Much loved by geezers, casuals, the beautiful Burberry clad Mike Skinner and, as the Arctic Monkeys would have us believe, chav's not only here but also across the pond. American rapper Soulja Slim adopted these as his preferred footwear of choice causing Reebok's sales to increase dramatically in the New Orleans area. And anyone who rocked gold teeth and a camo bucket hat prior to 2003 knows his shit!
These days though you're more likely to find these gathering dust on the shelves of Sports Direct.
Apparently so, Mike.
With this great travesty fresh in our minds, and pay day merely a fortnight away, I ask you to dig deep into the pockets of those leather sleeved varsity jackets of yours and find 30 quid to get these back on your feet, and back on the streets.
I thank you.
