The Morning After Taking An L

It is 3:56 AM on a Saturday morning.  Instead of clutching my teddy bear and engaging in REM sleep, I am clutching my iPhone under the false pretense that I actually have a legitimate chance of acquiring a pair of Kentucky Blue Nike Dunk Low from the Nike SNKRS app.

At precisely 4:06 AM, I unsurprisingly receive my DIDN’T GET ‘EM confirmation. 

Didn’t Get’Em = Bots got them first.

With little hesitation and even less fanfare, I accept my L and acknowledge it’s back to the (sleep) lab again yo.

Thankfully, I have a pair of Kentucky Blue Nike Dunk High that I purchased years ago to hold me over.

Upon my groggy reentry into the real world of Saturday morning responsibilities, I rummage through my closet of deadstock sneakers and select a pair of kicks that turn my 4:06 AM L into an 8:30 AM W.  

This is the pair I retrieved from my closet.

Before making its official outdoor debut, an essential lace swap ensues, replacing the stock flat black laces with a more premium blue pair from Ropelacesupply.

Taking an L is commonplace in the world of online sneaker shopping.  Unless you have the aid of a bot or are purchasing a pair of less desired kicks, most hyped online releases are usually a waste of time.  

Un-DSing a pair of fly kicks is my cathartic release to the early morning online sneaker L.
