Sneakers returning to the marketplace from the 80s is nothing new, but brands returning from the grave is a bit of a new trend. Recently we have heard of a bring back of Troop, British Knights, and even Ewing (update me please Mr. Matt George). You can now add LA Gear to that ever growing list.
LA Gear tried returning to the scene earlier this decade pulling full page ads with their basketball-prodigy rookie Luke Walton (sarcasm), but to no avail. This time around LA Gear has teamed up with Patta to put the right foot forward for this attempt at a return. Sticking to what works, LA Gear returns with the “Kid Fireball” that ads some new touches to a shoe one would expect to have seen come from LA Gear two decades ago. Patta will be hosting an event along with LA Gear on September 12th with the shoes going on sale the following day. For those of you who live in Amsterdam, the full flyer is posted after the jump compliments of Sneaker Freaker.
