    @BigJNY88 were you able to hit on any of the foot sites this morning? After striking out on them I got hit with the order confirm from the SNKRS raffle. Hope you were able to get yours

    I didn't bother........even though the 2016 Breds have superior (Red) leather to the 2013 Breds, I took the L from my Shiekh raffle attempts and called it a weekend.

    I'll settle with the 2013 Breds that I have taken good care of for the last 2 years, and just get ready for the True Blue 3s in November (easier release) AND the 2017 Royals next May (my real battle).

    Getting an L on the Shiekh raffle was basically a sign telling me, "This is not your time, just get ready for the REAL RELEASES."

    I wasn't gonna go work my *** off for a specific colorway of AJ1s that I already have

    I pretty much gave up on the foot sites after fail to cart for the first 5 minutes of release and just tried my hand at the SNKRS raffle for the hell of it. I'm on to the next as well with the true blues and and royals. I'm hoping they'll release the true blues in toddlers for my son. Something he can grow into. Pretty sure they will though. Then a pair of Space Jams for the both of us.

    This entire Bred 1 release for me was "for the hell of it."  The moment cats started saying that "these were going to be 2013 supply numbers again," I lost the incentive to drive around the entire city of H-Town for raffle tickets. 

    I literally had nothing to lose, I have a pair of Bred 1s from 2013 already (via $400 from resale, unfortunately)........I'm not that insane of a collector.

    In terms of my AJ1 collection, the Royals is the only thing that I'm missing......so I'll be going ham next Spring when that time comes.

    Nah, you went to the right spots.............you just got screwed basically.

    Although, I would've at least attempted to the Sugarland area stores for good measure.

    Struck out on raffles. Tried online this morning no luck and even on the Snkrs app. Ended up buying a pair for 280. Which I think was reasonable.

    Sounds like you cooked! :pimp:

    I didn't hit on nothing at GP. Luckily I hit at SP Galleria and Champs Memorial. Let my boy get the second pair as all I needed was 1 pair. Glad that I at least accomplished that.

    I must be hella unlucky. Been trying to get atleast one 10.5 for myself but no luck. Tried all the shiekh raffles. Had raffle tickets from memorial, Gallo, west oak, gp, willow and first colony. Struck out uk sites. Struck out snkr( my phone, my work phone, and my gf phone) . Don't want to pay resale at all.

    It can help, especially with the whole raffles. You don't have someone working there and putting multiple tickers for friends, heck or to make sure your ticket gets put in. so this can help out a lot

    H-Town Fam stand up!
    My name is Fernando Lopez and been a longtime NT member. I'm currently in a dim situation in town and have shared my story in the General Forum. I know this thread is crickets at times but thought I'd share this with the local crowd. This is link:

    http://niketalk.com/t/652749/i-was-...cancer-and-wanted-to-share-with-the-nt-family

    Free feel to read my story, share my story, and share your story. Any words, thoughts, advice, laughs, and even thread bumps in the General Forum are welcomed.

    Need to grab a bite on Saturday and want to support a local NTer? Family, friends, and the community are hosting a BBQ benefit for my family and I this weekend. If you are in the area, the benefit is taking place in East Houston, I-10 East- Denver Harbor area. Here is the actual flyer that was created for the event.

    Thanks for your time and consideration!
