If there is a pair of shoes that represents the world showa era if I may say, this a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars! They barely changed since their creation in the late 1920’s! My dad played basketball with them in the sixties and seventies (with 2 pairs of socks, that was the trick, he used to say) and I have always had a pair since I could. In the 90’s when I was a student they were out of fashion and super cheap. Not related the cool guitar behind is not mine but Mu Chang aka @yawara_ya ‘s one. That is a Aria Pro II M series, product of the 90’s despite its retro look. And he plays some cool psyche rock with it. Stay tuned, record is in the making!
