Buying Shoes in a Garage

You see those on the left?

My track spikes. Still got 'em.

Nike, size 5.5. No idea what model they are. Bought them at Dick Pond's, back when he was hawking shoes out of his garage, circa 1983-1985.

There's little to tell. Dick was a legend in running shoes. He had them all, including my small size.

You might see only four spikes on these. Normally, they come with six, as far as I remember. They were light as a pastry, except, unlike the pastry, after wearing them, I was likely even lighter. A mere 107 lbs.
