these shoes were for MJ
I'll tell since you asked. i ordered the red beat it and black bad shoes to give to Michael Jackson himself since both designs were inspired by him. when i first ordered them i told him about it and he said "oh cool". then i told him i ordered them for him and he said "thank you, god bless you". a week or so before he died i got a chance to see him and gave him the shoes but didn't get a chance to show them to him and see his reaction. Michael always loved getting gifts and loved seeing things that had something to do with his work that he hadn't seen before. but because that day there were lots of people around him i didn't get to see his reaction. he had a long car drive to rehearsals and i'm sure he checked them out and liked them. nothing he would actually have worn but i wanted him to have or to give to his kids. I still had the black pair in my trunk and never had the chance to give it to him so i gave it to a family member that was very close to him.
to make a long story short, i also bought myself a pair of the RED ones that i love! everyone keeps asking me where i got them.
