What's Your "Holy Grail" Shoe?

So I'm sitting at home with the kiddies while my wife is at some work function and started hunting on the Internet yet again for the one shoe I would break my year long sabbatical for, The Ewing. And not the Rouges or Rouge 2's and not the Adidas joints but the Ewing's. The ones that came with the basketball key chain and were big, bulky, and heavy. They were usually suede but I do seem to remember seeing a leather pair at some point. I believe I had my first pair in 11th grade, which was '91-'92 and I loved those shoes. They were blue and grey suede and I was the only person in my high school with that colorway which gave me instant cool points. Hell, I might have also been the only white boy at my school with them too. I can never seem to find them anywhere online, not articles or pictures or anything. The only Ewing's I ever find are the Adidas or the Rouges which are nice but not the same. Maybe it;s just wanting to recapture that teenage feeling or maybe it's something different, not sure and don't really care. I just know that those Ewing's are my "Holy Grail" shoe. The shoe I'll always hunt for and will find in my size no matter how long I have to look. I did put a pic of Kris Kross' debut CD cover below since that is the only image of the shoe I can find and it"s not really a good pic. Maybe it'll help jog your memory like it does mine.

All that leads me to the question I asked in the title, what is your "Holy Grail" shoe? That one shoe that you always look for online when your bored? That shoe you ask about when you visit a new shoe spot or hit a sneaker show? That one pair you keep wishing and praying would be retroed so you could finally have it again or for the 1st time. The shoe you would buy just to have even if you knew it was for display only and you could never wear it. Always love hearing what other people say. Sometimes it's not a rare or limited shoe, it just has a meaning to them, and it almost always makes you say, "Damn, I had forgot all about those.". So leave an answer in the comments and see who's memory you jog with your dream shoe, what else have you got to do anyways?
