FIRST LOOK: SWEDISH HASBEENS

    will you wear bowling shoes this spring?

    When Swedish Hasbeens first hit stateside several seasons ago, the young label did the impossible: it made clogs cool. Not only that, but it spawned tons of knockoffs, collaborated with H&M, and somehow made this clunky retro style totally fresh.

    Link: Swedish Hasbeens invade America.

    Given all this, then, it's no surprise that the brand is taking another equally debatable old-school design and giving it a thoroughly modern twist this spring.

    Think leather bowling shoes, tennis sneakers, and Grease-esque saddle oxfords in hues of baby blue and pink. The sporty collection is '50s-inspired, cutely nostalgic, and perfectly kitschy in the best way possible.

    Yes, this means you'll fit right in at the bowling alley or country club- but you can bet they'll look even better everywhere else you go this season. Check out the styles below.
