Monopoly Shoes

Monopoly GuyHasbro, the makers of the board game Monopoly and Reebok, those sneaker guys are teaming up to create a new line of Monopoly themed shoes.

This article reports that the sneakers will feature designs based on the Monopoly gameboard. So I guess, they'll have pictures of the properties or Free Parking or something on them.

That sounds good and I'm sure they'll sell well but they should have made a Get Out of Jail Free sneaker with a picture of the Monopoly Guy running.

Or another idea could have been to choose a few properties to model the shoes after. For example left foot is Park Place and right foot is Boardwalk. And when you're playing Monopoly and have all the properties of a color what can you do? That's right, you can build on it. Hasbro/Reebook could have sold jibbitz just like they do for Crocs shoes. Only these jibbitz would look like houses, hotels and game pieces.

An additional line of Monopoly themed sneakers will be released in November. So we can only hope that they take my advice.
