Puma G Vilas. They were £60 back in 1984! I think I still have a pair of Puma Set from that time as well (similar money) so nearly 30 years on they must be a bargain

You weren't a football hooligan were you?
:unsure:

They were the ones who mainly spent that much on clobber back then.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

In the style-starved early to late 1960's of the Gwent Valleys, daps were white canvas shoes with a shallow tread ... and had been used by generations of school kids before "trainers" entered either the common vocabulary or the common home. If your parents were rich, you got Dunlop Green Flash; otherwise you got them from the Co-op shoe shop.

The only alternative was a pair of bumpers ... black daps that were styled as a boot that went over the ankles. They weren't allowed for use in cross-country or athletics at our school. Gym lessons had to be done barefoot.

I got my first pair of trainers about 1970. Gola.

They are both the coolest. :huh: How can this be? :unsure:

Still a lot of money for runners, no matter how cool they are. ;)

Sambas in bad weather as made of leather.

Gazelles in good weather as has a suede covering.

The only person I've ever seen running in Gazelles was Dave Starskey and he was much cooler than Ken Hutchinson.
