When you show a photo of these to anyone over the age of 30, there’s a good chance they’ve used them and can tell you what they are. As for anyone under the age of 30, well, we hardly think they’ll even have a guess!
They’re roller skates from the 1970s! Roller skating, roller derbies, and roller rinks were maybe THE hottest trend in the 70s. If you knew what these were, you probably had a pair of the clunky metal strap-on roller skates that attached right to your shoes! You needed a key, otherwise there’s no way those puppies were fitting properly!
I can still hear the metal clanking on the pavement as I skated down the road. These clunky metal roller skates progressed into these brown leather roller skates!
Who can forget disco dancing while in those fancy roller skates? Basically, anything involving roller skates was the bomb.com in the 1970s. Here are some throwback pictures to bring back some memories!
