Movie ticket prices have risen to a point where making a hundred million dollars means you had a good weekend, so while raking in $124MM worldwide on a budget less than half that is a sweeping success in any business, Coraline didn’t break any records with its 2009 release. The Laika-produced film was favorably reviewed by critics and even if a hundred and one minutes of eye candy starring a curious young girl isn’t your cup of tea, the Henry Selick flick will resonate with sneakerheads for some time, as the special edition Dunk High released in limited numbers in conjunction with the box office debut remain a premium item on the resale market and one photo of its buttoned build stands alone at number 1 in Google Images’ results for the word “sneaker”.
Following up on all of that won’t be easy, so luckily, the latest effort from the Phil Knight-founded film house can call upon not only a gifted title character, but also what’s arguably the most coveted silhouette in the sneaker game today. The ‘ParaNorman’ Nike Air Foamposite One is limited to 800 pairs and won’t be sold in stores, but instead, given away to Twitter followers who best personify the hashtag #WeirdWins in their photo submissions. There’s still time to rummage through your old photo albums to find a suitable shot to send in, and in any case, don’t be camera shy because we have some dope new shots of the ‘Paranorman’ Foamposites’ smokey neon soles after the jump below.

LIKE I SAID BEFFORE I'M GOOD WITH MY NEO-LIME FOAMPOSITE!!! FOR THAT YOU DO A CUSTOM ON YOUR..... OHHHH LET ME HOLD THAT THOUGHT, AS I POST THIS COMMENT SOMEONE IS IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING ONE NOW!!!
5k for these nope not worth it, these reselling prices are crazy, the average man cannot afford a 5k asking price and i dont see it worth being 5k. they're not even out yet and people already got these marked up way beyond market value. like serious the limited sneaker game is messed up, they should just ask entertainers, athletes and the mega rich to buy these not the average joe.
I agree they are dope and limited but no where near the money people are asking. Dumbass see "only 800 pairs" and think that the shoe is automatically 4K more. Please when all this hype dies down in 3-4 years you want see shoes on ebay for beyond rape prices.
5000 dollars for sneakers? limited or not, that's bullshit!!
let me break it down, 5000 dollars = 450,000 kenyan shillings (Kenya is a country in east africa). thats enough to put me through 4 years of university. enough said.....
Heat…. too bad though. I don't mind paying $300-$600 or even a grand in rare instances aftermarket for kicks. But when ya'll start talking 5-7 grand for kicks, go fuck yourself on GP #realtalk.

@dopeman978 they are not releasing in stores or online and are only 800 pairs made, the only way to get them is from twitter.....5k is outrageous but considering how other shoes reach crazy prices its somewhat understandable
Chruch! For example is anybody "really" impressed when they see someone in galaxy foams? Don't get me wrong, i like them still, but i'm not paying those crazy prices. I think most sneakerheads collectively said "GO FUCK YOURSELF" to re-seller's on that one.
@So_Gee_I_Be Ha! $5,000 could barely pay for books, yet alone a semester in the US.
yea i know kid, but still resellers asking 5k for them is smoking serious crack! those who get these i am pretty sure they will be flipping these.
@IgotthatFIRE Yep, and all for a shittier education. This country's a laughing stock.
@dopeman978 I know i definitely will, foams are corny
@Facsimile @So_Gee_I_Be You know whats so funny about you foreigners? You talk all that shit about America knowing you can't make it without America. Do you really think you will go anywhere with a degree from Giraffe University in the USA? LMMFAO! And punjab, you talking shit? Go home and jack-off in a cave to your 72 imaginary virgins.
@Facsimile Yea! You get a gold star! You pointed out my typo! You should feel so proud of yourself! Now that you feel all warm and fuzzy inside... go fuck yourself in the ass with a rusty knife get tetanus and die you self-congratulating faggot.
@IgotthatFIRE Also, it's "let alone," not "yet alone." I suppose that further illustrates my point.
