Here’s Rihanna, I mean, Rita Ora in the July 2013 of Interview Germany. In the issue, she talks about the time she met Jay-Z. When she greeted him, one of his bodyguards stepped on her new Air Jordans. She bent over to clean them but apparently that caused great distress in Jay-Z. He told her to never to do that and took her sneaker shopping.
“He said ‘Hello’ – and just in that moment, one of his bodyguards stepped on my shoes,” Rita explained. “Brand new Air Jordans. So I knelt down to rub them clean, ’cause that’s what you’re supposed to do.”
Miss Ora continued, “But Jay-Z grabbed me by the shoulders, pulled me up, and went, ‘Don’t ever do that. Come with me. And then.. we went sneaker shopping. A whole suitcase of sneakers!”
We have first world problems but here’s a first world solution. Dirt on shoe? Don’t even think about cleaning them. They are now trash. Give them to a homeless guy or something. It’s time to buy 20 new pairs.
