And these are my well loved pair of limited Paris Marathon edition Onitsuka Tiger. Got this while I was holidaying in Australia about 5 years ago at an outlet store at a discount. Last piece and it was in my size. I’ve been trying to use it as sparingly as I can in order to prolong its life.

And yeah, it probably needs a cleaning.







This is sexy. Maybe you can ask a professional to clean it so as to extend its life?



This is mine. Custom GSM.

Only if you blindly follow the hypebeasts. Plenty of good kicks out there on retail or discount.

There are tons of good kicks out there that arent hype.

Ultraboost can get >$150 during discount. No longer hype.

New balance got mani nice kicks, 247, etc also reasonable price. Adidas tennis hu also cheap and good. No hype coz no boost.

Hype drives sneaker game. But certain hype shoes that you genuinely liked then juz hoot it. Dont buy for hype. If you cant sell certain pairs, juz rock them. Simple.

unless you have that need to wear the same kicks as everyone else, my advice is to simply wait it out. Kicks are not like other commodities such as watches; you keep it in the box over time it will yellow or disintegrate. Resellers can only hold on to the stock for so long before they will become desperate to get rid of it. Also at the rate of releases nowadays, the local resellers do not have such financial power to hold on to existing stocks and yet come up with money to sweep the new "hype" releases. So you will always see them selling with little or no markup after a short while.

Totally agree.

Resellers can only hold on to the stock for so long. So either they discount or see their cash burn away.

Unless I really really like a pair, I’ll wait.

yup..
and they like to compare their prices to stockx.

i remember when i wanted the jordans 4 levis.

got 1 seller trying to sell at $550 neg whereby stockx price is dropping like crazy.
i offer him $450 (as stockx prices hover between $460-$480) and he went ballistic on me. saying i low ball he only earn like $20 if he sell me that price. lucky for me, i manage to find another seller sell me lower than $450.

in the end, he lower his price to $450, still got the cheek to ask me still want or not.

I had a similar situation with a reseller on carousell too. Seller started asking me if it was a trust issue, blah blah blah.

Any seller who does not entertain questions is a red flag for me. I don’t deal with idiots.

no real point collecting based on hype since the price always rabak for the early adopters who can only get from resellers

these shoes keep in collection 4~5 years later if midsole never detach the hard plastic hardware also will start to go brittle and break off

life's short, wear and be happy lol
