With todays current economy, everyone in the U.S. has been affected by the changes in some way, shape, form, or fashion, even the sneakerheads. We all know that inflation plays a role in the economy as a whole, but could the rising costs of what has generally been labeled an “unessential” purchase, be forcing some of us sneakerhads to think about the direction the sneaker world is going in.
Upon pondering the subject at hand, can we really just place all of the blame on inflation? Are we forgetting that the concept of supply and demand also is a key contributor to an increase in prices as well? Either way, neither of the reasons seems to be stopping any of the sneakers we all hunt for, whether on or after the release dates, from coming with a heavy price tag.
With all that being said, it’s time to hear from all of you sneakerheads out there! Since we are the consumers, is this a cause for concern or just an inevitable occurrence? How do you sneakerheads feel about this subject going forward with so many releases on tap to hit retailers in the months to come? Are you still going to remain relentless in your pursuit of your favorite releases or will you start to hunt a little bit smarter?
