wtf purchase of the day
I somehow lost my shoes camping. So today, I wandered into the New Balance store. And bought these, because I am incredibly lame.

I don't even know if they'll work out as a running shoe, but they're so ridiculous I couldn't help myself.

That is actually embarassing.

I know. I think the lime green adds a lot, don't you?

Have you ever seen the custom-made cowboy boots I had done about five years ago?


wtf, quads over quads?! Footwear is so rigged.

A friend of mine emailed me a link to a similar pair. I replied that no self respecting poker player would ever wear shoes like those. I guess I was wrong. :-))))

About the shoes, or me having respect for myself?

About the shoes! Or, rather, my belief about them.

Does it have to be either/or?

Oh my! I'm at a loss for words . . .

Those are completely fucking awesome!

Not gay. Not a bit.

You're not? Well, good info to have, I suppose.

What do you think about the shoes?

Re: Tipping your hand;)

DO NOT RUN IN THOSE! Just a warning from a current college track athlete.

Re: Tipping your hand;)

Why not? They're New Balance 574s, which I know is a walking shoe, but I can't imagine they're *bad* for running.

I'm usually on the receiving end of ridiculous poker items, not the purchasing end.

Well, after you win a bracelet this year (make sure it is a televised event), sign them and put them up on ebay. I'm really curious about how much a fanboy would pay for these. You can donate the money to http://www.shopaholicsanonymous.org/ to save others from the obvious problem you have. BTW, note the first name of the founder.... :)

Ridiculously AWESOME!
Ex approved!

Sweet. Can I wear it with my blazer? :D

You can wear those shoes with ANYTHING and look utterly pimp.
You ought to buy some Onitsuka Tiger shoez as well.

Congratulations. Your ridiculous shoes made it into my dreams last night.

Oh wow.


Now I've seen everything.

You should start wearing them to every poker competition you go to.

They can be your lucky green(-ish) shoes!


Those are 4 King good shoes Terrence!

I'm awarding you Scottro's COTD by proxy.

Thanks.... 8^0

Those shoes are amazing.

Now you just need to find a pair of Crocs with a similar design. Then you will truly win.

OMG I just saw Johnny Chan wearing those exact same shoes!

(Deleted comment)

I saw a guy (of color) the other night wearing what looked like light brown suede hiking boots with a royal flush embroidered on the outside of each boot.

It went great with his multi-patched jeans that were hanging from his waist, his red suspenders, his cowboys football jersey and matching cowboys ballcap and bluetooth headset.
