Those retro Skechers from your childhood are making a weird comeback

What are thooooooose.

IF YOU GREW up in Ireland in the noughties, chances are you had a pair of these runners.

The Skechers D’Lites were a must-have back in 2001, especially the holographic ones.

Sure didn’t Britney Spears even wear them!

Well, if you still have your old pairs, prepare to drag them out of hiding.

They’re almost as baffling as the Balenciaga messes from a few months ago.

How is this happening?

Who let this happen?

Well, Skechers themselves claim a ‘revival’ is happening.

They’re currently for sale in Ireland with prices ranging from €36 to €90. Would you be well?

Fashionista advises that you pair them with:

Oversize overalls, denim everything, velour tracksuits and even a fanny pack thrown in the mix are being styled with the right amount of irony and an air of je ne sais quoi that is causing a break in the quietness.

Quite the vision. This is the world we live in now.
