IF:Memories: "Converse"ing with my skateboard

When I think about the things I tried when I was young I get chills. There is no way that I would go down a big hill today on a skateboard. I still have a scar on my arm to show my children that I was a daredevil in my youth. When we were on skateboards there was no such thing as wearing elbow and knee pads, or even a helmet. When it came to fashion you knew you were in style if your parents could afford to buy a pair of converse sneakers. I've really admire the new boot pair of converse sneakers, I don't know if I'm cool enough to pull off wearing them, so for now I just admire them.Inspiration from Pink Sherbert.

I so know what you mean. I'd like a pair too. I'm actually quite enjoying the whole '80s revival. I had four wheeler skates. And was just as "gnarly dude".
