Growing up in south philadelphia in the early 80's ,this term would have been used in the ghetto for any old raggedy ass,nasty,beat up shit kicker that all of the school kids would have accused your mother of buying at the salvation army,but usually of the chuckie's variety,YOU KNOW short top with rubber tip.They were often found hanging ,like christmas ornaments from every telephone line.Those were'nt cool then,during the pre hipster era,it was shell top and gazzelle's,naw meen?Oh and just an FYI, in those days,the salvation had underware bins.For real.
And there was even a song...bo bo's, bo bo's, they make your feet feel fine,bo bo's, bo bo's,they cost a penny and a dime... Amagin that as a kid. Southwark 1984.
