Finish Line Wasn’t Any Better

So I went on a roller coaster ride with Eastbay, but buying on Finish Line wasn’t any better. Finish Line’s site uses a queue system to regulate purchases. First, there’s a queue just to get to the site itself during busy times. After a long time, I eventually got through the queue, added my shoe, […]

Eastbay Playing Games?

First time ordering through Eastbay today, and I went on a short roller coaster ride. Adding shoes to my cart was fast but checking out was puzzling. Where is the button/link to review and submit the actual order? It’s not there. 🙁   After trying all over again, I get this while checking out. Since […]

ResExp: Expectations

Really, when it comes down to it, it’s about setting and managing realistic expectations. That’s another key distinguishing point between #coppingkicks and #rossfinds. For whatever reason those indulging in #coppingkicks are expecting to get every sneaker they go after. They’ll always expect the “W” and not just for a single pair but multiple pairs of […]

Off-White Zip Tie, On or Off?

While I have not had the luxury of owning (okay, keeping) a pair of Nike and Off-White “The Ten” collaborations, I do wonder if you’re supposed to leave the telltale zip tie on or are you supposed to remove it? I would guess it gets in the way when walking, but on the same token, […]

Foot Locker Likes to Mess with Air Jordan 1 Fans

Foot Locker surely likes to mess around with the fans of the Air Jordan 1. If you’ve ever searched their site for “Air Jordan 1,” you’ll come across many models from the mid tops to the more popular high tops. Sometimes even popular, coveted AJ1 highs show up in inventory. Or does it? Watch this […]

Gotta Give It to Nike

You gotta give it to Nike and give credit where credit is due. During Super Bowl LIII, sneakerheads were watching the Super Bowl halftime show as Travis Scott performed in his signature Air Jordan 1 model. The hope, of course, was that Nike would shock drop those shoes when Scott took the stage, similar to […]

Adidas Boost Back at Nordstrom Rack

In December, I had come across lots of Adidas Boost shoes (including the Parley version of the UltraBoost ST) at Nordstrom Rack. Well, the Boost is back at The Rack. Here’s what I came across this past week. Sorry, I don’t have the prices, but they were hovering right at $100, except for the Reigning […]

ResExp: (Sneaker) Size Matters

Whether #coppingkicks or searching for #rossfinds, one notable distinction is that size matters. It really matters. Success in one field doesn’t equate to success in the other. So here it goes. When doing the #rossfinds thing, you’re hoping to score men’s shoes sized 9-12. These are the most common men’s sizes, so therefore, you have […]

ResExp: May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

The kicks game comes down to the odds plain and simple. Even with all the tech, all the servers, all the software, and all the accounts, the main goal is to increase your odds of being able to purchase a pair of shoes. That’s it. All the aforementioned simply help you maximize your odds of […]

ResExp: Revisiting Poshmark

I briefly dabbled with Poshmark as another means to sell my #rossfinds, but Posh is a different kind of place. The clientele is unlike eBay, and accordingly, your goods aka your closet, needs to match up. Rossfinds is not an ideal match for Poshmark since you can’t say the items are NWT (New with Tags) […]

ResExp: Buying High End Kicks Is High Tech

The most obvious observation of buying high end kicks aka #coppingkicks is how high tech it is. Software bots, monitors, quick tasks, cloud-based servers, virtual machines, VPN, proxies, and more are just some of the tech you’ll need to be familiar with if you want the high end. It’s amazing to see what tools are […]
