View Full Version : The next big thing

06-04-2009, 01:50 PM
Now that we have the pros wearing wristbands with a different color for each wrist, I predict that within the next year we will see them wearing different colored shoes for each foot. Anyone wanna bet? Manufacturers would love it. Kids would need to buy two pairs of shoes to get the right effect. I'm going to seed the effort at the grass roots level this evening at my USTA team practice. White shirt, black shorts, one black wrist band, one white. . . even though I usually don't wear wrist bands. . . and then one black shoe and one white shoe opposite of the wrist bands to complete the ensemble. Complete write-up to follow.

I thought those were the colors they had for the same shoe not different colors for one pair. If that is the case that's pretty lame. But I'll see some rapper kid in my neighborhood rocking that style soon enough.

This is nothing new. I remember a few NBA players in the 90's wearing something like this. Toni Kukoc had shoes that different colors on the outer half of the shoes than on the inner half. Red and white. When you saw him from the side it looked like he had a white shoe on one foot and a red on the other but when he turned around it look the opposite as if he switched shoes.

using this would trigger some sort of psychotic behaviour on me...

an i do remember Kucoc... back in those days shoes were over the board. i have a pair of British Knights from about that time in the garage (i got a lot of shoes from a closeout store) that actually can kill the weaker persons just for taking a look at them!:)
