Robert shoes in Friday I'm in Love

Always have been interesting in buying the shoes Rober does use in "Friday I'm in love" video. Anyone know what's the mark, model, price, etc???..

They are Reebok Blacktops. I'm guessing they are a late '80s model. I've had these in my saved searches on eBay for a couple years ? haven't found any... Only ones I did find were a newer style that looks nothing the same.   :x

Here's the link to the interview I read this in:

The question about the Roland JC-120 chorus effect was from me!  :D

These are the uglyest shoes i've ever seen but it's funny to see Robert wearing it. It's well suited to him. I don't like she shoes he wears today... :roll:

I agree with Tristan. I don't like that shoes.
But they're funny, just as the video from Friday I'm in Love.
But I suposse we can't expect anything conventional from Mr. Smith, don't you think? Even his shoes are non-conventional :D

Hello Lucia, sorry I can't speak spanish :(

But about his shoes in the 'friday' video, weren't they 'Hi-Tec' brand?
Most of the white shoes he had before (84-89) used to be Hi-Tec.
I've always want to have those black ones! yum! :)

so we're talking about:

Hi-Tec (white) (84-87)
Hi-Tec (black) (89-92) ?
Reebok BlackTop (89-92) ?
Rebook black Knight (89-92) ?
Ewing (brand? model? blacks, calendar 94)
Bunker (model? year?)) ?
(brand?) space walker #106 (2004)

I guess you can maybe see the brand in the Prayer Tour / Wish Tour book, or in the calendars. Check the calendar, you can see the shoes quite well (1987-1995) but I don't have them with me so I can't check myself...

Found Roberts Sneakers
« Reply #11 on: March 03, 2014, 17:49:29 »
Hi there,

For anyone who is interested, I've found out what sneakers Robert wears.  They've almost exclusively been some model of Hi Tecs now defunct high top line.  He also modified and I'm pretty sure colored some of the white sneakers black.  Also he takes off the hi tec logo. 
The pair I'm holding up are an old pair of Hi Tec Leagues.
The last images are old catalogue pics from Hi Tec and Roberts sneakers circa 1989. 
My friend and I have been hunting these sneakers for years.  No idea why as we don't have much interest in any other element of his wardrobe.

Sorry couldn't fit all the images, here are the catalogue pages.

Note the soles of his sneakers compared to the ones on the top right on the catalogue page.

Hello and welcome to curefans.com!

I am merging your topic with a previous one where we discussed (see above) a similar subject: what shoes Robert wears in the Friday I'm In Love video.

Ha ha - this topic somehow always comes up again and again at some point at every single The Cure forum I ever visited...

still - I must admit I did look for those sneakers for quite some time, but who hasn't?

:)
