There’s a lot to love about the early 00’s; Those Macs with brightly coloured plastic a la Zoolander; Clothes in joyously futuristic metallic; And, of course, the iconic Tongue Twister sneaker from tennis-heritage kings K-Swiss. You’ll probably remember the Tongue Twister as the tennis shoe with a big difference. Thanks to a twisty tongue (get it?) you could completely change up the look of the sneaker, leading to near endless – well, sort of – customisation and plenty of styling options. The good news is that K-Swiss are resurrecting and updating the model, with an exclusive update called the Lozan III Tongue Twister. No what-a-mouthful jokes please.
Available in eight coveted colourways, four the boys and four for the girls, including glamorous reptile prints with premium gold detailing and some well-executed reflective, monochrome options, the sneaker not only allows for plenty of nostalgia tripping, it also looks dam clean. Oh, and with that flippable tongue piece you can once again change your look up on a daily (or hourly) basis. Tempting we know, but you’ll need to move fast on these bad boys as they’re only being sold for a limited six week period – told you they were exclusive – that began at the start of this month. We’ll take one pair in crispy ‘n’ classic K-Swiss white, thanks.
If you’re over in the Netherlands you can head to The Athletes Foot, the Take-Off if in Belgium, Sidestep if in Germany and, for those of us in the UK, these killer trainers are being exclusively sold at kswiss’ online home. So, what’re you waiting for? Get twisting.
