StockX TV Ep. 4 – Sneakerhead Roundtable


(hip hop music) – Welcome to episode four of StockX TV. I am your host Josh Luber. We will do a short, abbreviate
version at the desk today, because we want to get
right in to a long feature that we are very excited to show you. So, let’s jump right in to Market Watch. In today’s episode of Market Watch, we’re gonna start with something
a little bit different. As you know, StockX has since launched watches and handbags onto
the stock market of things in addition to sneakers. Let’s start with a bag. Let’s start with this bag right here. This bag is part of a collection between Louis Vuitton and Supreme. Back at the end of
June, beginning of July, they released a collaboration
with over 50 different items. This big keep all right here,
which retails for about $3500, is selling on StockX for over $8,000. As part of the collaboration
there’s t-shirts, there’s hoodies selling for over $4,000, wallets selling for $1,500,
and of course, sneakers. There’s three different sneakers, a white, a red, and a black one, and they’re all selling
for about 12 to $1,300. The most notable piece
of the entire collection is actually a huge big trunk. People are asking as much
as $250,000 for this trunk. Shipping alone’s gotta be
at least a couple grand. Alright, this an interesting collection, but let’s get back to what
we normally talk about, which is sneakers. This right here is the Nike
Mars Craft Tom Sachs yard shoe. This shoe, which is a
re-release of 2012 version between the artist Tom Sachs and Nike, is supposed to be a shoe
that you would wear on Mars. The first version, which came out in 2012, if you can even find
it, is selling for over three to $4,000 today on StockX. This version, which released
for the first time in June and then again with a re-release in July, is now selling between seven and $800. Okay, that wraps up our very
quick Market Watch today because we want to get
right in to the feature. But you may have noticed a big blue shoe sitting over there at the end. That is the LeBron 4 Birthday, and we pulled that out
because we went and looked for the rarest LeBron we could find. This shoe, if you notice
those are not Knicks colors, that’s what the Cavs’
colors used to look like, and that mesh box
actually has a metal plate that’s got LeBron’s birthday
on it, December 30th, 1984, and we pulled that out
because we wanted to remember a different type of Cavs off-season. A Cav off-season where
we weren’t talking about the dismantling of the Cavs. All we were doing, was
celebrating a championship. Last year, during the off-season, we had the chance to sit down on the floor of Quicken Loans Arena,
where the Cavs play, and have a discussion, a
sneakerhead round-table, with five of the most
extraordinary sneakerheads that you’ll ever meet. So, without further ado,
let’s go right to Cleveland, to Quicken Loans Arena,
and talk to everybody. We’re here on the court
at the Q, the Cavs’ arena. We’re not dressed up, so
we’re not playing today, but I figured this would
be a good opportunity to get everyone together
and talk about sneakers. Why don’t we start by just
going around, and for everybody, introducing themself
and kind of what they do within sneakers and just in general. – My name is John Wexler,
I’m the vice-president of Adidas Global Entertainment
and Influencer Marketing, and what that means is,
our teams around the world are responsible for seeding
and product placement across film, TV, music
video, what have you, and negotiating all the relationships with celebrities and non-athletes
that the brand works with. – My name’s Kevin Neghandi,
SportsCenter anchor at ESPN, and at 10 years old, I
remember being made fun of because I had awful looking plastic shoes, and I’ve been obsessed with
sneakers and shoes since. – I’m Foamer Simpson, I
have a YouTube channel. My brother and I do
sneaker-related videos, everything from performance stuff to the lifestyle side of things. I went to LaSalle Academy, which is Ron Artest, God Shammgod, Lenny Cooke. Played basketball my whole life, that’s kind of, was another
in, as far as sneakers went. When I was a little kid,
guys like Penny Hardaway and Chris Webber it was like, that was a huge tie into
the sneakers and stuff. I also played in college, and
then I played professionally overseas in Chile, Germany, and Mexico. I’ve been around sneakers
and basketball my whole life. – I think that story,
just basketball alone, most of us predicted the same age, we kind of all have the same story right? We said grow up playing
basketball when Jordan played, I never played in
college or professionally like Foamer did, right, but I always played basketball, and we all have the same thing. Played when Jordan played,
we wanted Jordan’s, my mom wouldn’t buy us Jordan’s. We all have literally the exact same story of anyone my age. I never worked in sneakers
in any way whatsoever. I can’t tell you the number of times that I applied for jobs at Nike and Adidas and no one ever returned my random resumes that were sent in. – So this is about revenge and resentment. (laughter) – For sure, it’s absolutely about revenge. I almost, intentionally, I
mean I was a start-up guy for the longest time and I
almost intentionally avoided working in sneakers or
starting any sneaker-related businesses almost at a
fear of creating a business that was just and excuse
to play with sneakers. Until one day, I found
a really good excuse to play with sneakers or
at least sneaker data, and that ended up creating Campless, which was a sneaker data company, and that led to that becoming StockX, which is what we do now in StockX being a stock market for sneakers. Because of the relationships
that we have at StockX with Dan Gilbert to be
able to do this here at the Cavs’ arena, which is awesome, but also to do a lot of fun things and create the show and be
able to invite you guys here and just talk with people that I think would be interesting to
talk with sneakers about. That’s StockX and me,
and just happy to be able to talk about sneakers
with interesting people. – I’m Matthew Panzarino, I’m
editor in chief of Tech Crunch which is a website about technology. We right about pretty much all tech, but we focus on start-ups,
emerging technologies, young companies, companies founded by people with passions for things. My sneaker history is I
was a Reebok Pump guy, that was my era. No offense to the Jordan lusters, but that Pump, that basketball, that orange with the white tongue, I was all about it and I
lusted after those things. I enjoy sneakers, I love the
wearable art aspect of them. Yeah, that’s my basic history. I’m Andre Ljustina, also
known as Croatian Style. Kind of been collecting
sneakers for 16 years plus. I’m the owner projectblitz.com,
which is kind of like a new project I’ve been working on the past few years. We kind of curated an entire
collection of sneakers. It is on the aftermarket
where we were basically selling at the market price. With StockX, it’s actually out there making determinations of
what things are actually, you know, their value and what not. Sneakers in itself after the past 16 years to just become this commodity. It’s no longer just this whole niche thing that people would be like, damn, why do you have all of
these boxes of shoes in here, that’s kinda crazy. Some girls that were dating is like, I can’t hang out with any guy
that has more shoes than me. (laughs) – I think in a lot of other places where you’re looking at
tickets and other things, this is what I can buy it for, this is what I can sell it for,
and that’s all I care about. With the sneaker game, it is a game, and those people do play as well. It’s sort of a testament to
the drive that people have to enjoy sneakers and wear them. It’s something a little bit different than a lot of other
double-sided markets like that. – I respect the passion in
every one of those kids, but I agree with you,
there’s a certain point where the scale goes from extreme passion to just like, I’m grabbing, I’m ruining other people’s
experiences to profit myself. As long as there’s an authenticity there of passion, love for the
game, and sneakers itself, you kinda gotta just accept it, not hate. I think anyone who’s a creator, they understand the narrative on top, not just the design
itself, but they’re looking for the references that went into it and they know sneakers so well. Most of these kids haven’t
grown up in the culture that they’re, it means more
than just a product itself to them, it’s like a
statement that they’re making to broader society. – So one other thing I wanted
to ask for everybody is, who are other interesting sneakerheads who you wouldn’t know? Like, either you know
personally or found out, ’cause I think that’s like
some of the interesting stuff. We see some of these in social media as they make themself more accessible, but I didn’t know about Michael Smith. – Michael Smith, Cassidy
Hubbarth, they all talk about it. Other guys and ESPN reporter
to the point where I’ve said we need to do something on
ESPN, whether it’s ESPN2, ESPN, we’re just gonna show all
our kicks, and just talk about which ones are our favorite. – I don’t think there is
that many people out there right now that we haven’t kind of heard of if they’re collectors because
there are so many blogs. You have all these different channels that are all looking for content. – Silicon Valley is weird because there’s a sort of mentality that if you pay attention to material
things or physical things then you’re somehow lesser,
that your goals aren’t in the, your heart isn’t in the
right place, or whatever. Everything has to be about
the betterment of humanity. The joke is like every product
is gonna change the world and make things better. People care about material things as much as the next person, especially
once they can afford it, and they start making a little money, and they get stock options at a company that’s taking off, or whatever. What you find is, in the
closet, a lot of these guys are actually sneakerheads,
they do collect. I know investors and people
that work at companies and start-ups and CEO’s that do that. A lot of them don’t
talk about it publicly. They don’t show off a big collection, but in reality they got like 800 sneakers. – They’re all asking me
for Yeezy’s, I know that. (everyone laughing) – And in public, they can’t say, but back door, they’re
like e-mailing, you know. – Run DMC in the 80’s,
NWA started the whole fad with the starter jackets and
everything with the Raiders, because they were the entertainers that brought it across the board. So all these guys, the
athletes will do stuff, and they’ll do it because they’re seeing the entertainers start it first. And then, an athlete wears it, and then the kid identifies
through both of them, that it’s okay, it’s
very cool to do all this. – Take the Pharrell hat. Pharrell wore the hat to the Oscar’s, and everyone’s like Arby’s
and all these jokes, but then NBA players started wearing it and everybody wanted it. So it’s like the celebrities
take that risk initially, and then the athletes masculinize it, and then it goes broad. – Every Sunday, Cam Newton wears a hat. We’re talking about what
he did on the field, Monday morning we’re talking
about what did he wear, because of the hat, one
thing sparks everything else. – We worked with Snoop Dogg and football. For example, if you didn’t
know Snoop the rapper and you just saw him around football, you’d think he is a legit
mind around that sport. He put our football category
on his back for years. Now we have gone out and signed
all these amazing athletes, from Aaron Rodgers to Dak
Prescott, and all those guys. – When you watch a game, you see a number, you see a helmet, you don’t see the face. What stands out, the
cleats that they wear. We’ve seen that in the
last year and a half. A guy like Antonio
Brown, customized cleats, the idea of fighting the
league to see if we can wear cleats the way we want
to in different colors, and that’s how these
guys separate themselves with personality. That’s that big fight
that’s going on right now, showing your personality in a league that doesn’t want to show
that type of personality. That Von Miller moment on social media, when I saw it I was like,
wow, that’s pretty cool. – The NFL banned the
shoes and simultaneously posted six pictures of that shoe on their Instagram that same day. All their press is around
it and then they banned it, which generated more press for
us, so it wasn’t the worst. – Which goes back to
the ’85 Jordan sneaker banned by the NBA. – I don’t know if any of you guys saw that we just did this
thing with Joe Haden. So I was at his house, and we were looking through his cleats, and he’s a Jordan brand athlete so each year they give
him a different shoe. So last year he had the 7’s,
this year he has the 9’s, And I was asking him exactly that. He said when he first put them on, he said they were this and this, I went back and had them
remove material here, remove material here to make it, ’cause at the end of the
day, those guys have to play. The fact that it’s a basketball shoe they’re conscripting to be a cleat. He’s like, but now they’re great. The actual cleat part in the bottom is exactly what it would be if it was whatever the
highest performing cleat. You can make the upper look
however you wanna make it look. – He posted Von’s cleats, too. (laughing) – It’s just a quick observation,
we all love sneakers, five of us at this table
are wearing Adidas. – I saw that, I noticed
that, you’re not, by the way. – I noticed that, too, but I
appreciate your observation. – I’ve heard so much about
the boost, you wear it once. – There’s no question that
there’s been this conflict of four or five phenomenal
things happening at the same time for Adidas, and it’s made it a lot more relevant. You see the relevance across the board within the sneakerhead community, within the resale community,
and everything else. I think there’s something
to be said about, and we talk a lot about
how you kind of grew up, you flip a couple pairs, be
able to pay for your collection. Kids can’t do that with Jordan’s
so much, right now, today. This is my very narrow perspective on the data and the dollars, kids can’t make nearly as much money reselling Jordan’s today, because Jordan in the past couple years, has put out a lot more supply. Retail prices have gone up, so resale premiums have gone down. There’s only a couple profit dollars. There’s a lot more profit dollars to be made today if
you’re selling Yeezy’s, if you’re selling NMD’s,
and stuff like that. It’s this idea of scarcity
versus availability. It’s about having these
super limited Yeezy’s that no one can get unless you know Wex, and I know him and I don’t even get them, that sell for a $1,200 premium. As opposed to a pair of Jordan’s, that now almost anybody can
get a general release Jordan, and you can maybe make
30, 40, $50 doing it. Open question for everyone in general is, is that a good thing, that
everyone can get Jordan’s, or is it better to be
in the scarcity region? – To make numbers simple,
you have 100 people in line somewhere for a Jordan. Let’s say 50 percent of them
are gonna sell it after. Then you have another 50 percent that are actually just kinda getting it, you don’t know if they’re getting it because they wanna keep it for themselves, or they’re just kinda into the hype. You take that first 50 percent out, that are buying it to flip
it, you raise up the prices, you cannibalize yourself and
now those people are gone. So you have, only another 50 people there. Let’s say half of those that are out there that are trying to get it only because other people are
out there trying to get it, you know, sucked into the hype. Boom, they’re gone in the next one. So now you just have a small amount left, and what are they? These are the people
that everyone was saying, everyone in line, they all
want it for themselves, if you really look outside the box, it’s just a perceived value. Everything is really, mostly hype-driven. It is, but isn’t the
fundamental human behavior that if anybody can walk in a store and buy a pair, if my grandmother can walk in a store and buy a pair, I don’t want that, nobody wants that. It’s just a supply and
demand equation, right. So if it’s a $1,200 premium
for a pair of Yeezy’s, or a $40 pair of Jordan’s,
where do you get that line where there’s still enough
hype and scarcity out there that the people still want them, but not so much that nobody can get Yeezy’s at retail. – If you have the classic
Stan Smith white and green, or you have a classic Superstar, or you have a white-on-white
Air Force One, why does that always sell. Mini demand on certain models, it only creates a better
environment for next releases. If you create some crazy colorway, that no one really cares about,
there’s nothing behind it, and there’s tons of it,
that’s when it sits. If it’s something classic and
it’s always gonna be in style, you can create a million pairs and eventually it’s gonna sell. – I think there are like
three main aspects to it. There’s storytelling, one,
which if you created a story the people can buy into, that
creates a desire for the shoe and demand an ongoing pursuit of it. You’re pursuing an ideal, you’re not just pursuing a product. The second part of it is you
have this drafting effect. You create these pole
position products, sneakers, that are high design,
high demand, low volume, that make a statement
about what you wanna do, and then your other shoes draft behind it. There’s a brand decision to say hey, we’re gonna produce these, we’re gonna keep the limited quantity. Sometimes, you wanna
make more and you can’t, technologically speaking,
or production capacity, but sometimes it’s just,
this is all we’re gonna make. That creates that feeling
of exclusivity and demand and desirableness. The third is production
volume versus demand. I think Nike has definitely
been twiddling the volume up, to see how high they can get, and go hey, this is how much money we’re giving up. We’re giving up six billion
dollars a year in revenue that we could have gotten if
we produced more sneakers. But, you’ve still got a trunk
there where you’re like, I wonder if we twiddled the knob up, how far we could twiddle it
up before that goes negative. – The public needs to be more educated that it doesn’t need
to sell out to be cool. It doesn’t need to sell out. It’s awesome when you’re
able to go into a store to see cool stuff on the shelf, and not the same thing everywhere. Back in the day, you could go to a store, you could be like, oh man, they still have one of these
left, cool, I didn’t get it, and buy it. It’s fine if a shoe sits around
for a couple weeks, 30 days. – Its this 140 characters, let’s get something out real quick, I wanna say how I feel,
and boom let’s move on. ‘Cause I look at it like, with the iPhone, whenever the iPhone’s out,
everybody has to be in line. You have to get it quick,
and then you gotta wait. So, everybody has to have
it because it’s the status that I got it first, no matter what it is, no matter if it’s good or not,
I got it first, you didn’t. I think it falls into
that competition label, where everybody’s trying to beat somebody, because they want to
stand out and be unique. And that’s the only
way they can be unique. Just because a sneaker’s
still available a month after the release doesn’t
mean it’s not a good sneaker. You brought that up when you
were recommending sneakers and you said the Maroon 6 Jordan’s and it was still out there. It’s a great sneaker. Just because it’s not
being consumed by everybody and you can’t find it doesn’t mean you don’t go out and get it. You can still enjoy the
process of wearing the sneaker ’cause the way it’s built
and the way it looks. – Absolutely. – I think abut that all the time. I don’t need to get something because somebody has it and it’s sold out. I wanna get it because I wanna wear it. – And I like when stuff is more available, especially now because I
don’t have the time or energy to jump through hoops
to try to get a sneaker. If I miss something, almost
never will I pay resale, because there’s another
one coming right behind it. It would be great if,
because that’s how it was back in the day, there wasn’t
even a lot of times like, these release dates, you could
just walk into the store, and see what you saw, and it
was like that’s the new Iverson or whatever it was. Now, as he said, things
have shifted a little bit. Its not like that anymore. The kid who was walking
around looking at the stuff, that’s such a small percentage. The reason why sneakers has grown to be a little bit bigger
now than when it was just this very small hardcore niche thing is, they hype, the hype machine. I think the brands who do it well are the ones, like you
said, that balance it. Adidas has done a great job with that. Not too available, it’s pretty available. Then there’s the Yeezy’s,
and it’s like ahh, Yeezy’s, must get Yeezy, you know what I mean. – If we create more things
that are interactive, then I think people will start
to get that individuality. But, nothing’s wrong with
hype, everyone likes hype. Someone is announcing a
concert or something like that. – I think kids are just
doing with the brands ’cause that’s kinda train them to do over the last 15 to 20 years, and that’s why it’s so
controversial when we put out, and speaking on behalf of Adidas, when we put out an Ultraboost, and then we don’t put it out
in significant enough quantity to the point where we
feel like we maximize it, so we come back to it a
little bit after that, and the word restock has come into this negative connotation. We never put out the
level of that first burst that our competition has put out to create that sort of cycle. So we have the ability to keep going back. I think that we’re slowly but surely trying to chip away at
this idea or notion of, don’t get me wrong,
there’s certain products that will never ever restock ever, but I think that we’re still figuring out what that level is and
we’re trying to do our best to retrain the community that maybe access and availability can be the new hype, you know. To your point of kids who are
open-minded enough to say, well, maybe I don’t have
to buy into this mindset of hard launch after hard
launch after hard launch where I’ve gotten fatigue
like you were describing. The mindset is so locked
in to where it is right now that that’s gonna be a longer burn for brands to really negotiate
that with the populous. – Why is restock a negative? – It’s that scarcity
model that exclusivity drives a lot of hype,
so if you restock it, to the kid who got it and waited in line for the first release, they’re like, yo, you just kind of
blew up my bank account. – If you collected original Jordan’s from the 80’s and 90’s, and
then when they retro-ed it, you’re like, aww they retro-ed it, right? So what do they do, they switch a little
stitch color somewhere, or something on it, right, and that’s suppose to appease some people, but then other people complain. You’re never gonna make everyone happy. But the people who always
complain about that, and this is coming from somebody that their business is about that after-market, I think the restocking aspect
is actually a better thing. – I do like the version number stuff like the Ultraboost, I
don’t know if it’s official, but the after-market stuff
is the 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, right. The revision stuff, this is
very common in Silicon Valley, the first release of your
app, there’s an adage. The first release of your app,
you should feel embarrassed releasing the first thing you release, because if you don’t, it’s too late. You’re releasing it too late, get it out. That’s sometimes called an
MVP, minimum viable product, and sometimes there’s arguments about whether that’s
good or bad or whatever, but that’s for another time. You release it, you
get that feedback loop, you iterate, you get the feedback loop, you iterate on the product, hopefully, while applying that
human judgment and going, yeah, I get the feedback,
but we’ve got a vision, and we’re gonna keep
moving this direction. There’s a whole nother level
of nostalgia attached to it so they can’t make big
changes and things like that, but in this new world, having something like an Ultraboost where
the next one is like the cage is clear and
the weave has an extra two colors in it that
allows us more variegation which gives the shoe a
better look from a distance or whatever the case, whatever design decisions are being made on that rapid scale, I think
that’s very compelling. It takes the air out of the
whole restocks negativity because it allows you to say,
you can buy this version, there’ll be another version,
just buy what you want. That takes away the whole demand thing unless you want it to be there by creating a very small
amount intentionally. I think the technology
and supply chain stuff, and manufacturing rapid prototyping, and manufacturing 3D printing
and roboticized weaves, and things like that
are gonna change the way that a lot of sneakers are made. Not so much the Jordan’s,
but definitely future models Nike makes or Adidas makes
or other manufacturers in that way. I think that it won’t be too long before we see completely
customized sneakers, far beyond picking colors or an ID on it. – I want to just go back
to, right before we went down the path of NFL, we were talking about the influencers on the music side. Forget Kanye and Pharrell,
they’re at the top and they have their own shoes, but it seems to me like we’re in an era where anyone who is even
remotely an artist today, it was like how the
NBA was in the mid ’90s where everyone had their
own signature shoe. Everybody is with a brand
right now doing something whether they have their own shoe, or whether they’re tied to it,
I mean do you feel like that? I feel like name someone who is an artist and doesn’t have a shoe. Big Sean, Camron, – Entertainer-wise? – Yeah like entertainer-wise,
everybody’s got like a shoe at some point, and then, – is affiliated to some – Is affiliated to some brand, right? We had that in the NBA, everybody
had their signature shoe and that all kind of went
away, and I feel like, it’s gonna shake out at some point soon, and that brands will stop doing that, and there’ll still be Kanye
and Pharrell and Drake and whoever is at that top, but, – Not all together? – Yeah. – The one thing I can observe on is that social media and internet broadcast media that allow creators to speak
directly to their followers and directly to their fans that
did not exist 10 years ago, there was absolutely no way
for an up-and-coming artist to say, this is me, this is my
personal style, how you doin. Everything was filtered
through six layers of PR and releases and contracts
and everything else. Now, if an artist wants to wear a shoe, they just wear the shoe. That direct outlet, that
sort of raw, real thing, it’s what YouTube taps into, when you give your opinion on a shoe, theoretically, the trust
that you’ve built up with your viewers they say, oh that’s what they really feel. I think that brands will
continue to seek out those organic moments by
going to those people early and facilitating that. – I’m sure that their
agents five, six years ago, seven years ago, when it
really started to kick in for the celeb culture on
social media were like, I don’t know if this is good for us. They’re able to communicate
without that governing body saying is this good for your
career, bad for your career. Brands work with those people because they’re basically,
in essence, marketing. – Ultraboost, for a minute there, that white-on-white Ultraboost, was almost Kanye’s shoe
for that moment in time. – The one that he wore to the Bull’s game? – Yeah. – Those were Energy Boosts, DSM’s. – No, I’m talking about the
white-white Ultraboost, right. – The white-white, the one
in the picture of the jump. Yeah, those were crazy. The first ones were Energy Boost CSM’s with like that royal
blue hint in the heal. They were just general release shoes. That was the moment where
everything came to this crescendo. We’d just launched season one. He was wearing Ultraboosts around, He’s the first to have that
purple heel, OG colors, wearing that around New York, so that we didn’t expose
the Yeezy’s ’til the launch. Then, the shoe’s obviously awesome. And then he did that Bull’s game, and the Energy Boosts, outside the U.S, were very sought after, but in the U.S they were kind of just moving along. Then, he wore those to that Bull’s game, performed all day just impromptu, and the next day there were
lines around the country at retailers for a general
release running shoe, and that had never happened
in the industry before, ever, in history. – How mindful are you
guys when your clients go to basketball games,
what they’re wearing? ‘Cause honestly, you’re
getting free pub right there, everybody in the front row
is looking and watching, and then you get caught
in a shot, or a video, or a play, and boom, it turns viral. – It’s definitely not haphazard. It’s very planned out. Guys are hitting us up for tickets from that community all the time. If we know that there’s
a launch coming up, we try to put those things together. If not, then we just try
to make sure they’re fresh. – It looks organic, but
it’s a creative buzz. – We’ve been very blessed and
even with the Harden shoe, YG and Nipsey Hussle were sitting in the front wearing the shoe,
and YG and James are friends. So, he was wearing James’ shoe even though it was a Laker game. He was shooting on the court with him which I thought was a
really dope photo moment. – LeBron just hit us up, and
said they want the court back, so we gotta wrap this up. – His palace. – It is his palace. I think J.R. is waiting
for us in the back though, so we’re good. Thank you all very much for being here. This was a lot of fun,
I hope you guys had fun. – Thanks for listening. – Thanks for having us. – I appreciate you guys
coming and I don’t know. We’ll see if they’ll show us
around the rest of the place before LeBron gets here. Welcome back, welcome back to the desk. We appreciate you re-joining us here, and we really appreciate
John Wexler from Adidas, Kevin Negandhi from SportsCenter, Matthew Panzarino from Tech Crunch, Foamer Simpson, and Dre AKA Croatian Style for an unbelievable conversation on the floor at Quicken Loans Arena. That was awesome. Wish we could do that
every time, but we can’t. However, next time we will have supermodels, cartoon figures, and we will make our own sneakers, and you get to choose one of each. (balls dribbling) – Ideas and thoughts about
where the market’s going, where we’re at today, it’s
just interesting to hear other people’s take on it. Right now Boost is really

  • Y'all gotta get better mics. So much varying levels of audio where someone sounds like they're on the mic and then some people, have me turning my audio interface all the way up. Also buying stuff based on hype is so corny to me cuz the iPhone still sells like crazy regardless of scarcity. They only sell more when it first comes out because it just came out and also they release before the holiday season.

  • Since u guys went to watch and bag u guys don't pay attention to quality no more I got a couple b-grade sneakers u guys sent

  • Parts of this show seem to be favoring adidas and just because a rep is there which is ridiculous adidas is doing great things don't get me wrong but it seems a little one sided

  • Really great to see a growing company like StockX take screenshots from videos done by smaller YouTubers without giving any credit, or notice. 25:12, taken from a good friend of mine's video.

    Straight robbery.

  • the whole reason people get into this part of the sneaker game is having stuff that other people dont have. whether its actually limited or an illusion it doesnt matter, the hype part is the important factor

  • DO NOT USE STOCKX. My order got cancelled after 1 week, but the price of the item i wanted went UP, so in turn I had to spend $600 extra if I wanted to buy the same item! THEY HAVE NO COMMUNICATION. All the replies are copy/paste from their QA. They say that they penalize the seller if the seller break the rules, but that penalty fee don't go to you!! It's like they make money from seller regardless and don't care about the buyer if the transaction goes bad. STAY AWAY FROM STOCKX.

  • Stockx sent me a pair of stained jordan 7s an refused to give me a refund *do not buy from them* the authenticators looked at the shoe an sent it anyway company is a joke
