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!
