E.T. Shoes from Buster Brown

Buster Brown was the one company that could get me excited to go shopping for new shoes. Not only did they offer swell Care Bear themed shoes, they also had E.T. shoes. I must have begged for these shoes plus a bunch of other E.T.-related clothing and toys for months, but I never did get a pair. So while I might have looked snappy in my swell E.T. t-shirt and belt, my shoe remained woefully plain.

Still, when I watch this commercial even now, that old sense of excitement returns and I can’t help but sing along, “E.T. Shoes from Buster Brown!”
