if they end up getting it, any idea how much the varsity is gonna cost?
September 02, 2008 @ 20:04:24
^Something like 100 bucks or so more than in nyc.
September 02, 2008 @ 20:41:35
bro for the last time there will probably only be 1-3 days of notice


damn, alright thanks. looks like its all a waiting game
September 02, 2008 @ 21:11:12
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.


x 10000.

Livestock has never fucked around on a release.

I told you guys not to hold your breath with regards to getting your pair from Goodfoot.

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?


LOL! Yeah, their post was like an eternity late - when it hit, most/all were already sold off da truck! Why bother posting in these cases...

1. People called everyday to see when theywere coming out - They complained when they weren't in yet.
2. People complained that they didn't have enough notice
3. People would've complained if they dropped on a Saturday and didn't bother to line up.
4. and now, people still complaing because they didn't get a pair and blame it on bad CS. Yes, it's the worlds fault that ya'll weren't ready. People chilled all day and knew when hey were coming, it's not their fault they were ahead of the curve.

I don't understand why people are getting so worked up over a pair of shoes. If you really want them that much, just pay the resell value for them? If not, then there will be plenty more shoes in the future.
September 03, 2008 @ 13:36:05
It seems like there are 2 extremes here. Those who can't stand Goodfoot no matter what, and others who have an undying allegiance to Goodfoot no matter what.

You can't have a discussion without someone from either group showing up. In a perfect world GF coulda handled things better, but they didn't. No big deal really. I CAN see how some folk would be salty about the whole thing.

It is funny though, if you say something negative about mighty GF the way some people react. It's almost like you hurt their feelings or something.

At the end of the day GF has been and will keep holding it down. Fix ya panties.
September 03, 2008 @ 14:49:45
but it is bad CS when you say "oh this is dropping in DAYS". three weeks go by & no one from GF says squat, not even "uh something is messed up, let you know when info rolls in". THEN whatever everyone was waiting on ends up sold out before anyone holding their breath on it has heard about it. Yea, thats dropping the ball on alot of diehard people wanting to spend money on you.
Lucky enough you had others to pick up the slack & sell out.

I guess what GF people are trying to say, is you want stuff? Go to their store & constantly ask when shipment is coming in. If they tell you the day, come back & just sit there & stare at them all day long waiting for your sought after item to arrive. because how else are you going to get it?

this time around its pretty weak sauce to blame it on people's preconceived ideas on the store. but whatever miscommunication that happened around the infrareds, the problem is not people bitching because they already bitch about you. something got F'd, own up to it & make it right next time or better.
September 03, 2008 @ 15:00:45
Fuck, make all the drops in the middle of the week, not the weekend. All the little school fuckers would have to camp out on a school night>smh


That works for me lol.
September 03, 2008 @ 15:12:34
I've been able to cop some stuff from GDFT that I couldn't get elsewhere in Canada but at the same time I've missed stuff too whether it be miscommunication or misinformation. Regardless if they bring in stuff I need/want then I'll be right there pending availability. I just keep it moving on to the next cop etc.

What's great about TO nowadays is that there's choices, options. If one store don't have what you need another will. But I do feel bad for those who waited out and skipped LS' drop to cop from GDFT only to find out their stock was less than 1/3 of LS'. One thing to keep in mind is when opportunity presents itself one has to seize the moment.

I got to stop you there, that point is wrong maybe it's just the way your wording it but the way your making it sound is that it's the people's fault like they should have known when the shoes were coming in or releasing. from what one of the guys working there told me is that people were coming in the store daily asking about the shoe and that day last friday the same thing happened but instead of the response being "soon" or "a couple of days" they mentioned it should be coming in that day. so that group of people started to wait in the store while word got out and by time the shoes came in it most pairs were gone.

I also know that same guy I spoke to said they didn't have any idea of when the shoes were coming in they were originally told monday but from then on it was just as much of a guessing game for them as it was the customers.

You mean all the people who work shit retail hours? I work full time and love Saturday drops.
September 03, 2008 @ 20:27:13
Even if I have work, and if it's something I really want, I'll call in sick for it. And if I don't do that, I guess I'd just have to pay resell for it wouldn't I?
I think people should just stop complaining that they didn't get their pair for retail...

Not only do you have to lineup, pay for the shoe, lose a days pay, but you're also jeopardizing your source of income? I dunno but don't seem worth it to me. Might as well pay reseller prices since you'd lose more money skipping work.
September 03, 2008 @ 22:02:07
Another good ol GDFT debacle (however its spelled) ..............

You customers should be thankfull people even work at these shops.
I know i couldnt , ive been there several of times (waiting for the truck to
unload of course) and all of a sudden 5-10 people all come in at once
screaming and yelling "oh oh bod bod , how much fe dis" "Yo this is an SB yo"
touching and moving everything around making a mess and NOT buying
anything , those are the people who ruin it for everybody else.

I wouldnt bother helping "customers" out either if they acted like this
80% of the time. In 2 years most of you wont even care about sneakers any
way , then ish can go back to like it was 15 years ago. I cant wait till my
facial hair turns grey , but i still wont be wearing no SKinny jeans , cause my
knots wont fit ......... thats why.

Eh, well I'm just a uni student working a part time job, so if I lose this job I can always find another one xP But for those of you working real jobs, I can understand that it's a bit more difficult to find time off just to go queue in line just for a pair of shoes.

I don't really care about this CS issue, but whwat you posted is not an excuse for crappy CS. You're in retail, that stuff comes with the territory. I'm sure folk at McD's deal with azzes all day, that doesn't give them a pass to get stink with me.
September 04, 2008 @ 13:13:15
But you could spit in someones burger, not really the same with shoes.

All retail from what I've experience, you get the same attitude back that you present to them. People around my area get cussed out by McDonalds employees if they are jerks. I've seen people on the brink of jumping over counters.

You hit the nail on the head. You get back what you give ........... thats
100% right in almost every situation in life.

Cliff_ It wasnt an excuse it was a reason to as why they might act a
certain way. You may not know that people come in and act like that so
i thought that by maybe giving an example you would see the reasoning
behind it.......... But at the end of the day your going to a sneaker store
where workers arnt much older than 20 or so , so its some what expected.

Its not like your going to Le Swiss to buy a 20k watch or to a Benz dealership.

Lol yeah...
Also, from what people always complain about how they get bad CS and what not, I've never ever experienced anything bad from them. Most of the times, the guys working there say "hi what's up" or something along those lines, and sometimes they don't. Even when they don't I don't see it as a bad thing, I'm just in there to look at some sneakers, and I don't need the guys working there to talk to me. If I want something, I just ask them.
Even with that being said, if I wanna strike up a convo with one of the guys it's not that hard either, just go up to them and say "hey, what's up", is it really that hard to say "hi" first?

^ Yup, and that's the same way I go about going into any of these shops we have here so I don't get where the bad cs rep comes from. but everyone's different i'm guessing people want to he hounded down and followed or they feel if they don't get a hi or a look that isn't a smile it automatically means they're better than you....which I think is stupid.
September 04, 2008 @ 18:59:27
wow...if no one has mentioned this already. the gdft st. clair (hoodfoot) is dissapointing...nothing i'd wanna buy shoewise smh
they need some sorta new stock shipment up there
September 04, 2008 @ 19:00:16
is it just me or does this feel like we've already had this long discussion about what really is bad customer service and is it really bad customer service from gf or just people who are picky and maybe needs to go back to shopping at malls where the employees follow you around the whole store
September 04, 2008 @ 19:51:22
I personally could give a fuck about customer service, I don't expect anything from them. What I expect is service when I ask for it. That's good enough for me. In and out with what I want.

I don't care for that infared drop or whatever, but I do agree from what I read that the drop was handled poorly. And if you're an employee of goodfoot and are defending how that was done, you're being ridiculous. It was more than obvious a large amount of people were waiting for these sneakers from the sheer amount of calls and posts on this message board about them. So to provide innaccurate information about the drop, and THEN getting the shipment randomly and instead of holding on to them and setting a release date, you end up selling it off the truck. That was folly. Not exactly showing the customers that you give a shit about them. I don't have any loyalties to either store, but livestock shitted on you for doing it right.

I know i'd be pissed if it was something that I was waiting on and to find out with little to no notice it was dropped.

whatever though, it's their business and they'll do it however they see fit.
September 04, 2008 @ 21:18:50
Hahahaha so much hostility

Anyways, anyone hear a definite word on when the Preme drop is?
September 04, 2008 @ 21:45:23
