How is someone so jammy, never won a lottery for anything decent even the ones just to flip.

Wanted the Sacai ldv, look great to me in the pics I’ve seen today. I’d pay £300 for a pair of the red/blues.

I didn't bother with them but can see the appeal. Especially for Summer kicks.

On a side note, I'm tempted to flip the Bred's (and for the record, I've NEVER flipped a Sneak) - great quality but the resale is increasing daily.

Lee, they're not going for a whole load more than that on eBay… or at least they were yesterday.

Cheers Mark, I will have a gander, out of interest I entered slamjams raffle but they still show pending a draw which is odd. Still might get lucky!

First time SNKRS raffle win on the Sacais for me, seems a lot of people won so maybe they've found a way to make it harder for bots via the app
If I was planning on selling Sacai or Breds etc which im not I would hold for 6-12 months as prices will double long term as stock availability dwindles

Breds maybe, sacai’s won’t. Once the hype has died down they’ll be much less

Think I’m edging more to the greens, I’m annoyed at having to pay reseller prices again for a shoe I wanted. I buy much less now than I used to but it still grates

Slamjam rejected this morning , likewise don’t buy much anymore so bit the bullet on the blues and a local eBay hookup means delivered tonight. Unjustified price but a killer shoe.

Greens growing on me

Managed to get both the Sacai's and Cactus Jacks. From the same place! God knows how!

Lucky fella, really that sucks for everyone everyone else surely all these shops should distribute the shoes to new winners every raffle when possible? Share the wins? Or every other so no more than 1 win per month or something. Or not the same winners/household same month on more than one shoe? maybe anyway that’s a whole new idea, great score for you for profit if you were inclined and I wouldn’t blame you either.

Could probs use a load of different email addresses or IP's, I reckon most of these stores don't bother to look too much into it all.

The whole launches/drop culture is becoming lame.

£300+ for those Sacai’s is mad.

Can someone explain please, why companies just don’t make enough shoes for everyone to get what they want? Instead of releasing generic shite constantly, why not make enough of the good shit?

Edit: I had to pay extra for air raids yesterday, pisses me off even at only an extra £50 Evil

Not really a trainer guy but quite like the look of the upcoming OAMC adidas collab. Like how Adidas do collabs, reminds me of the first wave of rick owens stuff. Think it's cool to release proper new silhouettes rather than riff endlessly on existing ones like Nike do.

They're pretty wild. Bit too sci-fi for me, but yeah, gotta appreciate the effort they go to.
