As far as kids, AF1's are stil the same price. My mom never bought me Air Jordan's or any overpriced Nike signature growing up. She fueled my passion for sneakers.

I have no problem with females that are genuinely into sneakers. The other females who do it just to be part of the "in crowd" annoy me.

I wouldn't buy my kid FOAMS or any super pricy shoes until he was in high school. And if he got em it would because the report was on point.

Real Talk. I played myself buying matching Js for lil man, but by the time he turned 3, I was like what is the point. Especially since he favored the shoes from Old Navy, and Childrens place more than the nikes. I wised up and just stocked up on old navy kicks, or childrens place . Then for special occasions throw a pair or two of Js or nikes if I can get them on discount just to have.

These days do yourself and your kids a favor...cop some asics or new balances. Maybe save up for that one pair they've wanted for a while and call it a day. kid's shoe sizes change quickly so it's really not a wise buy given that they might outgrow $100+ sneakers in a relatively short time.

MIne is only seven, and truth be told these kids don't give a rats ***, its really us who care about it. That goes for clothes too, as long as they look presentable and clean it doesn't matter if its RL, or oshkosh B'gosh they are going to look good either way.

True, I don't even cop Js anymore, and I don't feel like I'm missing anything either. From the price increase to the games we have to play just to buy a pair of shoes mean.gif no thanks, I've had enough.

I worked in a shoe store when prices first started getting kinda crazy like 120 etc for GS sizes. Even back then I was like this is too much...

I love nike and I've loved sneaker culture in general for a very long time BUT there is no way in hell I can justify buying a child 180 dollar sneakers. It's just not practical.

To answer your question OP ppl are dumb nike is smart. As long as people keep buying. Nike will keep producing.

Before I had a kid I SWORE my kids were going to be fresh to death with baby Jordans, Air Max's and all that.

…My boy is 2.5 years old now and wears whatever I can get on sale. Mostly Vans and New Balance.

I'll be damned if I am going to drop a ton of loot on something he is going to grow out of in a few months. It'd be like throwing money out the window.

THIS....


My son will be 6 soon, and hes had some kobes, lebrons or durants that were purchsed for like $40 to $50 bucks at the outlets.

you would be surprised how quick kids outgrow shoes and clothes and how quick kids tear these shoes up. It aint worth it.

My aunt is a manager at a sketchers store and he stays laced with them kicks. those things can take a beating.

Ill still buy him decent shoes here and there but not like I used to say I would.

I dont even spend $180 on shoes anymore....

there are no foamposites or jordans out there that i would pay $180 for GS. truly is ridiculous, but if Nike didn't think they'd be able to pull it off, they wouldn't. they see the opportunity and realize there will be people out there who do buy it. while these shoes might not fly off the shelves, there will be those who will buy them right away...
