The 80’s are back baby!
Founded in the first iconic era, Californian lifestyle and athletic brand LA Gear are back with a vengeance and we’re the first to have it. Worn by sporting and entertainment legends of the time like NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Paula Adbul and Heather Locklear – these sneakers were a status symbol on the streets, gyms, courts and classrooms across the US. With a range of chunky, basketball inspired kicks including The Slammer, Dowtown and City Lights (that light up when you walk!!) – these sneakers are the statement you need to take your style to the next level.
Available exclusively at Platypus Shoes – shop now at select stores and online.
To get you in the full 80’s spirit – here’s how you can rock the decade’s most memorable trends:
The 80s were a go big or go home kind of decade, so if there is one thing that defines it’s fashion, it’s neon, neon and even more neon. These shades popped up everywhere from aerobics class to the skating rink. This trend has made a major comeback in today’s fashion as well (seriously though, have you scrolled through IG lately?), we especially can’t get enough of neon-coloured kicks. Get your glow on with our Platypus-exclusive Superga 2750 Cotu Neon or Stance X A$AP Ferg QTR socks.
Meet you at the roller disco! Roller skating was the 80’s favourite hobby – so what a better way to roll with the homies than in some Impala Rollerskates. Not your average roller skates – this Melbourne-based brand brings back the yesteryears of skate, with an unforgettable heeled boot shape in fun retro-inspired shades.
