Random Ridiculousness

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Nike is selling sneakers called “Nike Trash Talk” made from 100% trash for $100. The shoes are made up of scraps and manufacturing waste from the factory floor:

“ We were really looking for a ‘here and now’ solution to footwear waste, and creating a performance product using waste materials felt like a very innovative solution. Using Nike’s Considered design ethos we were able to create a shoe that stands up to the stringent on-court performance requirements but is also more environmentally friendly.”

Damn we’re all for the idea of eco-friendliness, but damn $100 for some trash? They could have at least lowered that price a bit.

    The point of recycling your waste is to be eco-friendly, NOT to make a quick buck. Nikes have been way overpriced since the mid-90’s so while it angers me, it’s somewhat expected.

    if it was the trash look they were goin for MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

    $100 Dollars isn’t bad……It just helps the economy and avoids the recession a little more =) And I am all for that.

    Nike is a greedy a$$ trip. They are not going to stop until people boycott their greedy a$$es. How the hell do they put a $100 price tag on waste materials? I’m fed up with them. Really.

    Huh? Nikes aren’t made in America. What the hell are they doing to help our economy? Putting out shoes we can’t afford so that we can’t buy anything else doesn’t help the economy.

  • RIP Omar

    @Bird

    Actually it does help the economy even though they are not made in the US. The more we import from China or wherever the better, because we owen them so much money

  • Don King

    @ Knotz, make sense to me bro.

  • igetIT

    It doesnt matter how they make the shoes. As long as they’re fly. But the those are far from fly.

  • igetIT

    Nike should just keep it simple. All the hottest sneakers right now are retro anyway.

  • da darkness

    i luv zoom airs the cushioning in the shoes are incredible like those first penny’s, oh my. even the tongue was mega cushy. pattern was crazy and the colors smooth as can be. @nike get it together nike golf can’t be your only life boat.

  • I'm Just Me

    I guess that is a really optimistic way to look at it. You are obrviously more positive than I am. All I think about is how the US manufacturing industry has been virtually eliminated so that they can ship our jobs over to countries where they can underpay workers and even employ children and STILL charge us top dollar for their crap which we can’t afford because we can’t get a job because their are no decent paying jobs. Factory workers used to make decent money. Where are they working now that factories are being shut down all over the place.

    Sorry but I stand by my original statement. Greedy a$$ Nike can kiss my a$$.

  • capt'n backslap

    lol but yall will pay 100 for a knockoff LV or coach bag!Where you think those scraps come from???SMH

    Being Green or organic isnt cheap. Why you think Hybrid cars and organic foods cost more than regular products???

  • RIP Omar

    @Bird

    I agree with you on the jobs need to stay in the US. But cheap labor is the american way, how else are business owner going to make a profit. Why pay an American worker $15 an hour when you can pay a worker overseas a dollar an hour
