October 14, 1994

"My blue and burgundy plaid sneakers. They're different, and I like to be original in my shoes and my socks."

Stephanie Halcum, 17, senior, Cypress

"My high tops that I wear everywhere. They're Franklins, and I got them in the guys section of the shoe store. They're really weird. I just got them, and they're my favorite. They're black and white, and I play basketball, volleyball and football for recreation in them."

DeAmber Bishop, 16, junior, Fullerton

"These Nike running shoes I want. But I can't wear them. They cost $125, so they're sitting in the store right now."

Paul Park, 16, sophomore, Brea Olinda

"My sandals. I can just slip them on, and they're comfy in the summer. I don't like (to wear) socks."

Eleana Chatzepretrou, 17, senior, Esperanza

"My white slippers. They're comfortable, and I can wear them with anything."

Cari Ota, 16, senior, Villa Park
