wrong... OG shit is always worth more/more sought after than retros..
They are worth more, but no one gives a shit if they can buy the same sneakers for less. Throwing OG around don't mean shit unless it's certain that they will never release the color way again. The prices may go up and the chances to sell are slim so the nigga flippin the new shit is getting money a lot faster than you.
Haha, no one ever said anything about making money..
People who buy OG shit these days are collectors, not people trying to make profit.
You are right though about how to make a bigger and faster profit.
If i wanted to make money through sneakers, im not going to go and find someone selling og deadstock jordans, buy them at a crazy price, keep them on ice for even longer and sell them.
Instead, i would buy some retro'd Js for retail that just dropped, keep them on ice and sell them later.
And, you are definitely right about the demand for OG vs retros. There are very few true collectors these days compared to kids wanting fresh shit to rock and "collect".
Most people would want shoes that aren't deteriorating and won't fall apart when they wear them.
But as i originally said, OG stuff will always be worth more than retros.
