Vanity Fair calls the Puma Creeper the must-have shoe of the year and we don’t disagree!

They sold out in a single second and they were designed by Saint Pablo himself. Do we need to say anymore? Didn’t think so.

Nike Air Mags

Debatably the most memorable sneaks of the year, the Nike Air Mags were one of the firsts on our list. A Back to the Future dream come true, these self-lacing shoes were inspired by those worn by Marty Mcfly in the movie that set a high expectation for Nike in 1985.

Another great sneaker by Adidas that can’t keep up with its high demand. Not only is the sneaker one of our favorites to be released this year, its wearability and comfort has allowed it to flow into mainstream sneaker culture.

The colorway well-suited its release date (near Halloween) and altered the scheme of the original Shattered Backboard Jordans.

Air Jordan 11 Space Jam
Re-released to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam, these Jordans were featured in the movie and worn on the court by Michael Jordan himself. The sneakers were specially packaged in a Looney Tunes and Bugs Bunny themed box.

The collaboration was released at the beginning of the year and, well, we’re not over it.

We are loving all knitted sneakers right now, especially the Y-3 Pure Boost ZG Knit. Again, you’re seeing Adidas boost technology because it’s been huge this year.

Nike Kobe 11 FTB “Black Mamba”
Meet the last pair of sneakers Kobe wore to play basketball in the NBA–the pair of sneakers that he dropped 60 points in and finished his time in the NBA. Sold out before the game began, fans knew they were destined for excellence.
