A lesser-known shoe from the 1970s has been reissued, specifically the Pony Topstar Ox trainers.
A lesser-seen basketball shoe is back on the shelves – the Nike Bruin Vintage trainers.
Looking for a non-nonsense trainer with pedigree? Check out this latest reissue of the Puma Basket trainers, offered up in white with black detailing.
The trainers have been around since the 1970s, pre-empting the better-known Clyde, but like that shoe, designed initially for the basketball court. Still loved for their old school looks, the Clyde is reissued here with a premium white upper, contrast stripe and a style pretty much faithful to the original.
Limited numbers (as is the case with almost every trainer reissue these days), you can bag a pair for £55.
A cut above your average old school plimsoll, the PF Flyers Archive Reissue Center Lo basketball shoes takes things back to the beginning.
In this case, we’re talking 1953, with the latest issue of the Center Lo being a replica of the original basketball shoe in a choice of five colours, two of which are pictured above. Details are much the same as you would expect – a canvas upper, rubber sole, cushioned footbed, ribbed toe guard and a diamond pattern outsole.
£45 is the price if you want a pair.
