Shoe diaries

Kicks were an underscored story at the All-Star game this weekend. Surprisingly, Grammy award-winning artist Mya had the flashiest with her fuchsia Reebok high tops worn with silver leggings and jean cutoff shorts for her halftime performance of greatest hits.
And although adidas is the official sneaker of the women’s league, word on the street is they hurt too many players’ feet to actually be worn by many. In fact, majority of the All-Stars are signed to a $5,000 Nike contract that allows them to wear the company’s apparel. It was a cheaper system than simply signing up with the league.
So for the game, the company shipped out various orange, black, and white versions that were a little reminiscent of Halloween, for their players to wear. Minnesota guard Seimone Augustus’ all black version were cool. Storm All-Star Lauren Jackson had white and orange with “LJ 15” and the Australian flag.
The funniest shoe story was Western Conference coach Jenny Boucek (Sacramento) who gingerly walked on to the postgame press conference stage barefoot. She wore off-white heels with a crisp brown suit with off-white trimming and couldn’t take another step in the fashionable shoes after the loss.
“My feet are hurting, I hope y’all don’t mind,” she told the media, using a thicker version of her native Tennessee accent.
