Where did Stuffed shoes start?

Unread post by Unlimited » March 9th, 2005, 8:30 am

My homie and I were arguing about stuffed shoes. You know when I guy or girl puts a sock in their shoe to make it look fatter. Well he said it must have started in L.A. cuz that's where he is from but I think it didn't cuz almost all the "ballas" over here wear them like that. Plus when I head down to L.A. or the Valley I don't see no one wearing their shoes like that.

So my question is whether it is an L.A. thing or kids in the suburbs started it.

OG down in G.I. wears'em like that cause hes enimic and in a wheel chair so his body doesn't produce enough heat to keep his legs warm and that results in poor circulation in his feet which in turn make them swell up so he does everything he can to keep his feet warm.

there is no way this has to do with Los Angeles because it never gets that cold.

We did that back in 2000-2001 in L.A. I used to to help prevent creases in shoes, some did it because they didnt tie shoes, and some just did it because other people were.
