The Shoes Make The Batman

I just discovered a great new comic book / fanboy blog - - Kung Fu Rodeo - - and after reading this post, I am in need of 16,800 yen, STAT!

Yeah, yeah - - you twinks have your cute, white Pumas, but they ain't nothing compared to pair of these crazy-assed Batman Shoes from Japan...






















Even the box they come in is kick-ass...

Here's the question: I think these shoes are so friggin' great - - there's a black & white version if you don't care for the Technicolor version - - but would I ever get laid again if I wore these walking through Boystown?

I mean, would the Homos just look at me and start humming Dionne Warwick's "Walk On By?"

Or would these psychedelic Bat-Shoes soon be resting across the broad shoulders of a hunky, gay fanboy with a thing for shaved-headed cabaret singers?

I can dream, can't I?

I do think you would get laid, and by just the right kind of guy.

Sport em! Either color would be cute and they will attract the right kind of guy for you too! Can you imagine your surprise when he rips off his clothes to reveal a superhero outfit fitted oh so
perfect ...oops...thought this was fantasy super hero talk time! :)

I used to have some Joker Keds back in the day...still might actually somewhere.

I would wear those in a second -- after all, I'm not getting laid the way it is so they might actually bring me luck.

Dirk - I can just see us in this bizarre, homo version of The Sharks and The Jets (redundant?) where we walk up to each other in Boystown - - you wearing Joker Keds and me wearing Batman hightops. Every head will turn! Dead silence. Queer Fanboy High Noon.
