NIke Shoe Boxxxx Facebook App Treats Shoes Like Trading Cards

For Nike fans, perhaps nothing is sweeter than owning many, many pairs of Nike sneakers, and now, for those who want an extra way to "own" the brand's coveted shoes, there's the NIke Shoe Boxxxx. The NIke Shoe Boxxxx is a Facebook app that gives Nike sneaker-lovers the ability to swap and trade virtual pairs of Nike shoes.

While an interesting game, the Nike Shoe Boxxxx app is also educational -- users get to learn about every pair of shoe (its history, how it was made, etc.) they get in their collection. To start, each user gets three pairs of virtual Nikes, which he or she can trade with other players to earn points and more pairs of -- you guessed it -- virtual Nikes. According to Mashable, this might include rare Nike sneakers that aren't available to new players. What's more, players can organize, rearrange and customize the colors in their shoe box collection, as well as check out what other players are doing with their own collections.
