It was time to get some new kicking around runners, not sports playing shoes, as I was down to either my walking shoes or more business-type shoes. I decided to buy some that brought a nostalgic feel to my life. I wore the black ones (and white ones) all the time when I was a kid 'cus that's all we had to wear. They were the only running shoes available. So I bought a black pair of high tops. Pure nostalgia! Then, because they had a buy 1 get one at 50% off sale on, I decided to get something that didn't exist when I was a kid, so I was getting' kinda edgy. I wanted green ones, but the didn't have them in my size, so I got red. N-i-i-i-c-e! Chuck Taylor Converse All-Stars. For me, a walk down memory lane!
