If you're wondering why Nike cancelled Saturday's release of the hotly-anticipated Air Jordan 1 Retro "Chicago" sneakers, it could be that the stores ran out of supplies.
According to Complex magazine, 2 online (Instagram) resellers mysteriously got their hands on a bunch of pairs of the most anticipated Air Jordan release in history.
Okay, that's a stretch. But, according to Complex, the Jordan 1s "Chicago" release could be the "year's biggest Air Jordan drops thus far." Bigger even than the release of Kanye West's Yeezy's.
Thanks to Nike Store's last-minute cancelation, Saturday's Air Jordan 1 "Chicago" release was met with even more hype than originally expected. While many 'heads struggled to lock down even one pair, it looks like the resellers are the ones who came out on top last #Sadderday.
We spotted these two stockpiles on Instagram, which are just a few of the many reseller hauls from one of the year's biggest Air Jordan drops thus far.
Instagram user @fezkickzny posted a picture with his secured pairs stating, "Some ppl will always just be salty telling me to get a real job, career etc. but why when I make more then certain ppls jobs and careers." While secondary-market store Padded Room, located in Chicago of all places, showed off a full stock wall.
Both of these images have over 60 pairs pictured, and with the current after market price hovering around $500, it's safe to say these guys are looking at some serious profit.
Complex says Nike plans to release the sneakers sometime in August, when the excitement to be first with the 1s reaches a fever pitch.
