The Sneaker Stock Market – Ups and downs of sneaker Buying Holding and Traders

We go again,

Inn the years I’ve spent coveting sneakers. Let’s call it 20 years. I have grown to understand some of the faces you will come across, well characters, whom you can spot a mile off in their fits, people are what they wear for the most part. When it comes to sneaker cops and drops they are almost a literal incarnation of the description I’m going to put across.

Hype Beast

We all know about being a hype beast and fiening for a good drop from a highly coveted designer but I’ve noticed people get confused with Hypebeast – hypebeast is a term for entry level consumers just getting into fashion or more commonly someone that’s into all the highly coveted pieces for Jawn, fit checks flexing & other IG like purposes.

Botmen

The people who ruin drops for us normal people but if you have a bot sincerely i HATE YOU. I am here to buy a couple cool things that are to my taste and here they come rinsing everything out to resell. Hate that & them. Till I get a bot and become one of the bot men.

There’s no way the average person can get a drop because of these guys now. They hack ever drop

Flexers

Them man there and the celebrities that will spend whatever money they can on garms just to look desirable, because that’s what they do to grab the youngers attention.

They try it the youngers buy it, it’s like promo on steroids it’s what got the Milano skate brand off the ground for ASAP Ant who doesn’t skate a lick. Same with Kith and Supreme

Editors

these guys will paint cut strip and customise the clothes to their own liking making them originators they are my personal favourite type of people they even keep the AF1 alive and give free promo to any company there is out there because of what they do, like I said they keep the AF1 alive.

Tried to manipulate the Yeezy but it’s hard to paint on that fabric which is why the AF1 is a classic. Because of them. Salut.


banter aside, I have to talk about hype jackets because these people aren’t in it for the love they’re in it for a different game.

Hype jacking would be seeing people are into these things and buying only to resell and flip for an extortionate price. These guys most of the times are just kids, newly into fashion and just want to fit in somewhere. Look like their favourite rapper and consumed with the flex. And here you are swiping garments from under them not because you like the designer – which is not something you can say about these young bucks, knowing a designer is key to them. – but because you see what is selling and you want to cash in and cash out on the culture. Please have some respect and leave these kids alone, I’m not necessarily a purist but I do just love the game and am welcoming to all parties. The trash some people get up to I just can’t jive with.

A Thought On: Storytelling in the CLOT X Terracotta Jordan 13s REVIEW – The Power of Stories and the quality of creativity

We go again,

Just saw these, thought they were amazing and deeped the concept and just loved it design application aside this is a real good concept with storytelling in pictures giving off a quality feel. If the oldest recorded history had sneakers they’d wear Jordan’s 😂😂, I’m literally laughing.

But that’s joy, me when I was 8-15 the history buff that I was this would have added to my story of where I am now. – In design, telling great stories; creating exceptional product – my 12 year old self would have loved the socks off of this Jordan, would have inevitably be the Jordan that would be my first.

Why do I say all of this because I’m my mo sneakers no stories I spoke greatly about the lack of stories and how that impacts the sale of sneakers, telling great stories (like songs) induces great ideas in young minds worthy of exploring. Once more the quality of the product almost comes secondary to the story told and association it holds. I’m in love with ancient history and things told before records were kept, have been enamoured with it for decades. Me as a kid who loved the Mummy films and knew much about the terracotta warriors would be immediately taken at 8 and now in my 20’s. Why? Because the weight of the association it holds is heavy and if in any form I can be part of that story I will.

This is a call to great designers and storytellers to work hand in hand on briefs to create product that speak to the imagination of the youth and adults. I right now am digging deep to find an outfit worthy of rocking the Terracotta 13’s all because of the story and nary because of the design.
