What's up HB
I'm fairly new to limited sneaker buying, but I find interest in a lot of sneakers. I'm not a sneakerhead, but that's neither here nor there.
So normally for a limited sneaker release that I want, I sit online and wait for the shoes to drop and then i buy them real quick, wait for the slow shipping, etc. etc.
I just found that there is a House Of Hoops a half hour away from my school and I was thinking I might try purchasing that way. I've never bought a limited sneaker in person so I don't really know what to expect though.
I'm looking at the Lebron X "Gold Medal" but I need to get a pair for myself and a friend who's offering a proxy. I have some questions, sorry if they're dumb:
-Do they open the doors at the same time as online drops (FootLocker, NDC, Eastbay, etc.)?
-Would they let me buy multiple pairs?
-How long would the wait be for a shoe of this type? I'm not really trying to wait overnight, or even hours for that matter.
-Is it possible to wait and then not get a pair, or is that rare?
-Do people normally camp for these shoes, and then there are still pairs left later in the day anyway?
Any insight would be awesome.
