Shaq, Marbury and Affordable Kicks

I had read about this a while back and wanted to blog on it. Kudos to Shaquille O'Neal and Stephon Marbury for lending their names to the Dunkman and Starbury sneakers, all of which cost under $24.99 (Shaq's kids' version is $13.99; Marbury's is $14.98). Thankfully, these two star players have taken a stand against the lunacy of $100+ sneakers for kids and the awful peer pressure that kids have had to suffer it they didn't wear (read: couldn't afford) the hot sneaker.

You can buy the most expensive gear, you can look as good as you want to, but what matters is what's inside you and the effort you give. I haven't always been the biggest fan of Marbury's -- he's been an enigma to be with all of the talent he has displayed, but he is setting a good example with the Starbury. So far he has sold many a sneaker, which means he and those touting the shoe are onto something.
