Twenty-Five, Twenty-One is a coming-of-age romantic drama that follows Baek Yi-jin (Nam Joo Hyuk) and Na Hee-do (Kim Tae Ri) as they meet at the age of 22 and 18 back in 1998. The two young individuals navigate the aftermath of Korea's major financial crisis in the late '90s, fall in love, and meet again three years later at the age of 25 and 21.
In the series, Kim Tae Ri plays Hee-do, who is an aspiring fencing athlete, so you'll expect a slew of sporty outfits you'll actually want to wear today. Case in point: Her character has quite a collection of chunky sneakers! Check out the exact pairs that we spotted in the K-drama so far.

We're low-key squealing when we spotted this late-1990s Nike sneaker! The Nike Air Max 97 best known for its "futuristic" design during its first release. It's inspired by Japan's bullet trains, as seen on its reflective fluid lines and silver hue. This shoe is also Nike's early foray into full-length "Max Air" cushioning.

Hee-do surely does have serious taste when it comes to her footwear. This classic Reebok shoe is a do-anything pair that can fit seamlessly into anyone's wardrobe. It's one that will make your morning shoe decisions super easy, what with its breathable mesh upper, lightweight TPU midsole, and DMX foam inside that will let the user walk miles in cushioned comfort. Style-wise, the synthetic overlays in sinuous lines create a fluid design that makes the shoe look unique and calls back to its retro design inspo.
