Oh the memories Loved to roller skate - even though my genetic problem with my ankle made it painful to skate - really loved the feel of the wood floor under my feet as we skated to the music at the local Skateland. Hated the smell of these used shoes - wonder how many people wore them over the years.
Awwww yeah! Outside my apartment building was a relatively new, beautifully smooth stretch of sidewalk. These roller skates were my constant companion in good weather...and they adjusted with the handy-dandy key as your feet grew.
Vintage Roller Skates...you had to have a skate key to work them....loved when I had some to skate with friends!
Olivia Newton-John as a muse? In the 70s, sure. The Solid Gold Dancers as her crew? Yup, totally. Gene Kelly as a past fling? Well, it gets tricky, but they make it work. Roller skating and singing in the mix of it all? Now that is true genius.
