Doc Pop’s got sole!

A few weeks ago I placed an order for a size 12 pair of Colchester Rubber Co. shoes. After exchanging a few emails with lines like “Your shoes have shipped.” and “Your not really a professional yo-yoer… are you?” I was offered my first highly lucrative shoe sponsorship.

I’m being totally for serious… I’m now sponsored by the Colchester Rubber Co., the makers of the original basketball sneaker! (Skip to the bottom of this post to learn how to get a pair of Alphas for $18.92)

What does being sponsored mean? First off, Colchester Rubber will be sending me out to more yo-yo contests. Having been a sponsored yo-yo pro for many years, I’m used to traveling around doing yo-yo contests… but this time I get to use any yo-yo I want! It’s going to feel so good throwing my gold plated H-Spin yo-yo or my titanium Sovereign yo-yo at the Missouri State yo-yo contest without worrying about my sponsor finding out! BTW, Missouri States (or MoYo) will be the first contest I attend as a Colchester pro.

So, you got sponsored for yo-yoing? Not exactly. Yo-yoing will probably be the biggest part of my sponsorship, but I’ll also get to do so much more things too. For those of you who know me, you know I have a lot of weird skills and hobbies. Cartooning, sewing, and maybe even some music will all get tied in with my sponsorship too, but I’ll talk about that later.

Does that mean we’ll finally see a Doc Pop shoe? That’d be awesome, right? Nothing’s certain yet, but a shoe wouldn’t be totally out of the question. At the very least we’ll probably see some clothes featuring my art. Possibly even a re-release of this classic design. Yes, I just referred to my own shirt design as a “classic” and yes I did assume that everybody has been waiting all their life for a pair of Doc Pop shoes.

As part of this big announcement, Colchester Rubber are extending a special “Doc Pop discount” to my Twitter friends and readers of this blog. For the next few days only, you can buy a pair of the Alpha shoe, which are reproductions of the original Colchester Rubber shoes made in 1892, for only $18.92! The normal price of these shoes is $45!!! To get the special discount, send an email to docpopoffer@americanheritagebrands.com and you’ll receive a response with your discount code and instructions. This discount is only good until April 1st, or the first 200 pairs are sold, so if you like these sexy shoes you’ll have to be quick.

The better buzz we generate about this special offer, the sooner I may get to release my pair of Doc Pop designed kicks, so please help spread the wordhole! Besides, if you order a pair you may get your own shoe deal too:)

    Congratulations on the sponsorship, and thanks for the offer! I jumped in as well.
    Their lovely brown color is just screaming for some [gentle] steampunk mods.

    dryoyo, I didn't either, so I just forwarded my paypal confirmation to sales-at-americanheritagebrands with that.

    I know right? I'm definitely going to mod a pair somehow, but they seem ready made for the clankers. I wonder if there's a steampunk basketball league out there?

    Darnit, I only saw this deal today via Irina. Still, congrats on the sponsorship. This may make you the first Nerdcore person to get a shoe deal. Plus, 45 bucks is still a good deal for shoes like those.
