Description
Sex: Male
Type of clothing: Shoes, Warm Ups, Jackets
When it was popular: '86-'88
Description: Troop gear always had the name written all over it- very '80s. The tennis shoes were the most expensive that you could buy, even more expensive than Reebok Pumps or the Nike Air Jordans or Bo Jackson Cross Trainers. LL Cool J had his own line of Troop sneakers and MC Hammer and his dancers wore Troop exclusively in his early videos.

Does anyone know where I can buy any type of Troop gym shoes today?? I am having an 80's throwback party and wanted to cop a pair to go with my addidas sweatsuit. A Troop SweatSuit would be ideal but I don't know where to find those either. Any assistance and or contacts would be much appreciated.. Peace! E-Luv

Had a pair of Cobra II's back in the 80's, still think they are lush, is it possible to get these anymore? As for SPX, they were really badly made, had several pairs and they fell apart after a week, crap. Filas were comfy, British Knights, bland in comparison.

Obviously knew this brand but never owned the garment... Couldn't fight good enough to wear this on public transportation in nyc. Your knuckle game better be well intact to ride the trains with this on and this was a fact, especially the jackets.
