Vintage “Skips”

To my knowlegde these are vintage “skips”, “regects”, or “generics” that kids would get when they really could not afford a pair of name brand sneakers.  Kids in those day (1970’s- 1980’s) hated to be seen wearing this type of sneaker because it meant they were poor & had no style.

Some of you might even remember a jingle that went like this:

“Regects, they cost $1.99.

Regects, & they fit so fine…”

I don’t remember the rest.  If you do please post it!!
