Speaking of velcro sneakers, I've recently found an unused pair of old school Kangaroos at my local Salvation Army. They're brown suede with the two velcro straps, and you can't forget the secret pocket in the tongue. They have to be one of the most fun sneakers I've ever owned, plus being that everything old is back again, think Pony, these are the epitame of the 80's. These also have to rare, thus not every other clown will have a pair, for I have never seen anybody wear Kangaroos since I was a youngin', nor have I yet to hear them mentioned of lately. Does anyone know if they're are still even in business? Also yesterday I just picked up a pair of black sneakers more in the Prada tradition. They look almost exactly like the Dolce & Gabbana soccer sneakers in their one GQ ad, but they lace down much closer to the front of the toe. I think these too will be fun for they're more slimmed down and pointed (me grudgingly getting out of that squared toe look), plus I think the low lacing will be/ is in style for I have seen Versace and some others doing it which looks good with more pointed toe shoes. I'd be interested in hearing what the rest of you all think.
