You remember Stephon Marbury? The former guard of the New York Knicks (He’s a big basketball star in China now). If you weren’t a basketball fan back in the early 2000’s you might recall a player with a tattoo on the side of his head. The ink on his head represents the logo of his shoe line Starbury.
I remember the press and everyone and their mother talking about those sneakers in 2006. The hoopla surrounding the footwear were their price of $14.98 a pair! Now, that takes me to Marbury calling out the greatest of all time. Michael Jordan.
Marbury has been on Twitter to generate interest on the relaunch of the shoe line but for the past couple days he’s been expressing his dismay of the Jordan sneaker brand.
I mean lets be real he has a point. Jordans can run you $250.00 easy and kids who can’t afford them feel pressure to fit in. Knowing that their parents cannot purchase these shoes the kid literally kills for them. You also have the stress of hypebeast that magnify the problem.
My questions to you are do you agree with Marbury? And would you buy his sneakers for yourself or anyone that you know?
