Walking to the hotel,we passed a store with a line over half a block long to get in.We used a side entrance to check it out & was told those people are waiting to get in to purchase a limited release of Adidas designed by Kenye West,the newest Yeezy Boost version that will sell for $395.00 a pair.They didn't even have any on display.

I walked up to the line & asked if they were hoping to buy that new shoe.I was told yes,but when I asked what was so special about them they shrugged & said "I don't know".

At that price,unless they can get me to walk in air,I'm not interested.

Meanwhile, The Baron recently purchased a pair of gently-used casual shoes at a thrift store for three dollars. I have no idea who "designed" them, but they look nice and I take my long walks in comfort. Life is good.
