LA Gear’s celebration of the Unstoppable line from ’89-’90 continues, with its limited edition release of the Stardust. BUY LA GEAR
The LA Gear Originals silhouette was a hit in Europe not long ago; now
, LA Gear and Sportie LA are bringing the Stardust to the US, in five colors – light grey, white/blue, white/grey/green, white/lilac/green, and light pink.
With its classic look, rhinestones, and bow-tie in the back, the Stardust was one of the most popular women’s styles to
come out of LA Gear in the late 80′s. The styling is quintessential late
80′s, bringing back memories of leg warmers and aerobic workouts. Accessorizing sneakers was novel, and LA Gear led the way with the Stardust. “We are very excited to expand the relaunch of the Unstoppable line with one of the iconic women’s shoes of the 1980′s,” said Director of LA Gear specialty product Lance Jackson.
The limited edition run consists of 89 pairs, said Sportie LA co-owner
Isack Fadlon, in tribute to the 1989-90 Unstoppable line. “We actually did 90 pairs, but the first one went to my mom for Mother’s Day!” he explained.
The Stardust goes on sale the night of May 12, at 11:59PM PST at www.sportiela.com/lagear/stardust.html, and is available exclusively at Sportie LA. For more info on LA Gear, stay tuned to www.LaGearNews.com.
