Fly transcends time...




So I'm boarding the plane, headin home to visit with the fam during the MLB All Star Break... In the front row, there's an elderly white woman who must have been in her late seventies... She was with a crew of older folks all sittin in first class... So I walk by lookin real bummy, with my summer uniform on, u know white-T, red Crooks hat, basketball shorts (with the pockets!) and a fly pair of Jordans. The lady looks down @ me and says "Nice shoes!" I was all thrown off... And said, "Yeah, u got good taste." We shared a smile. The rest of her party stood up to peep the AJ-1's and then all these older white folks start co-signin! Hilarious... Its the small things that can make your day. Not only was I surprised that she spoke, but that we, generations apart, connected for a split second... I guess it just goes to say, that fly is fly, fresh is fresh and cool is cool... Fly transcends time and anyone can put a smile on your face.
