A Call for Research

Study Shows Those Who Buy 3 Or More Pairs Of Sneakers Annually Are Natural Leaders

It’s been said you can tell a lot about a person by her shoes. And now, as CBS 2’s Vince Gerasole reports, shoes may also say something about who takes the lead in a crisis and who follows in another’s footsteps.

New research suggests those buying three pairs of sneakers a year are more likely to be walking in the shoes of a serious leader.

We must know how many pairs of shoes Derek Jeter and Aaron Rowand buy per year!

It is only when we get a hold of these figures that we can take Sabermetric research seriously. Seriously, think of SPARP — Shoes Purchased Above Replacement Player and its partner, LQ — Leadership Quotient. What is being divided, I don’t know, but until then, you calculator nerds continue holding down the couch springs in your mothers’ basements.

    Just ask Stephen A. Smith.
