You can count on a few things in the sneaker world to happen like clockwork. You can be sure that someone will get mad over something so stupid and harmless that every blog (including ours) will have to write a think piece about how stupid it is and start the cycle all over again. You can rest assured that Matt Powell will say sneakerheads don’t matter outside of their own echo chamber to tick off said sneakerheads and we’ll have to post a think piece looking for the middle ground. And you can bet that Kanye West will be featured on every site for something as innocent as complimenting another brand’s shoes and we’ll have to put up a think piece about why nobody should care what he thinks about Jordan Futures.
But you can also bet that we’ll be paying attention to release dates and launch procedures at least several times a year for a few drops that are as predictable as well, clockwork. For several years now, we have gotten used to a number of high-profile sneakers dropping around the same time each year. They can be tied to a particular event, holiday or season and people still act like it’s first time this has happened, especially when they don’t get what they want. They are predictably rote at this point, but you’ll want them anyways along with all the new stuff. Here are 10 Predictably Hyped Sneakers Dropping In 2015.
