It was the 1990’s. Nike had shoes. I bought a pair at the Honolulu Costco, the one Imelda Marcos sends her people to, even these days, AFAIK. Anyway, now the same exact shoe is being sold as new as a part of Nike’s retro line:
Man, I’m old.
This was the scene on Haight Street back in the aughts (and back when CWNevius still lived in the East Bay, where he belongs and where he’d be happier) – four urban youts inside of one AMC Pacer:
(Perhaps Google should have used these cars to carry their Street View sensors around? Compared to brand-new, bright red hybrid Priuseses, a fleet of old Pacers would have attracted less attention from John Law.)
