Starbury One Basketball Shoes - Only $14.98?
Can a pair of basketball shoes endorsed by an NBA star really only cost $14.98? Believe it kids - there's no wacky math going on here. The Starbury One basketball shoes are the signature shoe of New York Knicks point guard, Stephon Marburby, and they cost a fraction of the price of the latest Air Jordans or Zoom Lebrons. That means you can actually buy them without having to steal from your parents or sell your younger sibling. Marbury says he's putting his name behind the shoes because he thinks most basketball shoes cost way too much coin and he wants kids who don't have a lot of bling to be able to wear sneakers fit for the pros. Marbury says these shoes are made from the same material as most namebrands and he plans to wear the Starbury Ones during the 2006-2007 NBA season.
Starbury One Basketball Shoes - Shoe Revolution?
Whether or not the Starbury Ones will last long as other brands will be for you to decide - but for $15.00, how can you really go wrong? Marbury is attaching his name to these sneakers because he want to draw attention to the ridiculous prices of basketball shoes. Experts in the shoe industry say a pair of Zoom Lebrons or Air Jordans cost less than $20 to make so why do they cost more than $125 to buy? The main reason is that shoe companies like Nike and Reebok pay stars like Lebron, Iverson and Kobe millions of dollars to endorse their shoes, so kids will buy them. Marbury isn't taking any endorsement money for these shoes but will receive some money if the shoes sell really well. Stephon Marbury has always had a reputation for being a bit of a selfish player - but he appears to be sharing the love with his new line of sneakers.
