There's no doubt that today's Supreme release was going to be trouble. With a slew of gear that had both hypebeasts and casual fans interested, there's no way that this was going to be an easy Thursday for any hopeful shoppers.
Oh, and by the way, did we mentioned that the Supreme site actually crashed. Yes, it's hard to cop gear on the website, thanks to a deluge of resellers and (albeit dwindling) bot behavior. But add in a site crash into the mix, and...well, it's like trying to lock down a pair of Yeezy Boosts on adidas' website.
Even before the drop, there was hesitation.
To Supreme or not Supreme today, that is the question.— Dynamics • £ (@theDYNAMICS) August 27, 2015
But when a surprise slowdown hit Supreme's webshop, it was clear how many people were scared of missing out on today's release (and salty when they lost a shot at the gear in their carts).

But site crash or no, there were definitely going to be a few unlucky hypebeasts who would strike out at checkout.

Sorry Supreme, I love you but I hate you. Make some more fucking products so everything doesn't sell out before the online shop even opens.— Liv (@livviiiiii) August 27, 2015
Missed Out On The Supreme Drop Once Again— Alex Moore (@Fineboyalex) August 27, 2015
anything with the supreme box logo sells out right away but all the other shirts that don't have supreme everywhere don't, I see y'all— CEMOAN (@moonchildsymone) August 27, 2015
But without a doubt, the most controversial item in the release was the now-infamous Supreme crowbar—which, of course, sold out almost instantly.
If they sold a dick with Supreme on it, it would sell out smh https://t.co/43rGMtm7Kw— Jason (@Maniak_JayTwo) August 27, 2015
Why did supreme come out with a crowbar.... And why did people line up to buy it?— Gumbo Kang (@richgetzitin) August 27, 2015
Whoever purchased a supreme crowbar needs to be hit with it.— Weston Arnel (@Big_dubbb) August 27, 2015

Supreme crow bars...... Lmao— Gary (@__FiftySeven) August 27, 2015
While this Fall/Winter 2015 drop had a few interesting quirks, it's effectively par for the course when it comes to a Supreme release Thursday.
Always last picked for the Supreme team— Kid Presentable (@panderson2) August 27, 2015
Head over to Supreme to cop what's remaining (if anything).
