If I had my way, I’d wear sneakers every day. Let’s be honest, they are so comfortable. Sure, I’m a fan of heels and boots, but tennis shoes are my go-to when I want something relaxed. While there are many great brands to choose from, I am old school. Today, I’m sharing some fantastic retro sneakers to buy now.
Fantastic Retro Sneakers To Buy Now – Reebok
Let’s start with the classic walking shoes from Reebok. These feature a soft leather upper for full-foot support and a comfortable terry lining on the tongue top and heel. As nice as all that is, it’s the woven vintage Reebok label that I love. 100% leather and available in several other color combinations.
You can’t go wrong with a classic leather sneaker! This is the iconic version from Reebok that I remember from the 80s. Was it just me, or did everyone stomp on their sneakers so they wouldn’t look brand new? Well, no more. The key to styling these is to keep them super bright!
Fantastic Retro Sneakers To Buy Now – Adidas
Speaking of iconic, check out these tennis shoes from Adidas. There are 17 different versions at the link, but I don’t think anything is more retro than these black stripes. These would look very fashionable with anything – jeans, skirts or maxi dresses.
Fantastic Retro Sneakers To Buy Now – Vans
Vans have been around since 1966! When I think of them, it’s usually the checkerboard pattern that I remember most, but I figured you’d get more use out of the classic white slip-ons. One of the reviewers mentioned that they hadn’t worn them since high school but they are just as comfortable as they remember. I love a good slip-on, especially when they’re comfy and trendy.
Fantastic Retro Sneakers To Buy Now – Converse
I’m starting with Leather Converse because it’s probably not how you remember them. At least I didn’t! (You’ll actually find the regular canvas ones also at the link, so never fear.) This is one of the two classic silhouettes I associate most with Converse. This low-profile, lace-up sneaker is one of my favorites, and I would love to have them in every color – white, red, and black to start!
I got my first pair of high-top Converse sneakers in 8th grade. They were part of the basketball uniform. They are a definite style choice these days. I’d wear these like I wear ankle boots. Wear them with a cute pair of jeans a skirt, or even leggings. Of course, they are available in a wide range of colors – over 30!
These are the lowest profile Converse I could find. I am always happy to wear a slip-on shoe. Is there an easier shoe to get on and off? Flip-flops don’t count, lol. There are several colors available in this style, but I don’t think you can go wrong with the classics such as red, white, and navy.
Fantastic Retro Sneakers To Buy Now –
I had to include Tretorns because these were THE SHOE to own when I was in high school. All of the popular girls wore these. Spoiler alert: I was not one of the popular ones. I don’t even know where they got them. There wasn’t a shoestore in town that sold them, and we didn’t have the internet. I bet they drove 1.5 hours to Nashville to get them. Wow! That was like another universe. No wonder I didn’t own any, lol. Well, now is my (and your) chance!
I hope you’ve enjoyed the trip down sneaker memory lane. Let me know which ones you’re buying and which ones you used to own!
