 'banned'.

You have requested a size X.

Unfortunately, Nike did not get the shoes to us in time for the release so as soon as they arrive you will be notified.

Thank you from Dipt.

That's good to hear someone locally won a raffle, nobody on here has won anything from livestock "raffles".

Yea then after that they opened it up for international submitters, to gain more traffic to their site. I don't blame them for doing it but it substantially decreased the chances for locals.
