Classic Sneaker Rundown: It's all in the Era

     If you're like me, you absolutely enjoy copping a pair of fresh sneakers.  I mean a fresh pair of sneakers will bring your whole wardrobe out.  Since I was a young kid I was a sucker for a pair of sneakers.  Unfortunately for me coming up my excitement for having a pair of fresh feet (shoes) did not always hold the same for my parents.  That's why I use to love the beginning of the school year.  It was nothing like packing into the car and headed to the store to go school shopping.  The only thing I hated was coming home after school and taking off my school clothes and shoes.  My play shoes when I was real young usually didn't even have a name officially, but everyone around my way called them jeepers, bo-bo's, and fish heads.  Damn, I remember my grandmother buying me a pair of sneakers from the Piggly Wiggly.  You know that's all bad.  Once I was old enough to start buying my own shoes though, it was on and popping.  I have assembled a collection of sneakers from past and present that I consider top notch kicks. If you were on it like I was, I'm sure your rocked some of the same kicks.  So this is dedicated to everybody who is also a sneaker fiend and as a kid spent many nights with a toothbrush, soap and water making sure they looked right for the next day.  So in no particular order here are some of my favorites.  If I left something out, leave a comment and let me know.
