Kicks from ’72 are so ’07

Not sure how I feel about Nike bringing back the look of running shoes from the 70’s – the classic designs are fly but I yearn for the day retro doesn’t feel so “forcefully cool” – mind you, they’re made to look 30 years old fresh out of the box! The thought of a $200 pair of distressed nylon Cortez makes my skin crawl. I’m sure this will be a big hit with the hipster and fashionista sets. I hear the next big thing wil be socks with stretched out elastic, holes and reek of wet cabbage.
