I completely understand hypebeast items. The Supreme stuff is a whole different level of stupidity. As an ex sneaker-ho, I will NEVER understand the prices that Supreme and Supreme collabs bring. As an avid Ultraboost wearer, I feel the same way about Yeezy's. But like anything, if people will buy, the company's will continue to release items in "limited quanities".
For sure. I compare these Scotty releases to a Supreme drop. Limited quantity. Fast sell out times. Marked up resell prices. Higher than normal retail prices to begin with. Etc, etc.
I mean, I also didn't feel like paying $80 for a SC hoodie. But if I really wanted it, I'd just justify it by saying "Well the Bog Logo hoodies retail for $159..."
I agree. the thing that gets me with the scotty limited release gear (not talking putters), is that there really isnt that much profit to be made to seem worth it to me.
Example- blade putter cover- $90 with shipping then people re-sell for $100-$125 shipped...
The lone example I see turning a huge profit are the golf bags he releases. Those are a whole nother story..
The stand bags are where the most money is made flipping i would say -- i buy the covers and hold on to them for a neat little collection. I've bought 2 standbags -- 1 i flipped to cover the cost of the other but they can easily be sold for 2x what you pay if not more.
