    He won't know if he can do 2 until he gets them in store and sees what sizes he has. He has to keep 1 of every size for release date. He can only hold pairs he has multiples of.

    Got into the Nike Adventure club.

    4 pair per year = $20 per month

    6 pair per year = $30 per month

    12 pair per year = $50 per month

    So the 4 and 6 are $60 per pair, which is basically retail for most toddler pairs. 12 is $50 per pair, so a little discount. Each pair comes in a custom box design with your kid's name on the actual box, so that's cool. You get an "adventure" with each one, whatever that is. Going to go with the 12 pair one and see how it goes. They have a pair of am90's on there that's not on the regular site and wife has been wanting them.

    I have a 3.5 month old and will start buying her shoes when she can walk. Feels like with Nike sales/FNL points I was thinking I could find certain styles for under 50 bucks, which is giving me pause. I do like the 6 pair per year, 30 per month option..DBL, I would assume you can change sizes at any time?

    You can catch just about all of the toddler pairs in sale for $30-40 in most cases. I'm only doing it for the Nike box with her name on it and to see what the "gear" is in the adventure kits. High odds I'll cancel after a month.

    Let's be honest, I'd pay $50 for a personalized AM1 box for myself.

    I joined the waitlist. I have a few other dumb subscription services that I should cancel that will come close to 30 bucks. I will probably try it for awhile as well.

    It's regular retail or a little less and it sounds like you get some extras with every order. Guess we'll see.

    Yeah I signed up and looked at the options, and it seemed like the AM 90s were really the only "cool" or unique shoe on there. If there were Jordans etc, it would be better. I could be wrong but I don't think a lot of the shoes offered retail for $60/pair. I'll stick to the occasional clearance Jordan retros for my littles.

    Yea wife and I noticed that too. You'd be paying more in the club for the shoes than you would off the regular site. I'll all depend on the extras.

    if you had to wear one sneaker for the rest of your life, what are you choosing?

    Rules:
    1. Can wear any color/version of that sneaker that you can buy, but you don't get unlimited access.
    2. Can change into a different sneaker for sport (i.e. don't have to pick a basketball/running shoe)

    So you want something that is comfortable, affordable, versatile, and has staying power (so they keep coming out with new pairs).

    I'd probably go ultra boosts with epic reacts a close second

    Ultraboost will probably be a popular choice, but I would worry they aren't as versatile as some of the lower profile sneakers

    Epic Reacts would be a no for me because I can see Nike dropping the line in 2 years, or merging it with something else

    If I'm wearing one sneaker the rest of my life I'm going comfort over everything. UB are still the most comfortable to me, and I can find a color way to wear with just about anything so it's a no brainer imo.
