This article in the paper cracked me up this morning! It's a very well-written, somewhat snarky* article. :p
CONVERSION: Origin as a basketball shoe is only a small part of the phenomenal sneaker saga
By the way, I'm sorry that my "No we're not" post didn't make much sense...I went back and reread it and realized I must have been more tired than I thought! It kind of rambled and got off-topic several times. So, for anyone who was able to make sense of it, good for you; and to everyone else, I'm sorry. I'll try to make sure I'm actually awake before I try to write! :D
*Firefox doesn't think snarky is a word. Ha!
