Nike launched its iconic Air Jordans in 1984, and while they never truly went out of style, they’re having a huge resurgence in 2018. Pair these high-tops with skinny jeans or rock them with a dress this season and you’ll exude casual-cool vibes.
Do you remember those ugly sneakers your dad wore that embarrassed you? Well, now they’re all the rage, so much so that the style called “dad sneakers” is majorly on-trend right now. (Balenciaga even offers a line of them priced at $895!)
