Black people’s weird and deadly obsession with running shoes spills over to UK, with bonus awesome (that you have to scroll WAY down to get to)
One said the killer said ‘Wallah’, an Arabic slang term for ‘I swear to God’, before plunging the knife into his victim.

The Air Force 1 shoe is one of Nike’s most revered and iconic models. This limited-edition version is not for sale but rather a special product, proudly displaying the colors of the African American flag. Rich black leathers have been chosen to represent the essence of all color. Contrast stitching has been used to show an energetic pop of pride and perseverance. The centennial logo honors the long and rich history of the African American culture. Forty-four stars circle the outer perimeter of the logo to represent the celebration of the first African American to represent a people as well as the American government. The Swoosh has a luxury material of metallic black leather and the outsoles are marbleized like the courtrooms of the US Supreme Court – the place where many civil rights battles were fought and won.
Personally, I found this comment particularly moving:
My mom passed away February 12, 2008. This would be a great gift for me in rememberance of her struggle and life. She was 80 years old. It was a very painful time and still is painful. This would give me a insight of her life and some comfort. My shoe size is 8 1/2.
I know I am not a star or famous in anyway. I am a middle class person wishing to receive these shoes in commerative of my mom’s life.
