galaxy foamposite trade for car Man Seeks Trade: Used Car For Galaxy Foamposites

Some sneakerheads have a strict policy when it comes to sneaker trades: brand new for brand new. But what if you throw in a very-near-deadstock…car? We already know about the massive camp-outs and Nikestore backing out of the Galaxy Foamposite online release, but based on this recent trade proposal made by a sneakerhead located in the five boroughs of New York City, we can sum up with this famous quote from Bad Boys II: #$%& just got real. With the Galaxy Foamposites proving to be one of the toughest pick-ups in recent memory (perhaps reaching that level of Pigeon SB Dunk pandemonium), it’s time to up the ante if a retail pick-up is no longer a viable option, but offering up a tangible good known for its miles-per-gallon might be stretching it a bit. What makes this trade proposal a bit more humorous is that the car’s overall appeal exudes that ‘Galaxy’ motif thanks to the purple paint job and blue Chevy logo, but here’s the real question – would you trade your Galaxy Foamposites for four wheels and a steering wheel? This is about as interesting of a debate we’ll ever see, so check out the full listing below and let us know your thoughts. via CL

“Looking to trade my car, 96 chevy cavalier for a pair for galaxy foamposite size 10.5. Yes car for sneakers. Car will come with a full tank of gas also. Nothing fake about this deal. You give me your pair of galaxy foamposite size 10.5 and i give you my car, keys, clean signed tittle and ill even the bill of sale filled out already. And ill even drive to you. The pictures is the actual car. Picture was not photoshop or enhanced in anyway. It was taken with my cell phone also.
I use the car to drive me to work everyday since i bought it. Nothing wrong with it. I bought the car from the original owner in Oct of last year. He never smoke and i dont smoke so the car is a smoke free car. It has an alarm in it a 10 disc cd changer, anti lock brakes, power locks, air conditioner and interior is clean. call or text me xxx-xxx-xxxx”

Them sneakers are ugly. Im a sneakerhead but I dont give a fuck about them hypes. Im only getting Kicks I like. Dont understand all these fake sneakerheads buying sneakers they actually think are ugly. In Europe these sneakers will be found easily and not even that expensive. It's only in The States that prices go sky high and people camp out for a week. Whenever a sneaker comes out I want My size is put on the side and shop is empty when I go pick them up. It helps off course if a friend owns a shop with a good Nike account. But this guy is loco. I would never trade my car for sneakers. If I cant get a pair then so be it.

These people have no idea how they are ruining the sneaker market by driving up the prices. Pretty sad. soon kids wont be able to get their hands on a pair cuz the resellers keep snagging them up....

I'm getting fed up with all the hype around these Foams! Yes, they are cool and I would like to get a pair, but... trading a car for them??? Camping for a week in front of a store??? And Nike canceling online orders a couple of days before the release??? This is getting out of control, it's getting more and more difficult to cop a nice pair of sneakers... Nike has to stop this, it ain't cool to treat us, consumers, like that. Not to mention one thing: I'm seeing people getting robbed and stabbed for these, it would be safer to rock a gold and diamond Rolex watch on your wrist than the Galaxy's on your feet.

These shoes are fresh. No doubt. BUT I do not want to be associated with a group of people that are willing to pay over a grand for a pair of shoes. A PAIR OF SHOES. Nike is just watching this-- they are learning that they can charge more and more for their products. A lot of cats have been saying that it's not going to change unless the community comes together and does something about it, and they are right. Hopefully you do. Just looks bad. It's really immature, short sighted, and just plain foolish. What about paying for a college education? retirement? saving for your children? Is paying over a G for a pair of kicks helping you achieve your long term goals and dreams? This frenzy has encouraged me to walk away from the game. Peace...

Haa ..walk away from the game ! Nigga you gonna be lined up in like 3 months tryna get sum Js or somethin !!! GTFOH wit that bullshit tyrna be all high and mighty !

i would do this trade in a heartbeat! a pair of shoes for a car!! u can always hook the car up and all of that, plus it has 10 disc cd changer so the smart person would do this trade. many people out there need rides!

Stupid. Stores need to limit 1 pair for sneaker releases. Give people more of a chance to get there pair and reduce resellers. Other than that, these shoes are whack IMO. Never been a fan of foamposites, but this galaxy BS is ugly as eff! I'd rather save my 200+ dollars on better looking heat.

Shit crazy if I dnt get em, it wouldn't bother me none. I just get a rush off seeing everyone else go crazy over shoes.

The smarter person will be the one that trades his Galaxy's for the car.

No, the car sucks. If he was trading the shoes for a Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Honda, and it was from the last 5 years or so then that would be a ridiculously good trade for whoever traded the shoes. But a piece of junk from 1996 is just that.

I wouldn't trade galaxies for that bucket, nobody looks good stepping out of a 96 purple cavalier but anybody can look good with those foams on their feet.

Id rather have the kicks. The worst thing now with all this hype from these kids is that ppl will see you with these on and just know you are a hypebeast that prolly paid extreme reseller cash for. Whether you did or didnt. Im just glad i dont live in the US, my local gets these, and we'll have like 10 people rock up at the store open time, easy cop. No stabbings, no end of world apocalypse style behaviour. No sitting on the streets for a week in the cold like a bum. Its great.

Who else remembers when the galaxy mock-up came out and everybody said they'll sit and wont sell at all?

Yes
Yes

Well I was one of those people, simply because the first samples shown looked like gay rainbow cotton candy vomit and the retail pair looks like a real dark galaxy purple Ugh I'm tight I won't have a chance to cop I have $250 to spend but no where to find em.. Oh well

That was probably before..."these will only be sold at"... and "they are limited to"... lol. Your typical sneakerhead these days is such a cliche.

The Chevy Cavalier is a horrible car. Anyone who would think about doing this trade, don't. I drove one of these in driving school, and it's the most cheaply made piece of crap ever produced by GM.

Man don't project your issues with your mom onto me. You probably hopped on the bitch every night doin your incest thing before she died in a freak crack smoking accident. Fall back, young'n, you're not about this shit. You're nothing.

Now you know good and well that if you could get the foams you would do this trade because that cavalier is faster and more enjoyable than that 10 speed you have.
