Does anyone remember the 1996 Nike Air Griffey Max 1 or the 1997 Adidas KB8 sneakers that every cool (and rich) kid on the block had on their feet? And how much you wished you had a pair? Well, you are in for a treat – all thanks to Skechers.
Skechers’ newest release – the Skechers D’Lites 2 – is the best of both worlds. From the wavy lines of the sides (like the Nike Air Griffey Max 1) to the ‘old-skool’ Velcro, similar to the Adidas KB8) everything about these new sneakers screams ‘90s throwback’.
You get the old and the new; the ugly and the chic – all in one sneaker. Catching on fast with the ugly-chic shoe trend that is taking over the runways at this year’s fashion weeks, these new kicks have already reached a new cult status when they were spotted on several of our favourite fashionistas like Nicole Wong and fashion designer and founder of Singapore fashion brand YESAH, Linda Hao.
Take it from a true sneakerhead: These retro-style sneakers are definitely a new must-have classic.
