I had Suede Pumas! I also rocked the flor pink laces w/the checkered pattern on them. The corner store sold them for 50 cents a pair!

I have a pair of neon chartreuse laces in my roller skates. They "glow" under the blacklights at the roller rink.

I always wore my Adidas shell tops with my fat laces. My lace color had to match my twills, name plate belt was the finishing touch. That was me 1984-1986.
