Nike Go Flyease

Ah yeah, I've seen these. Sucks that hype & resellers drive the price so high up making it harder for some people with disabilities to get this shoe for a reasonable price. Also I though the person was talking about some Nike slides that incorporated the same function as the post.

Sucks that Nike makes them in limited quantities intentionally to create hype.

Thank you 🙏 Don't want to "defend" resellers here but Nike are the real culprits and they know exactly what they're doing.

So much hype that I've never heard of them.... I can't help but think that more manufacturing and sells would have fixed that problem.

That’s what I don’t get about the Nike limited release hype shit, they sell them for $200+ but only get to sell a relative few. Wouldn’t they be able to make more money if they just released them like normal shoes? The only people that win in this situation are resellers

Every business/store is just a reseller tho.

u/3X01 Jun 19 '21

There's a difference between footlocker ordering 300 pairs and managing to sell them at a lower price than buying directly from Nike and some dude with a bot buying two or three sets of Retro 1's and then selling them on StockX for $500+

u/Living_Bear_2139 Jun 19 '21

Yeah. I know. It’s capitalism all the way down/up tho.

u/ScumHimself Jun 19 '21

You’re getting downvoted but you’re not work, this is peak capitalism. Capitalism is the problem.

u/ExpertOpposite Jun 19 '21

then why make them inaccessible by intentionally reducing quantity

u/PoorlyTimedPun Jun 19 '21

Flyease aren’t fucking slides wtf is with this post. Half people talking about one thing and the other half acting like a completely different shoe is the subject.

Please keep in mind; not everything is made for people without disabilities.

If you see a product and think "why don't they just [do the thing the product is meant to help with]?" Then it was probably made for people with disabilities so they can do these actions.

(Think about the ridiculous kitchen gadgets ads. Most of these gadgets are meant for disabled people, so they can cook without assistance)

u/IANALbutIAMAcat Jun 19 '21

Right?? I saw these and immediately wanted to get some for my disabled mother but idk about $350 for shoes I’m not sure would work for her.

I’m also kinda poor but like lots of disabled people are poor.

Edit: looks like they were even more expensive when they were newer. Like $1000

u/lexm Jun 19 '21

Might as well make your own.

u/DaggerMoth Jun 19 '21

Luckily there are other shoes that do the same thing.

u/PoorlyTimedPun Jun 19 '21

Yeah wtf, that shit is completely different. Thought to be fair it seems cool but it’s actually retarded because slides fucking slide on, the feature would get used once unless you wanna manually take your slides off everytime.
