Yeah, I know you all love it when I go “haute couture” on your ass. But fuck y’all. These are some ugly ass shoes!
When Miguel Cotto enters the ring to face Sugar Shane Mosley on Saturday night, he will do it on firm footing. The WBA welterweight champion will be wearing a super hi-tech boxing boot with a special sole made out of a Michelin rubber compound specifically designed to channel liquid away from the shoe to prevent Cotto’s feet from slipping on the slick ring canvas advertisements that often cause boxers problems. In addition, the boot is supposed to provide maximum traction, allowing Cotto to firmly plant his feet before unleashing his power punches.
Yeah fucking right. So basically they’ve replaced the soles of his shoes with tire rubber. Too bad Cotto’s not a fucking car and tires are designed to push liquid away while rolling, not stepping.
