These Retro Men’s Sneakers Prove The ’90s Are Back

Sneakers are going back in time for spring. The latest men’s kicks for spring ’18 took cues from the ’90s, referencing the decade’s chunky silhouettes and colorful accents.

Retro sneaker silhouettes showed up on the spring ’18 runways of men’s brands such as Dior Homme, Bally and Hermes. In the footwear-specific space, we saw the trend continue on at a variety of price points, from contemporary to high-end brands.

The key to pulling off the trend? Stick to neutral sneakers — like styles in a grey or white leather — and, instead, opt for colorful accents via racing stripes. Chunky shapes are also a must-have, a silhouette best worn with more tailored apparel.
