Once a week on a lunch break I wander into the village where I work and check out the local charity shops looking for vintage bargains.  Last Friday, on one such trip I stumbled upon these bad boys – Nike high top trainers – or if you’re reading this in the States, I’m talking about sneakers! 

Being a child of the 80s I distinctly remember all the older ‘cool’ kids wearing these, usually in bright neon colours, but never had the pleasure of owning a pair…in fact by the time I was a teenager ‘Red Levels’ were all the rage! 

The Debra charity shop had marked these up at a size 9, but on closer inspection I realised they are a UK size 8 – my size!  Barely worn and pretty clean, I reckon these were a bargain at £5!!

These look to me like an original 80s pair but I know Nike still sell high tops today so I’d be interested to know if they’re from the 80s, 90s or 00s – if anyone knows please do comment here to share :O)
