There's something pathological about being first that's a little bit scary. Whether it's being the first to comment on an image or thread, or the first to cop the latest pair of must-have sneakers (or anything else, for that matter), the modern-day consumer society supports the whole idea of "I want it and I want it NOW." We're here to tell you that sometimes it pays to wait. There are so many releases nowadays that only the most limited of them sell out right away. There are re-stocks and mysterious outlet appearances, let alone all the sneakers that find their way to clearance racks both in real life and on the internet. So pick your battles wisely. Sure the Yeezys aren't going to wind up on a shelf for $69.99, but those Air Maxes or Lunars probably will. Sometimes good things indeed come to those who wait.
