HOW WE DO: PRO-KEDS SNEAKERS

By Lucy Glen, 2 February 2018

When it comes to basketball threads, PRO-Keds is a pioneer of the scene. Born in 1949, PRO-Keds created its first performance basketball shoe and went on to become a favourite of hip-hop originator, DJ Kool Herc. The classic 'Royal' high-top shape was ubiquitous on the streets of New York throughout the 70s and 80s, ultimately sealing its place within the sneaker hall of fame. So, we asked ASOS Insider Jono to style his sneaker of choice three different ways. Time to get familiar...

Where better to showcase PRO-Keds than on the court? Jono reps retro sportswear via Kappa trews with an oversized purple tee, while the sneakers provide all the bounce he needs.

With Jono having PRO-Keds on high rotation, it's all about what he pairs them with. These green track pants with a steezy red side-stripe, which matches his tee, certainly do the trick. Especially with the welcome additions of a bum bag and sunnies.

Stripping things back and keeping it simple are definite elements of the PRO-Keds brand ethos. We think Jono had this in mind when he styled these monochrome pieces with the classic Royal sneaker shape – and we wholeheartedly approve.
