I Could Just Cry...

I found these Nike Roller Skates (circa 1980) on Etsy today...and I could have CRIED!! I had this EXACT SAME PAIR when I was 12 years old. Mine even had those weird blue-green rubber wheels that didn't match the blue stopper...just like these. Am I really this old?! I found myself staring at the photo and longing for those roller skate races down the street with my girlfriend Lisa (we were usually using them to chase bad guys during our pretend episode of "Charlies Angels"...ahhh, the good old days. Nary a worry about the seriously TWISTED ANKLE in these with no side support!) My favorite part about these is the simple design...just a darned running sneaker bolted to a roller skate base. They don't make things this stupidly simple anymore! Never the less, they are for sale if anyone is looking to bring back their youth. Please someone...buy them before I do.
