Throwback Thursdays: AVIA 880

If anyone remembers Avia then consider this your inauguration into the “Department of still looking young but I’m officially old.” I clearly recall the tongues of these shoes being just as big as the shoe itself. Looking at these now, it’s amazing to know that the high flying Clyde Drexler and Scottie Pippen rocked these as their official basketball shoes back in the day.¬†Touted as being a durable shoe with performance technology and comprehensive foot cushioning, I don’t doubt that there’s a pair covered in grass stains and laying around someone’s basement along with the nylon track suit jacket to match.
