Brown Suede tennis shoes
Recently I was reading Robert B. Parker's Promised Land, published in 1976. Spenser's description of his shoes caught my attention: “I drank my coffee and admired my Adidas Varsities, in rust-colored suede. Excellent for tennis, jogging and avoiding injury through flight.” It reminded me how attached I was in the same era to my brown suede Adidas Tobacco shoes, a sort of work-casual variant of running shoe that I used to walk all over Paris, Manhattan, and wherever I found myself.
Assuming that I haven't overlooked a viable source, are there any shoe models out there that are anywhere comparable? Brown suede, running-shoe style, no garish logos? I've been settling for vaguely similar Dunhams or New Balance in recent years but it's like the lightning bug vs. the lightning.
