The only obvious assumption to safely take from this is that Kanye is dead set on selling shoes and apparel in equal measures. “The rest of the Yeezy products haven’t had nearly the type of market they hoped,” Luber says. “At the end of every season you see Yeezy Supply clothes go on sale and markdowns in order to sell through.” By bundling hoodies and sweatshorts with the shoes, Kanye is creating demand for his [url=http://www.rotulosalbir.es/Adidas-ZX-Flux-Mujer-c-10_11.html]Adidas ZX Flux Mujer[/url][url=http://www.jwrennie.co.uk/nike-air-max-tavas-c-39/nike-air-max-tavas-womens-c-39_41/]Nike Air Max Tavas Womens[/url] [url=http://www.rostfriaarbeten.se/Nike-Air-VaporMax-Dam-c-17_18.html]Nike Air VaporMax Dam[/url] clothes—the [url=http://www.rotulosalbir.es/Adidas-NMD-Mujer-c-19_20.html]Adidas NMD Mujer[/url] stuff he’[url=http://www.wimatherm.de/]www.wimatherm.de[/url] s agitated to make for years—where, previously, it may not have existed. It’s a smart bet: resellers like Baez buy everything, assuming they’re going to get a return on their investment either way.
Whether this is a smart long-term strategy remains to be seen. One not-so-encouraging early return: the shoes are still available as a bundle through the Yeezy Supply site. It’s unprecedented for a Kanye shoe to sit for even a couple minutes, let alone a couple days. The bundle definitely discouraged people from buying the shoes. Schlossman says he went to buy the shoes on Tuesday but ultimately opted out when he saw the $760 package was the only option. But several other factors besides the price point are probably delaying the sale. Luber points out that the dead of winter is an outrageous time to hawk $240 sweatshorts—”That [url=http://www.annieleibo.cz/nike-air-max-tavas-c-26/nike-air-max-tavas-daacutemskeacute-c-26_27/]Nike Air Max Tavas Dámské[/url] [url=http://www.jwrennie.co.uk/nike-air-max-command-c-36/nike-air-max-command-womens-c-36_38/]Nike Air Max Command Womens[/url] almost [url=http://www.annieleibo.cz/nike-roshe-run-c-47/nike-roshe-run-daacutemskeacute-c-47_48/]Nike Roshe Run Dámské[/url] [url=http://www.wimatherm.de/nike-air-max-tavas-c-34/nike-air-max-tavas-damen-c-34_35/]Nike Air Max Tavas Damen[/url] feels [url=http://www.roberttrinick.co.uk/nike-air-max-90-c-51/nike-air-max-90-womens-c-51_52/]Nike Air Max 90 Womens[/url] insulting,” he says—and notes that none of this will even ship until March 1st. Baez, though, doesn’t have any regrets even though he has yet to sell the shoes despite unprecedented page views on his listing. He’s marked the shoes down to $1,709, but he’s not worried. “I break even no matter what,” he says. “It’s all about patience and having that money to invest… It’s a hot commodity. When there’s demand, you supply.”
