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.
