Green flash from the past

Life

I love Chucks/Converse as much as the next person. But my feet don’t. Specifically, my little toes. So, I’ve been searching for a replacement. Without much luck. (I bought a pair of Jack Purcell Chucks a month back as a consolation of not being able to find an alternative.)

Did find something amusing on my search. These:

Dunlop Green Flash Trainers

Dunlop green flash trainers. Never has an item of footwear filled me with as much revulsion when I was at school.

Dunlop Green Flash Trainers. These trainers are now about £30 and above. These trainers were part of my school uniform PE kit. They were mandatory and totally uncool. We all hated wearing them. So much so, as soon as we were old enough to be given a little leeway by the PE teachers, we swapped them out for our much cooler trainers.

We were so ahead of the curve at school!
