If you’ve ever dreamed of having the world’s most wanted terrorist at your feet, now’s your chance of making that dream a reality, with the Osama Bin Laden sneakers.

These wacky shoes, featuring a caricature of the famous Osama Bin Laden, and a line that ( I think) says ” I look at you killed”. That doesn’t make much sense to me either, but you have to understand the sneakers are made in China, the country that brought us famous brands like Juma, Badidas, Mike, and other such abominations.

Chinese merchandise is very popular in India, due to its low prices, but these Air Bin Ladens have become a phenomenon, among the country’s youth. 21-year-old Praveen Kumar says “It gives me a feeling that the most hated person in the world lies at my feet.”

You have got to be kidding me

People will exploit anything, and the fact that these come from China, me is a mockery. Although, the 21 year old kid in the story says he likes the most hated person in the world at his feet. Still, Air Bin Ladens....really?

I'm gonna stock up on these babies !

Imagine how much they'll be worth when he's dead ? Enough to fund a life of luxury in Shebangabang

That's hilarious. first thoughts that those purchasing these trainers are actually fans of him...but reading the quote...I get the idea.

Having Laden at your feet? Feeling like your walking all over him? That's pretty cool...although I rather suspect this will lead to many people believing that those who wear these are supporters.

lol, that depiction of OBL looks a bit like the terrorists in Team America - World Police

When will people learn that OBL is Emmanuel Goldstein?

So are we done with the "2 minutes hate"now?

The Major has no user for OBL sneakers, but the Major loves his toilet paper.

The Major never goes into the field without it.

Where can I buy a pair?

I agree with the guy who said he likes the idea of having Osama at his feet. Too bad a cartoon of him isn't on the sole!

This is way better than even having a chance to hurl a shoe at him!

Bin laden is already dead, but the cia does collect royalties on the sales indirectly.
BIn laden has been a good asset for the cia even when he has been used to attack the U.S.
Now the cia can flood the world with opium and fun the other black projects.

Its pretty sick how the cia works but that is the nature of the beast.

HAHAHAHA "Air Bin Ladens".

This is too funny. The Chinese are too much sometimes.

I wonder if they make you run through mine fields faster or render the wearer un capturable?

Do Queda terrorists even wear sneakers themselves? They wear dirt cruisers and sandals only. Maybe they will get a taste of capitalist society and fall in love with these? The perfect gift for all your smelly jihadist friends.
