Newly acquired, these beefed up Chucks in superb olive feature a double-thickness toe cap and metal loops at the top of each boot. Nice.

Nike Blazer 77 in white leather

Just purchased these awesome sneakers. More soon!

From the Back of my Sneaker Cupboard #37

Adidas "Wrestling" shoes, reissued a few years back. These came out, I think, as a shoe for "general" wear based upon a genuine wrestling shoe, but some wrestlers did use them for their original purpose.
