Today is Retro Day!!!
Today I am sporting my blue-suede Pumas. When I was a kid these were known as Puma “Clydes”, referring to the New York Knicks Walt “Clyde” Frazier who apparently also wore them (although not in the pictures the link takes you to). I chuckle as I now realize that I was wearing my first pair thirty years ago and these are once again considered fashionable.
In my youth you owned ONE pair of sneakers at at time and you did EVERYTHING in them (baseball, football, basketball, running, tennis, etc.) As I lace up my “running” shoes Thursday morning to participate in Atlanta’s half marathon, I’ll think about trying to run thirteen miles in my Clydes and laugh heartily.
My Pumas make me happy! I just hope they have the same affect on my company’s CEO when he stops by later today. Oops, I should have remembered that he was coming in….
I *really* want to post a picture of my sneakers. This weekend I vow to learn how.
