You know when you’re stoned (or not) and you’re watching TV and every commercial seems like a spoof of commercials? And you’re, like, really not sure, even when it’s over? Well, this article, similarly, has destroyed my mind. Here’s a little taste:

BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) — Nike unveiled Tuesday what it said is the first shoe designed specifically for American Indians, an effort aiming at promoting physical fitness in a population with high obesity rates.

The Beaverton-based company says the Air Native N7 is designed with a larger fit for the distinct foot shape of American Indians, and has a culturally specific look.

Also, FYI, every post on Threadster from now on will be filed from Beaverton, Ore. ‘Cause I’m a grown-up.
