This is a blast from the past! I had a pair exactly like these when I was a child. Terrific nostalgic image Fran.

Very Kool! Congrats on your sale!

Really nice! v/f

Wow I had forgotten all about this type of sake!!! This dose bring back some great memories as a child. I remember no one could ever find the skate key!!! Congrats on your sale!!! LF


I had this very pair or one just like them. It was really something to know that they would last forever because all you needed to do was move the screw and the skate would be a size larger. f/v fav

Fran Riley replied:

Yep, they seem like stone age now, lol. Thanks Nancy!

Simple and hours of exhilarating fun...and I was always so scare!! Beautiful memories Francis, love them!!! F/V.

Fran Riley replied:

Indeed! Thank you Clotilde for your comment, vote and fav!

Beautiful image...evokes great memories of countless after-school hours of roller skating with the neighborhood kids on skates just like these. We got to know every square of sidewalk pavement on the block; which ones were slate-smooth and which ones were so rough we could only "run" across to the next smooth area. v/f

Fran Riley replied:

And go around on the grass where it was too broken! Yes, I spent hours on my skates and was SO excited when I got the white, high topped skates! I was on them constantly, even up and down the stairs in the housing complex we lived in, lol. Thank you for your visit and v/f Barbara!
