Listen: Travis Travis Scott, Mike, JOE discussed on Le Batard & Friends - Mystery Crate
"I'd say my early early twenties and I'd go on finish line and just see what's on sale and I just get shoes that I thought like pop that I liked and I'm like you know what sixty bucks for a pair of shoes. Not a big deal but now I see it as like a two hundred dollars shoes and I regret some of the shoes that I bought because again I only wear like four or five pairs of shoes like I have a pair of Adidas that rugged Dida Superstars that are almost like peacock looking in print and then the stripes or like dislike light green thing that I bought a store that was closing. These are pretty cool looking shoes right. I didn't even realize I bought them that. They glow in the dark so that was an added level that I didn't realize that I had on those shoes but I never wear those shoes any more like. I wore them like two ties. We're just sitting in a closet somewhere there that parts and that's the other thing is I try and make sure that it is a steady rotation like again if I bought them I want to use them and I want to wear them and so I feel like for the most part. I've done a pretty good job of spreading them out. I will say like I have so in my house. I have a room upstairs. That was just kind of like a little access extra room like it wasn't big enough to be a bedroom it's small I don't use it for much and so I have all my sneakers all the boxes. I buy a ton of stuff from the container store. And they're so so they've all got their own like plastic container with a little drop down front and so I keep those all in that room but downstairs. I have this random chest that was part of something gals that I just used for storage and that's all the day to day ones in there so it's got like the sock looking Adidas. MD's in their the the Nike airmax airmax twos which may be the most comfortable shoes I own. I saw Lebron James Wearing the university gold ones on an episode of the shop. And because I am a sucker for marketing I was like. Oh Oh those. Look cool on the Brian James they will in turn make me look cool and now that the shoes that I wear when I walked into polling every day. Do you have the pair that you're like. I don't know why bought these. He's because I have one draft print converse all stars. I don't know why Boston yeah. I've worn them a couple times out but I realize I can't really wear these with anything. The high tops. They're not low tops their high top converse all stars giraffe print. I have I have a whole theory. Go Joe that billy is so made for this game because I'm so old school I have to match the shoes that I'm wearing with an outfit whereas really that's not hip billy doesn't give a shit about matching anything so I'm shocked. He actually owns a pair of shoes. That's hard for for him to match with anything and bring himself to where he's got such a allowed taste said he is so made for this shoe game sunny for the problem really aside from from the fact that the giraffe print is just like Congress like Chuck Taylors for me. Aren't comfortable so like I know that. They had like a little bit of resurgence where people like wear them out. I just don't find uncomfortable with like how modern sneakers because there's no support so I I forget if it was the the all stars or another. There's a brand converse that they it might have been in like the Chuck All Star twos or something. They came out with they did. They did a different soul in their padded. Yeah and they're stupid comfy. So maybe if you're looking bill now I'm interested like I want to know what it's GonNa take to get you to come into the game with us because it feels like you're waiting around in the wings right now for a reason to common now. I'm like I'm trying trying to think here with Mike. Of what the way we bring you back into this in this game. Pass me by out of this game. I'm retired. I think you know what it is. Go Joe we need to find the right collaboration collaborations. Yeah I mean Kyri had the French shoes and then all of a sudden friends super fans are coming out there and getting Kyrie's the spongebob. Obviously there was a game of thrones. We need to find some forged in fire collaboration shoes. You need to find those shoes and then they need to be like a Tj maxx like eighty percent off and then maybe maybe get into it you you know what I think is interesting just by the fact that you have like a chess leg your everyday shoes like I've starting to realize that if I look at your feet I'm realizing how important you're taking the situation. Hey you're at at that time so like if you're going out with me and you're just wearing your everyday shoes. I realize this isn't that important to go. Joe Well that or I look at because billy like you and and I've actually been out of the trips that I went down to south beach to do the show with you guys. You and I went out after and we had a good time. There was some drinks had and going to a place like that like I don't want to put myself in a situation where I'm going to compromise a pair of like good shoes so if I'm going out and I wear a pair of shoes and you see a little wear and tear on them. That means I'm I'm ready to have a good time like I got my shit kickers on ready to do the now. You mentioned the sneakers APP and we can't take this for granted that there's a lot of people listening in as pie that have have absolutely no idea and this may be an entree into this game so the sneakers have for any sneaker head is the lament of many but when you finally win. There were fewer more rewarding feelings. How do you approach a sneaker APP because my success rate on this thing is right around fifteen to twenty percent hovering around there? What's your success rate? And do you have any sort of life hacks that can help increase a my success rate multiple devices. This is the biggest revelation I had. Which is my family? In addition to being extremely supportive feeds. My and I'll call it like I know Mike. You're you're right at the breaking point here. I am at full on addiction and my family feeds it and so what happened along the way. is they all kind of like you. said there's there's a thrill of the hunt that goes along with especially not just the drops but when you get the Raffles Apples on here when you get off whites and things like that going on there and so I have my whole family. Enlisted like my dad has no idea what's going on but we put a sneakers AC APPA the count on his phone. I tell them when the drop is and I just tell them going here click the button. It's all set for you. And then pray. I have two pairs of Nike. The collaboration with with Jerry on the fear. Of God's My dad has hit on a pair of fear God's for me and a pair of all flights because I had the whole family canvassing the scene so it is. It's a group effort. Oh my God and I and I noticed that you get all the Travis Scott's I don't know how you get these grails but you've won them and it's just the multiple devices paying dividends vivid ends. Yeah multiple devices again. Like I have my brother. My brother's probably of my family and I put them to work. Usually has it on a computer. A phone own and tablet so he's a three device guy for the draw has no interest in keeping like ninety percent of them like he does it purely for the greater good. He is probably hit on more than anyone. Definitely only more than me have. They held you hostage yet. They know this is a pair that Mike really wants but I want a favor from him so they win them and then they're trying to get things out of you so you can get the sneakers sneakers you want. No but now I'm really worried they're gonNA listen and realize they can one hundred percent do that because I am that invested in the game at this point. So thank you for putting that into the universe bill when it comes up. I'm GONNA think of you go joe when you go and buy some and get you got the Goddamn notification When you get something that's a big hit like one of the ten off whites or or fear? God that has significant resale value. What's the temptation for you to say? You know what I think. I'm good on these but I can make X. amount of times more or than what I paid for on. What's the resale market looking like in your head when you get that? Got Him notification. Yeah you know what I haven't really ever thought about going down that road yet. Like the closest assist the the one where it looked like the biggest come up was when the Travis Travis Scott ones the backwards. The browns came out. I probably could've made about eight hundred bucks flip in those. The next day of those were real especially in my size because I wear a fourteen so it's a little bit obscure and so for my size. I could've probably made eight hundred nine hundred the bucks reselling those the next day and it just didn't appeal to me like again like I get these aware because it's fun because it's me and Mike and Mike exchanging text messages. It's that thrill I love when you see someone else in public who's also wearing like at the train station. A pair of the Travis Scott Fours in Houston blue where you kind of just both give each other that subtle nod like like to me. That's the drug here. It's not the resale yet so I've gone down the resale path and I've actually sold those Travis Travis Scott or force for like five hundred bucks so I've gone down on the path of I had the idea of if I get something I have to look and see on stock exor Golden. See how much I'm actually GONNA be able to get for them and that kind of determines like will I buy them or will line. Not but I to me those Travis Scott ones are the best drop of the entire. Are there better shoes. That have dropped this year. Opinion this year. nope I honestly the only one I think Travis is dominated this year. I think the ones are great and I really like again I told you. I'm huge on the ones. But for whatever reason he's in Travis's take on the six. I don't own a parent. Another pair of Jordan sixes probably never will but that forest like Cammo. Green six does something for me. I don't know what it is so I think that would be the only rival to the Travis one for me. I have a question for Anthony on the resale Friday so like it seems like you've done this a couple of times. So what do you look for when you're doing this like do you decide. I'm going to buy this size because I know this is a popular size that sells I know. This is a more common size. 'cause like go just saying that he's a size fourteen so you said right so like that's not a super common size so does that make it more valuable or does that make it less viable. 'cause there's less people size fourteen looking for though she right. So it's it's twofold. Hold on what I do just personally I get some thirteen so I go after my size. And that's where I have the devil and Angel my shoulder like hey you should probably sell us and be like no. Actually these are pretty drippy. Be Like I'm GONNA keep them. Yeah because if you can't sell them at least you can keep them because there are fewer to buy like an eleven or like a more. PODCAST is."
