Even though I had strong doubts of grabbing a pair of the Nike Air Flows in the Cactus color-way, I decide to go to Nike 21 Mercer for the release anyway. I already secured the Emerald pair and was hoping to get the other c/w to complete the pack. When I got there and saw the campers, I knew I had very little chance. This was also a double release. The other shoe was the popular moon boot, the Nike Air Foamposite Pro in the retro color-way. Wait until you see the line for that in my panoramic image…
Arriving to 21 Mercer, the crowd of campers that are MOSTLY made up of RESELLERS, if not all, are waiting to get their hands on a shoe they think I’m wearing. How do I know they are campers? It’s always the same faces I see at these camp outs. Also, I showed up in my Lunar Flows and for some reason they assumed that was the shoe they were losing sleep over. Really guys? You’re that dumb that you don’t even know which shoe you are camping out for over 11 hours? You should at least know that. SMMFH
For those that don’t know, these are the modern day version of the original Air Flow, the Nike Lunar Flow. These were not the one’s you thought you were camping out for. They look VERY different.
This dude and a few others were there from 3:00am for the Air Flow drop and instead of walking away with the shoe, all they did was leave with little sleep.
It’s sad when you get your girl or lady friend to camp out with you. WTF is the world coming too. Girls are grinding it out with their man/friend for this stuff now. What’s their take? Oh wait,…”He gonna buy me some cloths when he sells it and take me out to eat somewhere nice. I’m tired of McDonalds.” LMFAO.
These guys take the crown. Check the Dude with his shirt off and chillin’ in his tank top like he’s sleeping at home. The other guy under the sheet walked away with 6 pairs I believe. He had a couple of people camping out for him. He was there from 12:00 or so. Crazy dude grinding it out; He was the same guy at the RF Ultra-Marine with the Red Hoody.
This employee above walked out with the Air Flows on. That tells me there were obviously more than just the VERY few that were released; Something like 20 pairs. This guy just started working there too, so if they allowed him to dig into the stack, I’m sure any employee that wanted one got one. …and of course their *cough
v.i.p.’s * cough. Nothing we can really do about it, but it’s sucks to see shit like that from a consumer standpoint. Especially for something as limited as these.
The guy here with his foot up on the car is from Flight Club NYC. He bought a pair of the Emeralds from someone and than posted them up right away for $600; Now they dropped the price to $535 and a few other sizes have appeared. I guess they aren’t selling on eBay for the prices these guys thought they would. No one will buy these for $600 guy. Also, there’s SUPPOSE to be more Air Flows releasing, so don’t get caught out there for these prices. I don’t think you would either because I know my readers are much smarter than that.
This panoramic image is the line that was left for the Nike Air Foamposite Pro. People really going crazy for these Foams. How do you take a person’s life for a pair of sneakers?
So after a few minutes online, they sold out pretty quick to the people in the front of the line. Giving that they only had 20 pairs or so, why would you let someone buy both color-ways? They should have just let you choose one from either C/W so others could get a chance and not allow the one guy to walk away with 6 pairs (West 147 did this). I can’t get mad, but you may be wondering why I was getting in on the campers in some of my comments. Well, when you laugh at me and talk about me under your breath, expect me to call you idiots out. I’m mostly talking about the people in the front too. They know who I am and if they talk shit about me or laugh at me, I may as well poke them back. Catch you all on the next one which will be the Ronnie Fieg Mint Leaf release…
This is the Nike Air Flow that has made the HYPE beast, that don’t have a clue what this shoe is, come out. All because a couple of Euro resellers post these on the Bay for $500 +. I’ll have a PSE on these with a couple of wallpapers that you will not want to miss.
