Retro style doesn’t have to look overly-vintage or outdated. Footwear News has found a few throw-back styles that are simultaneously old-school and modern. Find out more from Footwear News and shop the styles below:
Some of the most ahead of their time and avant-garde sneaker designs around are actually from the archives of top athletic brands.
See what we mean by shopping the top picks below.
1. Adidas Originals Climacool 1
With an emphasis on ventilation, the Adidas Climacool feels just as cool as it looks. Originally released in 2002, this runner remains one of the brand’s most forward-thinking designs.
2. Reebok InstaPump Fury OG Sneakers
With a design so ahead of its time buzzing fashion label Vetements couldn’t resist a collaboration, the Reebok Instapump Fury debuted in 1993, but it still somehow looks like something from the future.
3. Air Jordan 11 Retro Low IE
One of the more polarizing Jordan low-top designs, this Air Jordan 11 IE did away with the mid-top version’s defining patent leather overlays for a mesh-backed elephant print treatment.
