Not-Quite-Vintage Y2K Let's Go Bowling Shoes

Details
Okay, so there was this, like, golden era of the 90s thru early 2000s where everyone was obsessed with bowling. We're talking the era of the spawn of third-wave ska bands like No Doubt, Reel Big Fish, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Less Than Jake, The Aquabats, Mad Caddies, Buck O Nine, Link 80, and Skankin' Pickle. Suddenly every punk band added a horn section and started making ska, and every ska kid was legit ride-or-die about bowling alleys. There was even a ska band from our hometown called Let's Go Bowling.

Evidence:

 

Third wave ska and bowling went hand-in-hand! And behold, the new trend became trying to subtly steal bowling shoes from your local alley, to wear with your cut-off Dickies and checker print suspenders and tube socks in full Y2K glory.

But we always felt like REALLY guilty for stealing those shoes. Now, you don't have to! We found these bad boys secondhand and ready for their next home.
