    Before I hit the jackpot I was stuck with the likes of Keds and PF Flyers and then it happened. For Christmas I received the coveted Chuck Taylor white high tops and I instantly became "Cool at school" (At least in *my* mind). What was your 1st pair of sneakers that you consider cool?

    I liked these Danskin sneakers I got - my Mother found them on sale, and they had the "dancer" logo on the side. It wasn't Reebok which was the cool-girls sneaker, but it wasn't K-mart either - they were really unique. Loved 'em!

    Nike Air Tech Challenge. I USED to be a big Agassi fan.....before he went bald. Which apparently, was much sooner than any of us knew.

    I think my sneakers with plastic Snoopys and Surfs on the sides were pretty cool.

    Hi-top leather Pony's in 1980. I thought I was so cool in 7th grade. However, I didn't get laid until I was a freshman in college over five years later. I guess the shoes didn't work for me.

    OMG! I remember when I was in Jr. High, someone tried to put down my sneakers by asking, where'd you get those at, K-mart? I said nope, SEARS! :p :lo5:

    Yeah, I remember some girl in Jr. High saying to me, "I used to have the same pair of pants as you...but then my father got a job."
    I think she ended up in juvenile detention. :)

    1967, my first pair of "Cons".
    Sometimes known as All Stars.
    NEVER called Chuck Taylors.

    And by 1970 you had better be wearing them with a big ass pair of socks all pushed down and sloppy looking, because we all were imitating Pistol Pete Maravich.

    At least the white kids. :c
