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
