"Everything was better in the past" - everyone knows this saying! But not only our dear grandparents agree with this opinion, but also the fashion world is looking back to past decades and with their trends more and more often. This is also the case with this "new" trend: retro sneakers!
The beginnings of sneakers
It's no surprise that the inspiration here comes mainly from the 70s. After all, it was at this time that the comfortable sports shoes gained their popularity outside of the aerobics studios. Due to the increasingly comfortable clothing and wide trousers or skirts, the classic pumps no longer suited the casual style and had to make room for the lace-up shoes. However, the term "sneaker" was not coined until later by an advertising agency. In an attempt to highlight the shoes' particularly quiet rubber soles, the English verb "to sneak" quickly became the term sneaker!
Features of Retro Sneakers
Before you start checking out your parents' wardrobe, take a look at our modern versions of the "old" shoes. Just like the classic sneaker from the 70s, they have rounded tips, flat rubber soles and are made of leather! Of course, the lacing is just as important as the bright colours and extraordinary details that were as popular back then as they are today. Of course, you'll find rivets and buckles, leather applications and our trendy colours like pink and royal blue amongst these shoes, too! The shape of the trend shoes is not only limited to the original runner sneakers, but you will also find them in high top sneakers or modern chunky sneakers. The clever combination of old favourites and modern styles make the flat shoes even more interesting. If you prefer something more neutral, you can also get this cool trend in white, black or simply with fewer details. You'll find something that fits your taste here too.
