Of course, as in other competitive ecosystems, not all Internet species are equally equipped to survive. You have your dinosaurs. Your short lived passenger pigeons. Payne had never even been to New York. When he finally got to the Westin, the midtown hotel where the NBA housed players and their families for the week, autograph seekers swarmed his car. The first time he and his family drove through Times Square, Payne gawked at the huge video boards overhead and stared in amazement at the number of people lining the streets.
In the end, this boot had me at “Hello”. I would have bought it for looks alone! I love the variety of cute, vibrant colors. That these leather hiking boots offer ladies such high standards of comfort, durability, waterproof and ruggedness well, that’s the icing on the cake.
So many questions and I wish I knew the answers. There is some comfort in the fact that there are others who are thinking the same thingand are attacking it head on for example a hui was organised in Auckland recently, and I sure there are similar happenings around the country.

And it boasts Asia’s biggest tannery. Prime Asia consumes 8,000 cow hides a day, taking about six minutes to apply dye and finishes, jobs that once took hours of soaking in vats.By contrast, Nike has only 22,000 directly employed staff, hardly any of whom make shoes; Adidas has 15,000 and one shoe factory in Germany.Sports brands have branched out into clothing and equipment but shoes remain their top selling goods, making Asian contract workers vital to their profits.The firm says it abides by the minimum wage of 450 yuan ($54.3; 32) a month, pays overtime at time and a half and does not force it on workers.Sports shoes are iconic style purchases, which long ago ceased to be purely about performance or comfort.Arguments abound about exactly when sneakers jumped from the athletics track to the catwalk.Some say it was Nike’s landmark sponsorship of basketball legend Michael Jordan, which created Air Jordans in 1985.Stories of people being robbed for their trainers emerged with those red and black high tops.”It just grew exponentially in the 80s with the growth of casual dressing, men’s’ fashion, urban dressing as a fashion,” says Kathy Deane, President of US trend bible The Tob Report.Training shoes achieved all pervasive appeal through links with basketball, hip hop, street fashion and football and became design classics. Restyles of past designs sell well.”It’s no secret that people buy performance shoes but they want to wear them on the street,” says Adidas’ spokeswoman Anne Putz.High performance designs remain the biggest sellers, but as they are top fashion items too it is impossible to sift practical purchases from style buys.Ms Putz says 82% of Adidas brand sales last year were sports performance shoes, but that would include some of the brand’s sharpest new looks.US market leader Nike’s shoe sales were slightly down last year but sports fashion shows no sign of evaporating.Technological innovations start with sport but reshape fashion fast.
