LA Gear x Skechers Slammer

Skechers has teamed up with old-school sportswear brand LA Gear to relaunch the latter’s Slammer silhouette, which debuted in 1988 and was the first basketball-style sneaker made specifically for women. Coming in seven different colorways, the rebooted Slammer features a mid-top retro basketball design. A leather base features pops of color on the piping and quarter brace. LA Gear branding can be seen on the ankle collar and across the heel paneling. This retro relaunch has been updated with Skechers’ air-cooled memory foam technology. The overall design is kept true to the original, adding Skechers’ proprietary cushioning system for extra comfort.
