Foursquare Shoes Badge

All the other kids with their pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run to the nearest shoe store to check-in.  If you do, you’ll likely be awarded the brand new badge made just for those who frequent shoe stores: Kicks.

Hitting up venues with “Shoe Store” as the primary category will count toward earning this new digital trophy and users who earn it will see the following unlock text:

You’re not loafing around! There’s nothing wrong with spending half your paycheck on the latest Yeezys. Or Jimmy Choos, or Air Jordan Space Jams, or Marty McFly Air Mags… Just no Crocs, ok? Only Mario Batali can pull those off.

Maxwell Smart

I love the references to Space Jams and the Back to the Future 2 shoes worn by Marty McFly in the unlock text.  I didn’t have enough spare funds sitting around to win a pair of Mags in the recent charity auction…with my bankroll I’d be lucky to afford a pair of Get Smart rotary dial phone shoes.

This badge sounds like a good excuse to go shoe shopping!

Happy exploring!
