Full disclosure: I'm far from a Sneakerphile, so I don't get the madness that ensues when a new pair of kicks is released. I'm totally ignorant on the subject. However, I do now that these new Nike Foamposite Galaxy sneakers are causing people to lose their minds. First, there were near-riots in Orlando last night at a Foot Locker that was scheduled to release the sneaker. Then, someone with big goals put a pair of the sneakers on eBay for $70,000, and another person using craigslist offered to trade his car for the shoes. Meanwhile, Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes casually Tweeted the picture above Friday afternoon with the message, "@CC_Sabathia pumped about his new kicks like a little kid #sick." We wonder if CC will throw them on eBay for $70,000?
"I can't believe how crazy this has been. It was on the news in Port Charlotte [where the Rays have spring training] and on the front page of the sports page. I'm mostly amused at how everyone is acting like this is breaking news. It's old news to us considering we met a while ago. It's not like it was a secret. Other than you, no one else had asked us about it until now. I remember sitting next to him in the car when he was taping your podcast (which reminds me, you still haven't invited me to be a guest on your podcast!) and you sending me a message asking if you can write something about us in Hot Clicks. I guess people were bound to catch on eventually, but I do appreciate you keeping it between us for as long as you did! By the way, maybe you can hook me up and make me the LLOD, for old times sake!"
