How about LA Gear hightops with the three different laces that you were supposed to weave through the eyelets? They ripped off the "pump" thing from Nike. This would have been about 1991-2.
Anyone else remember when LA Gear tried to be a legit athletic shoe? I think they signed Magic Johnson to an endorsement deal and he actually wore them while playing for the Lakers. Of course I was in high school when Fast Times at Ridgemont High came out, so I had to have a pair of checkered Vans, and lots of shirts and shorts from OP, Town & Country and Zogs Sex Wax. I also had a great pair of white drawstring pants from PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) - Boy was I gnarly back then.
