There's a sucker born every minute. And the biggest ones are those who have money than their simple minds can contend with.

Pay a lot of money to stick your stanky feet in personalized shoes. I'm impressed.

warms my heart to see them in their pricey custom sneakers when the world is in a financial crisis!

find it wonderful that they have them made in 3rd world countries by little kids -mostly for pennies a day!
keeps the kiddies from total starvation I guess

while there is barely any manufacturing in the US and job loss will be reaching an all time high soon because of the global recession if someone doesn't come up with something fast!

sick of seeing excesses and conspicuous consumption by most of the so-called famous people that they want us to emulate so they can make even more money

remember years ago the big broo-haha when Kathie Lee Gifford's factory gals hadn't been paid and her & hubby Frank flew there to personally pay them

why isn't there an outcry about the Nike's of the world and the Michael Jordan's of the world making millions hawking merchandise made in 3rd world countries

just don't get it myself

give your kids a good strong identity and education and they won't be sucked into all this crap

Paul Newman had products-made in USA and ALL the profits were spent on specific charities in the US
he had the right idea
it's not what they rich can by with their money
it should be about how their money can best help those in need
love to see the income taxes of all the rich folk and what they give to charity!

think we'd be embarrassed for them and not hold them in such high regard if we knew how little it really is in most cases!

AN EMBARRASSMENT OF RICHES

IF THERE REALLY IS A GOD-WHAT MUST HE THINK OF THEM
AND WHAT THEY DO/OR DO NOT DO FOR THE "LEAST OF US" AS THE BIBLE TELLS US TO

remember verses like "when I was hungry, you fed me, when I was naked, you clothed me" etc.
can't remember it all precisely since Sunday School days were many moons ago-
but the point is that anything we do for those less fortunate is like doing ti for Jesus

so while you see photos of little Haitian children-the poorest country in the western hemisphere- starving to death because of the devastation to the island from hurricanes etc. think how the price of1 pair of these custom sneakers could probably be the difference in life or death to that child

do what you can within your own financial limitations-even if it's only a quarter
teach your children that there are many people worse off than us and no matter how poor we are-we can always give a quarter
and maybe someday if we have more we can give a bit more
and I'm not heavy into religion

Fat Joe looks ridiculous in sneakers. It would be far more appropriate for a man his size to be wearing custom slippers. We all know Fat Joe doesn't exercise.

I just threw up in my mouth seeing the side of Kanye's face. There isn't a soul in this world that I hate more than the no talent Kanye West. GOD....how is he famous? It's disgusting. I'd rather eat poop and tin foil than look or listen to this man.

HOLY ISH    

It is sick how many people are haters. They worked for their money and should be able to spend it however they so chose. GET IT!! Who is anybody on here to say differently? Besides, what does it matter how they spend their money! Get over it and worry about yourself!
