computer boots

Computer boots come in many forms but all share these qualities:
1. at least 90% black
2. sneaker sole
3. the sole of the shoe is flat - 're-re-esque' rather than arched or athletic-ish. reebok is the king of the computer boot but i bet kinney and Kmart have also sold them at one time.
4. the hi-top is not important

These shoes roamed the halls of valley high when fb was a student. They caused squawking - alarm - disdain. They were everywhere. Arthur was even known to wear a computer-boot styled shoe at one time. They and their minions terrorized the aesthetics of time and place - the natural order of clothing, fashion, and anti-fashion. When they were paired with escalator pants (jeans that are shredded into long strips from the knee down - like they got stuck in an escalator) it was like a mini 9-11. There was a dude i referred to as escalator pants. Something got me thinking of computer boots this morn.

Here is the penultimate computer boot:


Another example:

50 cent and G-unit have created this new modern take on the computer boot:


There is no moral to the story here.

Fb: I must remember to thank MM for introducing me to your genius!

sloth said...

FB, these computer shoes look best when worn with black stirrup pants. Most fetching.

Computer boots, me remember. I remember them on the feets of those who whore acid wash denim and van halen t-shirts. But that was just my school.

Mountain Man said...

PS - thanks again for all your fun energy and goofy attitudes. You and AA are the BEST.

krixfort said...

hi! i am feeling selfconscious the morn. i feel like i could not converse only fixate on music machine. i dunno. i feel weird. i am eating platefuls of runts now.

fairy butler said...

i am not normal.

sloth said...

me too, fb... but you were kickin' it last night! you are gorgeous.

fairy butler said...

i would like to engage in polite conversation at some point. i promise I can. i will not run wildly around a room and almost fall on things. I was like a wild animal. shame. oh well. now I am playing computer games - unable to go forth with relic shack, etc.

Mountain Man said...

FB. Please do not punish self this way, although I woke up with same attitude. You were so much fun and me hearts you.

sloth said...

and p.s., remembering arthur's rendition of "Rapper's Delight: The Whitey Version" caused many spontaneous chortles today.

PD said...

I missed all the fun. Tears are falling.

krixfort said...

visions of sloth dressed like a mountain man kickin it to walk this way will live forever in my mind. much gratitudes.

sloth said...

oh, the embarrassment...

mountain man said...

I know!!! She did it. I wish I had had those guts. It was a beautiful sight, it was. I feared that I looked too much like a Rabbi to keep it on for long. Self conscious MM.

krixfort said...

no to embarrassment! I think I fell in love with sloth at that moment. Sloth, may I rap to you?

sloth said...

Hmm, an orthodox mountain man... interesting... could work! we need to set you up with some adorable & curly earlocks. It can be one of your many incarnations.

sloth said...

Krix, you are sweet & dispelling of the feelings of shame. You can rap in my general direction anytime!

(by the way ems, the beard-trim was performed au beige... it was actually tacked to the bulletin-board-type walls for the adornment ceremony. the cube was a fantastic mess of glitter, glue, leaf-bits, and pubic-looking hair. luckily, boss-man stayed away during the creative whirl.)
