Is Big Masha arrogant, materialistic, and out of touch, for wearing GOLDEN sneakers?
This debate is occuring on our "brother" site presently. I think these JERKS who want to criticize our BIG Masha (as opposed to our beloved little Masha, Kirilenko) need to stand down because she was wearing the sneakers/trainers her company gave her and she never brags about being rich and she is a sweet girl. Also Maria S. does so much for charity that we have no idea about behind the scenes. However, I think it is pretty stupid of Nike to throw this out there in the midst of Roger and Maria organizing and participating in benefits for Tsunami relief and hurricane relief, respectively. There really is something distasteful about the whole "our athlete is wearing trainers with real gold in them" while 25 percent of the population in Russia is incredibly poor. I don't like it one bit but until someone proves to me that Big Masha is a cruel and uncaring materialistic winner takes all kind of girl, I am going to give her the benefit of the doubt.
