2017 is almost over and to say that it has been a colorful year in the world of shoes is totally an understatement. With the trends coming and going in a snap, today's fashion and trend climate swoops by fast just like a coffee-fueled Santa Claus on a sleigh!
1. Nike x Off White Jordan 1
No doubt the most coveted sneakers, this one is a part of "The Ten" collection. With Virgil Abloh, the hottest designer on everyone's radar, there's no doubt this innovative inside out and deconstructed look has taken the sneaker world by storm.
2. Saint Laurent Crystal Niki Boots
If Off White J1 is to sneakerhead, the crystal Niki boots is for the femme fashionistas. The crystals are so captivating to the eyes, it's out of this world style at its finest.
3. Pharrell x Chanel x adidas Hu NMD
Exclusive and a chore to get, Pharrell Williams' latest collab is crazy as it blurs the lines between street and lux. It’s the rarity and absurdity on how the resell price has gone up the roof and beyond.
4. Vans Era 95 DX x Fear Of God
Our pick among the three when they dropped here. We can say its wearable heat. We can see them worn comfortably anywhere, whether it be in the Manila weather or snowy New York. Props to Jerry Lorenzo for this masterpiece.
5. Balenciage Triple S / adidas YEEZY Wave Runner / Vetements Genetically Modified Reebok Pump High
More chunk for the spunk! Chunky shoes are definitely changing the Stan Smith / Common Project trends with fatter and more crazy shapes and orientations.
6. adidas YEEZY Boost 350 Yeezy Beluga 2.0/Frozen Yellow/Blue Tint
Whether you are a crazy completist or you just need to experience the hype of it all, the Yeezys remain king of the sneaker empire.
7. Nike Dunk SB Dunk Black Pigeon SB
Long awaited by fans and coming left field in a blacked out colorway, Jeff Staple dominates once again and defies expectations. Aesthetics never fail with a good story to tell.
8. Louis Vuitton x Supreme Runaway Sneaker
Underrated, part skate and classy. This show brings the luxe in sneakers without damaging street cred, only the wallet.
9. Balenciaga Speed Trainer/Vetements x Reebok Sock Trainer
Are we wearing boots or socks? Either way it brings ultra comfort in boots and “sleek” in trainers.
10. Saucony Originals Shadow 5000 X The Good Will Out VHS
The total tribute to the 90's. Inspired by the legendary VHS player, this collab with The Good Will Out knocks it out of the park. From the static soles to the color bar panel, down to the packaging... this one is epic.
And that's it! Got your Top Ten in mind? Do share with us today! One pair that we are drooling on are definitely the Eminem X Jordan 4 Reissues for 2018! Peep it here!
