British Knights are the best sneakers ever invented. In millions of years to come, future generations will consider the 1980s the best decade ever - based on the fact that British Knights footwear was worn by 98% of hip hop and techno artists.

I never owned a pair (unfortunately), but I used to think they were cool because they were always one of the complimentary prizes on, like, Double Dare.

British Knights were dope. The new German company is producing wack skate shoe variants which should be avoided at all costs. The O.G. BK's from the late 80s are the shiznit yo!

although BK nights were great shoes they were not of the build quality you might think. I climbed a tree and the whole leather top ripped off but I still love them for remanicing about the past.

I loved Bks so much that I Bronzed my daughters first pair when she was a baby back in the 80s. I still have them on my book shelf I only wish I had bought a couple extra pairs to last me until I was 80!

Most of these came out in like 1990- 1992, very few of these were in style in the 1980s. Well except for Vans Off The Wall and Vuarnets. They were totally popular from 1982 until around 1986. I was a teen from 1981 until 1987. Boy do I remember all of the 80s!

OMG, I had forgotten about those. I had to buy each of the kids a pair before school started. 3 pairs at one time was a killer! But they all took care of their shoes. Too bad they didn't take care of anything else.

It's sad, but all I remember when I think of BK's is how many kids were attacked for their shoes when they wore them
