"Well, I am from the hood and this is the shoe—always has been, and always will be. I think you'd be hard pressed to find another shoe as popular among people. It's the safest bet in the shoe world. If at all you don't succeed, put on a pair of white-on-whites. You can get by, because it goes with virtually every outfit ever conceived by man. Some shoes actually look a bit better when they're worn in, like an SB, but not the white-on-whites. That first wear is always the best."
