Step back in time with our vintage-inspired sneaker picks...

In the last few years we have watched nostalgic fashion resurface into mainstream trends, from the 70's right up to the 00's. Style has taken a step backwards into a retro colour palette and classic shapes, with Nike at the forefront of re-releases. Need some kicks to pair with your vintage band tee & baggy jeans? Look no further!

Nike Dunk Michigan State 

With all the classic design features of the dunk, in a bight yellow and navy colour way, this shoe is the perfect basic for any fit. The pop of primary yellow is what gives these shoes a true 80's feel.








Nike Dunk Spartan Michigan State Green

Next on the list, the same Dunks, different colour way; Spartan Michigan State Green. In 'true to your school' colour blocking, this style is clean & versatile, reminiscent of college teams in the 80's.


Nike Sacai Undercover Maroon

The Nike Sacai Undercover Maroon isn't a vintage style, however it does boast some retro qualities. For start, this shoe comes in various colours, with this style in particular showing a vintage maroon & primary blue palette. The chunkier sole & tread hints at the 'dad sneaker' trend. 


Yeezy 700 Wave Runner 

It's hard to categorise Yeezy as vintage, as the brand isn't even 10 years old, however it's not hard to see the hints of retro inspiration in the Yeezy 700 Wave Runners. A chunky sole, mesh panelling & running trainer style is reminiscent of the 'dad trainer' era. Not forgetting the pocket hints of neon orange.



Nike Air Jordan 4 Oreo

Did you think we would forget the Jordan 4 Oreos? No chance! 

Nike's ICONIC partnership with Michael Jordan first developed back in 1984, the pair have established one of the most famous and iconic athlete-endorsed brands of all time. With a clean white colour palette and certain similarities to the Air Jordan 4 “White Cement”, consisting of many traditional features such as the grid mesh netting on the quarters, the oversized heel tab, the Air unit beneath the heel, and the famous Jumpman on the tongue in "Fire Red".
