So why do people buy Adidas UltraStar shoes? In addition to being ridiculously white, they have a bizarre tortoise-shell plastic cover on the toe box, the appeal of which we can't seem to understand. Just imagine the maintenance and work to keep these things squeaky clean. Or maybe owners tend to own multiple pairs, consistent with their already front-loaded lifestyle? We find them generally being sported by aerobic/weightlifting obsessed guidbags and guidettes. In short, they are a favorite of the Everlast crew, a group we will certainly post on in due time.
