I love sneakers and boots. Here is my collection
Nike Delta Force ¾ (white/red)
I wanted the high top version of this shoe so bad when it was out in the ‘80s. Seemed like everybody that was cool (to me) had them at the time. I almost had it. My dad was going to get me the white/natural colorway at Cox’s Fashions in Rocky Mount, but I wanted some color (plus my elementary school “rival,” Travis Thorp had that color). So we went to Leggett department store up the street which had the white/blue colorway (which nobody I knew had) but charged more for it. My dad refused to spend the extra 10 dollars to get me what I wanted and I think I ended up getting a pair of Nike aerobic shoes, or some cheap shit like that. Not a great story. Fast forward to 2004. Nike retroes the ¾ high, which wasn’t that popular back in the day, and didn’t sell this time, but Dick’s in Greensboro had it on sale (told you they were fly) so it gave me an opportunity to get something like what I wanted at a lower price than Nike charged in 1987. It’s a “pretty shoe” as my mom says and the “sure-grip” lining (my words) hold the feet in place very well. I love these shoes.
