For the Meteorologist Who Has Everything: Nike ‘Weatherman’ Shoes

wttg_weathermanshoes_cu holdingTucker Barnes, meteorologist for FOX owned Washington, D.C. station WTTG, is sporting a new pair of kicks.

While this normally wouldn’t make TVSpy, it’s s a slow news week AND the Nike Air Foamposite 1 Premium “Weatherman” shoes have a weather pattern on the outside. Take a closer look after the jump.

“Short story,” said co-anchor Allison Seymour. “Tucker wanted this weatherman shoe when it first came out. It’s taken, like, a year. But Santa finally got them to you.”

He showed the shoes off on set at 5:00 a.m. and wore them at 8:00 a.m. and told viewers, “About the shoes, I don’t know how much about them other than they’re going to take my weather forecasting to the next level.”
