I wear these shoes in the months when school first starts,because it's too hot to wear any other shoes (I drive a school bus).

We called these Croaker Sacks. They came in black, navy blue, or brown and were almost always lace-ups. The t-straps, like in this photo, were rare. They were almost exclusively worn by gang members and rough kids in the 70s in Los Angeles.
