Your very first tugs.........
« on: July 21, 2013, 04:33:14 PM »
Tugs,  hahahahaha.

i remember my very first tugs was ah addidas rubber ducky my dad gave me, a thirteen pegger, and although it was five sizes bigger than my feet i cherished that tugs like ah golden boot.

does anyone remember their first tugs? and don't tell me allyuh had a six pegger out the box, bc it was very expensive and very few parents would oblige $$.    :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

My first was a Mitre when I was still in Primary school in standard 4 or 5 in the early 80s.

Oh gosh Tallman. At least some Bata Shoes had pegs underneath. Dem Doric real suck boy. For those who eh know, Doric eh no football shoe either. Seeing dat yuh is a dread, ah feel yuh must be stick some thumb tacks with rasta colours at de back. Cyah believe men did actually come up with a style like dat, far less coast it and act tizik.

Meh padnah and I both had a pair of white batas.
We take black markers and colour the adidas 3 stripes on.  :D

After that it was a mitre.  I remember when I was 10 the first time walking in the school hall floors getting ready to head to the field for a match and all the students in the classes turning and looking at us hearing the "click clacks"
We felt like heroes

I seriously can't remember I do know it was a cheap Brazilian brand as the sole drop off after leaving it wet in ah bag for a week. Ah know it was the only ones my parents could afford - after some serious negotiation - that actually looked like football boots. Sorry, could'nt face the humiliation of rockin up with Bata Dogs.

After they perished; went to S&G's in San' Do to get new ones and the fella ah spoke too said they were bought out by topper so did'nt sell them anymore. Got some Puma's on sale as they was missing three studs.

On the point of Bata's, they were clearly ahead of their time. I remember the cheap canvasse ones had these plastic molded ridges fuh studs, or was it Doric? Anyway, they were much like blades on boots today. And there I was turning meh nose up at a ground breaking brand!

I feel me and grimm01 boots might be first pair to be mentioned twice in this thread.

A 3 or 4 years old mitre hand me down. By the time I get it, the leather was hard hard hard. No amount of dobbin was bringing that back.
But I used to imagine it make me kick harder.

Hand me downs. the lot in life for younger siblings.

Think of the 2022 conversation regarding reparations as the item tabled for future discussion when initially raised for negotiation during talks in 1834. A lot of intere$t has accrued.

I could have only afford tugs until I got a second-hand pair of addidas at the end of football season in 2nd form. I could not even afford a pair of JetShot which cost about 17 or 18 bucks at the time. When I see the type of boots I use to by my son, I  use to shake meh head. If he only knew how lucky he was.

My mom bought the first football tugs for me from Carly Dore’s (Ian “Chala” Dore’s father) Sports Store on Henry Street around 1963.  I was so proud when I got it.  That was a true tugs – pure leather, pegs  nailed in, and it had a cadet boot front.  In those days we used dubbin to maintain our boots.
