    As a kid, all we had were ‘good shoes’ and Keds.

    And they came in your choice of color. Either black, or white.

    A multimillion dollar industry and a new field of research trying to make shoes that are as good as running barefooted. (Of course, the broken glass and other crud makes using shoes desirable.)

    Me, Tink, and all the others kids in our day. Our shoes were Keds, Buster Browns, Polly Shoes (Tink’s favorites) and Converse All-Stars.

    You had two choices – take it, or leave it.

    We had two toned oxfords or tennis shoes. I prefered my flip flops or barefoot. Sadly, it’s not safe to go around barefoot anymore. These days it’s running shoes for the back support, not running. lol

    @Dani Rice

    So true. And just after WWII, tennis shoes were black or OD green

    $10 Traxx tennis shoes from K-Mart. We couldn’t afford Keds or the other brands.

    Bub’s a simple man with simple wants and needs.
    Not what you’d expect from a guy who scored a goal off of Gretzky’s butt, back in the heyday of the Oilers.
    Way back before he even met Betty…

    In the 50’s there was no K-Mart and Keds were $1 at the grocery store.

    Looks like all the shoes there only come in black and white.
