  • Generic Brand Tennis Shoes

    What's up everyone? I'm sorta new here. Been surfing around for a few weeks but only made a few posts. Anyway, I was reading the generic soda thread and it made me think of when my parents used to buy me the generic brand tennis shoes when I was a kid. Anyone remember Jox and ProTech 1000's? I think I must have been in Junior High before I got my first pair of sneakers from Foot Locker. It felt like I was spending a fortune when I put like $40 into a pair of tennis shoes. What off brand sneaks did you have?

              I'm a solely only so my child hood had me fortunate to have name brands. I gave my old ones to my friend that had 6 kids in his family though. To this day I always buy name brands.

                    I loved my Kangaroos back in the day.

                    First I had low tops, then turquoise high tops, then electric blue hikers.

                    I think they're coming back, there's Kangaroos in EastBay now.

                    My latest shoes are generic no name white leather hightops. Thought I got a deal, but they're starting to crack.
           is what it is...

                      I got a pair of dress shoes called Alfani? Do you think they're Armani knock offs?

                            Yep, cracked shoes suck.

                            Oh I almost forgot about Moon Boots. Nothing like putting your foot inside a plastic bag, even if it is covered with foam.:p

                              What about those shoes with plastic soles? HAHAHA!

                              I remember back in the day when I had these cool looking shoes. You couldn't tell they were the generic kind until you heard me walking, especially coming out from the cold.--click click click. The soles appeared RUBBER looking but weren't!!
                              Yep, she's pretty Greazy
