Footwear Flashback: Vintage, Retro, & Classic

Let’s take it back to the old school but with fresh new, squeaky-clean shoes! That’s right… TREND ALERT: retro-inspired sneakers with a touch of vintage look and feel.

Thrifting is great, but it’s really nice to have new shoes that haven’t been worn by anyone else. Did you know that you can get the same thrifted look when styling brand-new pieces from Journeys? We've told you before, and we'll tell you again...we always have your back! Check out the different forever favorites and well-loved looks you can create when you shop for footwear, apparel, and accessories today!

Color Blocking & Retro

Color blocking is a long-standing fashion trend. It’s bold, it’s geometric, it’s bright, and it’s an easy and affordable way to create multiple looks out of the same staple item. With style elements reminiscent of 80s fashion, color-blocked sneakers really took off in the 90s. See our color-blocked, vintage-inspired collection below and find your fave for fashion statements all summer long.

Neutral & Easy

So color’s not really your thing? No problem. There are plenty of options for the neutral-loving girl or guy that will still give that throwback energy you’re looking for. Style these with anything you’d like. Freshen them up with new fits or go full-on flashback with style inspo from decades past.

Classic & Forever

These are everyone’s favorites. The styles that have been around for what feels like forever that we grow to love more every single day. This selection is made up of the brands that your parents say, “We used to wear those all the time when I was your age.” Think about it, people have been wearing Converse since 1917! So for more than 100 years, people have been lacing up their Converse All Star styles. Were they lugged like tons of selections are today? No. Were they platforms? Definitely not. But as these brands and the styles below evolve, they keep the same classic look that inspired their popularity so many years ago. You're bound to keep them for a while.

In whatever way you choose to shop this trend, we know we’ve got a wide selection of styles to please you, with more popping up online and in-store each day. The seasons change, and trends happen quickly, but it’s always nice to know that some things remain constant for years and even decades, and sometimes even centuries to come.
