“Old school is good school” they say. That’s never rang more true than with the sneakers everyone is after these days. After a solid year or two of the reigning ugly sneaker, the retro vibes feels fresh. Designers are clearly all for the trend, given the number of collaborations on the books this year, from adidas x Alexander Wang (think ’80s-style aerobics) to Nike x Sacai, and Converse x JW Anderson. Here are a few favorites that are about to lend on the shelves of stores at the best shopping in Miami.
Adidas Originals Superstar available at Bloomingdale’s
Master your street style with these on-trend sneakers, that are as retro as they are futuristic.
Nike Tanjun Casual Sneakers from Finish Line available at Nordstrom
The 90’s are alive and well thanks to these Nike Tanjun sneakers. We love them paired back to a graphic tee and some denim.
Reebok Club C 85 Vintage available at Bloomingdale’s
We’re swooning over the newest revival from Reebok, the vintage Club C 85. The “C” stands for Champion and the shoe was originally launched in 1985 as a tennis shoe. We love it with everything from your favorite pair of denim to a sun dress (or skirt).
Puma Suede Sneaker available at Foot Locker
This season brings a return to the retro style of sneakers. The design of this Puma sneaker has a vintage appeal combined with luxe suede construction. The shoe features Puma’s classic stripe design, lace-up style, and a durable rubber sole. The sneaker now offers vibrant-colored hues.
ADIDAS Originals by Alexander Wang available at ADIDAS
So fashionable it hurts. A throw back to the 80s in the best possible way, and good to match with everything in your closet.
NIKE X SACAI LDV WAFFLE available at Nordstrom
In collaboration with Japanese high fashion label sacai, designer Chitose Abe fused two iconic Nike shoes for a hybrid, double-themed design. This special edition silhouette combines the Nike LDV and Waffle Racer and features double tongues, shoelaces and swooshes with a co-branded Nike x sacai logo on the heel tab.
CONVERSE X JW ANDERSON RUN STAR HIKE GLITTER available at Bloomingdale’s
Representing the evolution of Converse on the streets, the iconic upper of the Chuck Taylor is remixed with the new Converse Run Star sole. It also features an unapologetically bold EVA midsole, finished with a rubber heel wrap and distinct Star placement.
