Pick My Kicks!

Ok. Here is the deal. I need a new pair of running shoes and I have a gift card to Nike ID, which is Nike's website where you design your own shoes (among other things). I have already narrowed my choice down to a certain style and have made designed three versions that I think would be pretty cool. I want to know which you all think is the best. If you think they all suck, you can say that too. I don't know what other sort of background you might need on these...other than the fact that yes, I do plan on running and yes, I think that lymon color rocks the kasbah.

You can spend hours on this Nike website and it drains the life out of you after a while. The choices are endless! So yeah, what should I pick?

Option 1: Varsity Red, Shock Orange, and Flint Grey










Option 2: Dark Obsidian, Shock Orange, and Ice Blue









Option 3: Varsity Blue, Lymon, and Metallic Silver

Option 2. Option 1 was a bit too much for me. Option 3 seems a bit "girly". Option 2 looked pretty sweet.

Option 1 for the wife...
I think when I wasted hours of my life on Nike ID I designed something similar to option 1, and I still like it.

Option 2 is the best looking shoe. I agree wiht Luke...option 3 is girly and one is too much.

How does this work? Does "your wife"'s votes count for more than, say, mine? Can we vote more than once? I could write a script...

Definately #2 - I had the same thought that #3 was girly and the orange and the red together of #1 was very unappealing to me - I like the contrast of the blue much better.

Wow. I have been leaning towards 3 but you may be swaying me... I have a big affinity for Argentinian Blue (the color of the Argentine men's national soccer team) which is the color you call girly. Hmmm.

Other thoughts:
1. That script comment is pretty damn funny.
2. Carlee's vote counts for 1.
3. I have veto power but may not use it...

The gift giver votes for number 1 - the gray sole and shoe laces will never look dirty - choose wisely............

number 3 no doubt

Option 1 gets my vote, as it has a very masculine, yet stylish, look.

Go with whichever ones are New Balance and toss the Nike's in the shitter...
