If you grew up in the early to mid 2000s, then you’ve definitely seen tokidoki everywhere you went. The Japanese-inspired lifestyle brand was a staple of y2k fashion and its culture, with their iconic heart and crossbones logo and various cartoon characters.
With the revival of y2k fashion in the last few years, it goes without saying that tokidoki is making its comeback – and what better way to do so but by collaborating with Skechers for their new SKECHERS x tokidoki collection?
Nostalgic & Iconic Design
Luckily for us, we were sent their Skechers Uno sneakers for a review. Right off the bat, we can see the cast of tokidoki’s beloved Unicorno characters and other adored personalities featured all over the box. Nothing screams y2k more than fun, crazy patterns of characters we all know and love!
The shoes adopt the iconic tokidoki heart and crossbones logo but with a twist: it comes in bright blue, pink and yellow hues. This simple pop of colour and iconic logo design truly embodies the y2k spirit, all while keeping a clean and minimalistic look — perfect for any outfit for any occasion.
Comfortable & Stylish, Too!
Wearing the shoes on a regular basis has proved to be both comfortable and stylish at the same time. The shoe comes with a visible air-cushioned midsole, allowing for a classic ‘sneaker’ look while also giving us extra comfort no matter how long we’ve been walking. Additionally, the cushioning also gives you an extra inch or two in height, so calling all my short queens out there: these sneakers are made for you!
Different Designs Available
If you’re not the biggest fan of the design we recieved, fret not, as the SKECHERS x tokidoki collection comes with three other designs that are sure to spark your interest and nostalgia even if this one did not. Whether you’re a fan of tokidoki’s all-star cast of colourful, unforgettable characters or if you want something on the simpler side, this collection has it all.
Featuring the cast of tokidoki’s beloved Unicorno characters and other adored personalities, their Sunny Street lace-up fashion joggers and Skechers Uno 2 retro-style fashion sneakers bring tokidoki’s playful characters to life with their fun colour-block leather and allover print designs! Meanwhile, the collection also offers their Upbeats, designed with colourful pipings and pops of tokidoki character designs on its outsole – talk about being subtle but striking at the same time!
When it comes to expressing yourself in unique ways, the way your dress says a lot about the type of person you are. In their collaboration with tokidoki, SKECHERS hopes to bring to life the playful characters and prints we all know and love from our childhood – allowing us to express ourselves in a playful manner all while reliving the nostalgia of the 2000s at the same time!
