A matrix of Converse @ SoHo

In the 1999 blockbuster "The Matrix", Morpheus shown Neo an array of weapons in the "training environment". This wall of Converse shoes somehow reminded me of this classic scene. 


I have never been a fan of this fashion brand. In fact, I found my pair of Converse difficult to walk in. Even so, when I walk passed this Converse store on the Broadway in the SoHo district of New York city, I walked-in with my pair of Nike. I ran into this wall.


The friendly shop assistant explained the origin of the name SoHo. The name is the abbreviation of "South of Houston Street", which is a street that intersect with The Broadway. The suburb that is at the South of Houston is hence called SoHo. How Conve-nient!
