Dude, these are shoes. Honestly I don't understand why there is such high demand for some camo sneakers. Nobody is going to judge you for what shoes you wear, and if some asshat does, tell them that at least you don't spend over 1,000 dollars on foot covers.

Judy McGaugh (16 days ago)
Your a sneaker head when it hurts to sell your sneakers, and you feel for each pair you let go of no matter how much your making. These kids are going so moving the shoes so fast that they aren't appreciating them. But if your just in it for the money, some of these kids are scramblers, and know supply and demand. But I love my shoes, and its heart break whenever I sell a pair, and I always think ,No I CAN'T LET THOSE GO ,I WILL LET THESE GO INSTEAD
