I'm pretty sure these sneaker shoe thingys were created for the hooker on a misson. She can outrun her pimp Sweet Daddy and catch a trick at the same time. That's the only valid excuse I can come up with for anyone wearing these shoes. What everyday chick would be caught dead in these fuckers? Where's the logic? Sneakers are supposed to be comfortable! Only a man would create these medival torture devices. Although these are really no longer in style, I still see them every now and then on the feet of some unfortunate soul. If one of my buddies owned a pair of these, I'd play Treasure Hunt with them and bury them where she'll never find them.....like in the grave next to Jimmy Hoffa or maybe the same place where Susan L.Taylor's of Essence Magazine hairline disappeared to.
