cue visions of the two of us, wearing baggy jeans, eating sour cream and onion Pringles, listening to Waterfalls, deciding whether or not to get a ‘barbed wire’ arm tattoo. Life-changing decisions.
REGARDLESS, consider this a full-sized endorsement of wearing retro, 90s inspired sneakers in 2016 because ‘nostalgia’ is very trendy to us — trendy to a lot of people too, but still, very, very, very trendy to us
and that’s what matters most.
Lately, we’ve been wearing 90s-inspired Brooks Heritage sneakers. Our picks: the Beast and City Regent, from Brooks‘ Spring collection.
We swooned the moment we saw the pebbled leather and graffiti-like speckled mid-sole, on each respectively. A moment that can only be summed up as, ‘OMG, IS THAT PEBBLED LEATHER? AND IS THAT A GRAFFITI-INSPIRED SPECKLED MID-SOLE? OMG!”
We’re really into retro sneakers. Which serves as both a statement on our style as of late, as well as a perfect Tinder bio bullet-point. “I’m 5’11”, 175 lbs, and REALLY into retro sneakers.”
Of course, there is a 35% chance that we’re being annoyingly repetitive here, RE: loving retro sneakers, but, heed this personal anecdote: we styled two looks for a day in Santa Cruz, this past Sunday, running all over the Beach Boardwalk, and not once did anyone mention how we (BOTH) had trail mix in our teeth; instead, all anyone wanted to talk to us about were our sneakers.
Also, let’s pause on “trail mix on our teeth…”
Nevertheless, cool sneakers > teeth beset with nuts and M&Ms, surely. BUT, one would think good samaritans still exist.
This is all to say, we’re excited to see what Brooks Heritage is up to, as of late, re-producing ‘lifestyle’ sneakers from their 90s collections. WE NEED MORE. PLEASE. PLEASE. This is an ill-fated cry to our checking account to grow, given that we want these and these now… UGH.
In partnership with Brooks Heritage.
