I love all the pics of these in the snow! Whenever it's raining down here. Which is usually a lot! I only rock my foams. Things are like tanks!

Rain is preference thing but i've never understood wearing sneakers in the snow, icy sidewalks and driveways are a recipe for disaster.

The shoes are just rubber and leather, and the snow is just water. People need to settle down, acting scared to give normal wear to mass-produced easily replaceable sneakers.

One of the hallmarks of the foam is their durability. Being afraid to wear them in the elements is absurd - people might as well be saying they're afraid to wear a North Face in bad weather.

The only reason a $200+ pair of plain black sneakers even makes is sense as an alternative to a boot in bad weather.

ohwell.gif not exactly when it comes to the stealth foams. and definitely for no where near retail.

it's not that novel an idea that some people like to wear their shoes, but also avoid wearing them in conditions that would turn them into beaters faster (i.e rain, snow, mud, hiking, construction work, etc).

I applaud those who wear them in rain and snow, y'all are better than me. At the end of the day, they spent their money, so they can rock em how they see fit. Some don't care if they yellow.

Nope.

Exactly.

Nike made tens of thousands of pairs, and half the people who bought them don't even wear them. You may have to pay a bit above box to get them, but they are ubiquitous. There's nothing to protect - these are glorified goon kicks.

We're all different and just need to accept we"ll wear our shoes differently.
I've got some shoes that are 5-6 yrs old that I wear but the look ds whereas I see a lot of guys in shoes that came out last week but look like they've walked through a muddy field in them.

I'm from Chicago and we tend to have harsh winters so outside of work out shoes, I don't wear anything but Tim's and Acg boots from Nov-Mar.

If I was a senior citizen I would be wearing orthopedic shoes not Foams.  Foams are very durable... the clear soles on the foams however are not.  I always thought the purpose of a beater is having shoes you don't care about getting messed up.  But again, to each his/her own. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.  Personally for $220, I'd rather wear Timberlands, or my Air Zoom Flight Premium's that I got at Nike Outlet for $35.  In terms of them being "mass produced" funny I hadn't noticed.  Maybe you know something I don't, but I don't believe these were mass produced, and they aren't exactly easy to come by... well not for retail anyway.

Rocked mine at the mall today for the first time.  Broke a couple necks, and talked to a few sneaker heads.  I was feeling good until I saw a guy with the Galaxy Rookies standing next to a guy wearing the Galaxy Ones.  Stole my thunder tongue.gif

Wait a minute. This is the same dude who one page ago was talking about he's 30, with a house and a wife (as if that was relevant anyway). Now, he talking about "breaking necks" and talking to other "sneakerheads" at the mall, only to have his day ruined because of the sneakers some other dude was wearing. And, all this while rocking a shirt that says "Bury me in my Foams."

Bury you... but just make sure it's not a burial at sea... because we can't go getting the Foams wet or anything.

Okay, yeah, I think we're done here.

Let me help with this situation as I have some experience in getting some bad quality on limited shoes from NDC... First, call Nike up and see if they can locate a replacement.. this is HIGHLY unlikely but with returns and such fourth, you never know. If that doesnt work, ask them about a discount on the shoe. I had the same thing happen to me with the RF 287s that came out (only 287 pair made in the world)... As you guessed they couldnt magically make another pair but they did give me 20% off.... not a coupon, but credited my card back the 20%. If you ask nicely, they may do more than that..... The key is respect, if you are respectful to the rep, they will help you...

Good luck bro. smokin.gif

Lol, so I really want these and was bidding in eBay for them...one thing led to another and I ended up bidding $375 + $20 shipping with 2 minutes left...

Then I started thinking, damn really, almost $400 for these? That's almost as much as my Pradas and Bruno Maglis...thank goodness someone went $380

Wait a minute. This is the same dude who one page ago was talking about he's 30, with a house and a wife (as if that was relevant anyway). Now, he talking about "breaking necks" and talking to other "sneakerheads" at the mall, only to have his day ruined because of the sneakers some other dude was wearing. And, all this while rocking a shirt that says "Bury me in my Foams."

Bury you... but just make sure it's not a burial at sea... because we can't go getting the Foams wet or anything.

Okay, yeah, I think we're done here.

lol good one, shirt was a gift from wifey for Christmas, what better time to wear it than with the shoes.  I'm not going to waste my time e-beefing with someone who probably has never even seen a little penny commercial.  Find someone else to go back and forth with cool guy, that's not what I'm here for.

FTR - I'm older than you are. I'm married as well. And, I'm a home owner too.

They're still just shoes. Have a good day.
