If so, let us know in the comments below.
1adidas Originals Stan Smith Primeknit Vapor Green
If you want the perfect mixture of classic aethetics and modern technology, the adidas Originals Stan Smith Primeknit is the sneaker you should be looking at. The Stan Smith is done in Primeknit fashion, making it more suitable for the current times. There’s more colors to choose from, but the Vapor Green pair is the one that caught my eye the most.
2Nike Cortez Ultra Moire Forrest Gump
Just like the revamped Stan Smith we just went over, this modern version of the Cortez gives the classic running sneakers a brand new modern look and feel. This Ultra Moire version comes with added perforation on the upper as well as a new sole that provides more comfort and cushioning. I don’t mess with the OG Cortez, but I’m down to try on a pair of these, especially in this Cortez colorway.
3Converse Chuck Taylor 2 Ox Futura Skyfall
I know I’m a bit late, but I finally tried on a pair of the Chuck Taylor 2s. I must say, they’re way better than the original version. Seeing the revamped model covered in a cool Futura Skyfall print gives the shoe a different look that I’m really liking. Great to see a sequel that actually meets expectations.
4MLB x Vans Collection
A Vans Authentic covered in the logo of some of your favorite MLB teams. What’s not to love? Baseball season is in full-effect, there’s no better time to root for the home time by picking up this sweet pair of kicks from the MLB x Vans collection.
Price: $65 (They also come in Sk8-Hi for $75)
5Saucony Grid 9000 Microdot Light Tan / Blue
The Saucony Grid 9000 Microdot kind of has that split-colored look to them, which is always a good look on a pair of sneakers. The Microdot hits on the toe and heel give the shoe a unique feel to them. Plus, the colors used on the shoe are perfect for the Summer. I’m really diggin’ this shoe!
6Nike Air Presto Black / Red
More and more Prestos are beginning to release this Summer and I don’t think anybody is complaining. This next pair rocks the timeless Black and Red colorway with just a bit of Yellow on the branding to give it some pop. You really can’t go wrong with this pair. Price: $120
7Puma Blaze Of Glory Americana
Arguably the best USA themed sneakers of the year. The mismatched look on the Puma Blaze of Glory is done perfectly. With the Olympics right around the corner, this is the perfect sneakers to wear while team USA is going for the gold!
Price: $130 (It’s not under $120, but it was too dope to leave off the list)
8adidas Originals Superstar Gum Shell Toe
We’re used to seeing gum construction on the soles of shoes, but adidas thought it was a good idea to extend the gum accents all the way to the shell toe of the shoe. I was hesitant at first, but the more I see it, the more I see myself picking up a pair.
9Nike Air Max Thea Premium Print Pack
The Nike Premium Print Pack is a set of women’s releases consisting of the Nike Roshe Run and the Nike Air Max Thea you see above. The Air Max Thea comes in a breathable Jacquard upper accompanied by the leather overlays all while sitting on a lightweight Air Max sole. The camo-like print is placed on the Jacquard construction placed on the toe, collar and tongue. It’s a nice print with a subtle look to it.
Price: $115 ( The Roshe Run from this pack will cost you $85)
10Vans Kyle Walker Pro
Kyle Walker is the latest skater to get his own signature Vans sneaker. The most notable featurs on the shoe include the WAFFLECUP technology that provides the support and stability of a cupsole and the boardfeel and grip of a vulc model. The shoe also comes with the ULTRACUSH HD impact sockliners and DURACAP rubber underlays. Aside from all of that, it’s a good looking shoe a well!
