The famous “Bloodbath”.


I actually tried to get these starting at 0:00 until 3:00 in the night, finally got them the following day at 3:30 pm. After trying like 10 sites, all immediately selling out.

Especially frustrating is that I had two pairs in the cart at one site and Paypal called me to verify my account. That call was about one minute too long.


These are truly superior and I couldn’t be happier. I almost gave up hope. As in a Hollywood-movie: Almost the last try worked.

I went on SNS and tried my size (and a half up/down). It always showed “in another cart”.¬† I kept trying and most of the sizes were disappearing.


At last there was still a us 6 and a us 8.5 (my usual Puma-size) available. My hopes faded but finally it was in my cart. That ‘reserved’ function¬†(they reserve a pair for you for 10 minutes with some shoes) as Nike.com does is really good, I tried several options at the payment and I still got mine anyway.

Another story that boosted my anticipation:

END made an error and released them really early. They wanted to put the countdown page online but released them for sale by mistake. I was quick enough to order but later I got a cancellation and an excuse.

The whole package is just a fine example to even show “normal” people why I like shoes so much.

  • There’s a huge box
  • Lined with foam
  • Extra sharktooth keyring
  • Extra laces in a special “Sneaker Freaker”-bag
  • Extra insoles

I got the “black beast” back then, which was a lot easier by comparison. I only went on one site and ordered. Quite easy.

The same day a Jordan 1 “UNC/ powder blue” came which I didn’t even get one pair (and they were a general release), at least I got these.

Buying advice:
The Blaze Of Glory is the Disc Glory without the Disc system
that may fail over time.
It is one of the best collabs of our time.
Get it if you want a special overall package.
Don’t get it if you just want some shoes.

It is an eur 41.
