For good or ill, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban wields quite a bit of influence.

Recently, the full scope of his juice and heavy-handedness was revealed. Those silly gooses at Bleacher Report had the nerve to post a completely benign tweet about Dirk Nowitzki tossing up an airball from three-point land, footage included.

Cuban was not amused and brought the hammer down.

Dunno if you're more discerning than Cuban -- if you're not a kajillionaire, probably not -- but if you wanna flash sparks in a more subtle way, why not wear them?

You can, with these nifty cool treads that just emanate lightning:

This embodiment of Thor's hammer crashing down can be had for a mere $63.19. How can you resist that?

With great shoes comes great responsibility. You're up to it. Probably more than Cuban.
