Re: Your Shoes. Style?

As a teenager, I was addicted to Nike, cross-trainers to be exact. I would take my little mall paycheck and buy a new pair of them every other week or so. And then I read Naomi Klein's No Logo and learned about the really awful business practices both on the production end and the consumer end, and decided to stop wearing them.

I know Nike owns Converse now, but for me it's not really about making a direct impact with my dollar, it's about not participating in the ridiculous culture of $100 (PLUS now, I've seen them at almost $200 these days!) sneakers.
