I Remember a day when ........

 I remember a day when shoes were black and brown , lace-ups and slip-on  ( a bit risque ).
For sport there were plimsolls ( daps to us ) , white and black  and of course 
 walking boots for the oldsters or those in the forces.
For the truly decadent , there was  always suede , which you brushed ( gasp ! ) rather than polished.
Inside your house , in private ,  slippers were allowed and  for the great wet outdoors , there were always wellington boots , black naturally .

 Best of all  , none of these products had a company logo plastered over them ; yes those were the days , my friend.
