I guess it could make a pedicurist’s job more pleasant?

These have been all over the internet and, since they officially launched last friday, presumably all over town as well.

Maybe.

You see I’m a sneaker addict from *way* back.

Way.

As in I’m happily still sporting my lovingly cared for 95 Nike Air Maxes (the real ones, People, not the rerelease.).

I’m also a *huge* fan of having sneakers at which other people scoff (please to see my neon yellow Nike Air Rifts procured at the lowlow price of $9.99).

Yet even I draw the line at a sneaker which hath been shoved with a scented sockliner.

For some reason I cant get out of my mind precisely how the shoes mightcould smell after many, many wearings (think old Kool-Aid + dried, congealed foot sweat “glow”).

Now, the matching apparel Reebock is launching?

Mizfit is ALL IN if they’re selling a Kool-Aid Man suit. Every girl needs one of those hanging in her closet for the day after a mini-cheesecake binge (not that I’m singling anyone out here) or when she’s been subliminally coerced into consuming a few too many cupcakes.

Do tell: will you be sucked in by Reebok’s scentvertising or, like MizFit, do you prefer *all* your smells to be spritzed or slathered on post-shower?

(bonus points if you can figure out who the heck their target market is)

    Although I LOVE me a cold glass of grape Kool Aid, I don’t think I shall be procuring these at the moment…

    But if they came in Infant size 4, I may be tempted…..

  2. Julie Lussier says:

    I’m with Shannon. I will not be sporting this Kool Aid fashion but hey if my Guatemalan Prince would like to, umm maybe.

    Plus, now I am old. I go for comfort and spend $$ for shoes and close my eyes when I look at my feet. (i have super wide feet) and the shoes they have me fitted in, umm not pretty, but boy do my feet feel great at the end of a hard day of chasing the tornado around.

    Shannon, what’s the deal with that? I LOVE kool-aid as well. it is the childhood memories? who can say. I just know that CHICKENBUS is NOT the same with out sugar (as in buhbye Splenda)

    and Julie? I know…Id get the shoes for my Tornado but am embarrassed to say that I really liked the Kool-Aid BASEBALL CAP.

    love.

    now to get reebok to do a friday freebie!

    As much as I love sneakers, I don’t think I could ever wear those–and I’ve had some pretty “obscure” looking sneakers.

    Love the new site and can’t wait to see what you have in store!

  5. MizFit says:

    Thanks Lora!
    Are you with me on the hat-love though?

    Admit it 😉
    you are.

    I have always had very gross foot , ahem “aroma”, not that you needed to know that, BUT, I’m not sure if this would be the best thing that ever happened to me (foot-wise) or if I would attract flies.

    I’m guessing, the latter.

    And as for the Kool-Aid man outfit, I have but one thing to say.

    “OH YEAH”

  7. MizFit says:

    ooooh, t.l.a., you might have nailed it!
    perhaps it’s a reebok foot odor masker! mightcould that be their target market? (and have you seen all the info about soaking your feet in tea for odor? It WORKS (*wink*)).

    wanting her kool aid man suit as super tuesday plus cookies = political sweetness,

    M.

  8. P says:

    Oh the kool aid man suit would have been so much phater than the fat jeans!!!

    Mini ‘cakes are now GONE and I won’t be making that bad idea purchase again. Sad thing? Not even that good.

    From now on every time I reach for something less than healthy I will picture MizFit saying PUT THAT DOWN DON’T MAKE ME GO ALL KOOL AID MAN ON YOU.

    That is all.
