Finish Line streetwear finds that never go out of style (and make great gifts)

Whether you look to the DIY punks, skaters, or surfers of the ‘70s and '80s or the rappers, musicians, and socialites of the ‘90s and Y2K, there’s plenty of style inspo to be found in the streetwear they made popular. What’s more, thanks to the dizzying, of-the-second microtrends that populate social media, everything is up for grabs. That means styles ranging from Chuck Taylors and high-heeled Timberlands to baby tees and bike shorts all count as iconic streetwear that never go out of style. We found our favorite designs (including classic checkerboard Vans slip-ons and luxe logomania sweatshirts) to give and get this holiday season, every single one of them on sale at Finish Line. (Because the only thing better than an iconic style is a throwback price to match.)

The North Face Kaveh Quarter-Zip Hoodie

Part hoodie, part raincoat, this smartly-designed, lightweight, 3/4-zip shell may have design roots in Y2K sportswear, but is even more sleek than its predecessors, thanks to a kangaroo pocket large enough to accommodate keys and a phone; fabric thin enough to fold into virtually nothing for easy packing; and fabric that’s both warming and water resistant — without the volume of a puffer.

SHOP: The North Face Kaveh Quarter-Zip Hoodie, Was $109, Now $75, available at Finish Line

Birkenstock Essentials Arizona EVA Sandals

Whether it’s the teen in your life known for wearing the latest social media aesthetic or the seasoned sartorialist who counts neon as a neutral, fashion lovers know a shock of color never goes out of style. (Ditto for the classic Arizona shoe from Birkenstock). Serve both in a gift that is featherlight and so comfortable, wearing a pair feels like walking on thick and cushy yoga mat.

Vans Classic Slip-On Casual Shoes

Some things never go out of style — and slip-on Vans in a classic checkerboard print is one of them. Whether you’re hooking up a fresh pair for a dad who had them in the ‘90s or a first pair for the kid who swears by the surf-and-skate lifestyle, this lace-less style is an easy gift for the guy or girl who’s always on the move.

Converse Chuck 70 High Top Casual Shoes

They may have been created for basketball players back in the 1920s, but Chuck Taylors have managed to stay in style for decades to come. Check ‘90s West Coast rap videos, photographs of L.A. Chicano street style, and of-the-moment snaps of today’s most stylish actors and models to see why the shoe — whether worn by girls or guys — is forever on point.
