Is there any Gen Xer that didn't have a pair of Sambas at one point or another?
Me. For some reason, Adidas never fitted my feet well, so I wore Puma and Nike instead.
Way, way back in time when you could just go to the shops and pick up a pair of Nike shoes without having to enter a lottery, line up for ages, or pay a reseller, I walked in to my local department store and walked out with a pair of these:
This was back when the Air Jordans were first out, from memory, and so I got a bit of flak from other kids at school, who said that I should have got Jordans instead. However, I didn't care about basketball and didn't want basketball boots so had no idea why anyone would want a pair of Jordans!
