"I'm down in Houston with my 7on7 team. We kickin' butt because that's what we do. Long day – and if you've ever been to a 7on7 [tournament], you know it's going to be a long day – especially if you’ve got a good team. You know you're going to play about five to six games. The day gets so long and you get so drained emotionally - because I'm into the game coaching - and physically. And my feet are bad.
“The day gets so long and you get so drained emotionally … and physically. And my feet are bad.”
I see this young cat, this young brother, Bryant, over there with some slides, showing some of the kids the slides. But they don't really understand what slides are for. They just wear slides because slides are cool. We wear slides because slides are comfortable; and he offered me a pair. I was reluctant to take them because you know usually there's a catch – you give something, you want something. But I took them. He was very polite. And I wore them and wore them and wore them. They are the most comfortable slides I have ever worn in my life.
“They are the most comfortable slides I have ever worn in my life.”
This is coming from a dude who is 52, who’s had three toe surgeries – and is in the need of a fourth – and these shoes changed the game for me.
“These shoes changed the game for me.”
So, it's normal for me after a long day, or to bring comfort to my feet, to wear OOFOS.
And let me tell you something man, if you want style as well as comfort – and normally you have to sacrifice one for the other – right here baby, OOFOS.
“If you want style as well as comfort – and normally you have to sacrifice one for the other … OOFOS.”
I ain't lying. Ask all my kids and family members and friends and loved ones, because I'm letting it be known, I'm letting it be known – truth." – Deion
