Tier Zero means the higher volume stores such as Chicago State Street etc. I actually might wait in line for these. Last time I waited was for the blue Don C 2, OVO 10, Chicago 1 and Shattered Backboard 1 because they all dropped at the grand opening of the Jumpman Store downtown Chicago. Now that was worth it lol

From what I heard, they are releasing tomorrow, but only in NYC in a limited quantity. My connect said they only had size 6 or smaller left, but that may have been from a separate non-retail stock.

I'm hoping they actually release in Chicago. I wouldn't mind waiting in line either...

If you hear they're dropping in Chicago and want to line up together DM me bro. Hopefully they drop in Chicago but I won't be surprised if they're NYC only.

Well if anything they'd be NY, and LA only no? Would consider taking a day off work, and trying for them if a Philly store qualified for Tier Zero.

Called the tierzero store in my city yesterday and was told that they wouldn't be getting any because it was such a limited release. Guess my city wasn't cool enough.

Sucks Brazzy, I know you were totally committed to camping out for a shot at these. I simply flirted with the idea of doing so, but if the shop you were confident would get some isn't, then I'm sure no shop in Philly will. Not even going to look into it now.

Google search revealed Barnys as Philly's sole Tier Zero store. That dog won't hunt Monsignor.

A guy on the Facebook BST group, who claims he got this from a reliable source, is saying that the two mystery figures are rubber blue and black BFFs with a massive run size, coming to MoMA later. We'll find out soon enough.

I think it would be logical to do GID blue and greens like the OG 5yl, but whatever it is, I really hope it isn't an Asia exclusive. The flipper prices will be through the roof on whatever it is. I'd love to get a pair of GID companions to compliment the OE set.

I put together a compilation of all the Kaws x Peanuts x Uniqlo Leaks I found. At first I was a little put off by another UT collab as the quality if the first one was well below Original Fake standards, but after seeing the designs I'm hyped. Also that Snoopy plush...I really hope they produce that in mass quantities like all Uniqlo stuff. A crazy couple months for Brian fans indeed.

Liking the new t-shirts a lot.

Plush looks like it might be quite small... but a nice thing anyway!

two sizes on the plush. Hopefully it'll be easy to grab these in store on drop day.

Nothing to do with target specifically. The release date for book itself was pushed back to May a while ago.
