Are Kickers making a comeback?

Kickers It was the 1990s. The Fashion Police were but schoolgirls, innocent of the life of fashion-crime-fighting that lay before them. All that was to change, though, because into the young Fashion Police officer’s lives came Kickers.

Kickers were – and are – the kind of shoes that you’d generally only ever wear if there was some inescapable, practical purpose, like you had to climb a mountain or something and there was no way to get out of it. They came in a few different colours, and at The Fashion Police Academy, red was the most popular of all. No, we have no idea why either.

This year, however, The Fashion Police have noted with fear in their hearts that the Kickers have started to pop up again – most recently at Office, where they’re currently selling for £30 (or they were at the time of writing). Will this catch on, we wonder? Well, the 80s have had their comeback? Is it time for the 90s to have theirs? (Chloe Sevigny says, "HELL YEAH!)

    I had a pair, and loved them! They were blue, not red. I would probably wear them again, but probably only for walking the dog…

    They may not look very attractive in the picture, but if you live in a city where your main modes of transportation are your feet and extremely crowded buses/subways (where people are more than willing to literally step on your toes when they are trying to shove in), and you find yourself walking around quite a bit (putting several miles of wear and tear on your tired feet everyday), suddenly shoes like Kickers start to look very appealing:)

    The 90’s have already made a comeback… You can’t walk a few feet without being attacked by fluro and those strange jelly shoes.
