Many Shoetubers are struggling because they really do not offer anything unique that makes them stand out from the pack. It's the same tired formula of clickbait titles, shocked expression thumbnail pics and talk about what the resell price could be. It seems that most of them only wear the shoe for an on feet look and then it goes in their container store drop box.

How embarrassing for Stockx. With "hack gate", questions of authenticity and stuff like this I cannot fathom why anyone would use them anymore.

Must say.. As a Bengals fan, life is miserable enough as it is, but missing out on both these and the OG SBB’s hurts my soul. Maybe someday we’ll get a third rendition in the Banned colorblocking...
As a Ravens fan, I offer you my AFC North sympathies (Steelers and Browns fans can all kick rocks though). Burrow will be great for you guys.

all companies make mistakes, but too often they're inconsistent and they suck at recovering gracefully. similar thing happened to me recently...sold a shoe I got from them and they rejected it. :smh:
Happened to me too. They were in the process of shipping it back to me before I emailed them the email trail where I complained about getting the shoe in the first place and that I was gonna resell it through the app. They redirected the package back to themselves and then released my money since the shoes were legit, just in terrible condition.

I've gotten a couple of torn boxes like that too, and a box with water damage. I just got codes for it all. Annoying, but it is what it is. I wish they were more consistent with that the way GOAT is, but they clearly don't train all their "authenticators" the same.

yeah it sucks man, I'm with ya 100%. unfortunately in my situation I didnt complain about the condition of the shoes initially because I didnt really inspect them much. it was a pair of AJKOs I just didn't like instantly and put them right back in the box but I guess there were some light stains. it's unfortunate a supposed billion dollar company cant accept responsibility and that I wasn't given the benefit of the doubt given my track record with them, but yeah it is what it is. i'm currently in the process of filing a chargeback with my bank.

I’ve been consistently outspoken on stockX and have been accused of derailing this thread with my anti-stockX sentiments(from personal experiences). It’s never been my intention; I’ve only wanted to warn people from making the same mistakes that I’ve made by using that service.

THE ONLY reason stockX is going to take care of this customer is because he put them on blast on social media. What about the other TENS OF THOUSANDS of buyers who experience similar or worse issues and get ABSOLUTELY NOTHING?!?!?! They have one job; authenticating NEW shoes-and they can’t even do that correctly.

What happened with UN?
If he's talking about what I think he's talking about, Urban Necessities got caught authenticating fake sneakers as legit. Some guy went into UN with a hidden camera in his glasses and like a few replicas to be legit checked (Yeezy 350, Jordan 1s, Travis 6). He went up to have them legit checked and I believe 3 out of 4 pairs of the replicas passed as legit.

Then the owner of UN made a response video saying with the amount of shoes they purchase to sell there are bound to be some that might be replicas. But if you bring up the issue with them, they'll do their best to resolve it for you immediately.

Here you go, found the videos.

The moment I realize GOAT is finally charging tax in my state:sick:
Got hit with 10% tax. Not digging it at all.
And now they also add shipping to the value, which will also fsck up prices. I bought a pair of NB Bodegas and they added the international shipping to the value, causing SG to charge me duty as I went over the limit by $10. 🙄

holy ****. man i knew that UN wasnt perfect and that a few pairs were bound to get thru due to the sheer volume of shoes they deal with. i mean, i understand, it happens to em all, stockx, goat, FC, etc. it sucks, but it happens from time to time. but maaaaan, i thought that would be once in a while.
but bringing in 4 fake pairs and having 3 of em pass all in 1 go.......thats not once in a while. if it as me, as soon as i see that 1 pair that wasnt gonna pass, i woulda went back to the other 3 and did a doublecheck just to be sure.
