Sneaker Quote

I am thinking of a nice "Woody Allen escorts Betty Ford" kind of sneaker.

From Time (!):

"The sneaker is not so much an object as an idea, a symbol of values that America has always taken pride in: social and physical mobility, practicality, informality, even rebellion (such as when Woody Allen wore a pair of Converse high-tops to escort First Lady Betty Ford to the ballet in 1975)."

Can't find a good pic of this right now.
