Vince Suede High Top Sneakers

G Dlp X New Balance 327 Sabar

Vince Camuto Barita Suede SlipOn Studded Sneaker

As a Brazilian sneakerhead, its always a joy to share projects that elevate the local identity. In recent years, the number of collaborations involving stores and national brands has grown a lot, and my choice is a result of this evolution. The 327Sabara was developed in partnership with the sneaker destination G DLP Store, presenting a visual identity that elevates the typical Brazilian fruit Jabuticaba. The shoe was part of G DLP 10th anniversary celebrations and the result is far from the common projects aimed at Brazil that are limited to showing the green, yellow and blue of the national flag.

Nike Air Max Bw Cream

Nicholas Llanton/Hypebeast

If you think of sneakers with close ties to London, Air Maxes are some the top trainers that come to mind, specifically the Air Max BW a staple of the U.K.s underground club scene. Earlier this year, a Euro-exclusive Cream colorway of the BW surfaced and I knew I had to have them. I live in New York, but luckily for me, I was in London at the time, saw them sitting on the shelves at Patta and felt obligated to cop such a special souvenir. This is the very first BW in my collection, and one of my favorite details on the BW is how its Swoosh is like a puzzle piece that becomes one with the rubber molding as it wraps around the entire sneaker. And of course, I cant forget the Big Window . That shiny air unit really shows the shoes comfort, especially when walking through the streets of NYC. I hope Nike continues to push out more colorways of the BW in 2022. I feel like this model doesnt get the same love as its siblings like the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, or Air Max 95! Nicholas Llanton

Hello Kitty X Nike Air Presto

Ambrose Leung/Hypebeast

I probably wont be wearing this pair too much but it is one of those releases that I had to get as we dont really see too many anime crossovers with Nike. I also have a soft spot for the Presto as I remember as a kid the marketing push for these was pretty strong when they first came out. My best friend at the time got a pair on release and everyone thought he was so cool as the neoprene upper was just different at the time. Now, tie that in with the history of the first Hello Kitty x Nike Air Presto from 2004 which was for friends and family with colorways from both Steven Smith and Hiroshi Fujiwara, and you can understand why I had to add them to the collection. Another thing I like about this release is that If you didnt hear about the collaboration being official, youd probably think it was a bootleg. Ambrose Leung

Acronym X Nike Blazer Low Black

Logan Fairbrother/Hypebeast

Personally, Errolson Hughs contributions to Nike have always been exciting. Between his time with NikeLab ACG and collaborations with the Swoosh via his label ACRONYM, Hugh has continued to explore futuristic themes that have continuously prompted me to ponder whats next. So when the ACRONYM x Nike Blazer Low popped up, it was the heel clip system that immediately grabbed my attention. Having the option to customize my pair with the provided clip units felt like a glimpse into the future of fashion. However, once the ACRONYM Dynamics Lab by solebox introduced DLC for the shoe with ten 3D printable heel clips, my excitement hit an even higher level. While theres certainly room to refine these ideas, Im hopeful that modular design has a bright future in streetwear. Logan Fairbrother

Salehe Bembury X Crocs Pollex Clog Stratus

Lyst

Elliot Santiago/Hypebeast

Ill be first to admit that clogs and mules never really piqued my interest until the pandemic infiltrated our lives. However, as COVID ran its course, I definitely started to gravitate towards footwear offerings that were easy to slip on and off, versatile and provided ample comfort, and thats exactly what these Salehe Bembury x Crocs Pollex Clogs supply. Given that few folks were able to pick up the designers inaugural colorways back in December, the hype was through the roof for this release and I was fortunate enough to pick up the Stratus pair for retail which which as any sneakerhead can relate probably relate to nowadays is an extremely sweet feeling. The exaggerated concaves throughout the upper give the silhouette a refreshing, obscure and fashion-forward look all at the same time, and the fact that these are essentially done up in all-white, they pretty much compliment any outfit in my closet.

Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Static

Felix Young/Hypebeast

The original 700 V2 Static is my favourite YEEZY of all time . I couldnt tell you the number of days Ive worn my 2018 pair, but Id guess theyd be my single most-worn piece of footwear ever. I literally wore the outsole down into the midsole, and, although I had a back-up pair before this years restock, I never knew the right time to retire my OGs. That is now done. RIP. Felix Young

Air Jordan 3 Neapolitan

Bait

As a female in the sneaker space, I tend to reject the shrink it and pink it approach to female exclusives. When I first saw images of the Air Jordan 3 Neapolitan, I knew this pair would be an exception. It wasnt even the sneakers dusty pink shade I was initially drawn to . It was the colors thoughtful contrast with the brown elephant print that caught my eye. I should also admit that the ice cream-inspired color scheme and the shoes nickname Neapolitan triggered a bit of nostalgia for me as somebody whose first job was scooping ice cream at a local shop.

Nike Sb Dunk Low Phillies

Justin Goldberg/Hypebeast

There are a number of native Philadelphians in the HYPEBEAST office, and as anyone from the City of Brotherly Love can attest, we wear our heart and our cheesesteaks on our sleeves . When I saw that Nike was releasing the Nike SB Dunk Low Phillies to skate shops, I realized this was the pair for me. Combining my love for kicks with MY city and doing it with a tip of the cap to the powder blue Phillies road uniforms from the 80s there wasnt a more perfect sneaker out there. So when my New York Mets-loving wife presented these to me for Fathers Day, well, my Philly pride went into overdrive.

Arriving in the usual purple SB box, the attention to detail is astounding. The nubuck toe boxes give way to premium suede overlays in gorgeous powder blue. The vinyl, record-player feel of the maroon Nike swoosh throws back to the nostalgia of 70s and 80s games at Veterans Stadium. But the real winner here is the detail behind each tongue. The left tongue displays a Philly cheesesteak oozing with whiz, leaving me longing for a trip to Pats on Passyunk Avenue. The right side displays the quintessential Philly landmark, the Liberty Bell. After a lace swap for contrast , I was ready to rock these to the World Series 2022. Go Phils! Justin Goldberg

Jjjjound X New Balance 990v3 Brown/black

Vince Camuto Leather or Suede Ankle Boots – Amvita on QVC

Jjjjound

JJJJound and New Balance have an impressive shared history in recent years. After 2018s understated take on the 990v3, 2020s green and gray 992s and last years technical-inspired 990v4, the duo returned this year with another 990v3. The beauty of the 2022 collaboration lies in its colorway which mixes light green with earthy brown overlays. The final detailing comes in black, giving extra depth to the simple design. Across all of JJJJounds collaborative releases, the key theme has been their wearability theres nothing showy, unwanted or distracting this 990 is the same, and its green and brown colorway can be worn with anything.

Patta X Clints Steppers

Clints

Manchester-born label Clints has had a rapid rise over the past year or so. The brand produces limited-run pieces that often sell out instantly to its cult-like following and the Stepper itself silhouette heavily nods to nostalgic days of skate culture in the late 90s. But with the impressive designs and marketing tactics from Clints alone, the Patta cosign appeared to push not only Clints to the next level, but it also brought a fresh heap of eyes onto other independent, Black-owned businesses throughout the rainy city and beyond. Throughout the design, however, its Brown/Teal/Green Black color scheme overlays the suede panels along with Pattas insignia sitting comfortably next to the customary Clints branding on the lateral mid-panel.- Jack Lynch

Air Jordan 4 Military Black

Ycmc

Artist, engineer, musician, mathematician Leonardo da Vinci was a man of many trades. Amongst his teachings, the Renaissance man once professed that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Though rooted in the past, those words can easily apply to the Air Jordan 4 Military Black. A subtle refresh to the Military Blue colorway from 1989, the Tinker Hatfield-designed silhouette comes in a year of highly anticipated retros. This Jordan release, however, may easily go down as sneaker of the year. Just looking at the shoe makes you think less. The best designs have that effect. Starting with the accents, the light blue of the OG iteration is replaced with a sleek black that is seen in the eyelets, outsole, underlay and heel counter the latter of which prominently replaces the Nike Air branding with a large Jumpman logo. Additional highlights include a supple tumbled white leather throughout the upper, light gray in the wings and suede midsole, along with white rubber netting to complete the look. Dress it up, dress it down the AJ4 Military Black is fit for any occasion. Shawn Ghassemitari
