Yup! I put both of those in the subject. You may not realize it but I am a huge Detroit Sports fan. I grew up in Michigan and I don’t waiver from my teams. For as long as I can remember I’ve loved the Lions and the Pistons. Sure, I love the Red Wings too – they do provide us with wins and championships when the other teams are sucking wind – but the Lions and Pistons are my teams. In fact, I am pretty sure Isiah Thomas used to rep for Puma shoes back in the day. I have that stuck in my mind from about 7th grade.
Now that the Detroit Lions are climbing the ranks in the NFL it is more fun to wear my gear. In the past I’d get the pity looks and comments like, “You are such a good fan wearing that jersey when the team is 0-16.” So now that I can wear my shirts with pride I needed some shoes to match. I’ve been checking out shoes for the past 6 months trying to find just the right pair. These aren’t perfect but they are close. They look really good with my tshirts. I think I need something different for my jerseys though because they are a different shade of blue – more brilliant. Of course looking from the jersey to my feet – you can’t really tell.
My next pair will probably be black with a blue stripe. Puma had some but they didn’t come in unisex sizes (argh) so I couldn’t buy them. These are kids shoes actually. I’m proud to say that they were on sale & I got them 40% off so they were a fantastic buy.
