Sex: Both
Type of clothing: Shoes
When it was popular: 80's
Description: They started out as outrageous neon colors with cut twisted leather on the side. They were probably the first company to come out with 2 sets of shoe laces. They became very toned down in terms of colors. In the late 80's they had a cheap boot version that fell apart after walking through a puddle.

These are quite possibly the most comfortable (and fashionable)shoes I have ever owned. I have the gold "workout" shoes with gold laces and the white "shooters hightops" with white and silver glitzy laces.

I still have my pair of the trainer boots, with 3 laces - 1 pink, 1 white and 1 a mixture. I wear them for gardening and for washing the car!

It was about 1989 - I was full on into Thrash Metal by that point (lol) and found black LA Gear high tops that looked like motorcycle boots- with the steel rings at the ankles and a chain that draped along at the back of the heel... Most. Badass. Sneakers. EVER
