As Angela (Claire Danes) made her transition from good girl to misfit rebel (who was still a good girl), she naturally acquired a pair of oxblood red Doc Martens. If you had a pair back then, they’re probably still streetworthy now.
Rachel Green, “Friends”
The mules and stacked-heel loafers Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) paired with her many miniskirts are back just in time for all those Netflix "Friends" binges.
Warner Bros. Television
Jessie, Kelly and Lisa, “Saved by the Bell”
Usually, it was Kelly Kapowksi (Tiffani Amber Thiessen) who got the most ink about style, but take a peek at the loafers on Lisa (Lark Voorhies).
Clarissa Darling, “Clarissa Explains It All”
Proto video blogger Clarissa (Melissa Joan Hart) was a grossly under-appreciated fashionista. Her thick-soled saddle shoes were among her best looks, and she could rock a combat boot, too.
Blossom Russo, “Blossom”
Please forgive the blurry photo, as it’s very difficult to capture Blossom (Mayim Bialik) in a still moment. Books could be written about her amazing hats, but pause for a moment to admire these two-toned Oxfords, too.
Buena Vista Television
Kelly Taylor, “Beverly Hills, 90210”
Hey, everyone who’s gone back to wearing white socks with black shoes: Jennie Garth did it first — and with so much attitude.
Audrey Horne, “Twin Peaks”
Audrey (Sherilyn Fenn) inspired many a young woman to go ’50s school-girl retro. Those saddle shoes are timeless.
The Fly Girls, “In Living Color”
Runways can try all they want, but they’ll never recapture the vibrance of this sketch show’s dancers (especially Jennifer Lopez).
Twentieth Century Fox Television
Daria Morgendorffer, “Daria”
Daria’s combat boots said everything about her — not that she needed them to say it. Do they make cartoon boots in our size?
Will Smith, “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”
The fictional Will Smith’s sneakers have been painstakingly catalogued by Complex here. Needless to say, there were a lot of them.
Moesha Mitchell, “Moesha”
Moesha’s (Brandy Norwood) stacked-heel boots are back on girls’ feet. Let’s keep those overalls off their boyfriends.
Ally McBeal, “Ally McBeal”
Career ladies shined in the ’90s, too, and even if it seemed that no firm would let Ally (Calista Flockhart go to court in those short skirts, her heels and sandals are welcome in our closets.
