Takin’ It Back: Favorite Kicks
On this late edition of Takin’ It Back, old school shoes.
When I think about what I used to sport as a kid, I had some nice shoes back in the day. I wore a lot of what the modern day “street wear” heads all have now, like old Vans slip-ons, Nike Air Force…. I even had a pair of British Knights way back when. What I thought to be just average shoes turned out to be the most sought after variety of kicks today.
I went through many phases of shoe types too, starting out with your run of the mill sneakers, eventually turning to hiking boots (it was all about Hi-Tecs), then back to sneakers again. One of my favorite shoes were a pair of Nike Air Raid Peace basketball shoes, the first Airs I ever bought/owned. Most kids were into Jordans, little did they know I had one of the rarest models of Nike shoes on the street.
Sadly, those shoes met the fate of my older brother stealing them from me, and using them until they fell apart.
