I’ve said this for many years, but I have to say it again: sneaker prices are out of control right now. Thanks to the new “culture” of being a sneaker head companies like Nike are rolling in the loot right now. Not only are they producing all sorts of overpriced “swag” they have created a whole industry around re-releasing retro sneakers (at lower quality might I add) and jacking up the prices.
It should be no surprise that after the success of the Lebron 9 that the price of the Lebron X would be insane. But $270?!! The shoes better instantly make your vertical jump higher. Not even NBA players are taking that lightly.
