All sold out. Many exceptionally overpriced resales on e-bay and stockx. We got badly 'botted and very, very few went to real 'heads. Looks like orange are starting bids at 3K. And if you got the email about tomorrow's yellow sale at Nike, good luck - they are even worse for getting a chance. www(d0t)ighsnobiety(d0t)com/p/sneaker-reselling-future/good article for explaining the Sneakers trading and futures market.

How many real Deadheads(those who have followed for 20-30-50 years) actually ended up with these from any retailer? I'd say less than 1%. Most every online raffle was through Instagram. How many real deadheads in their 70's and 80's even use instagram? These were only released for the hype beast and reseller. An exponential amount more would have been sold if produced and marketed to everyone. More shoes, more sales, more money...right? The retailer didn't mark these up to thousands of dollars and neither did Nike....so there's no benefit in having these so difficult to obtain. It's a real shame as these are nice shoes...super cool shoes...but...only released as hype and not released for long time fans. This release turned a great shoe into a status item for influencers and something to be resold instead of appreciated. They really would look great in any Deadhead's collection or footwear rotation. ...But the only ones to get them probably haven't even heard the music, let alone appreciate it. :(

I was thinking the same thing, it would have been nice for real GD Heads to get a chance to get a pair of these. I wanted to wear them. It is sickening on how many are already posted on eBay for thousands of dollars. I get everyone wants to make a buck...but danggggg...you can't tease us with a unique product like this and not expect us to not want to dance in them!!! :)

If you visit any skateshops, who carry these sneakers, you will see that they have 2 sets of drawings. One for their regular customers and one for everyone else. Heck some even state that their drawings are for their best custmers only. Why coukdn't they have done that here? Wouldn't it be better to have a reseller complain that he has all these bots and only got one pair versus 17 loyal dead heads post they got one pair. How about a little appreciation for those of us who have spent hundreds. If not thousands, on this site? I have to get a chuckle over these influencers who have never listened to the Dead before read off the same press release and mispronounce Owsley's name.
