    Sneakerella

    ★★

    A pretty poor riff on Cinderella, obviously, that sees the lead turn from ball-going elegance to sneaker-infused pursuits.

They have the money to take risks, but why switch the conveyer belt off when the shelves are filled with acceptable pieces that the majority faintly enjoy? No need at all, and it is rather horrifying to see this cult-like…
