Year Introduced: 1984

The Decade was a transitional shoe - if you look at the original design, you can see the Top Ten (from whence it came) and the Forum (where it was going). The Decade had the same "X" side panel that the Forum would exaggerate via its strap, just without the strap. The DNA of the Decade would also spawn the Ewing line, including the Conductor and the Rivalry. A significant shoe.
