Perhaps some will show up in the July sale as NN and 30% off! :lol:

When I saw that there were only nine left and estimated delivery pushed out to 31 March I thought…..

They will all go within a day or two, for obvious reasons.

Such is life with what turn out to be desirable LE models from many brands.

No risk. Nothing to pay until delivery. Plenty of chance to see if any of those already delivered end up being flipped at a premium.

If yes - pay, take delivery and flip at a premium.

If no - cancel order.

It could though be that all nine end up with people who are buying to wear, but maybe not….

Not sure these would be pay at delivery, if they’re pre-orders… maybe for delivery in 4 months they would be, but more sure…

But yes, I’m sure some have been bought for flipping… how much return they’d actually seen on these I have no idea :problem:

For a minute I read this as you were planning on flipping at a premium if you saw they were selling at a premium, and I was SHOCKED! :shock:

Then I realized what you meant. That thought hadn’t even occurred to me, but I guess it makes sense, what with capitalism and all.

That red/black version is super good looking. I’m also sick of orange accents on everything.

It was a photoshopped mock-up someone did. It should be in this thread somewhere?

I pre-ordered mine for delivery after Christmas and can confirm that payment is not delayed to take account of scheduled delivery so by the time mine arrives I'll have made several paypal monthly payments.

Maybe (just kidding) I'll take a leaf out of the Rolex Flipper Handbook and flip for oh about seven grand? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
