From Rubber Rooms to Rubber Soles

I got to campus early today and saw a former student standing in a long line with friends and others - camping out in front of a store. "Concert tickets?," I asked. "U2? 40 Cent? (even 50 is downsizing in this economy)" "No." "Dorm room assignments? "Nah."

"Then what?"


"Wheezy? From The Jeffersons?"

According to my student, 24 pairs were delivered to this particular store. Anyone ever remember camping out for sneaks? I was afraid to ask the price, so I looked it up online...

Ouch. From Wikipedia: After years of work that West underwent in order to established himself as an artist, after dropping out of college to pursue his dream of becoming a musician, he emerged into the mainstream with his debut studio album. (The College Dropout is the debut album)
Kanye -- Are you footing this student's tuition in the Fall?


  1. You can actually get them for the bargain of $600! That's a lot of rubber chickens!

  2. Shouldn't a college student have the sense not to drop a grand on some shoes? I'm just sayin'...

  3. Heard you can get a good pair for 225 - but for that price, they should throw in Heat-Hawks tickets, and let me dunk over Harry the Hawk.
