That style came in long before '87. I wore LA Gear BRATS in high school 83-85 sometimes with regular laces because I would pull the original lacy ones out or sometimes I would have both lacy and regular laces twisted in a cord fashion, and definitely the looser the better with the tongue out!

Does anyone know the words to the poem L.A. Gear used in the 80's? It was used primarily on radio and ended with something along the line of "And knowing she will be the mother of your children?"

I think it was 1989 or 1990 when I got my pair of LA Gear high tops. At the time they were SUPER expensive, like $60, which was unheard of, but I had saved and saved. They were white, with light purple and maybe a bluish trim, kind of looked like fish gills on the side. I LOVED them and wish I still had them for collectibles....
