The limited release of the "Aunt Pearl" KD6 had people venting on twitter, heavily. The highly sought after, limited KD6 sold out instantly, and sneakerheads shutdown Footlocker.com immediately after the release at 6pm ET last night.
Didn't think people would be hyped like that, but you can't under estimate the power of a limited "exclusive" release.
As always, the people needed to be heard, and they used their social media platforms, specifically twitter, to unleash their jokes/fury/sadness;
