This is a beautiful shoe. Why has it not sold out yet?

This is D3 The Concrete, bringing you fashion from the street.

For those that remember, I wrote an article about the announcement of this particular shoe, called the Nike Air Skylon II. I think it is the best shoe ever (for runners, anyway). From the ultra-bold colors, to the sleek & simple design of the shoe itself, the Skylon II is built to win.

But when the shoes released a couple of weeks ago, they did not sell out immediately (as I anticipated). As a consumer, this is good, because I may be able to grab a pair; however, this is not a good sign, due to the massive amount of hype surrounding the pre-release of the shoe.

I do think that what is going to happen is that it is going to take a high profile brand to collaborate with Nike to make this shoe become a more present and viable contender in the market of sneakers. Enter Fear of God. The shoes above is the collaboration with Nike on the Skylon II that is scheduled to release in the fall of 2018. This release is what will help to propel the Skylon II into the spotlight. Then, all it will take is to release more and more colorways and hues to keep the party going.

But for now, let’s enjoy the ones we have and get them now, because once the rest of the population comes to the party, we won’t have a chance to get to them any longer.
