These sneakers already rank amongst my all time favorites, a lot for the concept and for its cause.. A commemorative throw back limited edition shoe inspired by the late, legendary running back Walter Payton.. The shoes have really cool detail, with well placed "34"'s and "Sweetness" demonstrated throughout.. They even have it "Sweetness" in cursive, very subtly in the tips of each shoelace.. And of course each shoe has the classic ROOS pouch on its tongue.. The shoes are extremely well made and very comfortable!!
I have really fond memories of watching Walter Payton as a kid and remember him wearing his ROOS.. Very cool thing, portions of all sales are donated to the Walter & Connie Payton Foundation.. The foundation is dedicated to helping neglected, abused and underpriviliged children in the state of Ilinois, to learn more check out their website, www.payton34.com.. You can view selection and purchase online at Finishline (they just actually went on sale too!), i have both colored low tops, http://tiny.cc/wpayton.
