Expect the unexpected...

Got my Unfuturas @ GDFT no hassle, no lineups, no drama. If only other releases could be this way but then there would be no hypebeast.

how much are the space tigers and lobsters? also, if i hit up G' next weekend, will any be left? looking for sz10.5-11...
August 31, 2008 @ 21:37:44
If memory serves me correctly Spacetiger $130+tax and Lobster $150+tax.

Lobsters are growing on me. Maybe if they don't get eaten up next weekend I'll cop.
August 31, 2008 @ 22:00:33
mmmm alright thanks a lot gov, i'll probably cop the lobsters, but just ebay the space tigers cuz it's cheaper to do so...

I managed to get a size 9.5, bthere was a crowd in the shop waiting for the shipment one of my friends told me whose cool with the gdft crew so basically when they put it out everything was gone since there was a busy crowd waiting in the shop. goodfoot yorkville hardly got a few pairs which are releasing tomorrow there's really no point since most of the stock dropped at the richmond location with that crowd, it was $150.00 and 1 per person.


You can't be serious. I guess the days of being able to cop nice shoes with no hassles are pretty much over.

I love the days when i would see a shoe and wait for it to go on sale....and then cop. Like 4-5 years ago when footlocker had the ugly duckling pack, they couldn't give them sh1ts away, i bought mine on sale for $60. Now I see these things going for $200+ used.

Anyways, I guess that's just the nature of the business.

Those were the pre-'99 days which are long gone. Post-Tiffany it has been like this.

It just depends if the masses like what you do as well then you either have to rely on connections or accept the marked up price. But if you really want a shoe that bad you'll figure a way otherwise it's off to the next sneaker for me.
September 01, 2008 @ 12:47:48
I walked into Underworld at 4pm on the day of the Tiffany release and was able to cop my pair.
September 01, 2008 @ 14:51:48
^Lucky you.

GDFT TO Tiff lineup was over 100 deep with the line starting around 5am. SMH now dudes camp day(s) before.
September 01, 2008 @ 17:20:24
They're all sneaky when it comes down to it...F&F, right-from-the-truck releases, changes in prices...FYI - LS had em for $130, Vault for $120, and GF for , gasp $150! All prices b/f txs...

well the argument about the price I can agree with but to call the release "sneaky" when their past drops have been during the week basically when their shipment comes in is unfair.

yep if there's some sort of hype to the shoe you got to lineup here no matter which store has it. I miss those days you can just walk in and leave anything pre 2003.

Its sneaky when somehow people know enough to hang out at the store as its being unloaded - that sound fair? How many knew via the staff? Sure they've had drops during the week, but also had drops on Sats, ala in the past and other stores...
September 01, 2008 @ 23:34:32
screw goodfoot...i called everyday last week to find out when they were releasing the infrareds and everyday they would tell me tomorrow...i even called on the day that they "dropped" them at about 5pm and they said their gonna release tomorrow...goodfoot is gonna go down as fast as they came up if they dont put a bit of focus on customer service...hell you can walk into a goodfoot store without any of the employees saying a word to you...they think their better than you or something when really your paying their wage...i shouldnt generallize and say that all the staff are like that...im sure theirs a few good peeps out there but it only takes one or two bad ones to screw everything up...goodfoot is not a monopoly for sneakers anymore...they need to realize that...

just my piece of mind...im sure some of you would agree.

agreed... but as long as they keep selling what people want... they will continue to draw in customers... I hardly ever buy anything there cuz I can get it elsewhere.

all I really see is probably someone who was mad they couldn't make it down and get their pair while being beat out by others. from the stories I heard and from what I read on other forums it was just people being in the store at the right time. people were going by the shop during the day asking when the shoes were coming out and employees said a shipment is coming in today so people started waiting in the shop from the afternoon. the shoes came in and the crowd of people waiting in the shop for the afternoon got their pairs, they didn't get much I think it was 25 or 27 pairs. nothing was held and none of their "regular customers" got or so the guy working there told me, they kept 3 for the bay location which went in the morning. I live like 3 blocks from the shop so right when I saw it posted here I just went over and was lucky to get mine. I keep up with all the shops and their releases and this is no different than previous goodfoot releases in the past few months the only difference is everyone and their mama wanted the shoe they didn't get a lot and a big group of people made a smart move and waited.

the only gripe if any that I had was them charging 150 but I really can't complain since places in the usa are asking for 200-250 which is the same asking price on egay I'm not the one to stress over 20 bones.
September 02, 2008 @ 05:31:03
chemist is right. it is what it is.
you didn't get what you were after, so you're mad. believe me i know.
bitching about it doesn't help because it's not like GF gives a rip about their rep anyway. thats not changing.
buy somewhere else then. pay a little more to get what you want if its that damn important. GF sold their stuff, they don't care about you. get over it.

I'm a few blocks away from the bay location so i got up off my backside at around 5:30PM and headed down there....only to be told that the Richmond location was going to drop the kicks on Saturday. I wasn't too pleased when I got home and found out they had already dropped. I actually wanted them to wear and not to resell.

As far as the price, no surprise here. GDFT's notorious for pricing their stuff higher. I'm not mad at that as folk will buy the stuff anyways.

If you have other priorities (9-5, kids, life, etc) you're not copping hyped kicks cuz most folk aren't going to camp DAYS in advance for some sneakers.

Anyways, it is what it is...in the grand scheme of things it's no big deal.

I'm guessing this saturday since it's dropping on the 4th in the US.
September 02, 2008 @ 10:58:12
I think this or next saturday they usually drop around the main supreme release in the states.

Agreed Cliff. Some of us have other priorities and this is lower on the totem pole...also agree with Chem and Del on their comments; 'cept not all of us live 5 min away, hence it woulda been nice for those of us further away or dealing with other things at the moment to have a better shot at the goods...

In the end yeah, GF will still sell specifics no matter what, to whomever, whenever - and timing is everything, so be it....Who mad, whos bitchin? Not me...I still copped, even with all the bad 411 leading up to the drop - but I do feel bad for those who tried and tried but got hung out...
September 02, 2008 @ 12:59:32
SMH, they're doing what they do
ain't a damn thing changed since day 1

sucks to you if you missed out, but there are alternatives if you feel that bad about it.
just keep it moving
September 02, 2008 @ 13:33:11
naw man it hasnt been like that since day 1...back when skam used to run things - when goodfoot was pretty much the only sneaker store in toronto - goodfoot was a dope spot and the people were chill and friendly...its all the new people that brought the 'too cool' attitude. also since martin left ransom they've gone downhill too.

but enough about that...like you said lets keep this moving.

are you really going there to make friends or buy a pair of shoes?
September 02, 2008 @ 14:33:38
Agreed with Chemist. Just stick with the fact, will you guys be complaining if a pair of random vans drop during the week, but sold out before you can make it there? Also, if GF did made the announcement before the release. You guys will probably be complaining about people lining up at 5 in the morning. So all and all, it's just how u look at it.

No doubt, i don't know what i'd do if I was coming from far out. The staff was telling me that people were PISSED when they found out the shoes were releasing on Saturday. Wonder how they felt when they found out that they actually dropped on the friday. LOL!

Word...good thing for other shops carrying the same joints...Good CS is hard to get nowadays...
September 02, 2008 @ 15:59:13
alright i know the two possible dates for the supreme drop. any confirm date? i don't wanna mission twice from loo. please help.

thanks.
September 02, 2008 @ 18:39:46
What pisses me off is that they give us the whole "We'll post it up ahead of time" bullshit and then do a 180 and post that they dropped already. WTF is that? Hats off to Livestock for not playing games like lil bitches.

As for customer service, the only dude that you cannot drag around with regards to bad cs is Matt...and the ladies are alright.

Professio, don't you work at GDFT?
