At this point, the reason for lengthy delays associated with anticipated sneaker releases is clear and present. The Corona Virus [COVID-19] has affected everyone. This grim reality doesn’t mean that frustration associated with scheduled sneaker releases is not justified or warranted. However, the commonsense and quite frankly – humanity associated with the delays should be obvious to most.
When people indulge in their hobbies away from their professions I and other aspects of their lives, it’s easy to see them as a singular label. This perspective is extremely common with respect to sneakerheads. The reality however is that sneakerheads can be found across all walks of life. Beyond all the essential workers and medical professionals who consider themselves sneakerheads, some of the largest sneaker markets like [New York, Los Angeles and Washington DC] have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 epidemic.
Despite the setbacks, sneakers and sneakerheads are and have always been very resilient. The sneaker community also has a strong track record of surviving everything from hurricanes to wildfires so it’s not a bravado to say that things will get better and releases will return.
