The place to talk about the Florida State Seminoles
The place to discuss general topics outside of Florida State
You have no favorite boards.
I was already working on these before the NIKE FSU sale fiasco last week.
I built about 20...these are a few examples....
I ordered 4 different, one for each family member
Positives: Completely customized; you can put your names on them (I put my kids nicknames on them)
Negatives: Not cheap....cost range from $130 to $175
Notes: The "garnet" is NIke university red. So it will come out more on the red side; However, IMHO if you surround the red with more black, it tends to make the red look darker.....
Images were too big...working on it now
Ok I suck at trying to resize...so here is my photobucket account....first 10 pictures....if someone has the time and wants to try posting directly to the thread....have at it....
The "Nole Mercy" rendition is my favorite there. Many of them look more like Maryland colors though and I don't think would fit exactly. I would think you could use actual gold instead of yellow, but I doubt Nike would be doing that or you'd have already chosen it...alas.
Cool shoes but I want to come hang out in the man cave lol. That is effing sweet man. You may be my hero.

Bear, was there no option for vegas gold on nikeID?
Shoot me a PM on here please.
It took me 2 years to build the mancave.... the screen (which I built) is 136"...the two TVs on either side are 50" and they can fold back into the walls which I do on Sunday nights which is family movie night....if anyone is interested I can post more details but the room is basically a sound studio with over 2000 sq ft of sound absorption material, Helmholtz resonator, acoustic panels. corner traps and a diaphragmatic resonator stage so I can go from serious movie theater to party room in about 10 seconds....
I obvously host some big weekends when FSU is on the road and I am not going...but the real deal was last national signing day....we had a stacked room at 10 a.m....4 TVs going, 4 internet screens....people started passing out around 2 and the last cab came and I poured the last fan (a buckeye) into it at 6. We obviously are doing it again on Feb 6th...
Shoes....yea the colors are not a perfect match. I am getting a pair of the FSU cleats (from FSU) but I cant wear them on game day.... I do like the Nole Mercy ones...the other family members picked other colors....even if they dont match perfectly, I have been trying to get some game wearing shoes for two years...should be interesting when they get here...
No phen, I even got someone on the line with me from the evil empire (NIKE) and the old Metalic gold was no longer available...in fact the Prime Time shoe was the only shoe that even had that color gold and that was with an upgraded leather option....don't you have Nike contacts? Tell them they are leaving a boat load of cash on the table with the lack of shoes and gloves NOT for sale...l.
That is really odd, FSU's Nike color scheme is Maroon/Vegas Gold, I am surprised that option is not on the ID website.
dude....that mancave....serious business. i think i love you
Phen: On the NikeID website you can pull up shoes and each show has a different color palet...some dont even offer a red type color...each shoe has a different swatch of all colors available. There is approx 10 to pick from on each shoe. The red on most is University Red which is the only color that is a bit off for FSU...which I why I ordered the one with mostly black.....there was one shoe that had a crimson color but that was it.... the "gold" on the shoes actually matches somewhat closely Pantone bright gold (78043c) which is one of the official colors of FSU when Metallic Gold is not offered.
For anyone looking for official FSU colors, you may want to save the link below...It took me a LONG time to find the colors...mainly because I searched for official colors or swatches.... The name you are looking for is official Pantone Colors... I also have the glidden paint colors saved...the man cave has both the Garnet and metallic gold on the walls....very very close match.
and while I am think about it...after 8 months of searching....Joanne fabrics has a color called bicycle red in a few different materials that is VERY close to our official pantone and is what is on my walls.... The also have an acoustical fabric (allows sound to flow through uninterrupted)... You should have seen all the women staring at this idiot who was picking up fabrics, putting them to their mouth and trying to lightly blow through them to measure resistance!
