Fashion's romance with nostalgia continues with the famous vintage-inspired trainers. At first, we mocked their chunky soles and retro colourways. Then, we labelled them "dad trainers" and banished them into the realm of the uncool. And now, these nostalgic (and comfortable) designs are one of the most sought-after shoe silhouettes of the moment.
If you're on the hunt for vintage and retro trainers, then look no further. We scoured the web to find the most eye-catching and in-demand trainers that offer a fresh, modern take on classic, old-school designs. Ahead are some of the most iconic kicks of 2019 that were originally designed in the '80s and '90s by some of our favourite athletic brands like Nike, Adidas, Puma, and New Balance. We've also found some beauties from luxury brands like Off-White, Burberry, Calvin Klein, and Balenciaga. And if you're keen on copping an original pair in good condition, we'd recommend checking put Vestiaire Collective, which sells certified vintage goods.
