From the gym to the playground, with a wide selection of brand-name retro athletic shoes Journey’s has the best selection of old school classics with new school style!  Here are a few retro sneakers to try this summer.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi Tie Dye Sneaker “Converse All Stars”

There’s nothing that a good pair of Chuck Taylor All Star Sneaker can’t fix! The Chuck Taylor made its debut in 1917 and was known as “Non-Skids”, an athletic sneaker with a canvas upper and rubber sole. Later, the shoe would become the most iconic sneaker. It’s a sneaker loved by all and worn generation after generation.

How To Style:

"Converse", "Chuck Taylors", "Chucks", "Cons", and "All Stars" can be styled anyway! I love Chucks for kids because they are easy to clean and can be worn with everything from jeans to dresses! For moms on the go, Chucks are a great flat for running around! A classic black ankle pant and button down chambray shirt and a pop of color in your shoe, makes for an comfortable and stylish look. The good news, Chucks come in an array of colors and patterns, there’s something for everyone in the family!

Adidas Superstar Athletic Shoe “The Shell Top”

This iconic shoe was created as a basketball sneaker in 1969 and made popular by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the NBA and later made popular by hip hop superstars Run DMC.  The Adidas Superstar is a staple in the sneaker community and a recognizable old school favorite. 

How to Style:

The Adidas Superstar shoe is easy to style because it’s classic black and white.  Pair it with a casual Adidas track jacket and jeans for a polished look with a little nostalgia. Wearing the shell top in a casual way is the perfect off duty uniform for everyone in the family.

Vans Old Skool Skate Shoe

Vans, the official sponsor of the summer’s coolest traveling rock concert, The Warped Tour for over 20 years is retro and new school at the same time. The Old Skool Skate Shoe is the perfect shoe for the entire family that has a little edge! In 1966 Vans Skate Shoe was born and has been loved by skateboarders and BMX bike riders for decades. Now the popular skateboard shoe is a household name and like the Chuck Taylor it has evolved into different colors and patterns for everyone.

How To Style:

These are the perfect concert festival shoe, they’re comfortable, and best paired with well-loved denim, and a band tee! A perfect summer look that’s stylish and easy for everyone in the family!
