can't believe those prices tho, im not one to complain about spending, it doesnt bother me, but those authentics. You can get some REALLY nice Vans for half that.
same can be said about their new era's? or camp's? or dam near everything else they have can be copped by another brand for half price sometimes the other brands quality is just as good... i think theres always gonna be a cheaper version of anything high end you want to buy, but to some of us that downgrade is unaceptable for many reasons..
going off topic: same can be said about retro Jordan's or Foampos'. anything thats limited and exclusive but still heat will have high re-sale which in effect marks up the retail... the first 5 pairs of foam's i copped were $160 retail. then niggas started reselling, past 10 joints that dropped were 200+ retail.. cray cray
