I have asked high school aged persons about Vans,
and they screw
up their faces and say, "But only
skateboarders would wear them.
I wouldn't be caught dead in
them." The point is that Vans have a limited
And there is a lot of competition for that type of
shoe now, and
many skateboarders are wearing
imitations of Vans. And I doubt
if you will catch many
baby-boomers in Vans.
what up 40 something people? i did a search for
skateboarding in yahoo and it gave me this letter that called
vans a "canvas boating shoe". i am a 14 y o
skateboarder from t.n. vans shoes are NOT boating shoes and
they are not canvas. have you ever even looked at a
pair of vans? all shoes i've had have been suede that
is triple layered for skating and they are really
durable. you can get vans for about $30 if you look good
enough. and timberlands are crappy prep shoes, i wouldnt
wear a pair of timberlands if somebody gave me them, i
would sell them or burn them. i dont buy the less
expensive version, i buy vans...vans is the most popular
shoe at my school so if you people like making money
by investing in stuff or whatever you guys do invest
in vans, they rule.
There's This Stock Called US Technologies And
It's Suing A Company Called Alph Hospitalities Or
Somethin. But The Big Thing Is That They Are Suing Them For
50 Million Dollars.....They Are Expected To Win!!!!!

Yeah, he worked for Swoosh for a couple of years,
but returned to Reebok about 18 months ago. Due to
non-compete, didn't start back up with them till about 6
months ago, and I've lost touch. I know the original
plan was to stay here in PDX area, but don't know for
sure. Good luck.
if those kids need more money, maybe they should
work some overtime!!!!!
as far as i'm concerned
Nike ought to FIRE those LAZY bastards and let
machines do ALL the work. they are simply OVERCHARGING
nike to the tune of $.50 per pair.
do you have
any idea how expensive it is to maintain a big US
sales force???? and pay celebrities BILLIONS of
it ain't cheap!!!!!!
if you would just do
your part and buy more Nike product maybe Nike would
be able to afford to fully automate their production
line and FIRE all of those LAZY
they then could get back to making the BIG BUCKS
pickin' rice and dirt farming.
The kids should be in school reading Chaucer and
Mark Twain and Shakespeare. How are they going to get
into Harvard if they have to work in the factory? They
should get rid of that marriage tax penalty and then
maybe mom and dad wouldn't need the kids to work in the
factory to support the family. Then maybe they could get
some Gap khakis and eat out more. Get some
Clearly the Southeast Asians would be much
better off if Nike just closed all their production
facilities and fired everyone. That's likely just the boost
those economies need.
The kids should be
scouping ice cream for $5.25 an hour (or about $500 an
hour based on local cost of living) at Ben and
Jerry's, not working in the sweat shops. Isn't their
allowance enough, anyway? It's all so sad. I just want to
hug every last one of them.
Toto, I don't
think we're in Kansas anymore.
