The 1990s saw the rise in style icons, such as Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, and brands like Chuck Taylor and GAP went mainstream. This season, the trends we were working 20 years ago are back with retro attitude!
Here are 5 bloggers rocking the top footwear trends of the ’90s with a 21st century update.

Star-spangled knitwear and rolled-up denim are a Converse’s best friend. Red, white, and blue never go out of fashion, and packing your outfit with a patriotic punch will make you feel ready for a long hot summer.
2. Leather High Tops

Take the ’90s to the streets in retro leather high tops and a graphic T-shirt. This look is playful and fun, and the monochromatic detail of the sneakers adds an urban edge.
3. Simple White Wedges

Nothing says ’90s chic like the classic shape of wedge sandals. Think Calvin Klein’s simplistic collection, and you’ll be right on the money. Wearing these shoes with a simple shift dress exudes an aura of elegance and class, perfect for a day in the city.
4. Classic White Sneakers

Black is the fashion color of the ’90s, and what better way to balance it than with pure white high top sneakers? Keeping the rest of the outfit sleek and simple prevents you from looking like you’ve stolen your little brother’s shoes.
5. Black Flatform Sandals
