Seemingly a natural progression of fashion's recent dalliances in athletic footwear designed to endure specific activities, this shift speaks to the all-encompassing nature of nostalgia-driven dress and the new expectation that such pieces live up to the hardiness of their design inspirations.
Workshop Question - What 90's design motifs can you borrow from in order to entice nostalgia-minded consumers?
