This week alone there were 4 shock drops.
Tuesday - Patent Bred 1s at Nike TEC and YD
Wednesday - Cool Grey 11s at Nike TEC (and YD I think)
Thursday - Patent Bred 1s at Nike YD
Thursday - Atmosphere Womens AJ 1s at various FTLs
I missed the 1s on Tuesday but a few friends got, apparently Nike kept re-raffling pairs but people weren't picking up so they dropped them in-store. Wednesday I got a pair of CG 11s for the homie ferndaburn after seeing his post in here a few weeks ago wanting a pair.
Thursday I couldn't make it to YD. Went to TEC to run errands and visit my homegirl at her workplace. While catching up with her we saw a bunch of guys with Nike bags speed walking through the mall heading towards Nike, FTL. A clear sign something just dropped. We followed them, just curious to see whats up. Nike was quiet so whatever dropped was at FTL. When I pulled up it was already a zoo inside, a line of 25 guys, most with Nike bags, buying something.
When I asked an employee what dropped he told me those Womens AJ 1s. I asked hows the stock, he pointed to behind the counter and said whatever is there is all they had. They were selling them straight out the shipment box, so when I saw about 12-15 pairs I left. A good amount of people in the line didn't get, and as I was leaving more people were sprinting in the mall.
The guys with the Nike bags were people who took the train, ubered from YD after getting the Patents.
Im not willing to compete with people like that. Near the end of the line for me. Very soon my only purchases will be random semi-annual finds from the outlet hash wall
