A History of Old People Rockin’ Heat

a history of old people rockin heat

You can NEVER be too old to rock sneaker heat. Don’t believe us just watch…

When you get old, you’re probably still going to wear sneakers. If sneaker blogs are still around when that time comes, chances are you will see a photo of yourself in a feature similar to this one. We can all agree that it’s normal to see aged people wearing sneakers, but it’s not everyday we see them in a rare or trendy pair. That said, we present our readers with A History of Old People Rockin’ Heat. Enjoy!

    Fantastic post TSG. Back in the summer of 2011, I was on a road trip with my pops driving from Atlanta to Orlando. It happened to be the weekend the True Blue IIIs came out, so I stopped in Valdosta, GA to cop a pair. After listening to me for three hours, my pops must have been geeked up, cause he bought a pair also. He is 73. And like a rocker kicker, he has not worn them yet……. Wear Ya Kicks Dad!!!

  • http://www.TheShoeGame.com G-Roc

    @Almac305 – I don’t remember but you def have to find that pic!

  • i_luv_kickz

    @G-Roc LOL all of us be laughing but this will be all of us in the future. And there will be a lot of us cause we are kinda the start of sneaker culture so in the future there will be more old people like us rocking heat than the young kids. LOL. These old folks are just the cool ones. In the future there will be a lot of us old and rocking heat. LOL

  • CoolOldDude

    I know it’s an old post but still a funny one. @i_luv_kickz I hate to burst your bubble but the sneaker culture started around 30 yrs ago in the mid 80’s. Why do you think you see people 40+ like me rockin’ heat? We were the young generation back then. It’s just much easier to find other kicks lovers now and not be limited to who you knew or were exposed to in your home city.
