A guy walked past the Foot Action by the Garden and asks, "What are you guys doing here?"
One of the sneakerheads answers: "Waiting for the new Air Jordans." And shows him a pair of the shoes.
Guy says: "I don't get it."
Sneakerhead, with disdain in his voice: "We know. That's why you're over there."
Okay, I was never that big into shoes, let alone into Jordans. What really confuses me is how big a phenomenon this is. Just what in the hell do you need to do with $200 sneakers?? Unless they are truly going to make me play like Jordan, which they won't, what do they provide that I can't get with a pair of cheaper shoes that I can replace every 6 months or so?
Honestly, there is a list of priorities in life, and I don't think "fly ass kicks" are on that list.
