            Whites comprise of the majority of the population. ?It would only make sense that they receive welfare more than any other race. ?And your numbers are incorrect. ?Blacks comprise of 33% of welfare recipients (there are mixey numbers out there, most from opinionated people. ?You have to find the right source)

          1. Sneakerhead says:

  3. Mr. Rager says:

    And Nike really messed up by cancelling on line purchases. Everyone?went?to the stores to?purchases. what did they?expect… ?

  4. WE waited AND RAN AND WAITED AND THEN THEY TOLD US THAT NIKE STOPPED THE RELEASE?

  5. Jig says:

    What Nike is doing is really ridiculous the sneakers are hot but there should not be violence or riots over sneakers let’s b serious Nike Is adding to the violence and the government wont jump in because of course they pocket money off of this somehow its bs make more available stop doin this

  6. Jsofly503 says:

    That’s just it many ppls job is reselling kicks, or they think it is

  7. Gonz81283 says:

    I’m sorry but anyone who camps out for a week for some shoes is just a fuckin square.

  8. ColeWorldnMostDope says:

    right now its the same thing at dadeland mall in miami. people camping out for a week. and some stores raising prices to 600. my 2 hook ups couldnt even hook mde up. one can but is asking for 600. but watever. not getting them.

    1. Fuckmicheal says:

      thats not a hook up, when dood is raping you instead of said hook up, smh blacks

  9. Erok says:

    Ni**as need to flashmob the Nike Stores ASAP!!!!! …sounds ignorant but hey… the way nike is treating loyal consumers is wrong!!!

    1. Anonymous says:

      I’m not sure you comprehend what a flash mob is. ?I don’t think a random song and dance will do much for getting NIKE to change the way they handle limited releases…

      1. Erok says:

        Nah..in Philly its a smash and grab…but they start calling mass dancing flashmobs..google it and you get different definitions or go to youtube and type it and you get the same two choices

        1. Fuckmicheal says:

          Bud, it?doesn’t?sound ignorant, it is just that, very ignorant. ?Nike?isn’t?doing anything different to their ‘loyal consumers”. ?they as a business, keep raising the prices on the same shoes that they keep releasing over the past ten years. ?Said “loyal consumers” continue to buy them up in 12 minutes, instead of going to another shoe brand. ?Also, Black people continue to fight each other in the mall for them, cause riots, scream, hoot, holler, smell like coco butter and spend my tax money on nikes. ?Nike knows you damn monkeys want to keep buying (spending money the government hands you on the 1st and?Th, they should make a rap song about that!!!)?shoes to climb all over your grandmothers porch instead of moving out of that shit hole area you spooks live in, you spend the welfare check on crack, booze,?wife-beaters, rims and?Jordan?shoes, but shit, at least?Jordan?was black!!

      2. Erok says:

        Philly flash mob ..my bad

        1. Anonymous says:

          For sure, I got you. ?I just had a really funny mental image of some singing flash mob at a HOH or something lol.

          1. Peedipete44 says:

            Lmmmaaaooooo I had the same image lol that sounds better than the Philly flash lol

  10. Vaskboss says:

    nike, jordan ect. just needs to make the retros and huge anticipated sneakers like they do the air forces ?and produce tons of them to keep the shelves stocked, and the resellers will be no more the long lines will be no more and this crazy nonsense of people killing, robbing, breaking into stores ect. would be a past memory. nike should be held some what accountable for what happens, they create a media hype, the news gets involved by showing long lines ?and speak of the violence but they never stop and ask the BIG QUESTION of ?WHY DO THEY NOT MAKE ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE???????????? ?we go about the whole situation the wrong way, when you want to get a problem fixed you must stick together instead of fighting and killing for a shoe. ?if enough people put nike, jordan and all the other huge companies in the hot seat and ask and ask and ask why they keep doing these stupid limited releases when theirs so many people getting hurt in many ways.. use our forums to link our information together and make that a media event, all i can say is shame on nike, im a jordan buyer shame on him too, so i didnt make an attempt to get the foams nor any of the other all star weekend shoes because in order for me to get the dave whites i would have had to deal with pg plaza mall and we all seen how that is going lmao?

      Tupac said it best, everyones talks about the government needs to do this, and needs to do that, but the communities don’t gather, and start a revolution. Believe it or not is not, it’s no different w/ this sneaker shit. If people can over run a country like the Libyan Arab Republic then why can’t us Americans do it to a Corporation,( not take it over, but make our voices heard.) Why? Because no one stands up, all we do is talk.

    2. Skazike7 says:

      Ay bro, imma stop ya there… tis true that generally, popular brand shoes should be held “somewhat” accountable for limiting hyped shoe quantities, but remember to judge yourself before you judge others; did you ever think that brands hype up shoes on they own? Nah, we tend to set the firewood, like open-minded of shoes, and popular brands spark a flame with those shoes wit dif. CWs, and we fan the flame as a whole when we accept it, so supply n demand, depending on how many people hype a shoe brand, it’s type n colorway, and the limited addition note, it causes us (imma go ahead n add myself) to fight amongst each other for a material item, which brands put up their status and kind of shoe, along with a limited edition colorway. Basically, we need to weigh the predicaments more sufficiently, or you’ll continue to be blind to the truth. I like dese shoes too, but through anticipation, the hype leads to violence, so i’ll pass this as a lost cause. :/

    FCUK NIKE and retailers for causing this nonsense and high prices even at retail imo SMH

  12. SpaceAcexNYC says:

    Isn’t this post Way late? The week long line is old news

  13. Blue says:

    I never camp out for shoes online only

    nike needs to make shoes more?available?online?

    and the big shoe websites need to fix there?websites so they don’t crash??

  14. Johnnnyhansome says:

    nicekicks nike and house of hoops promote the bs

  15. President Ward says:

    These went harder then the air jordan 11 “concord” release…. Concords look way better tho… :-)

    1. Iswag says:

      U sound fucking stupid. There u go talking about another shoe u wish you had “concords” going harder then galaxy’s?? Uhm ok. Ura bitch,and fuk you and faggot ass smiley faces. Bitch ass boy

      1. NikeCanSuckMyDick says:

        you mad bro?

  16. Erok says:

    Ni**as got to get real….right now everyone’s screaming fuk nike until the next limited release….sneaker heads need to take six months off from coppin kicks..( i know … hard to do) but how do you make corporations buckle..by shortening their cash flow. But Nike is banking on our consumer ignorance and 99.9% of the time they cash out because when the next yeezy or foam comes out…the same silliness happens.

  17. Derpityderpderpderp says:

    unless you are or know a employee at house of hoops YOU AREN’T/WEREN’T GETTING THESE. Not sure what the malls were expecting probably should have done a better job with security, should have known that when thousands of people try to get something there is 10 of or nothing at all and it’s a bunch of rowdy kids problems might arise

  18. dammit manny says:

    Sad, all this violence over shoes. The worst part is it can be avoided. You would think that they would offer more shoes to get more money, instead they sell the shoes for a couple hundred dollars just for that person to turn around and sell them for 400. If Nike didn’t make some releases so limited they would be able to make extra 200 instead of the reseller. I understand the hype and trying to make things limited, but dont they see what they’re causing with their irresponsible practices? And they know they can get away with it, because on the next release, same shit is gonna happen.

  19. DugLast says:

    Copping a limited sneaker makes the score feel that much sweeter. There’s nothing wrong with that. The problem comes when folks who don’t really love this culture decide violence in the name of copping is cool. That’s the b.s. It’s not like exclusive sneakers are a new thing. Over-hyped releases and an out of control resale market are what’s new (and its killing us). Some releases are GRs and others are limited. If you love this culture, you understand that and know some releases will be out of reach.

  20. Guy with long paragraphs says:

    There’s nothing wrong with limited?availability what is wrong is how nike went about it by taking them offline which is?ridiculous?because now they put more money into the pockets of the ebay resellers. I think its cool and nostalgic that certain shoes are out for limited time only but it gets bad when people have to camp out for a week ,cut work and give up important things in life for a pair of fucking shoes. These stores need better security and should be held responsible not nike because then everyone will be complaining how everyone has the same shoe. Online availiablity+security at malls=success??
