When I was a kid...this was in like 91...I was a huge Knicks fan. My mom got me a pair of Patrick Ewings. I was ecstatic. A few weeks of wearing them and to the back of the closet they went. I felt like Frankenstein, lol. Its funny because all the real heavyweights of the game made themselves legendary in things like Chuck Taylor's. You didnt need shoes that made you run faster or jump higher.


Lol right. I suppose in America it's normal practice to wear sneakers that look that big, but being born and raised in Europe most people wearing them look silly. Because they do look HUGE.

The only people I've seen pull it off are tall people.

May I say - your two comments on page 3 or 4 of this thread, one of which I am replying to are the most sense I have read in a long, long time - totally spot on.

Cheers

You're in a thread talking up male sneakers? Seems quite obvious, doesn't it.

Do you have something to add or are you just going to argue for the sake of arguing?

That's not the majority of the USA. That is inner-city ghetto America.

When I heard this I wasn't surprised. This world has completely lost it!

It seems people only care about material possessions anymore.

I wonder how many of these people would break a door down to save someone they loved?

This is one of the MAIN reasons I do NOT celebrate Christmas...


It's a damn shoe!!

What is so hard to understand?



When basketball was invented in Canada
the game was a challenge... Today they recruit tall people that make the game look ridiculous and take the challenge away. Why not raise the nets to make it a little more challenging? Looks silly to me... and whats with the hanging on the nets like monkey's anyway?

I'm fairly certain he posted that picture just because the shoe size is exaggerated, which is what I was talking about.


That... yes
Though the overly huge afro did help with the clown impression

Not really, I lived in the ghetto most of my life and the suburbs a short part of it. The ghetto is really like a jungle, everyone of EVERY race that lives there and has totally different mindset of any suburban wanna-be. Ghetto is a mindset due to the living environments and culture. No suburbanite can act it because they truly don't know it. Maybe "imitate" the clothes and talk, but not the actions or mindset of the ghetto people.
