Memories - Nike Vandal


Around 1984, Nike introduced the Vandal canvas high-top. I remember this shoe for two features:

  1. A removable Velcro ankle strap.
  2. Very good arch support.

Nike also did low-top versions when they reissued the Vandal, although the strap on them was a spat strap around the midfoot.
