9. Adidas Stan Smith Vulc in Collegiate Gold

The ’70s got a rep for all the “fake” fabric, but suede footwear first really took hold in the decade thanks to the Puma Clyde, Walt Frazier, and boots in various psychedelic colors. Adidas’ Originals line has been going hard on the inspiration from previous decades, like the standby Stan Smith, above. The vulcanized version of the model in suede mixes durability with high-end suede in all kinds of colors. Our favorite is Collegiate Gold, which is the perfect way to channel decades of the past without committing to the color for your whole outfit.
