After the recent images surfaced on the web of a new collaboration between Nike and COMME des GARÇONS, which feature an unusual Velcro Nike Outburst, the question is: will the Velcro sneakers be the next trend of the season?

Considered - without turns of phrase - ugly, the velcro sneakers, are associated with the two most extreme stages of life of the individual, childhood and the third age. In short, we tend not to consider the aspect of comfort that velcro closures has to offer. However the brands never gave up on presenting their version of the velcro sneakers. For this reason, we decided to relive some of the most iconic velcro moments ever, and the new velcro versions that populate the market today.

Is it time to say "Make the Velcro Sneakers great again?"
