What's A Sneaker You're Glad You Got For Retail Price?

A discussion worth having because we all have a story.

The homie Rolo aka dunksrnice shared this photo of blue Supreme Nike SB Dunk Highs that he got for retail. That was a long time ago, and even back then coppin Supreme Nike collaborations wasn't easy.

Around the same time when Supreme released these Dunks, the 1st Game Air Zoom Generations dropped. That was my first time getting scammed on eBay. This was so long ago I didn't have PayPal yet - I sent a money order.

I "copped" 1st Game AZGs off eBay, but they never showed up. I remember eyeing the blue Supreme Dunks too, but I couldn't afford both pairs. It turns out I should've sent the money order to a Supreme Dunk reseller.

That said, it's crazy to see this pair with the original Supreme New York receipt. The retail price was $178 ($198 after tax), and this was way back in 2003. November 1, 2003 to be exact. The last blue pair to sell at Flight Club went for $1800.

I know Rolo is glad he got his pair for retail. Ha!

So, what's a sneaker you're glad you were able to cop for retail?

The Air Trainer SC High 'Atlanta '96 Olympics'. Living in Georgia my whole life, and my dad being security during the Olympics, these were going to be a must cop either way.

I would say it’s a tie between my Net/Net Air Yeezys and my Air Max 1 DJ Clark Kent 112 pack joints.
