Nike Shox R4 Shoes As a Way to Stand Out

For those folks out there who can't afford to put down big bucks on a chick magnet automobile like a Ferrari or a Mustang Cobra GT, there are other more subtle ways to get a little attention for a lot less buckage. One way that people can't do such is when they go out and use something like Nike Shox R4 shoes as a way to stand out in the crowd.

One thing's for sure; putting on a pair of these running shoes from Nike might not automatically help you win an Olympic gold medal, but they sure are a way to scare the heck out of people who might be thinking about taking you on out on the track or at a local running event. Besides all that, these shoes go really well with today's modern clothing styles.

Think about how many people have been spotted down on Manhattan's Lower East Side or out on Rodeo Drive over in sunny California's Beverly Hills area. There are probably more people than can be counted on both hands and both feet, right? One thing Nike has done well has been to bring what was once thought to be purely an athlete's set of shoes down to people who wouldn't dream of running even if they were being chased by a pack of Fifty Cent fans.

Nike Shox R4 shoes are one in a line of Nike products that prominently feature that big swoosh that has made the Nike brand famous even in Barack Obama's grandmother's Kenyan village. Turn on the television and put the channel on one of those programs that MTV runs about famous people's cribs for their hot rod cars and count up the number of Nike swooshes running around uncaged.

This number is liable to be fairly significant, and though it might say something about popular culture in one sense, Nike has absolutely no problem in making sure that even the most bling-filled denizen of a Los Angeles night club can also take those same shoes, lace them up really tight and get out there and duke it out on a 10 km road race. Certainly, a $1200 pair of alligator shoes can't do the same thing.

One might even say that Nike has so thoroughly permeated the social fabric - at least in the United States and other countries that have been affected by US pop culture - that it's almost a shock when you go into a store and the clerk doesn't recognize what you mean when you say "Show me the Swoosh." Of course, that clerk would have to be about 80 years old and slightly demented, but it could happen, right?

For all of that, technically-speaking, a pair of Nike Shox R4 running shoes are pretty much the be-all end-all when it comes to being able to hot foot it after a celebrity's limousine or when trying to run down some well-known person coming out of a boutique or salon for an autograph. Happily, someone like Mischa Barton probably has at least four or five pairs of these shoes in her own closet, so that's a conversation starter, right there.

All in all, it's kind of comforting to realize that some of our most popular celebrities and sports heroes are probably running around in the same pair of Nike Shox R4 running shoes that we can find when we manage to talk our old man into giving us the keys to the station wagon to head over to the mall to get a new pair of shoes.
