SNEAKER WARS MARBURY CHALLENGES JORDAN $174.98 vs. $14.98

AIRJORDAN ON THE RUN

It’s about Time

let the Battle begin

IF it is a Battle

IF your Momma didn’t raise

NO Fool are you going to Waste

$160 for NOTHING

except making Nike Richer

along with His Airness

OKOK we know the Game. Kids and Others who shouldn’t buy AirJordan’s because the Great Marketing Machine has convinced far far too many that wearing them makes a Statement. Sets them Apart. Suckers Apart.

Well guess what

Along comes New York Knicks Point Guard Stephon Marbury ( and whoever advises him most likely ) from the Hood his being the asphalt courts and housing projects of Coney Island, Brooklyn, where he grew up – and Stephon is going to make a run at making CHEAP Cooool …….

Imagine that

NOT getting ripped for

for OVER priced Sneakers

being COOL

And what a price difference $174.98 for the Top of the Line Jordans ( best price on line ) versus $14.98 for the TOP OF THE LINE Marbury’s AND JUST LIKE THE PRESIDENT OF THE HAIR CLUB FOR MEN WHO SELLS HIS HAIR PIECES ON TV Stephon Marbury will be his own client wearing the $14.98 shoes on the Hardwood playing for the Hapless Knicks this season.

How about that

While Michael Jordan who has been using his “fame” to rip off impressionable kids and even older fools for years and years with his sweat shop sneakers made in Southeast Asia to be sold in America he is hopefully about to get what he deserves a Sneaker Licking at the hands of Stephon Marbury.

Imagine if this becomes a Trend

Successful talented well known African American athletes making another Bundle for themselves using their name and fame to market quality products at low prices. Maybe there is hope for Planet Sports after all. All though Marbury might be nothing more than a small flame flickering in an over priced sky.

Since nobody has

Test Driven

Starbury Ones yet yes it is premature to crown them the new King of Sneakers. But the Reality is decent sneakers can be produced for almost nothing in cheap labor countries. Sneakers are like soda in their own way.

Soda being nothing more than a heap of sugar, some artificial flavoring and coloring and LOTS of water. Almost ALL the cost of that can of soda is in the marketing cost convincing you that useless, teeth and stomach destroying, diabetes producing junk is GOOD for you. Even Sexy ! Even Healthy !!!

When it comes to Sneakers

another Hype Product

head over to

Steve & Barry’s Sportswear

THINK ABOUT IT

the most you have to lose is

A Hike with his AirJordans

off a Cliff into the Abyss
