The final straw: Off-White Air Jordan 1s ‘Powder Blue’ shipped in the wrong box. Consider the camel’s back broken.
One sneaker lover who managed, against all odds, to score a pair of the coveted kicks was shattered to receive the shoes in a humdrum Jordan Brand box. While non-collectors might respond to that with a simple ‘Who cares? It’s just a box!’ well, you’re/we’re wrong. For many, the box is as coveted as its contents.
And so the disgruntled punter took to Twitter.
Seriously @nikestore You got dudes out here you're letting get 40,50,60 pairs and I manage to barely get 1, out of total random reserve luck, and you send me this box...man wtf pic.twitter.com/Kltqz5p2cG
