Knowing Barack Obama’s love for the game of basketball, former boxer Mitchell Rose came up with the idea to create a b-ball sneaker inspired by the prez. The shoe has been produced and Mitchell has been doing his best to get them into the spotlight. NBC News did a story on the Obama shoe that started out pretty objective, but then took a turn for the worse when the news crew stopped by Alife to see what they thought of the sneaker. To make matters even worse, Ghostface practically lost it after seeing the Obama kicks in a segment of Ed Lover’s C’Mon Son. Keep reading for a look at two video clips profiling the sneaker and people’s reactions to it and be sure to let us know what you think. Via NahRight.
