Ask the MB -- Colchester Sneakers
Q: Check out these sneakers I bought last month -- http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=133807945. Interesting history leading up to the development of the shoe. Ok or lame?
--Scott


A: Oh, don't be so coy. You got a pair of the original basketball shoe (yes, before Converse), available only in Japan and obscure trade shows, and you're asking us if they're OK or lame? Another reader who should be on staff, we reckon.
