AIR JORDRAN 1 “BRED” The legend was made back in 1985 with the famed Air Jordan 1 ‘Bred’. Technically it was designed the year before, this colour way was later dubbed the ‘Banned’ as it was banned from the NBA for violating the league’’s uniform policy. So every time Michael Jordan wore the shoe on the court, he was fined $5000 per game. Still to this day, it has become such as iconic pair of shoes through time.

PRADA, When Prada re-released a version of its 2012 flame heels, they had quickly become a cult sensation!The heels were originally designed for Miuccia Prada’s S/S 12 “Women and Car Engines” show, but the 2018 versions are even more electric, in shades of neon and metallic. The new Flame Wedge Sandals feature flame cutouts tracing the back edge of the wedge with contrasting colors, making them instantly recognizable, the kind of It item that’s iconic from the get-go.

CLASSIC MARY JANE SHOES, The doll face look of the early 1960s made the classic Mary Jane shoes even more popular. With a single strap across the vamp, round toe, and short Cuban heel it was very “cute” and quite comfortable. Mary Janes came in solid colours as well as two tone combinations. Black shoes accented in white had been on trend for 50 years. Almost any colour shoe with white trim was now worn in the 1960s, as well as dark on dark colours.

REEBOK KAMIKAZE , Reebok made an appearance and it was dropping some serious heat in the 90’s. The Kamikaze, worn by Shawn Kemp, was made famous by the zigging and zagging, black and white design across the shoe. To make the shoe even more legendary, the Reign Man put down some dunks when he was rocking these.
