Last month, Nike and Laika Studios unveiled the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘ParaNorman’ – a shoe designed for “weird” kids everywhere! All the shoes were given away via a Twitter contest in which the best ‘weird’ childhood photos would earn a pair of the shoes. Looks like your chances just opened once again; Nike and Laika Studios are auctioning off eighty pairs of the ParaNorman Foamposites in this amazing packaging, with 70% of proceeds going to the Born This Way Foundation. The Foundation was created in 2011 by Lady Gaga with the mission of empowering youth and embracing individuality – a perfect benefit for Norman, who holds unique powers himself! Check out the packaging and get yours bids in right now – the auctions run ’til Wednesday night!

hey u wanna flame a loser a*s reseller on instagram hit up this lame by the name of society_sole ...guy is one of the biggest(literally) POS resellers and thinks hes god cuz he got kids that d*ckride his bulls#!t and pay his ridiculous prices.
Nice presentation, nice packaging. All Nike products should be like this for the prices they charge and all the shit you have to go thru to get some of these shoes
I hope Nike go back to prehistoric period and be extinct. Doing this to your consumers depriving & discriminating them you owe it to your consumer that's why your on the roll Nike. Someday Somehow you'll get it...
I hate foams. I hate these shoes. I hate that deadstock seal. I hate resellers. I hate Boston, Mass. I hate Chief Keef, Pearl Jam, and Coldplay. I hate Milk. I hate the color orange. I hate the rain. I hate H Y P E B E A S T S! Let your hate begin.
What a minute this is some lady gaga shit? Mane the world has really taken a turn for the feminine. On that shit alone I would pass. I couldn't even imagine myself explaining to someone who asked about my kicks that "Yeah mane these are on the lady gaga tip" first it's wearing pants where your homie can peep out your asshole. Now the lady gaga air sole kicks for the dudes who want to impress other dudes with the fact that they paid 2 grand for some jumpers. It's like they want the next man to say player you're hot!!! lol... Let's face the facts here my dawg how many birds really know how much you dropped on your kicks? You dudes drop G's on kicks to impress other dudes it's that simple........Damn and shit was all good just a week ago lol.........
I'm fortunate that I won da twitter contest... Cuz I dam sure was willing to bid fa these... I really wanted then to wear. So dumb hype that I won a pair
I wish for once Nike would make an amazing shoe like this easy to attain. Ugh. I understand the Nike Mag being like $2,000+ but these for that price? A LeBron 9 Championship pack for $4,000 and now LeBron 10's are $315 standard? They're abusing their power.
Before eBay deleted everyones ParaNorman listing some sold for $5,000 and then some for $1,500 (same size). It would be interesting to see how much these would go for considering a portion would be donated.
I wish I would've won the contest, but I can't drop the money for this auction. I think it's great, and congrats to those who get.
@John2581 I WOULD SHAKE YOUR HAND LOL NO HOMO

@andysautosportcs funny cause Nike realses the same product every year with less and less quality and you'll Still cop
I HATE THESE LITTLE KIDS THAT SWEAR THEY KNOW EVERYTHING AND WANNA CALL OTHERS IDIOTS BECAUSE THEYRE BEING CALLED OUT ON BEING A LAME LOSER FOLLOWER.CHALK IT UP LOSER,YOUR A FOLLOWER AND YES APPLE SUCKS AND NO I AINT BUUYING THE WHOLE "FOUNDATION" BULLS#!T. SORRY TRY AGAIN.
@CC221 I'm not even remotely gay, I'm just not a bigoted little child like one of us in this conversation. Have a nice day 8D
@enhancedakuma The funny thing is that it's not just gay and lesbian. The foundation is about people who are bullied or are just different in the eyes of others. You don't have to be gay or a lesbian to be different. Ex:Emo kids or some one who wears different color wigs with purple pants to school and everyone starts picking on em. Or someone who is just bullied by another kid. You get the point. But when if the charity was for kanye west to raise money for a new lamborghini they would gladly do it.
@CheckMyDope @Dezfriednutz @mikeike He's ignorant because he won't get them JUST BECAUSE they are part of LGBT cause. Anything that you agree with that will keep rights from others is BS. I bet he's minority too, so its even more hypocritical.
