The new Nike Air Max 3 is bringing bling back to shoes. Bling, you were sorely missed.

The Nike Air Max 3 is probably out of my price range. I can't afford golden-colored anything at this point in my life, but I still want these shoes. The biggest baller on the court can now be easily identified, thanks to these shoes.

Implications - Though athletic apparel and street style have both always been associated with a lower price range, its popularity has catapulted pieces from this fashion segment into haute couture territory. Stars like Kanye West have made it cool to dress with urban flair, resulting in a higher demand for pieces such as jeans, exclusive sneakers and athletic apparel.
