Sneakers of the past

When I was 16 years old these Adidas Sneakers were the bomb, you were virtually non existent at school without shoes like these. But, that was in the eighties of the last century, that’s how old I am.

I wore my pair then til the last thread and the soles were gone. Today we went shopping for shoes and I noticed Adidas had the collection of the eighties reproduced some time ago as Adidas Originals Continental 80 Stripes Series and except for this little red line added to the design they are exactly as they were then. Sold out in most sizes the shop manager told me as they were popular.

Pity they didn’t have my size in the shop so once I got home I immediately ordered the last pair available online, can’t wait until they arrive. Sold to the once young man but now without hair.
