It’s hard to safe what will happen with Sneakerhead culture in the next five years. With Nike pretty much controlling the flow of 90% of the prized goods at their leisure, we’re all sheep at the end of the day. But who’s to judge.

We all know reselling is a big money game, but the players are getting younger, and the stakes are getting higher. The real questions is: are these kids ruining the culture? Nightline recently took an honest look at where the sneakergamer is in 2013.
