Conspiracy of multi-billion dollar running shoe industry,


Recommended Posts

BORN TO RUN, by Christopher Mac Dougall exposes the sordid world of NIKE, and the greedy 20 Billion Dollar a year conspiracy to cripple runners and steal their money, and how a remote Mexican tribe whose customs have not changed for thousands of years can show us the way to cripple this conspiracy for all time. Keep your feet naked.

I am 3/4rs finished this book, and from everything I hear the best parts are still to come. I have no doubt MacDougall's book is an instant classic.

PS Buy stock in the makers of Vibram's Five Fingers

What happened to good old All American Converse?

Chuck Taylor high tops.

And did Oswald wear sneakers? For somebody who got around as much as he did he should have.

The Nike conspiracy began circa 1972, so Oswald escaped that one. He was a victim of a different conspiracy.

PS This was not the first conspiracy involving shoes and shoelessness. Remember the 1919 World Series of Baseball?
