Nike Men’s Air Max 90 Boot… why are they so freakin POPULAR???

Nike Men’s Air Max Focus Boot – Baroque Brown/Volt/Varsity Purple

Air MAX 90 BOOT from Eastbay

Price: 119.99

(Plenty of sizes and colorways to choose from on Eastbay and other sites as well.)

Other questions also arise such as why is it that Easybay calls these boots Air Max Focus? Then in the description explain that they are Air Max 90’s… or even worst the other colorways don’t mention Air Max 90 at all.

But that is not the focus here. The focus is why in the heck and all those who are hecked are these sneaker/boots so popular? Yesterday my post (Sneaker Freaker – AIR MAX 90 BOOT posted 05/05/07)  on the Air Max 90 boot seen on Sneaker Freaker was one of the top ten most popular post on my little blog here. I have no clue why it become so popular all of a sudden, but it did.

I have seen people around NYC wearing these sneaker/boots. Not too many but I have seen them. At first I though they were just Air Max 90’s, but then I realized the colorway was one I never seen before. Did a little research and behold; I discovered that there are a few more than nobody wearing these things.

Mostly I see highschool kids wearing them and out of the highschool kids that wear them they are mostly girls. Is it possible that this is a hit with the ladies but the men are just not goin’ there? I think I will have to wait until winter really kicks in to see.

Why don’t I like these sneaker/boots and the other ones that have come out? Because they just don’t work either way. They are obviously Air Max 90 but they don’t really look like boots. They look like high-tops, albeit really oddly shaped high-tops. It sort of destroys the classic look of the sneaker and adds a weird high-top slash boot look to it.

 Air Max 90 Boot - Air Max Focus?

I will admit that there is a attraction about them. Some of the colorways are pretty interesting and could work even on my large feet. I also never tried one on so I do not know how comfortable they are either. But even with all of that said,  over all they are just ok. 119.99 dollars is allot for a just ok Air Max classic.

    The Air Max 90 does add some variety if you have to a wear some type of boot to work. It gives a clean look but not as bulky as timberlands. I think it has appeal to many adults becasue they do have some basic colorways. I teach High School so I guess it is a good alternative during the winter months……

    I love this boots, I’m from London and they went down ok over here, few ppl had them, I tried a pair on once and was just amazed at how they actually came off once on, and fell in love with the colour I had, dark grey, turquoise and mouve. plus I had colors at home that matched to a tee, so when I wore them it was a good look, plus it looked like I had hummers on feet, if hummers where trainers, the air max 90 boot well be welcomed back if brought
