The Nineties Are Back! Or at Least L.A. Gear Is


L.A. Gear is making a comeback! With 90210 back on the tube, the timing couldn't have been more perfect for this nineties staple. (If only Jennie Garth would wear some bright-yellow high-tops.) The pair of sneakers you see at left is the first item from the revived line. These hot tamale "Fireball" kicks are just as delightfully neon as we remember, with the plum bow tie on the heel adding a modern twist. So it's like a throwback. But updated. Club Zonder Filter and Patta collaborated on these sneakers, which will first go on sale on their home turf in Amsterdam. If you hop over the pond for these, know first that we might see you there. Know second that each pair comes with a free T-shirt decorated, naturally, in Saved by the Bell shapes and neon colors. Are you getting just as nostalgic as we are looking at these? Suddenly we're dying to trade our high heels for sneakers and hit the basketball court Kareem Abdul Jabbar style. Which is weird, because as fashion girls we don't even know if our sweat glands still work.
