It was the cherrywood 16’s that did it for me. My friend rocked them to school during the last week of class in 7th grade and remember seeing how clean they looked. Loved that it had a reversible gator. I was completely in love with them, almost obsessed with them. The whole summer of 2001 I was begging my mom to get them for me. They were $100 in GS sizes back in the day, which was really expensive for GS sizes. I was used to wearing white Air Force ones. I finally ended getting them in August 2001, and welp, the rest was history from there.
