What goes around comes back around again! (“Copy Copy Copy Copy”) If you’re old skool you picked up on that hip-hop reference. (If not, there’s always Google. Don’t feel bad, honey). You also probably rocked a few of these seven pairs of sneakers that made their debuts in the 7os, 80s and 90s and have come back once again for trendsetters to embrace. Never been a sneaker head but looking to be one? Maybe start with some of these fresh kicks…
Tracee Ellis Ross rocking the Jordan 5 Retros—first released in the 90s—like no other can, with a blazer and a Birkin. Certified StyleBlazer!
Vans Eras were popular among Southern Cali BMX riders and skaters in the 70s. We doubt Rihanna’s doing any BMX riding in that dress. Although, we wouldn’t put it past her.
Chris Brown loves some Adidas Campus, the same kicks worn by the Beastie Boys on their ‘92 album cover.
Cassie recently wore some sick Nike Blazers that were originally released way before she was born in 1972.
Even though MIA had yet to make it to America when these came out, we can’t help but to feel that Reebok 54 11s suit her perfectly.
Teyana Taylor posed in the Air Jordan 10 Retro “Chicago”s. The singer was only four when these first came out in ‘95.
StyleBlazers, which throwback kicks will you be rocking this Summer?
