I was browsing Shoe Wolf’s blog the other day, and I caught this pic of the madness that went down for the “Galaxy” Foamposite 1 release, then I saw the video by Sneaker Nation TV and I still couldn’t believe it. You would’ve thought the Pigeon SB’s were re-releasing. To be honest, I’m old school, and I’ll admit that I’m one of those guys that says “It used to be better back then.” Is that true? Maybe not. Who’s to say whether things are better or worse when they change. It’s just different. 10 years ago, these types of lineups were usually only seen at a Nike SB or Supreme release, maybe even a Jordan release, and now SB’s sit on Outlet shelves while Basketball shoes have people waiting out in the cold. Crazy. Who knows, maybe 10 years from now thousands of people will be lined up for a “limited” pair of Goadome’s or Air Max’s. Only time will tell.
