Cool Sneaks

Kids today! Fashion today! These colors are a long way away from my simple PF Flyer days that Mom bought for me at the local discount store. Although the design of that pair, second from the left, looks pretty close. Each spring, my Mom would restock my brother and I with a brand spanking, new pair of hightop sneakers. By late August, as I remember, the colors were indistinguishable and our toes were pushing their way through major holes, thanks to endless games of baseball, hide and seek, building tree forts and our home-made racing buggies(our version of go-carts with just kid power) and just the effect of two growing pre-teen boys. My sisters and their sneakers? Who knows. They are probably still perfectly preserved somewhere out there in sneaker heaven! Hahahahaha!

  3. Do you realize kids do virtually none of the things we did as kids? How did we ever make it through a summer without a video game or texting?

  5. Red Ball Jets! That's the brand I would get. A little red ball on the back of the heal on the rubber band. That made them official! You're funny. At the end of summer, the red ball was still on the back!
