The Nike Online Shop
One of the most popular worldwide branded names in the sneaker industry is Nike. Leaders in Nike shoes for women, and Nike shoes for men. A brand that deems respect when laying down the big bucks for rubber and leather. What about the high end stuff? The Lebron’s, the Jordans, and Air Force 1? Many times sneakers are just a status symbol. They are glorified by rappers, athletes, and everyday common folk, just trying to make a fashion statement. I will admit, I buy them. From time to time, I will plunk down a couple of hundred here and there for Jordan’s or Lebron’s. I am a fan of both players, and lucky enough to have seen them both perform.
When deciding the value of sneakers, top names like Nike, Adidas, Puma (which is attempting a comeback) and many more are always up there. More bang for the buck to put it bluntly. However, the Nike Air Jordan’s have taken and secured a place in the sneaker market that has created a frenzy for quite some time, and has no intentions of letting. With multiple releases during the holidays, the chances of getting a pair of these newest, latest releases at the retail price of about $200.00 is far and few in between.
Nike limits the sneakers, and the outlets like the Nike Shop, Nike online shop, Champs, House of Hoops, Foot Locker and others have resorted to a raffle system, that has left many scratching their heads for answers as they turn up empty with opportunities to get the sneakers desired.
Many including myself believe that the process is flawed. Calls are made with one or two rings, and then upon call back the phone number is not a workable number. In the eyes of the public this system leads to people abusing the system for friendships, and or personal gain. If you think wearing sneakers is just that, wearing sneakers, you are so wrong. It has become a big business, and I am a firm believer that it will not go away anytime soon in the land of capitalism. Good luck getting the sneakers on your list.
