Tales from The Shoe Crypt: Circa 1980 Nike Classic Run Shoes Unearthed-Waffle Racer, Mariah, Terra TC
My friend and college team mate Scott Slater was known in the day as somewhat of a pack rat. He did not disappoint recently when during an email conversation with a number of old Dartmouth runners he disclosed he had stored away a number of circa 1980 or so Nike classic shoes, some brand new, never worn.
Here is his collection of classics. They are oh so close to what today passes for "minimal" shoes:
Nike Terra TC
I wrote about the Terra TC here in a post about classic 70's and 80's running shoes.
Nike Track Spikes
The famous Nike Waffle Racer
Ever run in these? Your recollections of how they felt? Race memories?
