I SO love that you asked this question haha. You have no idea how long I searched and searched for the name of these shoes. They were my favorite things EVER and when I tried asking people, no one knew what I was talking about. I even used this blog to ask if anyone here knew what I was referring to— and thank the Lord, some wonderful person did. LOL.
And that was a very long-winded way of telling you that the shoes were Converse Touch EFX (link brings you to a commercial. and you’re exactly right, it was 1994). Here are a couple more commercials. Comic Book and Strange Science. (I remember the science lab commercial the best) ^_^
