Holy cow. They were beating each other bloody over Air Jordans 25 years ago!
TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO!!!
Those Amish folks sure loves them some Cool Grey 11’s!
I remember. Just about every boy at my junior high had a pair of them. The skinny ones looked like they were walking around in loudly colored casts.
What are these people nuts? Or perhaps they are all "Rich Republicans?"
I might spend $100-125 on some good shoes, but the day I spend (and I can afford it) more than $30 bucks for a pair of tennis shoes is right after I have a glass or two of the Lib's Kool Aid!
I searched and did not see it which surprised me. I always use the minimum exerts from most stories, especially sources like DMN, so maybe that was the problem.
Mobs for sneakers. Must be reliving the ‘good old days’.
its our fault. we gave them the money
... in the ghetto
How many of these people were receiving assistance from the gub’mint.

Yeah, I wonder if you can use your Lone Star welfare debit card to buy ‘hood-approved fashion accessories...
Made in China for a few bucks and sold to Amish in America for half of an unemployment check.
man Mesquite has come a long way from being country town. hahaha..
I am wearing some sort of Nike Air sneakers right now, they cost $39.99 at J.C.Penny.
Must not be the populat model...
That’s the plainest, most subdued-looking Air shoe I’ve ever seen. Normally Air Jordans are weird neon colors and patterns, but that one actually looks, dare I say it, good.
Not $175 a pair good, mind you. But good.
Rich Republicans for sure.
Or maybe spending Rich Republicans’ tax money after it has been transferred to their govt debit cards?
Wishful thinking, I guess. I cannot understand (or empathize with) the sort of idiots who stampede for things like shoes. I avoid mob scenes whatever the deal, whatever the cost, whatever the product.
It may be cliché, but the more I know of people, the more I love my cat.
Reminds me of the old days, and Red Ball Jets. Those were the high-top canvas sneakers. We used to say “Run your fastest, jump your highest and fall your hardest”, LOL.
