Nike Foamposite- Why?

First there was Chuck Taylor Converse, then Adidas Superstar, Air Jordans, the Iverson, and now the newest craze in sneakers is the Nike Foamposite. They are retailing for $220 and went on sale at midnight with long lines of purchasers, some camping out for days. Why?

Just like car, train, and coin collectors; there is a segment of the population that is always desiring the newest craze. These "glow in the dark" sneakers are stylish but are they better constructed than a well-made cross trainer from Brooks, New Balance, Saucony, or Asics? Probably not. But who cares? It is the hottest collector's item and people were actually trying to offer things to the people who were "lucky" enough to be in line with tickets to purchase them.

Check out these reviews and if you purchase a pair, please get back to us with your comments here or on twitter @PodiatryCare.
