oh dear I just don't know! They were just like kind of thick, padded converse with a turn-over top, white with a navy logo on the side...not even Kappa...

Thanks for trying anyway! Maybe they were cons. But they were basketball, not baseball boots. iyswim

Well, thankyou everybody. I am completely stumped. Nothing seems to fit...I will have to dig out my 1988 diary and see what I wrote. blushblush

I appreciate your help though!
