Everyone is getting in the subscription service game these days. Even Nike, as they are in the midst of kickstarting one. You know. For kids!
Three things in this world will make you go broke fast: children, Nike sneakers and subscription services. Any one of our parental readers can tell you why the first one can be so expensive, especially when you factor in the consistent need of diapers, games, SUVs, child locks, etc.
Then, of course, we are all sneakerheads here, right? Well, I’m not, I haven’t bought a pair of shoes in four years and I’d like to keep it that way – I mean, how many sneakers do you need? Why I whole closet full of them? Sneakerheads can be maniacs. – but that’s beside the point. Point is I at least understand how a sneakerhead can spend millions and millions on shoes a year alone.
Then, of course, subscriptions are expensive. Especially for streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Showtime, HBO, etc. Stuff like that piles up all the time easily, monetarily speaking of course. It is really hard to keep up with all of those open streaming services and to keep them all active at once at that, even if it is cheaper than cable.
Now, imagine all of those things wrapped up into one. Well, you’ve got Nike’s latest business endeavor and the easiest way to break your pockets.
According to CNBC, Nike is looking to put their foot in (no pun intended) to the subscription service game and is going to do so by offering a subscription service for children called the Nike Adventure Club, which according to the report: “will allow parents to order shoes for their kids ages 2 to 10 either on a quarterly, bimonthly or monthly basis, paying monthly fees of $20, $30 or $50, respectively. The last option shaves off $10 per pair of Nike shoes purchased, with the average kids sneaker retailing for $60.”
That doesn’t sound cheap, but then again, neither do children, or sneakers, or subscription services. We’ll keep you posted on updates. For the Nike Adventure Club. Not for children, or sneakers, or subscription. Scratch that, you’ll get updates for sneakers. It’s a sneaker website, for crying out loud.
