    I don't know what's worse Transformers that are disguised as shoes or shoes that are disguised as transformers

    ...wonder if they come in my size >_>

    I don't think these are meant to be kiddie shoes. There's a very big demand for special/limited edition sneakers like these out there. Do a Google search for "Nike Air Force 1" and prepare to be amazed at the diversity and prices. Just down the block from where I work there's a specialty store and the average price for a pair of kicks is $250. There’s a whole culture of sneaker fanatics/collectors out there and I think people will be eager to pick these up.

    Honeslty, I would wear them. They're bright, colourful, show off my TF interest and look stylish. I can't wait to see the Decepticon ones.

    I love Nike, but those shoes are awful. If they were a different color, maybe they would be more appealing, but as of right now I don't see them making their way out of K-mart/walmart and into a store like Foot Action or Foot Locker.

    Guarantee these will be somewhere around $140 and will come nowhere close to any of the stores you've mentioned.

    I'd be really surprised we see these at common shops like Foot Locker and the like. I think these will go straight to speciality shops and online stores.

    Stores like Flight Club, Pick Your Shoes, SneakerHead, Proper, etc.

    There's a considerable amount of people who are Transfans AND sneakerheads too,

    In addition, the Air Trainer III one of Nike's more popular Retro shoes

    'ugly' or not these will sell at least fairly well.

    Will there be Megatron shoes, too? I am going to get transforming Nike Megs so the Megs Nike would be cool. Matching shoes with my TF, you know. I'm sorta serious, though I only buy cheap shoes normally :D
