Just saw a commercial for a JO's Nike Shox Elite shoe... It looked really cool and had the 7 on it and all that. Prolly has the "J7O" on the back too.

The commercial was really funny, it had these german 'scientist' types sitting and arguing about why JO was somehow suspended like a statue in midair going to dunk.

It actually looked really cool, it was like a really good photo during a dunk contest or something.

The german guys were pretty funny though

I hope you all get to see this

I gots to get me those shoes!

I happened to walk into a Finish Line / FootLocker / whatever tonight. Those are some mighty fine looking shoes.

$120 or $130. Don't remember which. Either was more than I want to spend.

On one hand... yea thats alot of money.

On the other hand... I'm kinda proud that Nike is promoting JO for a shoe that costs that much...

Thats like Jordan prices.

Yay for JO!

Where'd you see it?

Worse comes to worse, you'd think they'd show it during Pacers games. Might wait until a national game, though. The first of which, I believe, is Thanksgiving.

I need new shoes, but I don't see ever paying that much for sneakers. With my luck, somebody would probably shoot me for them.

O'Neal will be featured on Finish Line's in-store signage along with the television commercial that airs on MTV, MTV 2, ESPN, ESPN 2, Comedy Central, BET and Spike beginning today, October 12.

The spot 'The Great Jump Debate' features two foreign scientists arguing over O'Neal's jumping ability and helps highlight that Finish Line is the only place to find the exclusive Jermaine O'Neal colors of Shox Elite basketball shoes.

The spot opens on a basketball court where Jermaine has been demonstrating his jumping ability to two Russian engineers. The engineers stand on the court below Jermaine while he is suspended in mid-air. During the commercial, the engineers speak in Russian, arguing about how he got up so high. One argues that it's obvious -- Shox Elite and its super-technology enabled O'Neal to jump that high. The other thinks that's the craziest idea ever -- it can't possibly be the shoes.

Ultimately, the engineers can't agree that it is the shoes. The commercial ends with a shot of the Shox Elite showing that home and away colors are available exclusively at Finish Line

Don't like the gold one, but the blue one is sweet.

Not for $120, though.

Any other sites beside Finish Line carrying these shoes because Finish Line doesnt ship outside the states. Can't really figure why they wouldnt wanna ship to Canada.

Oh I like those blue ones. Now if I can just convince my wife that I need to spend 120 bucks on a pair of shoes.

Bingo.

I could make an argument that I need a new pair of basketball shoes - the last pair I bought was Reggie's 1996 Olympic shoes, and after I had them for a while I realized they were a half-size too small and I hated them.

So I still wear my Barkley Air Force Max's in Phoenix Suns' Black/ White/ Purple when I occasionally get onto a court. :blush:

I find most athletic shoes on the market to be incredibly ugly, but I really like those. Won't spend that much money on them, however. I'll wait for Kegboy to get a pair and then shoot him. ;)

I think I am the only one who actually prefers the yellow ones...

Not sure why

They yellow ones ARE The ones JO Wears in the commercial however, and the looked really good with the pacers jerseys

According to Finish Line, here are the specs:

Nike Mens Shox Elite
Style: 309267 Color: 142

And the gold shoe is color 173.

A decade or so ago, when Nike's "style" number started with anything other than a "1", that meant the color combination was "exclusive" to that retailer. I haven't sold a pair of basketball or running shoes since then, so I don't know if that's still true or not.

IOW, I don't think you'll find this color combination at Footlocker, Galyans, or anywhere else. Eastbay has the same shoe, for example, in 12 colors, but not the Pacers' colors. (They do have a nice looking UCLA version, however).

omg really? How much are they going to be? this kinda sucks because JO's shoes now if you get a pair from him won't be as cool or rare. But still :)
I'm deff copping a pair...are they in all stores yet or just in indy? Can't wait to get up there :)
