Custom Nike Sneakers For PS2's Tenth Anniversary

When I was a kid, I sometimes saw classmates running around the schoolyard with Mario stickers on their sneakers. We kids in the '80s had a thing for stickers, you know...scratch 'n sniff, anyone? An "A" on your test wasn't worth anything without one of those!

Anyway, check out these bad boys: to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the PS2, Sony has teamed up with Nike to produce these snazzy Nike Air Force Ones, which are exceedingly rare. According to G4TV, these kicks boast "graident color bleeds on patent leather uppers and standard AF1 liners." There were less than 50 pairs made in all and Sony designed them to hand out to "company executives, media people, and other important members of society." If you'd like to land yourself a pair, break out the check book: they're up for auction on eBay, and the current bidding price is $2,135.00. ...sure, that's a little steep for a pair of sneakers, but hey, remember how our parents always thought $100 was a complete rip-off for the popular sneakers all the kids were wearing? This is a whole different deal, though; these suckers are definite collectibles. You wouldn't actually wear them; what are the chances that the pair you see in that auction will even fit you?

We've got an idea, though. Let's get all the PSXE readers together and make a pool of cash; everyone can donate just a few bucks and we'll go and buy the special Nike Air Force Ones and...uh...display a picture of them proudly on our site. How's that?

when that song came out 5 years ago or so, the one about stomping in my air force 1's, i thought it was a song about the president smoking pot...you know, "you'll never catch me smoking in my air force one". guess i was wrong.

HAHA! Well don't worry I believe you, cause I still have a sticker collection! Not like scratch and sniff strawberries or anything, but street culture stickers. Up until like last year I had my city plastered in FABI stickers :)

I kind of like it when they give away T-shirts with games like Grid. It's a neat little perk. But 2100 dollars for sneakers? No thank you.

I still have my Grand Turismo 3 A-spec key chain from way back too.

No, I would not pay for such things! I would buy a nice new Mac laptop if I had that kind of money to waste.
