Cleats by Bill Hinds for June 15, 2003
Bailey's Dad: Bailey needs a new pair of cleats. Whoa, look at this! Excuse me, these shoes look well made. Why are they so cheap? Uh--this box has two right-foot shoes in it. Clerk: They all do. The company did focus groups and found out most soccer players are right-footed. Corporate bottom-line dudes decided they could cut costs by only making right shoes. Bailey's Dad: Have you sold any? Clerk: No. Bailey: I can't run straight, Dad! Bailey's Dad: Keep running, Bailey. It may take awhile to break in these cleats.
