    Seems to be a lot of people claiming to have bought them for how few there were on sale, even though many missed out.

    In terms of you poll, I'd say its people spending dad's money.

    Obviously, Nike knows most of the shoes would finish on the big auction site.
    Why didnt they just sell them for $2000 and get over this bs?
    oh yeah... building the hype... marketing...

    How about "guy who thinks wearing RF means he's friends with Roger Federer and that Roger likes him"

    Maybe a collector of sports memorabilia? Either that or a really big (psychotic) Federer fan.
