Early this morning, there were rumors that the resellers who were featured in our Sold Out: The Underground Economy of Supreme Resellers documentary were banned from the store.

We reached out to those same resellers and they confirmed this isn't true. According to Andre, who goes by the name of @solestreetsneakerco, he wasn't banned from the Lafayette Street store. "Not at all, I just cleaned house," he told Complex via e-mail. "They did however limit me to Xls only and have the reason that it came from higher up because I took it too far on the doc. It sucks but I'm hoping the good that came from it out weighs the bad in the long run." He adds that he wishes Supreme would reach out to him directly and talk to him him about what their issue was.
Another reseller, who asked to remain anonymous, says the resellers who took part in the documentary are only allowed to buy their size. "Corporate cracked down and it's a big thing now." According to him, Charlie, the security guard who mans the door at the Supreme New York store, was fired because of the documentary.
We've reached out to Supreme for comment.
