If you ask any kid that grew up in the 90’s about the style or wardrobe they rocked, you will probably get a lot of different answers. Some might have gone through the grunge phase trying to do their best Kurt Cobain impression. There were others that thought they were European soccer players and sported the Umbro shorts that were famous for several years. One of our family members still purchases and wears theses shorts even in his 40’s (it looks about how it sounds). One of the most important wardrobe accessories of the 90’s wasn’t the slap bracelet but the shoes on the bottom of your feet. Each clique had their own style with the skaters sporting Vans but then had to change to a lesser known brand as “posers” began to wear Vans. You had people sporting the big clod hoppers known as Doc Martens (not sure which category they fell within outside of “future knee problems”). The type of shoe that every kid likely had at one point or really wanted no matter what group they belonged to were the Air Jordan’s.
Jordan created a brand and a style of basketball shoe that was the envy of everybody on the playground. It didn’t matter what your background was, everybody could appreciate a good pair of Jordans and wanted their own. The Jordan basketball shoe first came onto the scene in 1985 and began to quickly turn the athletic apparel industry on its head as kids everywhere begged their moms for an over priced pair of sneakers. Not a lot has changed as we fast forward to 2014 and Jordan is still making his shoes. The difference is that we are no longer limited to just his Airness’ desired design but have the freedom of choice to choose from others. The pair that Gadgets 4 Guys noticed and immediately fell in love with were the Jordan Melo M10 basketball shoes because of their overall design and usage of neon. We don’t know if its our desire for the good ol’ 80’s-90’s neon throwback or the sleek overall design of the Melo M10’s that we love, but we do really love what they did.
