Resellers Gone Wild: Whose Plug Is This?

Sneaker reseller with record breaking amount of Yeezys.

Oh how the shoe game has changed!

I don't have much to say besides this is unbelievable. All legit pairs or is this a UA party? Honestly, who knows? The photo is crazy, and I didn't try to count the pairs. It's A LOT!

I have two questions: 1) How does this photo make you feel, and 2) whose plug is this?

Let's discuss in the comments.

There's one thing that doesn't add up about this photo. It makes me want to immediately guess UA but the UA's on a release usually aren't the closer 1:1's. That takes a few weeks, maybe a month if the shoe is a slower sell and 3-4 versions or so. It all leaves me a little confused.

-So there is somewhere between 180-200 pair in this picture. -Assuming these are the greode and assuming he paid retail he’s $55k - $60k (+ tax) deep in this haul. If he paid under retail his connect is in even bigger trouble. -On StockX we see an average of a 10% premium on the geode across all sizes. We’ll be gracious and say he has a $35 margin potential on each pair. -the problem is that unless he’s literally selling these out of the back of that rented I haul... he’s gotta use a reseller platform to unload that many units. Even with a top tier seller level, with all fees considered he’s dealing with a 10% transaction cost which is identical to his margin.

  • this cat’s gonna be lucky if he breaks even on that $55k-$60k chunk he shelled out AND his connect will likely lose their Yeezy account. -“hustling” isn’t so great when you hustle your way into s loss. There are definitely better ways to turn that much scratch into a profit.

I actually feel indifferent about this photo and I mean if this dude is getting money props to him. I will say I never understand why this generation puts all their business on front street like this. It’s never been cool to snitch especially not on yourself. Which leads me to answering your second question. Not sure who his plug is but somebody will eventually get in trouble.
