It's More Reliable Than A 401(k)
The Dow Jones may be reaching new heights these days, but that doesn't mean investments aren't risky. Who knows when the economy will take another dive? While not all sneakers are blue chip, what other investment doubles (or triples, or more) in value the second you buy it? Invest wisely, and you might be able to retire early. Invest poorly, and well, at least you won't have to worry about buying shoes.
