thats real, i never bought a pair of jordans or basically any shoes over bout $80, and the $80 ones were just once cuz i aint gonna spend no 150 on shoes. you would think that steph could make just as much as some high priced players shoes cuz so many more people can buy these

glad to see a player in the NBA actually doing something that ALL kids can take part in.

i never spent more than $90 for a pair of sneakers. if u can't dress fly without $150-$200 shoes then u ain't got no style to start begin with. now boots and dress shoes, that's a whole 'nother story.

yo Marburry gonna make mad doe for this...selling shoes for 15 beans on top of that there some iight ball sneakers to. Hes planing on doing it. An i feel him on that cause sneakers are outrages on prices nowadays so hes actually selling he sneakers at a very low price i mean i might not cope'em but i like'em.

Definitely a good way to give back the community. That should help out a lot of parents sending their kids back to school with a fresh toe game.

Knicks star Stephon Marbury is putting his name behind a pair of $15 basketball shoes that he's hoping will give underprivileged kids the chance to wear sneaks fit for the pros.

The black high tops drew rave reviews yesterday from the critics who matter most - young hoopsters.

"They're comfortable," said Mylique Owens, 13, a seventh-grader from midtown, after he tried on a pair of the sleek kicks at the famed basketball court on W. Fourth St. yesterday.

Owens couldn't believe his ears when told the price of the lightweight sneakers.

"Fifteen? Not 5-0? 1-5?" he asked, incredulously. "This shoe could easily go for $70 to a $100."

The groundbreaking sneaker, the Starbury One, is Marbury's attempt at combating the trend toward astonishingly high-priced basketball shoes.

Air Jordans, the sneakers that revolutionized the industry, now go for as much as $180.

The Starbury Ones are far less expensive than even the second-tier Jordans.

"I paid $130 for these Air Jordans that I bought four months ago," said Lenart Williams, a 20-year-old from Harlem. "To get them for $15 from Marbury, I think these shoes are fly."

The sneakers, which will be sold only at Steve & Barry's sports apparel stores, will go on sale tomorrow.

Produced in China, the shoes are constructed using the same materials as the other top-end basketball sneakers on the market, said Howard Schacter, chief partnership officer for Steve & Barry's.

"[Marbury] had a vision. We had an expertise. And together it became a match made in heaven," Schacter said.

Marbury has vowed to wear the shoes he's hoping will enable disadvantaged kids to feel like stars.

The mercurial guard's benevolent intentions were not lost on the young players a.ssembled at the W. Fourth St. court yesterday.

"I feel him for doing something like this," said Mamadou Harvey, 18, of the lower East Side. "Not everyone can afford $80 or $90 shoes."

them sh*ts are ugly. That's my opinion. Then again, I'm not much in the habit of buying shoes for playing rather than stunting with them. I kinda gave up on American B-Ball shoes. I fu*ks with Italian and European sneakers and sh*t.

hopefully they sell it online or a store that's actually more popular
the lowtops look pretty sick, i like the tan and the white ones. thats cool that he is selling these joints so cheap, this will help out a lot of families that cant afford to buy their kids those expensive ball player shoes. good on him.

thats a nice idea, shoes dont need to be $100 +, if you put them cheaper you would get more sales and end up with the same amount of profit in the long run.

marbury isnt goin to even play in these...how cowardly...u want someone to buy your cheap bball shoes but u wont even wear them on the court...this is a marketing scheme and he thinks he is doin the right thing by sellin them so cheap...what about the broke ankles and knees that are goin to be caused by these shoes
He is going to wear these in games...
