HOT SNEAKER ALERT: TOMMIE SMITH BLACK POWER SHOES

February 2, 2009

Tommie Smith and John Carlos are never ending political figures. In the 1968 Olympics they raised a Black Power fist at the 110 year of the modern Olympic Games. They were persecuted for the move, but now Tommie Smith is being celebrated with his own shoe from Puma. See them below along with their statement in Mexico City.

    Much as I respect them for standing up after being told to shut up, I ain’t buying nothing with the PUMA label on it.
