Toms Is Really Trying To Profit From Selling Huaraches. Yes, HUARACHES.

Latinos just might be THE most fashionable population on the planet. Brands love our style so much, they’re literally copying it and selling it to hipsters for double triple, sometimes four times the price. Here’s TOMS’ attempt at banking off our huaraches.

If you’re in the market for some new huaraches, TOMS hopes you will give theirs a chance.

Seriously, TOMS, the company who started with slip-on shoes has now gone further than their little wedges experiment.

But before you rush out to buy these, take a moment to consider that their huaraches will set you back more than $100.

Anywhere between $89 and $150 to be exact.

And that makes us feel a certain way…

Because paying $120 for huaraches when you’re Latino is such a joke.

But street fashion vigilantes have already started documenting the TOMS huaraches/hipster epidemic spreading.

Nothing says, “I love and understand Mexico” like wearing huaraches with your school khakis. Amiright?

Thanks to these shoes, people are now being forced to chose a side: #TeamToms or #TeamJuans.

Neymar, Paul Rodriguez And Other Elite Athletes Open Up About The Influence Of Kobe Bryant

“He’s always trying to take your heart out. And you’ve gotta be ready for that.”

After 20 seasons in the NBA, Kobe Bryant is finally hanging up his sneakers. Throughout his two-decade tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers, Bryant built a reputation for being a fierce – borderline homicidal – competitor. Bryant wanted to be the very best, and if you weren’t down with it, he set out to destroy you, whether you were a friend or foe. After all, that’s why Kobe started comparing himself to the Black Mamba, a deadly snake whose bite can potentially kill someone in less than an hour. (Apparently no one had the courage to tell Bryant that it’s lame to give yourself a nickname.) Nike rounded up some of the greatest athletes of the last decade to describe Kobe’s impact on their lives, including Brazilian soccer star Neymar, pro skateboarder Paul “P-Rod” Rodriguez and Argentine soccer player Javier Mascherano.
