Nike Dunk Lows continue to be the hottest silhouette from the Swoosh out in these streets, but would you brave severe weather just to cop the latest pair? These heads would.
On Tuesday (Jan. 17), Nike released the highly anticipated “Montreal Bagel” Nike Dunk Low, and to ensure they’d get a pair, a few resellers in Montreal, MN lined up outside a sneaker spot during a snowstorm because sneakers are indeed life, and getting a small profit on the secondary market is apparently more important than your well-being.
This is what the sneaker game looked like before stores began raffling their products in place of the first come first served method.
Though the Dunks with the sesame seed print on the base sold out instantly, resale prices aren’t worth risking pneumonia as they’re going for around $20-$40 over the sneaker’s retail price of $120.
We’d understand if these were some Travis Scott or Off-White Dunks which could easily fetch you anywhere from $400-$1000 over retail, but braving a snowstorm for gas money isn’t the move, b. Just sayin.’
Though the Nike Dunk continues to be the most popular silhouette in the game today, resale prices for them have plummeted due to over saturation. Unless it’s a special edition or a collaborative release, à la Concepts “Lobster” Dunks, making a big profit on a regular Dunk drop isn’t what it used to be. But hey, if you wanna make some extra train fare, by all means go catch a cold if you want.
