Much as l loved the great and good George Best, l got well and truly suckered into buying a pair of his endorsed football boots (above) with my hard earned paper round money when l was a kid.
They were crap.
That didn't stop me buying a pair of the Ben Sherman George Best trainers that were modelled on them a few years ago (now stored away in the original box).
As for my blue suede Adidas Sambas also purchased from paper round earnings....................
Magnificent. I can still remember the smell of them when l took them out of their box.
A classic of the trainer world, despite their overuse during the Brit pop years.
I think it's time for a lie down. l feel a bit giddy with the trainer fumes flashback and thoughts of Bestie.
