Earlier this week I was looking through a magazine and I came across a pair of shoes by an old school brand that I have not seen since the eighties. I decided to bring the shoes from the eighties back. I know some of you will have never heard of these brands and I will feel super old but others will be like OMG I remember those! So check them out! I would still wear some of them today!
Keds was like THE shoe for years. Whether it was dancing or baton twirling, Keds were the shoe to wear. At first it was the canvas ones that you wore until they got holes and then they came out with the leather ones. I also think that this is where the term “BOBOS” came from. If you didn’t have the little blue Keds sign on the back (or if it fell off and you did not super glue it back on) people thought you were faking Keds and they called them BOBOS. I swear I just had a flashback….lol
OK so now the Keds brand has come out with some super cute shoes and I would love to sport them! I had to include a pic of the new Keds so you could see how cute the shoes are! You can purchase either of these styles on the keds Website.
From this for $45.00:
To this for $39.95!
I am so loving this blog. It is taking me back to the old school. I used to Wear KangaROOS to school every day when I was super young. These awesome sneakers even had a little zipper pocket for my snack money and believe it or not, they still do!!!!! I swear I want a pair of these now! Check out KangaROOS they have not changed a bit! These can be found at shoebuy.com for $49.95.
If you remember any of these, you remember Eastlands! You could not have Eastlands without knowing how to tie the Eastland Knot! Who knew that they still made shoes. The retro Eastlands still sale for $70.00 and there are many new styles made by this company that are really cute. Boat shoes are just not my style but I sported these and a pair of navy ones back in the day. Looking at the site I remembered that after these shoes came the Eastland Boots and then Buck shoes also made by Bass!
We all know that the colored pumps and the multi-colored pumps were rocking in the 80’s but what were we wearing with our smocked dresses to Sunday school? Sam & Libby’s. The ballet flat that came in every color. These shoes and this brand have made a major comeback with the same vintage flat. They also make many other designs but I wanted to feature this one! These were Shoe Station’s featured item for $29.99.
Last but certainly not least are Tretorns. I remember bugging my Mom because I wanted these so bad! I finally got a pair with a pink paisley swoosh on them before I got my leather all white ones. Like Sam & Libby they have many new styles but continue to rock with the original Tretorn on their website for $55.00
