I was at a gaming Expo and there were lots of areas set up for trying out games and new consoles.

I had noticed there was a huge variety of sneakers being worn. Everything from converse through to supras.

I was wearing my pair of adidas space divers and was queing to try out a Nintendo switch. I noticed the guy behind me keep looking at my adidas. We ended up catching each others eye.

“Oh sorry.” he said, “I just really like your shoes. You can’t get them anymore and I’d love a pair.”

” oh thanks” I said, a bit surprised. I glanced at his feet. “I really like yours as well.” I did. He was wearing an awesome pair of black and red Supras.

” what size are you?” he asked.

“10.5 or 11. It depends on the make” I replied.

“OMG, no way. Same as me.” he said. ” tell you what… What if I played you for them. If I beat you in the demo, I win your shoes.” this sounded fun. And rather exciting.

“OK… But if I win, I get your supras.” I said.

“alright, deal.” I couldn’t believe it. Either outcome would be great in my opinion. Before I knew it it was our turn.

We were playing a Mario Kart demo. We were sharing a console and had one controller each.

I struggled to concentrate and he was ahead at the end of the first lap. I pulled it back and passed him to lead the second lap. It all came down to the last lap. He used a shell and passed me. ” I’m gonna lose my shoes” I thought. I then got a shell and fired it. It hit him on the finish line and I passed him to win. I won. I couldn’t believe it.

“whey, well done” he said. We moved out of the game area. “a deals a deal.” he said. I watched as he slid off his Supras and handed them over. ” that was fun” he said. “hope you enjoy them” then we walked off with his friends in his white socks.

I couldn’t believe it. I had won his shoes. I wanted to wear them so I put my adidas in my bag and slid on his supras. They fit perfectly and looked awesome. I wore them the rest of the day and caught glimpses of the shoeless guy. I think he noticed I was wearing his shoes.

Joining my sorority

Author – Debbie

When I first joined my sorority in college, the older sisters would teach you how to play poker.  The only catch was that the pledges had to take a shot each time they lost.  Of course this lead to all of the pledges usually losing all of their money to begin with.  Then we were required to bet clothes, shoes, and whatever our sisters wanted from us.  

I remember betting and losing my new white canvas Keds.  The other pledges also lost their sneakers.  We left barefooted and broke.  Nikki was particularly unlucky and lost ALL of her shoes and clothes.  After the game, the winning sisters emptied Nikki’s closet!  But Nikki had the last laugh as her sneakers spread athlete’s foot throughout the sisters.  lol. 

Lose your shoes tournament

Author – Jman

One time I was asked to be in a three-on-three basketball tournament.  I decided to do it for two reasons.  First, there was a $300 dollar prize for the winner and it was a chance to try out my new basketball shoes.
Our teams turn to play came up and we lost our game.  After the game this black box was brought out to the floor.  My two teammates took off their basketball shoes and put them in the black box and and they were hinting at me to do the same.  What I did not realize was that in this tournament winners got a prize but the losers of each game had to give up their basketball shoes.  I took my new basketball shoes off and held them in my hands for a while staring at what was no longer mine and I dropped my shoes into the black box.
