Retro Wednesday.......





Remember Ralph Sampson?
NCAA Collegiate Player of the Year for Virginia 1981-1983
First round NBA draft pic in 1983.
In the mid-80's he was to Puma, what Michael Jordon was later to Nike!!
These shoes are in PRISTINE condition..Look at the heels!!
At vintage stores they sell from $249-$399, depending upon the condition.
Are they for sale?
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha....
Peace...!!!

But ... but if you don't wear them, what good are they? Shoes are meant to be worn. And loved and cherished and adored! This must be a guy thing with yours.:)

Sherry...?

Thom said...

Do they have toe jam? LOL.

Shadow said...

are those shoes retro??? i would mind a pair like that right now!

boots said...

retro high tops! hmmm! not going to be sold and not going to be worn? It must be a guy thing. Our sons have athlete toy figures and baseball cards that they havent opened now what fun is that?

But I do love runners, as my S.African friends call them. Best shoe invented ever! specially if they make you run faster and leap higher!

Can I pay by credit card? ha ha

You could be a millionaire, G. Let me at all that stuff!

But pristine outside is one thing...how do they smell? Your shoes your nose test results awaited.

When you retire, just open an antique/memorabilia shop..You'll make more money than selling cars!

G-man, I heart you. Do you have a warehouse in your backyard?

And I did not know about the egg-equinox thing. But at least I knew what the equinox was. ;)

Excuse me, Mr. G....we're still waiting for 'the truth' about the egg! In 55 words or less please :o)

The only Simpson's I know are Homer & O.J. One should be in jail and the other is. When the economy picks up, in about 35 years, sell the shoes.

Lulda Casadaga said...

Never heard of the guy...and I live in VA...oh wait, that was before I moved here...:D (1986)
Nice sneaks...I'm a shoe freak and have pairs that date back longer than these treasures!

My husband just shakes his head...he doesn't understand!!

Nessa said...

Only marginally related to your post - I once waited on Dr. Jay when I was a waitress a bazzillion years ago.

Mona said...

Galen?

lime said...

lol, you do collect some of the funniest things. they must be slipped into VERY occasionally.

Lynn said...

And never worn outside, I'm thinking. :)

Monkey Man said...

Very nice. I thought I was the only person to keep back issues of SI. But the shoes....the shoes. Excellent.
