Students Say “No” to New Lebron Shoes









By Jeramie L Bizzle


This is the picture of the latest shoe by NBA Champion and Olympic gold medalist Lebron James of the Miami Heat

Remember when the first pair of Micheal Jordan sneakers first hit the shelves, everyone flew to the stores to be the first to own what is now today an urban necessity. Forward over a decade later, there is a brand new NBA champ and Olympic gold medalist by the name of Lebron James who has caught a lot of flock for turning his back on Cleveland and Whining almost every game.

His latest shoe entitled “Lebron X” has caused a stir in the media world for being sold for as much as over three hundred dollars in stores and online. Real shoe collectors usually camp out til midnight to get their hands on the latest fashion, but the price of the shoe leaves many thinking that it may create violence and people may be robbed over the shoe. According to Washington Post- “Nike tells stores to keep their corner in check and to beef up their security to keep things civil”. It’s hard to think how civil things can be when you have people standing out in the middle of the night with three hundred dollars in their pocket, yeah, real civil.

Students at Triton College recently partaken in a poll about the price of the sneakers and whether or not that they will go out on opening night to by a new pair of the last Lebron shoe. In that survey, only six percent said that they will go buy a pair of the shoes, while two percent said they maybe will buy it. Twenty-two percent say that they will stick to their Jordan’s, while a not so surprising Seventy percent said that they will definitely not pay no where near three hundred dollars for shoes, there were other personal answers but not any of them were censored.

As of now, there is no exact release date for the shoe, but rest a sure that you will not see many college students in line for three hundred dollar shoes when they don’t even want to pay three hundred dollars for their books for class. The shoes are a contribution to the question “How much is too much?”, and in this case, Luther Vandross answered it by saying “Never too Much”.

Capoeira Now Offered At Triton

By Jeramie L Bizzle


Over the summer, the new Capoeira class was offered to students who interested in learning about the Brazilian dance. The class offers the basics of the martial arts style of dance in addition to learning about the culture. Instructor Oliver Camacho sits with the 5th Avenue Journal to discuss the history, Misconceptions of the dance and more information about the class:

What is Capoeira and how are things learned in performing the dance?

It’s an oral tradition, its about you seeing, you tend to learn the traditions of the slavery, all those stories are learned through the movements such as the revolts. They are all embedded in the movements and the sounds that can be learned through the teachers and their students.

Distinguish the difference between Capoeira and break dance?

Well dance rhythm is universal, no matter where you are. You are going to find similar movements in modernized dance. But its whole concept is social movement, social justice, because you are talking about oppression and trying to liberate themselves, just as in hip-hop. But you have to realize they are different because they are in different times and they have different elders too.

What else will students benefit from joining the class?

Its multicultural, you will have to learn a new language such as Portuguese, learn how to play the different instruments, and of course fitness, and you’re learning the game of attack and defense. It’s a lot about balance and coordination. It offers a lot of positive things about it besides the obvious. But students have to keep an open mind and remember that all the videos can’t compare to actually being in the class.

Can you provide an update for the fall schedule so far?

I teach in various locations on and off campus, I teach in oak park called “Intuit dance studio” I teach there on Fridays and I am trying to start a credit course for students who are interested in joining, if they are interested they can always email me. If they want to start an organization I will support that or if they want to continue it as non credit, but its been positive so far. Try it once, its better in experience.

For those who are interested in taking the course, you can email Oliver at for additional information and registration.
