You pay re-seller prices instead of waiting for a re-stock.
It's an all too familiar feeling amongst longtime sneaker fiends: Release day comes, and you can think of nothing but the day's biggest release. Then you strike out everywhere, and the need becomes downright pathological—you'll pay anything to get that sneaker today. Don't give in. Paying double retail to some re-seller just to see a re-stock happen the following week is the worst.
