So if you know even the tinest little thing about me, you know I have a serious shoe purchasing problem. And even with my new limit on buying stuff after a disaterious weekend in Hong Kong netted me TWO new cameras, I went over to the opening of the NIKEiD Studio opening in Shanghai (one of 5 worldwide! with New York, London, Paris and Osaka) and took in the official party.
The concept of NIKEiD is pretty simple - you become a shoe designer, taking Nike shoes and introducing your own color blocking and adding in the PE touches like a name or number or in some cases logos. The NIKEiD Studio in Shanghai has some added touches like being able to work with a design consultant, being able to work in a cool private studio where you can take a look around for inspiration and actually look and feel the materials and fabrics and leathers that you are choosing for your shoe. It's quite cool.
So even though the NIKEiD Studio prices are quite a bit more than they are using nikeid.com in the States, I went in on Saturday and designed a couple of shoes.
Somebody's really got to stop me from buying all these shoes. Seriously.
