Where were you in 1989? Listening to New Kids on the Block? Watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
Back then the UPS shield still had a little package at the top and Nike was heavy into its “Nike Air” shoe line with neon colors and air bubble “windows” in the heels. I know because I had a pair in the sixth grade…but it wasn’t the shoe I really wanted after “Back to the Future: Part II” came out in November 1989 and I saw a pair of self-lacing high tops on Michael J. Fox’s feet!
