Editor’s Notes: 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. The overall design is kept true to the original, adding Skechers’ proprietary cushioning system for extra comfort.
