By August 12, 2015Fashion News, Sneakers

Step in to the game; reinvent the 90s sneaker.


The 90s revival has taken over; infiltrating every single style from Denim to Sportswear to the very latest; the sneaker.

Reborn and restated, the trainer has outgrown its sporting origins and has pushed the boundaries of modern day fashion; it is now the ultimate staple for every man.

So when it comes to seeking out your next sneaker, it is always a cherished moment. Yet finding a style that will surpass trends, provide versatility and create an air of individuality isn’t always easy. But PAUSE is here to help you evade the sneaker pandemic and put your best foot forward this season – via the 1990’s.

A new, mischievous wave of 90s sneakers are emerging; embracing all of the original features of their predecessors whilst being updated through contemporary, exclusive colour hues and collabs.

Coming of age, Nike TN‘s are no longer just a misty-eyed memory. Defining the regeneration the TN is the ultimate statement style right now, combining unrivaled levels of comfort with the unmistakably stylish silhouette; the 90s called and these sneakers are back.

While the sneaker world moves fast- with new releases dropping daily- it pays to make the right choice; so assert your style with throwback inspiration from the latest sneakers.

Aside from the TN takeover, Air Max 95’s are ripe to wear right now too. PAUSE loves the all-black Air Max 95’s; the ultimate contemporary style in combining retro releases with wearable, minimalist black detailing.
