The year was 1964...I was in 9th grade!
If you wanted to be 'cool', you owned a pair of Flagg Brothers "Roach Killers"!
If you really wanted to be cool, you put taps on the heels...
They could hear you comming down the hall a mile away!!
I still have mine...Of course!
And you only wore them with white socks...Of Course!!
Oddly enough, the taps saved the heels from wearing down.
See...? They still fit....
Hahahaha...look these up on E-Bay Vintage Clothing.
