Memories - Pro-Keds Two-Stripe Sneakers


Pro-Keds Royal Plus Hi-Cut in dark blue with white stripesI remember that before my last semester of college in 1977, I wanted some new sneakers. Well, I got some Pro-Keds "Royal Plus Hi-Cut" suede sneakers; dark blue with white stripes. I remember that the Nike Blazer was also available with the same color scheme, but I didn't get them. As I remember, they seemed too soft!

 

Pro-Keds two-stripe high-top in white mesh with blue stripesHere's a very similar model, but this is in white mesh with blue stripes.

 

 

Pro-Keds two-stripe high-top in white leather with green stripes and green outsoleHere's a slightly different model, still featuring two stripes: white leather with green stripes. This model also had a green outsole. Hopefully, it didn't leave green marks on Mom's kitchen, Coach's basketball court, etc., etc....
