What memories do you have of “Starsky” shoes OR KT26s?

Sentimental as Anything

STARSKY shoes

Were you an impressionable type who would buy things because TV characters had them?

I know I was!

When Starsky & Hutch was on TV – I remember wanting (and getting) his style of running shoes – the blue  and white Adidas ones.

And Starsky was always running fast in the show chasing bad guys. Must have been the shoes that made him so fast!

A matching Starsky 1975 Ford Gran Torino  would have been great too – but all I could afford was the shoes?

Actually my parents bought the fancy  Starsky shoes. I was kid.

What about you?

Maybe you preferred the funky platform shoes of Huggy Bear!

Later when I was at university – another style of shoes I remembered loving and having was the KT26.

Apparently these shoes were very popular in Papua New Guinea – because they were so hard-wearing even in harsh conditions.
