Kyle Lowry Supplies Shoes To The Raptors Fan That He Couldn’t Connect With In Chicago

I was not expecting that. Absolutely not. I was pretty blown away just to be sitting courtside and watching the shootaround. This is definitely one of the highlights of my being a Raptors fan. View gallery . (Courtesy Raptors.com) Yet another feel-good story for Toronto, a basketball community that has been needlessly taunted by the ups and downs of the NBA for 19 years. The Raps are well on their way to the playoffs in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year , coach Dwane Casey is off the hot seat and the proud recipient of the NBAs Coach of the Month award for December, and Lowry will likely stick out the season in Toronto after being tossed out as trade bait earlier in the season. And Alan Vale gets his shoes.

It is no secret that NeNe loves her Louboutin shoes with the red sole. Apparently, she has plenty of shoes that retails for around $625, but she does have some shoes that are much more. When Andy asked her on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live if the most expensive ones were about $2,000, she corrected him.

Ill-fitting shoes could lead to big foot problems

The pledge came after years of criticism of the retailer for selling so many imported goods from low-wage countries. Walmarts initiative set the folks at Elan Polo thinking: Was there a way to make some kind of shoe in the U.S. that could still be competitively priced with imports? Joe Russell, Elan Polos co-chief executive, said in a recent interview that the whole initiative would have been a nonstarter without Walmarts encouragement. It certainly seemed as though it would be a daunting task, however, with solid support from Walmart, it also seemed as though it could be a doable deal, he said. So how did the company do it?

Obama ringing in new year in low-key fashion

Marisol has rounded up talented fabric makers and weavers from around the USA to contribute to the brand, called Puzzle Apparel, which champions “sustainable, responsible fashion.” The process begins when a customer picks a garment designed by Marisol herself, then chooses how to embellish it with the different patterned fabrics made available by Marisol’s partners. Once the piece has been customized, it is sewn and shipped to the customer! All the embellishments are handmade by American artists, and truly one-of-a-kind! The idea came to the designer after she spent time in Guatemala and befriended a 13-year-old girl who worked part-time at a garment factor making the very clothes that Marisol and others in America were wearing. So, basically, Puzzle Apparel is a great way to look good and do good! CLICK HERE to check it out for yourself! [Image via Marisol Trowbridge] Note: your comment may take a few minutes to appear.
