These kids don’t care nothing about sneakers. It’s all about money. These little fuckers are the reason the game is fucked up.

Lmao you can’t get any shoe for “way under 30$”

If I were to buy 1000 dollar sneakers from online, if keep them and where them, not sell them, what is the point of buying nice sneakers if you just sell them in the end. My max budget for sneakers is 300 because I do not feel like spending 400 to 3000 dollars in sneakers when I'm not even making that much a month

Hey. Can't hate on the kid. He makes money off of reselling. He's doing his own thing. He has good taste too. He's from the state of NY and his fav sneaker are Patrick Ewings. I'm sure he's a knowledgeable sneakerhead.

These ppl are why retarded looking shoes like Yeezy's are $2000. How many times by how many idiots can a pair of shoes price be raised $50-$75 b4 it's not profitable anymore and noone will pay more than wut u did? Most those shoes can be bought in store sohy would I pay extra to buy off some kid? Eventually every shoe will reach the max anyone will ever pay or will reach true sneakerheads like me who won't pay even close to that ridiculous price for any shoe and the resell bubble will pop. I cannot wait for that day. Gonna be lots of exclusives floating around for a proper price. For the most part this is sellers selling to sellers. True sneakerheads don't buy shoes from fucks like these. I'm not contributing to my favourite shoes costing thousands. They care more bout the money than the shoes. That's the big difference and a shame. Makes me sick.
