Monday, February 22nd, 2016

It was the 1990’s. Nike had shoes. I bought a pair at the Honolulu Costco, the one Imelda Marcos sends her people to, even these days, AFAIK. Anyway, now the same exact shoe is being sold as new as a part of Nike’s retro line:

$31 T-shirts will never be the same.

What’s next – Claybury, Colbury, Shrabury, or Stanbury? Or perhaps Fellton, Fellon, Fellder, or Fellyan?
