I liked....Joey Boots.
combat boots. like a good little punk rocker.
I had a pair of red boots....my daddy hates those red boots.
i first had doc martens. but i mail ordered them and they were a bit big. also, i went with the steel toe, cause it sounded cool, in case i had to kick any posers in the head. but it made them look even bigger on me. they just didn't look right and when my uncle asked if the frankenstein look was in, i knew i had to get something else. so i got a pair of army boots from a surplus store. they were cheaper, more comfortable and better made than the docs. wonder what the fuck happened to those, i loved those boots. in HS i'd put spikes through the lace holes and sometimes replace the laces with safety pins. i was hardcore. a hardcore nobody, but i think some of that stuff helped me not get my ass beat. i was kinda small, but with my weird shit, the jocks and rednecks figured they didn't wanna take the chance i'm psycho or had a pact with the devil. so they mostly ignored me and pounded on others.
the only thing that unites us...
Bought a used pair of these off ebay, they were all beat to shit from actual use in a mine. They looked awesome though, but the material they were made of did not do my feet any justice in the Houston humidity, at the end of my school day, I'd get home and take them off, my socks looked/smelled like I stepped into a puddle of sweat.
not in HS, but I wore these for 8 years when I was climbing telephone poles.
Fixed that for you.....
Had a pair just like them in 1976....WTF was I thinking??
