After a slight pushback, the Kobe X Elite Low HTM launch went down today at Milan's NikeLab LNZ1. While the rest of us eagerly anticipate a global release, resellers are already cleaned up.
Founder of Project Blitz Croatianstyle took to IG to show off a rack of various sizes and colorways, remarking that "These boys in Italy do not play." In total, we counted around 33 HTMs in his stash. There's no mention of where these pairs came from, but we were able to track down the source of a portion of his insane haul.
Another reseller, Hichem Merahi, shared a dozen pairs on a Facebook group, noting that Croationstyle had already copped 20 pairs from him at $2,690 a pop. With current eBay prices hovering around $4k, the total haul is well over $100,000 if they all sell.
Can't knock the hustle, I guess.
