Prepare yourselves for a rant guys. The Nike Flight Posite embodies what I find wrong with sneakers today. Reason one: price, retailing at 210.00 these sneakers are unbelievably overpriced. Sure, sure they have the foamposite material and yeah, yeah I know it's expensive to manufacture. However, with shoes like these, the regular foamposites, and the Lebron 11s making the push with foamposite material...what's next? A $300.00 retail? I honestly would not be surprised at this point. Well, if reason number one wasn't enough here's a second: these color ways are hideous. I'm sorry if you like these shoes but in my personal opinion I don't want to walk around with what looks like two pennies on my feet; especially when those pennies cost me 210.00! I do like the zip-up tongue, it provides for a sleek look along with the copper finished upper, but come on folks these colorways have got to improve if I'm going to be dropping two benjamins and change on them. With a the clear gummy outsole I would probably consider buying these if they had a sensible retail price around 120.00, but until then I'll be putting off my foam purchases for a while.
