VANS Skate Shoes - MY 1st Pair - 1977 Rodney GCRad1 Wills #44 Deck Shoe Blue / Red Authentic
I remember this pair of VANS very well. They are size 4.5 and I bought them in 1977. I think I ordered them from Val-Surf as no one was selling VANS in the state of ALABAMA in 1977, or at least in my woods! Kids laughed at me the first time I wore them to school. They had never seen them before. I did not care if they laughed as I knew they were skate shoes and were from California. I found the Val-Surf advertisement in Skate Boarder magazine. There was no internet back then!!! I later sold…
