The concords DID change the sneaker game, but not by itself. The galaxys also played a role in helping. When the news showed people how crazy people get over sneakers it opened the eyes of resellers and banwagoners. Especially since this all happened in a period of 3 months.Resellers feel that they can get any retro or sought after sneaker and feel that they will make a great profit. Banwagoners only heard "Jordan Retro" and "Foamposite" they dont know colorways. That is why every single colorway sells out on shelves. That applies to both the GR released and some of the ugliest CWs.
Perfect example is the CHI X's. Look how quick those disappeaered from shelves. Look at the price people are selling them for. Lastly, look at all of the people who regret or dont even know why the hell they bought them.
The game has changed. I feel that it will be a while until it gets back to how it used to be in the early 2000's
