“The retro style is coming back and I wanted to tap into that market, that old school stuff”.

For Tyga, the sneakers are all about nodding to a period in sneaker culture that did a lot for the movement. He mentions the rise of Michael Jackson & other celebrities that were affiliated with the brand.

Personally, these sneakers are too much for me and not something I’d wear, but I totally get where he is coming from and love the inspiration.

What do you guys think? Would you wear the new LA Gears?
