    Fuck yeah they can.

    Seriously, you are unsure about this?

    By themselves? No.

    When I was young, I desperately wanted some "Osaga" running shoes (they were all the rage). They had these ultra cool soles that looked like the tire tread of a motorcycle dirt-bike. My friend had a pair and I was convinced he was faster than me because of the shoes.

    After much begging, I finally got a pair of Osagas. I felt I could run faster than the wind. The depression I felt from being slow and listless had vanished. I was high on life again!

    Two days later, I tore a hole in the side of them, and was depressed again.

    So the answer is a resounding "yes".

    It wasn't easy, I can tell you.

    This was the kind of depression that went beyond the time my mom bought me "fake" Nike's, where the "swoosh" was upside-down.

    Ultimately, I snapped out of it when I told my dad I would get an amateur radio technician's license (my dad loved HAM radio for some unexplained reason) in exchange for a $110 pair of Nike's (at the time, VERY expensive). He bought them, and I didn't get the license until 10 yrs later.
