    Retro shoes rebirth



    Vault Van's from the Early 1980's designs are back.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    I love the high tops too, just on the young. Me, the high top time has passed.

    I love high tops. I wear purple converse All Stars, and I don't think they're out of fashion. I know plenty of people who wear them.

    I'd wear the Donald ones.

    The high tops are more for boys so I don't blame you, but I like high tops. But if you are a girl that has some then you're pretty cool.

    I remember the boys wearing them, I can't recall girls wearing them. I know our HS Boys BB players wore black Converse.

    Vans shoes, the first time I knew them to be popular brand was when my DS was about 10, so somewhere around 15 years ago, boys all were wearing black and white suede gym shoes with black soles. PE teachers had a fit 'cause they marked the gyms basketball court floors.

    Chuck Taylor's!

    Sweetest canvas shoe ever. Even my generation wore those quite a bit. I wore out many pair.

    Oh, and Nicholas high tops aren't more for boys at all. I've known far more girls/ladies who wore them.

    I've been wearing Converse since I was 15. I have 4 pairs of the Chucks. Purple, black, blue and Doctor Who ones.

    Yeah, I've noticed they've made a comeback in recent years. Back in the 70's and early 80's everybody wore them.

    Re: Retro shoes rebirth

    When I've gone into the Vans or Converse stores to try to find shoes for my nieces and nephews in Jamaica (they can't get enough of those shoes over there), I did notice that there are no mens/womens sections. The shoes are unisex, for the most part. Just a matter of color. But the black and white shoe a boy would wear could easily be worn by a girl. Good move on the designer's part. Keep production costs down.
