The noughties gave us so much to be thankful for. Up there with the iPod, Mad Men and the many hairstyles of Justin Timberlake, was a slew of killer trainers. Along with Nike TNs, Vans slip-ons and Reebok Classics, the K-Swiss Tongue Twister defined a decade and sent secondary schools into a buying frenzy.

Ten years after heading into retirement, the tennis-heritage king has brought back its iconic flippable tongue for a new generation, but only for a limited time. The Lozan III has been retooled and revamped with modern materials such as premium leather and mesh, with added reflective details in four colourways.

In case you needed the hard sell, there are two reasons to buy the Tongue Twisters before they disappear again in mid-July. One: nostalgia, two: if they sell well we just might be able to convince K-Swiss to bring the Stripe Shifters, too.

The Lozan III Tongue Twister trainers are available now exclusively at K-Swiss, priced £70.
