From FN:
Some of the most ahead of their time and avant-garde sneaker designs around are actually from the archives of top athletic brands.

 Whether it’s Reebok’s futuristic Instapump Fury, Nike’s trail-ready Humara sneaker, or the Kanye West-approved Adidas Climacool, there are a number of ways to get retro style without looking dated.

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.
