Did you really want a pair, but just couldn’t cop a pair of Yeezy’s? Maybe you couldn’t afford the steep $215 price tag or the grotesque resale price of $500.
I have news for you……..you still can’t get them without $500.
However, you can get shoes that look pretty darn similar. As you would’ve expected Nike, as well as the rest of the sneaker companies, love making money. They quickly realized that they were on to something when people were willing to spend $215 on something other than vintage sneakers or Retro Jordan’s. So, they have begun, what you can be sure will become a trend you will come to hate before the year is out, of releasing shoes that are structured similarly to the Yeezy’s (I honestly don’t like saying that word).
Available in five different color ways the Nike RT1 High is just $95
Reebok has taken it back to the basics by releasing the Ex-O-Fit Hi’s; a shoe that was originally released 1987, with an added strap (since that’s what the young people want now days). These are the latest Summer 09 color ways: pink and deep purple. They go for $89.
So you have a number of reasons not to stress about missing out on the Yeezy’s:
The aforementioned shoes (reasons 1 & 2) and the fact that this won’t be the last you’ll see of the Yeezy’s. They’ll be back and they’ll be over done (reason 3).
