Bronx sneakers

What better way to represent your borough than to wear sneakers that are vaguely associated with said bit of turf. Right?

Gothamist has a quick view of the shoes, a limited-edition Nike Air Force 1 priced at $135. For the sake of skepticism, let’s get past the novelty of the idea to realise that these in fact have zero imagery or associate with the boroughs. No skyline, no map, no logo, nothing. The colours don’t make exact sense, either. Would it have been so hard to make the Bronx navy blue for the Yankees and Queens Orange for the Mets? That’s an easy one.

Sneaker culture is a helluva thing, though. Remember the Obama sneakers? How about the candy-and-soda-branded sneakers?
