I got this pair from a Finish Line sale for $69.99.
These Nike 360's used to sell for more than $120+ if my memory serves me right and the moment I saw them on the shelf with a sale price tag, I immediately asked for a pair of size 9’s and tried it on and the next thing I knew I was paying the cashier with my hard- earned money, my budget be damned to add to my ever growing collection of shoes.
Don’t get me wrong, though, but there’s not a single trace of the Imeldific blood in me but I surely have a collection of rubber shoes, but many of them were "finds" on various sales (e.g. Thanksgiving, Day- after Christmas, etc.). I am a conscientious bargain hunter you know or akala ko lang yata. LOL
The only time I bought a pair of shoes which was not on sale was when I got a black Jordan XXI for $119.00 which I have been using lately for basketball scrimmages in a local school gym with Pinoy friends every Monday and Wednesday nights here.
Anyway, I got the “new” one with the intent of using them in a Basketball tournament sponsored by a Filipino- American Association here in Michigan.
But as things turned out I never got to use them for I only managed to play one game (for which we won whether it's because I played or not will be subject to approval with my teammates) due mainly to conflicts in my work schedule and so the pair that was made famous by the notorious NBA Legend Sir Charles Barkley and now being endorsed by the high- flying Amare Stoudemire of the Phoenix Suns remained in the box until…
I decided on a trip to New York City to watch some Broadway shows and brought them with me just in case I would need comfortable and reliable rubber shoes in my adventure that would entail a lot of walking which I am not sure if my Plantar Fasciitis- ravaged feet could handle.
Sure enough, I found myself using them most of the time except of course during some formal events where I have to wear my leather Florsheims.
Anyway, the rubber shoes and its air soles/shox/cushion carried me all over the big city without my feet complaining from the non- stop assault of roaming the concrete jungle that is the Big Apple from 8 o’clock in the morning until the wee hours of the next morning for 5 straight days.
I have no complaints whatsoever, the Nike 360 is as good as advertised even outside the hardcourt.
These shoes are really made for basketball err walking, in this case.
