7. Their Opinions
The second a photo of a new sneaker (or a new colorway) appears on NikeTalk or Twitter or Instagram, the comments are sure to follow. Sometimes it seems like everyone with even a passing interest in sneakers feels the need to offer their opinion, even if it's based on one blurry iPhone photo of an unfinished sample that's 3/4 covered by a poorly Photoshopped tag. It's OK to wait, Ebert.
