A slight difference from the pair spotted at Justin Timberlake’s February pop up in NYC. This Air Jordan 3 will feature a Bio Beige suede upper, Black elephant print overlays and Nike Air on the heels. Another additional detail includes an embossed text that reads HIGHER on the ankle. Completing the design are insoles that read FAME IS A LIE and STRESS IS CRUEL.

After reading the article regarding the death of Ms. Washington, that iconic Smokey Robinson and the Miracles’ 1960s smash hit, Tears of a Clown, comes to mind. I mourn her death and am saddened that there are forces that drove her to her last act of desperation. We live in a big world where there is room for many forms of artistic expression; however, as of late, it seems like sports and entertainment get the most attention. It’s unfortunate that we live in a world that’s more interested in Miley Cyrus twerking, or what Paris Hilton is wearing, or whether Jay Z really is a member of the Illuminati, or how the Redskin (Potatoes) will do this year than they are in making the world a better place. I take comfort in knowing that there are still people, such as yourself Dr. Lindsey, who’ve devoted their lives to helping others. However, I lament that Ms. Washington’s short life of advocacy was struck down, and the circumstances surrounding her death will most likely be lost in a blizzard of mind-numbing news and entertainment.
Thank you for the post Dr. Lindsey.
