But just in case you’re wondering whether all this Lisa Frank nostalgia had run its course yet, I’m here to tell you that, no, no it has not. Because this week, Reebok announced the release of a limited-edition Lisa Frank sneaker — and children of the ’90s collectively lost it.
There is a slight catch, though: The shoes aren’t available for purchase online or in stores. But they are available to two lucky winners. To enter to win, tweet your answer to the question, “What’s your favorite trend from your back-to-school days?” at @ReebokClassics or @LisaFrank. And then sit back and pray to the ’90s gods.
That’s right, just imagine whipping into the school parking lot at morning drop-off, rocking your comfy AF Lisa Frank PJs and matching sneaks, and truly embarrass the hell out of your kids. (MUAHAHAHAHA.)
For the back-to-school themed collab, Lisa Frank teamed up with Reebok to design two pairs of the Reebok Classic Leather Sneaker, which basically look like every folder you had in 4th grade just exploded all over it, in the best way possible. And speaking with Reebok, it seems that’s all by design: Frank says she used some of her fans’ most beloved characters on the shoes — many of which were created over 25 years ago.
“I’ve always been a sneaker girl and I’m forever on the lookout for fun new styles,” Frank told Reebok in a recent blog post published by the retailer.
And this isn’t her first foray into the sneaker-designing world, either.
“Sometimes I even make my own sneakers, adding height to a flat pair of lace-ups,” she shared. “I used to paint my sneakers and everybody loved them!”
Um, how could they not? These bad boys basically transport me back to my glory days. (Not saying I peaked in elementary school, but … it’s a strong possibility.)
As far as Frank’s concerned, taking one of Reebok’s most classic sneakers and combining them with her classic ’90s designs was a no-brainer.
“Rainbow colors and fantasy characters never go out of style,” she shared.
Better write that on my tombstone!
