If I bought those (triple white Yeezy's), I'd be scared I'd destroy them on one wear.

Look nice though.

What’s the appeal of these, super comfortable?

It’s all hype because of the yeezy name attached to them

You have obviously never tried on a pair of yeezy's. The are the most plush sneaker that I and many others have ever worn. More boost then the ultraboost but somehow they made it softer. Legit like walking on pillows. Yes they are SUPER comfortable IF you like plush feeling shoes. I wear ultraboost's every day for work and gym which are perfect everyday shoes and a little firmer boost midsole. The yeezys come out on a casual weekend or night. I also wear my Yeezy's. I could care less about resale value as i would gladly drop the $$ for them based off of comfort alone. YMMV, but I also love the looks of them. And if you can get them at retail price, they are only $-$20-$40 more expensive then Ultraboost.

There are many other brands and designers that are all hype. Like SUPREME. Are you kidding me? $200+ retail for a hoodie with a small box logo that sells for $500+ resale that is no different then a cotton hanes sweatshirt for $15 at walmart. But people will gladly pay for that logo and they create Supply & Demand.

Boost (which is the backbone of Yeezy shoes) is actual chemical technology. Boost was developed by BASF on accident and realized they could sell it to a shoe manufacturer as a midsole option for shoes when all of the boost particles were welded together. Hence one of the reasons that Boost shoes tend to cost more $$. Adidas is essentially paying BASF for their technology and exclusive rights to use their material. Adidas doesn't even own BOOST.

For the guys questioning the comfort level, head to your local shoe store and try on anything Ultraboost and make it about 20% more plush with more boost under your feet and boom, There is your Yeezy 350.

Correct. I think they are ugly as s*** and I won’t look past that because of Kanye hype.

The next pair I really want are the ZX400 with the 4D sole. They are so fire. Out on the 9th. But most likely very hard to get like  most 4Ds.

Can anyone explain the sizing on the Element React 87's? I bought a pair in my usual 11.5 (Air Max and Jordan size) and the left shoe felt crazy big/long. The right fit better. Every review said to go up a half size, but for some reason I'm thinking going down a half size? If the right foot fits OK, will a half size make much of a difference? Also, anyone actually like the cork sole?

I too went up a 1/2 size (11.5 to 12) and feel like I could comfortably move to an 11. Solid shoe nonetheless.

I'll probably get the blue ones in an 11 and see if that's better. On a side not, but the 720 northern lights in today. I read reviews to go true to size, but that could be a little long with the foot moving so I went half size down to an 11 and it's great. I have a low volume foot so width doesn't bother me as much as length does.

I was in line and my phone refreshed the page and had to get back in line. Then it said my payment method was unsuccessful. I guess that was just a nice way of saying I was SOL! Ugh! Back to my boost as well!

I somehow was able to pick up a pair.  I honestly didnt think they would sell, but then I thought about it and most 11's especially if OG colorway will sell out.

Was also able to grab up a pair of the J1 Turbo Green.

Same here...I actually got screwed on SNKRS for the J1s. It said I was in line, then I got the "You Got Em" screen, but the screen also said image cannot be seen. Got a confirmation notification on my phone, but no email confirmation or purchase in my acct history. Called Nike and they basically said oh well. Called Foot Locker and got them in hand about 15 mins later.

Anyone know if the React Element 87s in Royal Tint will release in the US or did I totally miss it? I know they released in Europe last night/early this morning and are on resale sites.
