Random Rants by @WeaverTheGreat

1. If there’s one thing that bugs me it’s how the internet sneaker community, especially on Twitter, can whip themselves into a frenzy over nothing more substantial than some loose talk on a forum. Hypebeasts everywhere are rejoicing at the mere suggestion of a Supreme foamposite. Until I see a sample I won’t believe it. If it is in fact real, I hope it looks as bad as the picture below and sells out in 9 seconds.

so much hype, so few facts

2. The Lebron X “Witness” championship pack will apparently be priced at $500 and only 560 will be available. I have only one thing to say, good luck! I’ll settle for one of the hats.

3. Nike are attempting to curb the use of bots on nike.com, good for them. With the current release procedures auto scripting bots have almost become the norm but the problem remains the way that Nike themselves launches their products, not the solutions that disillusioned buyers turn to. My fear is that legitimate bot free orders will be cancelled too. Just bring back FCFS, it works here in Europe.

4. After a weekend in Amsterdam a few things are clear to me. Firstly, I can’t party like a 20 year old anymore! And secondly, in Europe running shoes really are king. The streets of Amsterdam were overrun with New Balance’s, so much so that I walked into footlocker and found a full size range of the All Star and BHM Lebron X’s on shelves. And in the small Nike store i managed to find Cool Grey 9s, Grape Vs and more were all sitting with 30% off.

5. Also in Amsterdam, the hype is real!

That’s all from me for now, stick with MidwestSole for the latest news.
