Buying these Goredans was quite the challenge. So they dropped in Asia early. Early numbers were $330+ ($200US retail). Figured they'd be heavy hitters so I put my bid into StockX at $275.

After a few weeks, my bid was accepted, but StockX couldn't charge my card?

So by the time I got in to update my card, I noticed the price was falling quickly. That's when I put a real lowball bid into GOAT at $205 thinking maybe when they hit the US, they will dip that low. But that got accepted a few weeks later.

Finally, the shoes reach the authenticator and GOAT says there's a "glue stain" and they can offer me a discount or I can refuse them. I ask for a picture of the stain, they send me these:

Which uh, don't have any stains.

So I just said sure ship them. I don't see any stains and these are gonna be rainy day beaters anyway. But yeah, I've gotten shoes from GOAT from Japan that come in 2 days. These are shipping via FedEx from Netherlands and taking their sweet ass fucking time. At least they will only be like $180 shipped. :coold:

Looks clean to me. :dunno:

Canada and EU got the currys a while back as well - stock was pretty plentiful I think, couple restocks too...so probably a blessing that you're essentially getting em at retail. :bigthumb:

All of our Nike stuff originates out of NL 👀 but shipping takes forever and tends to sit there in NL for days....but then it shows up unexpectedly.
