I think I do not remember what shoes I wore growing up, although I remember a few specific pairs. There were the Army surplus high-top sneakers my father got me. I tried dying them red, but they turned purple. I got teased a lot at school for wearing purple high-tops. This was the sixties, not the nineties, so purple shoes were not cool. I remember wearing these shoes called pound-a-pair that my mother got me. Their “thing” was that they were supposed to be light. Mother also bought me Wellington boots two times. For some reason I remember the Wellingtons.
