Nike Air Foamposite Pro Asteroids

Here’s my first pair of Nike foamposites Pro’s: nicknamed Asteroids.  I never thought I would own a pair because they retail very expensive at $250 US.  You can blame Gentry Humphrey for the skyrocket price on retail because he took over the Hardaway line in 2012.  But like most of his awful leadership, after milking a sneaker line of terrible ideas and cheap quality, the hype dies and eventually the sneakers hit outlets.  That’s where I came in and was able to scoop this pair up for significantly less.
I’m not terribly in love with this colorway, but it is a foamposite and I figured I might as well see what all the hype is about.  Truthfully I don’t remember this model when it first released; and only became interested in it once I heard others talk about it on forums.  One thing I do like about this sneaker is how it’s built to last and how it molds around your foot over time; that’s pretty impressive for sneaker technology that is over 20 years old.  While (thankfully) Gentry is long gone, and the foamposite line has gotten back on track in prestige I’m still glad I was able to get this pair and experience a classic Nike sneaker firsthand.
Brand: Nike
Name: Nike Air Foamposite Pro PRM “Asteroid”
Year: 2013
Product Code: 616750600
Additional: Foamposite Pro models carries a Swoosh on the side, and lack Hardaway insignias.  This model was supposed to be part of the “Area 72” sneaker line that feature the Nike character RayGun.

NES Classic Edition Box variation

Here’s something I noticed this week; the final release box of the NES Classic mini is slightly different from the original release.  First, the golden “Official Nintendo Seal” has been moved from the bottom right corner to the left just above the red Nintendo logo.  Second the bottom right corner now has the ESRB rating label.  I’m not a hacker so I’m not sure if this final release NES mini console is different from the first batch.

Nintendo Switch Arcade

Here’s an idea that totally blew my mind; a mini arcade cabinet for the Nintendo Switch.  This custom made cabinet (which is now sold out) was made by ShigeryuShop on etsy.com.  I love this idea because I grew up going to the arcade as a kid, and seeing this NEO GEO really brings back memories.  I can’t even imagine how many custom themed arcade cabinets I would love to see.  For example; you have to have an original Donkey Kong (the one that started it all), Super Mario Bros., Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Marvel vs Capcom, etc.  And I’m sure Nintendo could also release a special arcade controller to add an even greater arcade feel.
