Complex’s 20 Classic Sneakers That Deserve a Proper Retro
We’ve all been there before-a sneaker you know and love finally gets the retro treatment, only to have the brand in charge drop the ball somewhere along the way. Which sneakers are in the most dire need of a true-to-OG bringback? Complex has listed up quite a few of them, with their demands including an Air Jordan III “Black/Cement” featuring Nike Air on the back, the return of the adidas Robert Haillet, the Reebok Shaq Attaq Insta Pump IV, and more. See a small sample of the sneakers right after the jump and then get the full list over at Complex Sneakers.
