thought, for sure, BK’s, Troops, and Dadas were on that list, lol! Nice history given on those old brands. Little tid bit, it would have been nice to mention that Walton Payton has an endorsement with Roos. Really, I’m thinking you could have probably made it a top 10 list with Ellesse, Brooks, Etonic, Pony, Head. Just off the top...pun intended.

i had a pair of LA Lights... as a mtter of fact i think everyone in my class in the early 90s had la lights... then alot of knock off brands came out with their own form of light up sneaker. lol. what used to be so cool back in the day seems ridiculous now. haha. i wonder if kids now would think thats cool? prolly not..u would need a sneaker that had wifi to get the new generation kids attention . haha. they like "sneakers that light up? who cares." haha

British Knights, Kaepa, Puma, DiaDora, Pony, Brooks, Airwalk, Soucony, and Vision Street Wear, just to name a very popular few. Furthermore, LA Gear was actually outsold by BK and was put out of business because of their sales. Which obviously makes them more popular than LA Gear and yet was not even mentioned, LOL!

I had those LA Lights shoes when I was a youngster (born in ‘89) and they were still fresh before they hit Wal-Mart’s shelves... I remember going out with my mom and sister one night to help look for our lost dog and telling them “It’s okay guys my shoes will help us find Otis because they light up!!” (I was 4) If anyone is wondering we did end up finding our dog. As a pure bread Newfoundland he was worth quite a bit of money and he was actually stolen from his kennel in our back yard.. My uncle called my mom a couple of days later after he saw my poor dog chained up to a tree outside some dump of a house 30 miles from where we were living at the time when he just happened to be driving by there on his way to work. We called the cops, verified it was him, had those assholes arrested and got Otis back!!!
