Let’s talk about it.
Waiting for sneakers to go on sale is the
oldest smartest trick in the book if you have patience.
It’s a little waiting game I’ve been playing since Nike started going retro crazy many moons ago. A shoe that comes to mind is the Gatorade Total Max Uptempo. I remember patiently waiting for Foot Locker to drop the $160 price tag, and it took forever.
Eventually the shoe went to Nike Outlets for $45-50 (I can’t remember the exact price) and for whatever I didn’t grab a pair. I still don’t know why I didn’t cop, but I still want a pair. My point is that I’ve been playing this game for years when it comes to waiting for prices to drop.
Most recently I feel I’ve been pretty vocal on here about wanting Volt Talarias. I refused to pay $175 for the NikeLab pair, and I didn’t wait to pay $140 for the ’16 version. I just knew in my gut that enough people weren’t checking for Talarias, so I was confident they would go on sale. They did.
However, we know it’s a science to the art of waiting. You can’t wait for price drops with every pair because the demand and quantity is different for each pair.
That said, let’s discuss this topic in the comments as I’m sure everyone has something to say.
