A Look Back: Fall Sports ’99

A Look Back: Fall Sports ’99

“We’ve got what’s hot for fall,” read the caption on the front cover of the August 1999 Eastbay catalog. Looking back, that was actually a massive understatement. It was always sad to realize that school was just around the corner, but it was also exciting because fall sports were here. For the pros, MLB playoff races were heating up, and the NFL season was kicking off. Plus, college football was starting as well. For us kids, we were perusing the pages for our Back to School pair of sneakers, apparel, and soccer or football cleats. There were way too many kicks to choose from, as the August ‘99 Eastbay catalog was packed with a ton of new styles for the fall. Plus, they had their website up and running with over 17,000 products online. Here’s a look back at some of the classic kicks from that season.

A Look Back Eastbay Catalog Fall '99 Trail Running

Trail Running

This particular Eastbay issue kicked right off with Trail Running, which was a little random for them. Typically we saw Basketball, Running or Football first. I was totally fine with the change, as all the big brands were cranking out some dope trail runners. adidas was leading the charge with the Response Trail and Incision. They both featured adiPRENE cushioning in the heel and forefoot. Nike was close behind with some great trail runners as well, including the all new Air Terra Goatek. The Goatek had a super-grippy outsole that worked like a goat’s hoof. If Goatek, aka G-Tek sounds familiar, it’s because rapper Drake’s new sneaker also uses this OG technology. And don’t forget about the New Balance 802 – back when I worked at Foot Locker in high school, I remember selling a ton of these.

Running

Nike was churning out crazy technological cushioning advances, including visible Zoom Air in the Air Zoom Citizen, a heel Tuned Air unit in the Air Max Plus, and a full-length Tuned Air unit in the Air Tuned Max. The Tuned Max and Air Max Plus have retroed, but we’re still waiting patiently for the return of the Citizen. The Air Zoom Citizen was developed by Rick Lower, who had some challenges designing it with the new visible Zoom Air cushioning. Over time, it has become a cult favorite, however. adidas was dropping plenty of popular runners as well, including the Response, Ozweego, Supernova, Equipment Ride, and Universal. All had super-clean looks with great adiPRENE cushioning inside.

Look Back Eastbay Catalog Fall Sports '99 Basketball

Basketball

This was back when Jordan Brand was becoming its own entity apart from Nike. Jordan Brand had their own section in Eastbay, leading off the basketball part of the catalog. There was plenty of apparel, and some shoes that might look familiar including the Air Jordan XIV Low, the 3 Percent (MJ’s body fat percentage at the time), the Trunner, and the Quick 6 (for Eddie Jones). Interestingly, that UNC-themed AJ XIV was a sample pair – the pair that released to the public had perforations on the upper instead of the smooth leather. The Nike Basketball pages were full of unique silhouettes, including the debut of the Air Flightposite (dropped 8/18/1999), the Vroomlicious, the Air Tuned Uptempo, and the Air Pippen III. Allen Iverson’s Reebok Questions were still going strong 3 years after they originally dropped, with low-cut versions taking off for the warmer months.

Look Back Eastbay Catalog Fall Sports '99 Tennis

Tennis

Some great tennis models were available, including Andre Agassi’s Air Zoom Beyond (designed by Wilson Smith) and Air Court Motion (designed by Peter Hudson). The Air Zoom Sterling for women also featured visible Zoom Air like the Beyond. The GTS Lo, which stands for “Great Tennis Shoe” as the story goes, was a very popular casual model. I personally owned both the Air Zoom Beyond to play in for matches, and the Air Duration II to practice in.

Look Back Eastbay Catalog Fall Sports '99 Soccer

Soccer

Nike was putting out some incredibly high-quality soccer boots, including the Mercurial R9, which was designed for Brazilian football superstar Ronaldo. There was also a women’s version called the Air Zoom M9, which was made for American women’s star Mia Hamm. Along with the Mercurial and M9, there was also the Air Rio Zoom, which featured a full-length Zoom Air sockliner. adidas was obviously no slouch in the football department, and dropped the Equipment Predator Accelerator for a whopping $164.99. adidas also made the Equipment Maneeta – the first Predator shoe designed for women.

Look Back Eastbay Catalog Fall Sports '99 Training

Sport Training

The Cross Training section was packed with trainers that don’t get enough love, including the Total Air Griffey Max, the Air Max 120, and the Air 90. This was also when the Air Sunder Max was making big waves. Nike trainers in general were getting very bright and colorful, and utilized all sorts of cushioning, from Zoom Air, to Tuned Air, to Air Max.

Look Back Eastbay Catalog Fall Sports '99 Football

Football

Think Eastbay shoppers loved football? This issue had 9 pages dedicated just to the cleats alone. That’s not even counting additional pages featuring plenty more football equipment and jerseys. Stars like Keyshawn Johnson, Peyton Manning, Chris Slade, Howard Griffeth, Antonio Freeman, Doug Flutie, Barry Sanders, John Randle all made cameo appearances on those pages. Cleats like the Air Zoom Apocalypse, Pro Shark Stove, and Reebok Pro Shroud gave players of all ages and levels great options to choose from.

Back to School Bag Guide

Back to School Bag Guide

Part of getting ready for a new school year and new sports season is making sure you have all the gear you need to win in style. And that means a new school bag. With so many different styles and colors to choose from, it can be hard to find the bag that’s right for your sport and for your look. We’re breaking down our top three favorite backpacks, mini backpacks, gymsacks, tote, duffels, crossbody bags, and kids’ bags to help make the decision easier. 

Back To School Bag Guide Backpacks

Backpacks

Obviously, when it comes to school, the most popular type of bag is the classic backpack, but there are so many varieties within this category from basic to decked out. To help you choose, here are our top three favorites as well as a list of some common features that you’ll find on many backpacks so you can identify the technology and know exactly what you’re getting.

Nike Hoops Elite Pro Backpack

While this backpack is designed for basketball players, it’s loaded with a ton of great features that make it the perfect choice for everyone. The bag has a sleek design and a duffel-like opening so you can set it down flat while looking for your workout clothes or textbooks. There’s a laptop sleeve, water bottle storage, and a ventilated pocket to keep sweaty items separate from the rest of your gear. Shop it here.

The North Face Jester Backpack

This do-it-all backpack is built to carry everything you need while keeping you cool and comfortable. It comes with a floating padded laptop sleeve, secondary compartment with zippered areas for pens and pencils, a front elastic bungee for external storage, and two water bottle pockets. It also features compression molded shoulder straps and a padded mesh back panel to ease the strain of carting around school supplies and sport gear. Shop it here.

adidas Originals Utility 4.0 Backpack

If you want the classic functionality of a backpack, but with a more unique look, this is the bag for you. It’s on-trend camo print and cord-lock and hood closure will help you stand out in the halls while keeping all your gear secure. This bag also has two water bottle pockets, an interior laptop sleeve, and ear-bud and charger storage. As an added bonus, this backpack is made from 100% recycled polyester. Shop it here.

Back To School Bag Guide Mini Backpacks

Mini Backpacks

If you want the school aesthetic but a little more stylized, try a mini backpack. These look like regular backpacks, but as the title implies, they’re smaller so you won’t find as many tech features on them and you won’t be able to fit as much inside. So, if you normally carry all your textbooks to and from school, this might not be the best choice for you. But, if you’re focused on style, here are our three favorite mini backpacks for this year.

Nike Brasilia JDI Mini AOP Backpack

With a see-through outer shell and allover print, the Brasilia Mini Backpack packs a big punch for such a small bag. It has two side mesh pockets, water-resistant construction, and two roomy zippered compartments for your essentials. Shop it here.

adidas Originals Santiago Mini Backpack

You can’t deny the appeal of the classic adidas Trefoil. On this mini backpack, it’s front and center, with additional branding across the top. This clean design is the perfect complement to all your school fits, and the webbed shoulder straps and multiple zippered pockets are perfect for comfortably securing all your must-haves. Shop it here.

Nike Just Do It Mini Backpack

This school year, vow to be bold, even down to the smallest details. The Nike Just Do It Mini Backpack is the perfect accessory for carting around your keys, wallet, and other small essentials. Its bold colors and thermoplastic material will pop in the halls or when you’re out with friends, and adjustable shoulder straps and top haul loop make it super easy to grab and go. Shop it here.

Back To School Bag Guide Gymsacks

Gymsacks

Gymsacks are as simple as bags get. They’re super lightweight and easy to throw on, but they rarely have pockets or any other tech. Usually, it’s just a single pull string compartment to put everything in. If you like minimalist style and carry very few items, this could be an option for you. They’re bigger than a mini backpack, so you could probably fit a small laptop or tablet in it, but, because of the simplicity of design and material, you’ll want to make sure you put your electronics in a padded case before putting it in the bag. Here are our three favorites.

Jordan Air Drawstring Gym Sack

You can’t go wrong with the Jumpman. This gymsack is designed to hold an extra pair of clothes and small workout essentials, and it has a side zippered pocket for more secure storage. Shop it here.

adidas Alliance II Sackpack

This gymsack packs a little extra punch, thanks to two side mesh pockets and a front zip pocket to hold your valuables. It comes in a wide variety of colors, and no matter which one you choose, you’ll be rocking the classic athletic Three Stripes. Shop it here.

Nike Brasilia Gymsack

When you want to grab your workout or class essentials and go, simplicity is key. The Nike Brasilia Gymsack has everything you need and nothing you don’t – with three storage areas and a reinforced bottom to protect your gear. It comes in multiple colors to match your personal style. Shop it here.

Back To School Bag Guide Tote Bags

Tote Bags

The most purse-like fashion option is a tote bag. They’re big enough to fit everything you need and feature a few separate sections like a small accessory pocket and laptop sleeve. The biggest difference with this bag is that it’s not quite as hands-free. Since it doesn’t have dual shoulder straps, you can either put it on one shoulder or just carry it in your hand. Here are three great options.

Jordan Flight Essential Adjustable Tote

Legendary Jumpman logo? Check. Removable shoulder strap for multiple carry options? Check. Coated zipper pulls for durability that will last all school year? Check. The Jordan Flight Essential Tote is a triple threat. Shop it here.

adidas All Me Tote

Sport and style go hand in hand with the functional adidas All Me Tote. This bag is made from premium air mesh and has adjustable straps so you can carry it as a crossbody, over your shoulder, or by the handles. Multiple internal pockets let you organize everything just the way you like it. Shop it here.

Nike One Tote

This bag is the one to fit all your needs – from class to practice and everything in between. This versatile tote bag features a large main storage area, water bottle pocket, and elastic bungees for external storage. And it comes in two great neutral colors to complement your school fits and your workout style. Shop it here.

Back To School Bag Guide Duffel Bags

Duffel Bags

A small duffel bag can be a great option for student athletes. Most come with a long strap that you can wear crossbody to keep your hands free. When people picture duffels, they often think of big, bulky bags, but they come in many smaller sizes that can be perfect for athletes who don’t want to carry multiple bags to school. With a duffel, you’ll have enough room to store your school items as well as your gear for practice. Here are our top styles.

Nike One Duffel

Just like the Nike One Tote, this duffel bag combines sporty style and functionality in a way that can’t be beat. A vented compartment is great for storing sweaty clothes after practice, and a zippered shoe compartment and magnetic pockets provide plenty of storage for your school essentials and workout must-haves. Shop it here.

adidas Defender IV Duffel

This durable bag has front and end zippered pockets, dual carry handles with padded grip, and a shoulder strap that you can adjust or remove to meet your needs. The dimensions on this version are 11.75″ H X 20.5″ L X 11″ W, but it also comes in a medium size if you need extra space for practice clothes and shoes. Shop the small duffel here and the medium duffel here.

Nike Brasilia Duffel

With an array of color options and the classic Nike Swoosh, the Brasilia Duffel is a great option for student athletes who need to grab everything and go. It features a dual-zip main compartment, zippered outside pocket for small essentials, and a show compartment to keep everything clean and dry. The dimensions on this bag are 20″ L x 11″ W x 11″ H, but it’s also available in a medium size if you need more space. Shop the small duffel here and the medium duffel here.

Back To School Bag guide Crossbody Bags

Crossbody Bags

If you’re looking for a stylish way to carry your daily essentials, a crossbody bag might be the right choice for you. Small and lightweight, these bags won’t work for all your school supplies or sports gear, but they’re perfect for your keys, wallet, chapstick, phone, and other small items. Here are three picks we love.

Nike Heritage Hip Pack

With a main compartment and smaller accessories pocket, the Nike Heritage Pack will keep everything organized and easy to reach. The strap has a buckle closure, and can be worn around your waist, across your body, or over your shoulder. This comes in a bunch of colors and is the perfect finishing touch to your everyday look. Shop it here.

adidas Originals National Festival Crossbody

With over 100 5-star reviews, this bag can’t be beat. Its unique design features a hook-and-loop fastener so you can attach this to larger bags and backpacks and a customizable strap for when you want to wear it solo. It comes in three colors and features the iconic Trefoil front and center. Shop it here.

Jordan Jumpman AJX Crossbody

Elevate your look to legend status with this synthetic leather crossbody. A zip closure and back pocket for your phone leave plenty of room for all your essentials and an adjustable strap lets you wear it your way. This bag comes in white or red for a vibrant pop that’ll turn heads. Shop it here.

Back To School Bag Guide Kids' Bags

Kids’ Bags

Even the youngest student athletes need great options for carrying their school and sports gear. We’ve got a variety of bags sized just for them and designed to meet their specific needs. Here are three of our favorites along with a tip to make sure you’re carrying your gear safely.

Pro Tip:
If you find yourself hunched over to ease the weight of your bag, consider lightening your load. Kids younger than 13 shouldn’t carry more than 10% of their body weight, while kids 13 and older are okay carrying up to 25% of their body weight.

Nike Young Elemental Backpack

This backpack is the perfect fit for a young student athlete who needs to organize all their gear. It has a removable pencil case for easy access in class. There are also multiple zip pockets to hold school books, gym clothes, calculators, and everything else you might need. Padded shoulder straps keep you comfortable in the halls, on the bus, and back and forth from practice. Shop it here.

Nike CR7 Backpack

For an athletic look that doesn’t sacrifice storage space, go with the Ronaldo-inspired CR7 Backpack. It’s got bold design elements, a large main compartment, and a zippered front pouch for smaller items. The back panel and shoulder straps are padded, so you’ll stay comfortable even when you’re loaded down with homework. Shop it here.

Nike Futura Jumbo Lunch Tote

Who wants a boring brown bag lunch when you can keep your food fresh and cool in an insulated tote from the Swoosh?? It’s the perfect size for lunch and snacks, and its soft shell design means you can easily fold it up and fit it in your backpack when it’s empty. Shop it here.

Back To School Bag Guide Sports Bags

Sport-Specific Bags

If you need a bag built specifically for your sport, we’ve got you covered there, too. We’ve got options with compartments for your basketball or volleyball, baseball bats and helmet, wrestling shoes, and more.

Women's adidas Originals Stan Smith -- White and Green

adidas Originals Stan Smith

True fashion never goes out of style, which is why the Stan Smith sneakers, though originally a favorite of tennis pros in the ’70s, are now a closet staple for everyone. A leather upper and rubber outsole provide durable comfort to last the whole school year.

Men's Nike Cortez -- White, Varsity Royal, and Varsity Red

Nike Cortez

Bill Bowerman’s first masterpiece – the Cortez – is a retro style perfect for your back-to-school look. The upper and outsole were built for traction and durability, while the midsole keeps your feet supported with a lightweight feel.

Men's Jordan Retro AJ1 Mid -- All White

Jordan Retro AJ1 Mid

The first AJ1 dropped in the ’80s with full-grain leather and the “Air Jordan Wings” stamped on the side. Since then, it’s kept the timeless look we love, but updated the rubber outsole with flex grooves to give you the durability and flexibility you need.

Men's Nike Air Force 1 Low -- All White

Nike Air Force 1 Low

The Air Force 1 has been a staple since it debuted as a basketball sneaker in 1982. Over the years, the shoe has stayed on-trend through various colorways and cuts, but one thing that’s remained the same is the iconic court style that’s built for a premium fit and feel.

Men's Nike Air Max 90 -- University Red and White

Nike Air Max 90

The running shoe created by Tinker Hatfield has evolved into one of the most iconic streetwear classics. Updated for modern style, the Air Max 90 is the perfect back-to-school sneaker. A padded ankle collar provides optimal comfort and support while a Max Air unit in the heel absorbs impact and makes you stand out among your classmates.

Men's Nike Air Max 97 -- White, Dynamic Yellow and Evergreen

Nike Air Max 97

The Air Max 97, inspired by earlier models, took the Air Max line to a whole new level. As Nike’s first shoe with a full-length Max Air unit, the 97 keeps your feet cushioned while the layered colors keep your shoe game strong.

Men's Vans Old Skool -- Black and White

Vans Old Skool

Step into the school year with style in this true throwback. Originally designed for skateboarding, the Old Skool quickly turned into a mainstream shoe. Its classic canvas-and-suede upper and the trademark side stripe complete your back-to-school look while giving your feet all-day comfort.

Men's Nike Air Max Plus -- White and Cool Grey

Nike Air Max Plus

If you’re looking for a shoe that’s all about the details, look no further. The Air Max Plus started as an experimental design in 1998 and has since changed the shoe game forever. This sneaker is wrapped with ribs for an edgy look and injected with Air technology for supportive cushioning.

Men's Nike Air Max 270 -- White, University Red and Vast Grey

Nike Air Max 270

The design of the Air Max 270 pays tribute to the original ’91 Air Max 180 with the exaggerated tongue and logo, but still brings a modern vibe with an updated look and elevated comfort. As the first Air Max shoe designed to be worn casually instead of for performance, the Air Max 270 is the perfect choice for an everyday sneaker.

Men's adidas Originals NMD R1 -- Black, Silver, White and Yellow

adidas Originals NMD R1

A breathable, flexible, and stylish shoe perfect for everyday wear, the NMD R1 was born from an inspired past and built for the future.
