Grails: The hard to get, so imma brag about it, super thread!

Recommended Posts

So yeah, surprised this isn't already a thread, so here we go...

 

Time for you the mother fuckers that got em, to pull out the big guns you got in your stash. The hard to get shit, that the Hypebeasts lust after, that the resellers droll over and that breaks the bank on eBay.

 

Rules are:

1. You have to post your original photo (no google image shots and unsubstantiated claims).

2. You have to tell the back story on where you came up on it.

3. Pricing, offering, selling, trading are allowed.

4. Having bought it recently at exorbitant prices is frowned upon as far as this thread goes.

 

So if you got something good, post it!

Will start with a pair of Supreme x Nike Dunks High's - Collegiate Orange, 10.5.

 

Copped at Supreme when they released. Didn't bother calling in a favor and though I didn't really wait the line either, by the time I walked in, my size was sold out. Copped a 10.5 which was the closest to a 12, with the intent to trade someone for my size. Never happened, so finally put them up for sale recently since they've been collecting dust. Got a zillion offers and finally accepted $1000 from a kid that seemed really cool and had a very respectable collection on his IG feed. So ended the auction early, and here we are.

Damn @glorydayswith the fire... I'd definitely be happy to own either of those. Not a baseball fan, but that jersey is sick!

?uest Love x Nike AF1s... 

 

My studio did all the original Nike product shots of this release, which often resulted in getting floated a pair. So, was happy to be handed a set in my size. As you can see, I actually wear my stuff (assuming it fits), so this was a great pair of summer kicks to strut through NYC with when they dropped. Also got to see him perform at an invite only Nike party in the backyard party area behind Rivington Club. 

 

Good times... Definitely miss the old NY.

Okay, not my pair, but I scored them. Living in NYC and trying to keep crisp, which extends to the whole family... Was pumped to come across a kids size quick strike pair of Jordan x 40 Acres and a Mule Spizikes. Of course my kid chewed them up in days on the swing set and crawling around the playground, but he looked fresh doing it!

Sorry (not sorry) to be riding my own jock on the grails... But wouldn’t be right to not drop the AKANYC x Nike AF1s. Limited to 48 pairs and strictly F&F. (CrudeOil RIP)

@KultsDamn, not trying to snuff out the enthusiasm. Going to time it down so other people can drop some gems. 

 

@glorydays? @6Pennies?

 

I know for sure that both of you are sitting on some grails.

I love seeing those I'm just messing around. It's setting the bar pretty high though that's for sure!

 

I'm with you 100% about wearing the clothes and shoes I have. Those AF1s are such a work of art it would sting to break them out. The level of detail on them is unreal. The process Nike used to etch the tags in like that is just so fresh. Having Crude Oil handstyles on a Nike sneaker alone is sick. The spacing is A++ too it would have been easy to just plaster the whole thing and make it look like a pattern from a distance, I love that sneaker and I think I'd mentioned before I'm not even that into AF1s.

 

I find it kinda funny that people are tripping out over Virgil scrawling some shitty block letters on blank Air Forces. If some of these younger Hypebeasts with a keen eye saw these I feel they'd lose their shit.

What’s the story with it?

this was back in winter 2012 and i was heavy into japanese "ametora" or american traditional heritage shit

 

i saw this suit on display in union los angeles and i asked if it was on sale

at first they said no, like the manager and the two clerks

a few hours later chris union came in, first time i met the dude and he saw me admiring it

i told him that i was a huge fan of the brand and that i would die for this suit

so he said fuck it and that i could buy it off him

i asked him how much and he said what do you have lol

i gave him 600 for the whole thing

Not much of a story behind how I copped them. Got chatting to a guy in a saucony group and he mentioned he had DS burgers in my size and he gave me a steal price too. Not sure on the exact numbers released.
