The White Shoes (My Story) Inspired by Wale

nike-air-force-1-low-white-microperf-2 Sometimes I walk into Footlocker, I could hear their laughter.

It was freshmen year, I was never the popular kid. 

I wore Chucks, they wore Nikes.

They would laugh, they would snicker, I spent days in the library in a corner crying.

Begged my mom for those white Nikes, rent was due, fridge was bare.

I got those fresh, White Nikes. They still laughed.

Those white shoes taught me to love myself, appreciate what I have and to work hard for the things I want.

"Say we can't always be fly, We gon' be good long as them sneakers white."
