A long long time ago one of these models was called Vienna if I'm not wrong, the white with red stripes.

He wore Adidas, like the other 3 members.


On most of the other tours, he wore ballet shoes [img=/images/smiley/msn/whatchutalkingabout_smile.gif][/img]

I have these:

They are the closest I could find that look like the adidas worn in the Magic Tour.

I've always loved the black and white stripes shirt of Roger from the Magic Tour but never could get one even similar. Long years later, the "emo" fashion has adopted this kind of wear and can be found almost in every teen cloths shop.

The shoes Freddie wears on the magic tour are Boxing boots. I have two pairs of these, one exactly the same as Freddies and another in black with white stripes. I'll rake them out and see if they have a name of some sort.

Not sure, but I've heard he wasn't too fond of wearing socks.
