’90s brands that are making a comeback
Adidas has come a long way since its humble beginnings in Germany. Its first big claim to fame was manufacturing spiked running shoes for track runners, most famously Jesse Owens in the 1936 summer Olympic games.
In the ’90s, Adidas made its vogue mark by stamping an iconic claim on slide shoes. These days, the brand is poised and ready for fashion’s slide comeback, with a more environmentally friendly focus.
Adidas is the perfect one-stop brand shop for trendy fashion must-haves.
In the ’90s, it was highly popular to display oversized logos on everything from sweatshirts to sports bags. Many brands cashed in on the free label advertising, including Tommy Hilfiger.
Now that big logos are back in style, Tommy has hopped back on the bandwagon. Whether you choose items with bold logos or simple ones, this brand is a classic. Your gifts will never go out of style.
Champion knows a thing or two about remaining fashion-forward and relevant: The company is over 100 years old and still running strong.
Champion is well-known for its longtime commitment to quality. In the ’90s, the brand hit a new high with its big logos, hoodie sweatshirts, and sturdy (but stylish) sneakers.
As these trends hit the mainstream again, Champion is dusting off old design concepts and updating them for the 21st century.
Founded in the late 1950s, Reebok has been an athletic staple for decades. In the ’90s, the brand hit it big with the growing popularity of streetwear. Today, Reebok is making a name for itself yet again. The outfit is building partnerships with fitness brands like Les Mills and jumping on the resurgence of ’90s trends.
On the hunt for a streetwear-lover? Reebok’s bike shorts, matching tracksuits and colourful sneakers make perfect gifts for any age.
Fila is one of the most iconic ’90s brands that stayed true to their original style—and it’s definitely paying off.
Anyone who grew up in the mid-to-late-’90s will remember the platform sneakers made most famous by the Spice Girls. And thanks to the ever-revolving doors of fashion, the look is making a comeback.
Fila’s mix of bold colours, thick soles and label pride makes its shoe lineup a must-give this holiday season.
90’s trends are all that and a bag of chips
One thing’s for sure: This year is shaping up to be a real millennial throwback. The ’90s nostalgia is strong and these brands are making a comeback in style. Love these trends or hate them, there’s something for everyone.
