    The iconic Steve Madden '90s slide is being revived by the shoe company.

    From high-waisted mom jeans to crop tops and chokers, fashion trends from the '90s are back with a vengeance.   

    The only thing that has been missing to complete that back-to-school look every girl in class had was the iconic Steve Madden Slinky — until now.

    The New York-based footwear company has revived the popular platform slide. The 2017 version has been slightly altered with a flatter heel and added elastic in the "stretchy upper" for more flexibility, according to the Steve Madden website. 

    The Slinky isn't on store shelves just yet, but they are available for pre-order on Steve Madden's website. The $69.99 shoes are expected to ship in July.

    News of the retro shoe's return brought back nostalgic memories for the Slinky-wearing girl who head bopped to alternative rock and cited Cher quotes from "Clueless" while eating candy necklaces.

    And despite the fact the shoes' insoles continuously slapped the bottom of your heels, announcing your arrival with loud clapping-like noises, Slinky girls can't wait to get their hands on a pair and stomp around town.
