People want to know what happened to the shoes. Did the thieves get the shoes? Were the shoes damaged? Do all these muggers wear the same size shoes? Size humungus?

Sad. Pitiful. That's why those shoes will never appeal to me. Wearing Air Jordans is like wearing a bullseye. You become a walking target just to wear a pair of shoes that probably cost $5 to make at a sweatshop. Truly pathetic.

It doesn't make any sense. These coloreds are stealing each other's shoes? And who pays $400 for a pair of sneakers? You can get them down at the Kresge dime store for five dollars. How much does this boy make that he pays that much for gym shoes?

There's a million stories in the naked city. This story goes that the boy worked and saved all summer for the shoes. If so, I don't begrudge him from making this choice. Young kids do not have houses or cars. These single items of glory mean everything to them. Our economy is based on motivation producing work to achieve goals. In this case it did not work out for the boy, yet he still remains motivated.

I still have a Triple Phat goose down jacket. Should I be worried (other than the obvious fashion sense).

It was the popcorn that really brought the traffic. The Kresge next to the Wards at Greenfield and Grand River was connected inside. The popcorn popper was just on the Kresge side.

Saunders was down the street on the north side. Robert Hall was two blocks down on the south side. Great Lakes Theater further down.

Doesn't matter how much he paid for the shoes, the point is nobody should have shot him for what he worked for, gotten gifted to him, or maybe like me worked his ass off & slurred on himself for. His life is worth way more than $400 measly dollars!

Some little Jewish tailor would hook you up with pants three inches too long and pleats in front.
I think you could get a Palm Beach communion suit there too.

awww nobody gives a big fat black rats rear end about who got shot for some tired old n word sneakers.

black lives just do not mater in detroit, chicago, baltimore ,boston, gary or anywere else in america.

a black life certainly isn't worth a pair of sneakers or even one tired old sneaker with shit marks foot prints on it and no laces cause the way blacks kill off blacks black lives do not matter in the hood.

give it up already black lives just do not matter

ask obozo, or al "notvery" sharpton or them black fat a$$ attorney generals in washington who never get out to do them full scale civil rights investuiagtions about nothing?

ask the press or folks in charge of TV nawwww thats a complete waste of time

just keep on keeping on cause no one gives a big fat rats rear end how many black folks you kill.

When blacks stop killing their own, then I'll consider their lives matter. Until then, no it doesn't. The violent monkeys can all be shot, for all I care.

We need the CIA and a team of Genius Scientist to get involved.
