Putting quality child labor to work, Stephon Marbury has come out with a new low-cost signature shoe, Starbury One. For the same price as a month's subscription to a porn site ($14.95), you too can sport a pair of these kicks.
According to yahoo.com, "Stephon Marbury introduces his new basketball sneaker, Starbury One, Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2006 in New York. The shoes, developed with Steve & Barrys University Sportswear, will be sold for $14.95 in the clothing chains 130 U.S. stores beginning Thursday."
So all ya'll sneakerphiles out there, here's the link to Steve & Barry's University Sportswear, just so you can find the right store to camp out at just to cop a pair. I'm worried about the lines in the morning so, I'll see you there tonight!
But seriously, has Starbury fallen so far down that he has to hawk the Walmart of basketball kicks? How long before the shoe tears at the seams? 15 minutes? 20 minutes? When sporting the kicks, do you feel a sense of an over-inflated ego while posting a 3-12 shooting, 0 assists and 6 turnovers each time you play?
Anyway here's a few links loaded with Starbury One
