    Im looking forward to explaining to friends about listening to a mixtape based on shoes.

    Then im looking forward to explaining the genius.

    Then im looking forward to seeing the evolution of sudden realisation on their faces.

    It wouldn't be a mixtape about shoes without My Adidas! It's some good listening there, thanks dude.

    "President Bush announced before he leaves office, he wants to visit the poorest regions of the world. You know, any place where people can't afford to buy shoes."
