    While we're talking about shoes..how come, when I buy new shoes, nobody asks me if I can run faster in them anymore? Being an adult sucks...

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Those would probably get you arrested in NYC. 
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    HA!  When I was a wee lad, I had a combination of being young/naive enough to buy the sensationalist advertising that they WOULD make you faster, a love of the Roadrunner cartoons, and a love of the color green.  The result of this all is that I was on a mission to find a pair of green "Zips" brand sneakers.

    Fast forward 45+ years and I'm mostly wearing New Balance for various comfort reasons.  I found a forest/OD green pair a couple weeks ago.  New Balance's trademark "N" is highly reminiscent of a sideways Zips "Z".  I gave my Mom a good chuckle when I called her up and said "I finally found 'em!" 

    And they definitely did NOT make me faster.  :disappointed:

    As to Zorba's Glock stilettos. . .my inner gun mechanic is alternatively screaming "OBSTRUCTED BORES!" and "SLIDE OUT OF BATTERY DISCONNECT!"

    Yep...they had those red rubber circles on the ankles to keep you from catching your pants on fire because you could run so fast

    "Run faster, jump higher" is what I remember for one brand.
