It's a bit unsettling that the laces don't appear to be tied in any way.
lol @ marbs. that's what i thought too
the neighborhood of my left ribs sell drugs, but my right lung fights crime
the shoe laces look a lil wierd... but i love it still
i think it would better on a dif color shirt 2....
I love the design except for the boxiness. Maybe make the bottom and side lines uneven, more organic-looking? Would still buy it though :)
why is everyone talking about selling drugs?
I think the solid black colour, juxtaposes the rest of the image wonderfully. The only negative, is that the shoes, seemed to be glued on, rather than tied on.
damn! i was just working on a design just like this. great minds think alike...
elliegantz, shoes hanging on a wire like that usually mean that drugs are sold in that area.
already been submitted once. the biggest thing is that it symbolizes a drug deal. I'd still wear it though.
i've always heard some kind of negative affiliation with shoes over powerlines as well, either drug, gang, or violence related. :\
I actually have a shirt not dissimilar to this. Tut mir leid
I have never heard of the reference to shoes over a wire = drug dealer around. I always thought it meant someone was a jerk and threw someone's shoes over a wire.
I know a house which has 5 pairs thrown over a wire next to it. Wonder what THAT means...
Maybe some color in the shoes or something. The birds are a nice touch.
no way the black adn white makes it
and about the drugs thing
who cares it still a fukkin sweet tee
Snopes neither confirms nor denies the drug symbolism: http://snopes.com/crime/gangs/sneakers.asp
that pole seems out of place in some manner.
Very over done.
I think that shoes over a wire actually means drugs are sold in the are but gangs are competing over the area and as a result someone was hurt/killed (drug related violence) Anyway, I do like the design.
well i would i buy it
i really wish this wasn't just in white.
thanks everyone for all the wonderful comments!
best shirt on this website!!!!!!!!
The power pole is from Illustrator CS3 examples in the goodies folder, that kills it for me. Would look great if it was just silhouettes but I love the idea.
my childhood right there
