On the heels (pun intended) of the Mets acquisition of Johan Santana, a nearly as exciting announcement is the release of Nike “Dunk Low” NY Mets “House of Hoops Exclusive” sneakers.
Hat tip to MetsToday reader archeress for the scoop.

Also, hat tip to my wife, who points out that you can customize Chuck Taylor sneakers with any colors you like at the Converse website. Choose the “Make Mine Red” link and start customizing a pair of Chucks!
In addition, after you waste away a weekend afternoon customizing your Chuckie T’s, it will actually help someone else — 15% of the net sale goes directly to The Global Fund, which helps fight AIDS/HIV, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.
Since I’d rather help fight deadly diseases than support a company that bankrolls scumbags such as Michael Vick, you can guess which sneakers I’ll be wearing to Shea next year.
