In the past 40 years of my life, I've been involved homme new balance 574 soldes with basketball in one way or another. First as being a mighty mite player, to be a 10-year-old. And progressing in the ranks, as a person, coach, referee and spectator.

As a youngster, there new balance femme were only a couple of manufacturers of sneakers that is certainly worn for basketball. Each manufacturers were PF Flyers and also Chuck Taylor Converse. When you were really a battler, you bought the Chuck Taylor Converse. Or Chucks as we employed to call them. And there have been only two colors. Dark or white. And not one but two styles. High tops or low cut.

If you really wanted to get pretty, you took new balance femme 574 the white laces out of your shoes and replaced these individuals with different colored laces to check your school colors. So your parents appeared paying $9. 99 for sneakers(plus $1 for your laces). In the late 1970's, there weren't any shops specializing in sneakers and footwear. We bought our sneakers with the local Army Navy Shop.

I'm not suggesting that new balance femme pas cher we return those days. But I believe it is absolutely outrageous that mother and father are paying $100 - $200 for the latest sneaker. Sneakers endorsed from the great NBA players just like Kobe Bryant, Alan Iverson, Tracy McGrady, and so on. With foreign suppliers headquarted within Asian countries, the raw cost(labor & material) in making those sneakers may not be much different today than when they manufactured Converse back within the seventies. So how do athletic shoes sell for $100 or longer? The answer - it's all inside the marketing and endorsement charges. Just pure greed.

Now with Stephon Marbury coming out along with his new sneakers that has all changed. The star guard with the New York Knicks has designed and is particularly marketing the Starbury One particular. Guess what the price to the sneakers are? $14. 98. Yes it's true...2 cents less when compared with $15. 00. And Stephon are going to be wearing his own shoes while playing this approaching season. I think that is definitely awesome. I know the majority is applauding Stephon for the efforts. Already the sneaker has become flying off the cabinets. The Starbury One is definitely instant success. And hopefully a few of the other players will stick to suit. Way to choose Stephon. Your sneakers undoubtedly are a slam dunk success.
