The recent GOAT and Flight Club merger rocked the street wear world. It has brought mainstream and the business news media attention on street wear. Together with the rise of the secondary shoe market, limited release of Nikeís Jordan brand and Adidas, high end designers and culture taste makers including Kanyeís Yeezy, and street wear behemoths like Supreme and risers like Kith what is happening is that street wear couture is becoming mainstream.
This month and weekend in particular, partially due to the NBA All Star Game being in Los Angeles, the large new drop of rare and limited release of sneakers has collectors and re-sellers salivating. Consider Adidasí 747 Warehouse experience. Exclusive shoes dropped, music performances by N.E.R.D and 21 Savage. Basketball game between the team of Snoop and the team of 2 Chains.
Not to be outdone this month alone Nike dropped Black History Month Jordanís, two different Chinese New Year Jordanís, Black Cement and White Air Jordan IIIís, and Paul Georgeís PlayStation inspired shoes to name a few. Most of these have sold out and some now commanding almost three times the retail price on sites such as Stockx.com.
Wow! Amazing collab with @PlayStation and @Nike! I wanna thank the both of you for your part in this creation! Thanks to my guy @t_hardmn for your hard work and help on yet another killer shoe.. Truly enjoy your partnership bro! Super excited for you guys to get a hold of the #PG2 and experience the evolution of my signatures! #PillowsOnTheFeet
