    Sneakers you alway's had to have as a kid...or whatever.

    I was in the Childhood memory thread and NetWorker sparked an interesting memory of mine.

    Most kids pick out a certain brand of sneaker and a certain model and always have to have that model sneaker replaced with an identical pair when one pair wore out.

    Most of my friends were into Converse All Stars back in the late 60's early 70's but I always had to have Puma Clyde's in blue sued with the white stripe. I don't know how many pair I went through but I remember when I finally stopped wearing them. I was around 13 years old and started wearing more of a hiking boot and then later went to all white Reboks then went to Nike & then Vans. I still wear Vans today. But in my younger day's only the Puma in blue would do. My mom used to get so mad because they became harder to find. In fact I think they stopped making them and that's when I finally switched to something else. They later started making them again but by then I was over them.

    Post up your favorite / s must have item as a kid whether it be a sneaker or some other had to have item. And include the years you had to have such item.

    I remember a brief period of time, in like third or fourth grade, that I absolutley had to have one of those cheap, plastic, colored bongs.

    All the other kids were into rolling joints. Not me. Had to have the bubbler.

    Mine was red with indentations on the "grip" area; you know.. cuz those things can be slippery with Del Taco and Dorito cheese dust on your hands.

    Edit: Kinda like this one:

    As teenagers, we once built our own bong out of a PVC pipe and some other goodies. It leaked badly when taking a draw off of it. We named it "David", after a guy who was the biggest loser in town at the time. Seemed appropriate.

    Net, I found these online for you. Perfect for wearing when "all high", playing frisbee and stuff.

    Actually, I grew up in Central Florida. Was a bit into skateboarding, but that was in the late 70's. I remember when Vans were "new".

    I had em in the mid-late 80's.They were all I wore when I was into BMX/Freestyle/skate during grade school,middle school,and early high school.I can't remember wearing anything else until skate shoes became popular.My dad even had a pair of blue and grey slip-on's.You could order them in all sorts of custom prints and colors back then.

    I now have three pairs of the regular style Vans and I love em

    Hawg yes, Sims, Gordon & Smith, Tracker trucks, Bennett trucks, Road Rider wheels, that's the era of skateboarding I'm from. Dogtown and the Z-boys was just starting to go off back then.By the 80's I was out of skating and into moto-cross.

    OMG, you are bringing back memories long forgotten. I used to ride wheelies on my board for a long ways. We used to sneak into a closed local skate park at rip it up until the cops came. Then it was skaters scattering in every direction like a disturbed ant's nest, lol. Those were the days. Care free....

    Yeah, Skateboarding was pretty much born in So-Cal. And you were there for it! If you look closely at that picture, you can see the "coping" we made on it (the ramp) by nailing some wooden dowel to the top edge. Had to grind the axle, or you weren't cool.

    More like scattering like Cockroaches. Ahh the memories! nothing better than thinking back to a simpler time carefree kid's with zero stress. And toys that would make kids of today scream for their mommies.

    Wallabees. Either that or Converse All Stars.
    If you didn't wear these you were not cool.
    Our parents hated the fast wearing gummy rubber soles.

    Mid 80's I always had Vans, Airwalks or Converse All Stars. I still have Vans today, then I picked up the Vision street Wear shoes I always wanted a few years back.

    Hawg that's funny we had a guy in our crowd who's last name was Watson. He was always pulling absent minded stuff. It bacame a joke with everyone and we would always say "don't pull a Watson".

    When I was young I wore Desert Boots. They were worn by boys and girls. These have made a comeback and GAP is selling them this season

    When I was in highschool we didn't wear boots in winter (despite freezing northern temps), we wore sneakers. My favs were red and white Adidas Gazelles

    I was so stoked when I got a pair of Reebok Pumps. I think I must've been 9 or 10 years old.
    Pump it up and I could jump 10 feet higher!

    Being a teenager in the 70's, I always wore either Chuck Taylor Converse or Pro Keds. Would wear holes in the bottom from skateboarding and doing 360's. Then, in 10th grade, I ran track and starting wearing Nike's as well, blue with a white swoosh.

    Are you ready boots?



    I remember wanting GoGo boots, but I was too young ... and had to wear those Desert Boots ^

    Later my mother-in law gave me a pair of her vintage GoGo boots. They are so groovy

    Anyone remember Zuba pants? Late 80's or early 90's, I think.

    This Halloween, I did a promo video for a non-profit, gratis, (spook house kind of thing) and as thanks they gave me a pair of tickets, so we went. My wife insisted that we "dress-up". I'm not really one for that kind of stuff, but I said I'll be an "80's Dude". She went as a "60's Chick".

    Anyway, I still have my Zuba knock-offs from like 20 years ago. (couldn't afford the real ones back then).....and I just ripped up an old tee shirt and Susie found this zebra bandana, ala Eddie Van Halen.



    I'm just estacic that I could fit into my pants of 20 years ago! Last Halloween I was a good thirty pounds heavier, and it would not have happened.

    However, if only the two bands played, one would have to play first. My vote is VH. Let DL have closing honors...or is it "on her"?

    I always sucked at math. I'm an artist. I've heard that each of us is generally gifted toward one way or the other.

    Why do you bring that up, wondering what shoes Mr. Sticks was wearing? Vans, of course...

    Those who understand binary and those who don't.

    Because I truly, completely, and utterly suck at math.

    To be perfectly honest, I could sketch a copy of you wearing the concert pants in the pic you posted above and it would be perfect. The flaw in my talent is that I don't have the patients it takes to do that sort of thing anymore. Not for a long, long time. Nowadays, I hop on my bike and watch art from there, sometimes in town as I pedal by , and sometimes from nature when I'm up on the mountain. Either way, we are surrounded by art which is anything natural. It's math that defines most everything that is man made. That's how I see it. Philosophy 101, class is excused.

    Hawg, two things. After back reading this thread a little, I see how it looks like I was ripping on your art. That was not the case at all. I just thought it was cool that I remembered you posting your diagram last year. I hope you didn't read into that that I was dissing your art. I knew very well that was a diagram, and not a work of art.

    Another thing, if you really don't know about binary, the number "2" in binary is 00000010.

    It is comman in binary to drop all the "zeros" after the last "one" (binary numbers read from right to left)...so in binary, the number "2" is commonly written as "10",

    Just FYI, I wish I was "all-high", but alas, that isn't the case here.

    Math class dissmissed.

    Sadly no I never got to see Randy play. I was a big fan, though. He was from a city just a few miles from where I live. I did see Quiet Riot play right after Ozzy stole Randy from them. That was just as heavy metal was budding into power.

    I'm too dumb where numbers are concerned to work out my binary age, so I'm just going to use this thread as a sneakers and defacto skateboarding thread.

    When I was 13 it was pink Chucks and a Vision Vex-cave:
    Sneakers you alway's had to have as a kid...or whatever.-image.jpg
    Through high school it was taped up Vision shoes and a Roskopp, with the frontside 'boneless' as my signature trick:
    Sneakers you alway's had to have as a kid...or whatever.-image.jpg
    By university I was back in low-cut chucks with no socks, riding a blank deck and finally making an attempt to do some new-school riding. After about 100 attempts I finally landed a kick-flip down four stairs. Sadly that was never caught on film.

    Back in the Old Country, when I grew up, sneakers did not exist, we all had to have these from Tuf Shoes:

    They had a removable compass that lived in the heel, and you could take it out when you got lost... (!)...

    Only problem was you always lost the little fukkers, or someone would steal yours if you took 'em off anywhere... They were a hard currency back then. They also had animal tracks on the soles that you could handily refer to to figure out what animal you were tracking, but if you look closely, they will only show UK animals... no cougars or bears there! I could never understand why stoats and squirrels were the same size as stags and foxes, and whay a fox terrier, but no labrador or Great Dane The other mystery was that they had sheep and goats on there, but no cows or horses??!? WTF??? I always wanted to meet the guy that decided what to put on there.

    When you grew up a bit, Dunlop Green Flash were the closest thing to sneakers.

    I had a bunch of Desert Boots too...

    If they had a compass how did you lose them.

    Hmmm... right after you wrote this I got a suspicious spam email from Australia advertising cut-price Uggs.
    Anything you'd like to confess?

    Mate I'm a kiwi.
    We're a hard bunch down here. Normally it's jandals (or flip flops or whatever) or nothing... Winter included.

    When I started skating I didn't even own a pair of shoes I could skate in. I had my school shoes and some jandals and that was it. I skated in bare feet until I wore through the soles of my feet and started leaving bloody footprints. At that point my mum finally conceded I might need some shoes.

    I know you're a Kiwi but that makes you a neighbor of you-know-where, and a local of that part of the world. So,....

    I'm in, I'll take a pair of short tan thank-you very much.

    I've been an UGG fanatic since the late eighties. Nothing feels better after a cold day of snow skiing or coming out of the cold surf. No socks just slip your tootsies in bare foot. Yeah buddy! Plus chicks dig them.

    I've been an UGG fanatic since the late eighties. Nothing feels better after a cold day of snow skiing or coming out of the cold surf. No socks just slip your tootsies in bare foot. Yeah buddy! Plus chicks dig them.
