NBA star Stephon Marbury (a guard for the New York Knicks) has created a clothing line that is attracting a lot of attention.
The star of the show: a pair of top-of-the-line basketball shoes that look like the $100 and $200 versions, but these cost less than $15!
Marbury’s Starbury One shoes are being marketed as “footwear for social justice”.
Marbury has been drawing high-profile praise in recent days for promoting a new basketball sneaker described as ‘revolutionary’. Source
That’s right… the kids love ’em, and the parents can afford ’em!
On the CBS Early Show today, Stephon Marbury showed us the exact same shoe that he wears on the court…

Stephon also said that 10% of all his profits go to charities including police departments, fire departments and schools. He wants to make a difference.

Who knew that I'd be writing about feet for a living?!… Or even that a website devoted solely to feet, shoes, and foot care issues would be successful? But as it turns out, many people have questions and concerns about their feet — and we do our best to provide the most helpful answers here. Myself and a handful of others who happen to have some rather unique foot issues share our firsthand experiences with everything from ingrown toenails, bunions, calluses and rough feet to trendy shoes and helpful foot modeling tips. When I'm not writing about all things below the ankle, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
