Best Marketing Ever

May 29, 2008

I saw this guy  at the doctor’s office this morning. (I apologize for the poor quality photo, but it had to be covertly taken from my iPhone.) What struck me as odd about this guy you ask? Take a look at his shoes.  They are Starbury shoes. Starbury is Stephon Marbury’s shoe company that targets a young, hip-hop crowd. They sell an inexpensive line of shoes as an alternative to the expensive lines from other NBA players.

I am quite confident that this gentleman wasn’t in the target market for this company. I was expecting Rockport, he obviously wanted to look like a baller!

    That is some funny crap!
    How did this happen?

    I have those shoes! However, I am 25, not 65. I never thought I’d see someone… well… they are usually on sale for $9.00. Frugal living probably caused this hilarious run-in rather than fashion or style. Still funny, though!!

    I LOVE how the right shoe is un-tied, too.
