Sometimes at an auction you bid on a lot for one specific item, you win it but the lot has a lot of crap,items you don't want. Believe me rarely does a lot have a hidden treasure buried in it.Well this "Starship Enterprise Glider" was at the bottom of a box(in a 2 box lot) and no one,including us bothered to dig through the boxes.Hell the boxes had a couple of more kool surprises also.Anyway this "Star Trek: The Next Generation" Starship Enterprise Glider is kinda kool and off beat .Produced by Playmates in 1993,this is the collectors edition and is # 42833 of a limited run .The box is opened and has some wear but as you can it's all there and still sealed

If your a Canuck growing up in the seventy's I'm willing to bet you had at least one pair of these baby's.North Star runners were the shoe of choice in Canada from the early 70's to the mid 80's .Hell your parents probably made you wear them .This was a running shoe that everyone could afford As you can see these puppies are the 70's blue really kool suede runners .They have never been worn-in and are mint .
Bata Corporation originally founded North Star in the late 1940’s in Batawa, Ontario Canada. They created the Design 38 model and line in the early 70's, which generations now know as the iconic Jogger style runner .Despite been Canadian , North Stars were not sold in Canada for over 30 years.However you could pick up a new pair in Asia or South America during that time.The North Star line was reborn here in Canada only a couple years ago in 2012.This is a real slice of vintage and iconic Canadiana.
