Canvas shoes, also known as pumps, gym shoes and plimsolls. Used throughout South Wales in the 60's and still in use. Origin unknown, but definitely not from 'Dunlop Athletic Plimsoles'. Dying out as a word mainly because the item itself has been replaced by the ubiquitous trainer.
"I wish we didn't have to wear daps for gym. They just don't look cool."

daps stands for digitally accentuated pounding system. The system was invented in the 1960's for greetings where two people fist bump in a variety of individual styles and manners.
Yo shawty gimme some daps (complicated greeting ensues).

Def: Bounce (skim, skip).
Like a stone skipping across the water

Like, when an NHL player scores a goal, and he skates along side the players' bench his gloved fist bumps off all his teammates' gloves, that's a DAP.

2. "yea but were gonna have the DAPs all day tomorrow"
3. "damn, well cleans ya out good"

Yo wait up Larry! I cut the back of my daps off in order to achieve a hipper look before venturing out this evening. Now they keep dropping off my dang feet.
