    The shoe pictured in the article is one butt ugly shoe; I donít think even clowns would find it funny enough to wear.

    I saw a kid at a school wearing some shoes like that once.

    Told him, "Man, that must have been a H#!! of a fight!"

    Yep, he fell for it and asked, "What fight?"

    I said, "Taking those shoes away from Ronald McDonald!!!"

    All of the adults were in tears laughing. He seemed hurt somehow....well, he seemed hurt after he had to think about it for a few minutes and slowly work out that it was an insult, and then the best he could come up with as a retort was, "Yo, Dawg! That ain't right!!!"

    I was going to say that, but feared it would be interpreted as political/racist. I have no doubt that our hard earned money is being used to purchase some of these shoes.

    This isn't new. Every once in a while this happens because of the rarity of shoes. I collect shoes, but never wait in line or would subject myself to that crap. I also have a job and am not nor have I ever been a welfare recipient. And yes your comment was insulting. Guess you just thought that signature was cute, not really worth following.

    Have you seen some of the outfits that young urbanites wear? These are some seriously messed up clowns!

    Just why do those people get so excited about a pair of overpriced sneakers??? Do they play basketball any better, or run (from the stop and rob store) any faster??? or draw in more customers to their turf???. If they worked for a living, they'd be a lot more careful how they spent their money. Since I'm probably paying for them, I hope they cause blisters.

    I have a feeling these kids come from the same parents who fight over the xbox during Black Friday.

    I got some like new Nike Air for $9 at Savers, so I could afford to pay the taxes they use to buy the latest craze. After the government checks bounce, they quit rioting and get a job, I'll see them in my line at Savers, too.
