What's your first sneaker memory?

I remember getting my first job at 14 years old. We got our first paycheck 3 weeks into the new job. Our supervisor decided to pay us at lunch time for our first check because it took 3 weeks instead of the regular 2 weeks. What he didn’t know was that the black and purple Nike Shox R4 came out on the same day. So after we got paid during lunch time, me and 4 of my friends went downtown to buy the R4’s and never returned to work. That was the last time we were paid at lunch.

Oakland, CA or NYC!!!
