The holidays have passed and everybody is settling into 2013. Well, that is if you’re not a sneakerhead. If you are a sneakerhead, you’ve been ready since this past Saturday when a pair of highly anticipated releases made their way to retailers in the form of the Air Jordan 1 Retro in an OG colorway and a new New York Knicks-inspired look. Ain’t no rest for the wicked, as they say; you could say the same about sneakerheads.
And the hits will keep on coming in 2013 as the sneaker community grows and the business of kicks becomes more lucrative for the ones that actually make them. So here are 13 (get it?) things that you can look forward to in the new year.
