From the ground up

In the market for buying and reselling sneakers, it goes without saying that one or two shoppers are going to get scammed. This was the case in a recent episode of Judge Judy, wherein a woman from Dallas claims she was cheated out of $8,800 worth of OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1s.

In the video above, Meadow Jones claims to have purchased 14 pairs of the Virgil Abloh x Nike collaborative shoe from the defendant, with the intention of flipping them for profit. The seller argues that he only received $6,500 after agreeing to sell 16 pairs (the discrepancy in quantities is unexplained). He claims that he purchased the sneakers wholesale from a store called “Flight Kicks,” and that the pairs were shipped. Jones, however, claims she only received empty boxes.

Judy ultimately rules on a settlement of $5000. But to see in whose favor, check the video above.

Elsewhere in the sneaker world, Converse and MadeMe have debuted a “By Girls, For Girls” capsule.
