Anyone want to enter in a shoe draft?
It's in the Off Topic Forum:
It's in the off topic forum. It's a thing that we do, where we create a draft.
Here's the thread:
OK, this could be really nice.
The rules will be real simple, and much like many other drafts, the winner will be decided by comments from the peanut gallery as well as those participating.
1-you must pick the model and series of a shoe. For example, Air Jordan 1-25 could possibly be the first 25 pics. You cannot differentiate by colors, no matter how iconic the shoe (for example, you can't take red Air Jordan 1s in round one and then blue Air Jordan 1s in round two). Neither can you differentiate between low and high cut shoes (once someone, for example, takes Air Force 1s, you cannot later choose Hi-Top Air Force 1s).
2-you must choose shoes from at least FIVE different companies (All Air Jordans fall under the Nike umbrella, and G-Units under the Reebok umbrella, no using RBK and Jumpman as independent labels. This rule goes for all spin-off sneaker labels). companies who merged, yet are still sold as separate labels are exempt from this rule.
3-if you are not sure of the model, post a pic and a more knowledgeable poster will later help you out.
4-The draft will be 8 rounds, serpentine (someone please create one of those blue draft thingies, I don't know how). YOU MUST POST PICS OF YOUR PICK!!!!!!!!
5- your roster will look like this:
4-Cleat or spike (baseball, soccer, football, track and field etc...)
*'Open' slots are just as valuable as roster spots 1-4. Roster spots 1-4 are simply to guarantee a variety of footwear. You can fill the 'Open' slots in the first four rounds if you like and leave the cleats till the end.
I'll check back in 12 hours to see who is in and put forth a draft order.
EDIT: As a bonus round nine, we could all draft the wackest kicks possible, whoever comes up with the nastiest shit gets credit.
