If you’re looking for a sneaker that oozes with quality materials, you really can’t go wrong with picking up either of these for only $75!

2WMNS Nike Air Force 1 Suede/Gum


Don’t think I forgot about you, ladies. This list will have a couple of exclusive choices for you too. Starting with this dope version of the Nike Air Force 1 Low. Coming in a dark purple suede upper, the premium look gets even more of a classic feel by pairing it up with the all-gum sole unit. I have a good feeling some guys are going to Google these shoes and see if they can find a size for their own. Priced at $95, shoot I may just go and see if I can find a women’s 11.5 for myself.

3adidas Originals Stan Smith Powder Red

Sneaker Politics

Yet another premium suede offering, this sneaker comes in the form of an adidas Original Stan Smith. If you’re looking for a sneaker that helps get you in the holiday spirit, you really can’t go wrong with an all-red Stan Smith. Priced at only $85, you’re going to have more than enough money left over to buy your mom something nice for the holidays. After all, she deserves it!

4Fila Cage From The Precedent Pack


Fila gives their classic 90’s basketball silhouette a premium look that you can wear off the court without thinking twice about it. The Fila Cage comes in a navy blue suede offering with hits of leather that further enhances the aesthetics of the shoe. Available now for $90, this should be a no-brainer for Fila fanatics.

5Air Jordan 1 Mid Black/Grey

Sneaker Politics

For all you Jordan heads out there that don’t feel like dropping $190 on a retro, take a look at this (almost) all-black version of the Air Jordan 1 Mid. Considered to be the “less popular” Air Jordan 1 model, I still think it’s a pretty solid offering that comes in a tonal black leather upper paired up with the hits of grey found in the lining, Jumpman and outsole. Priced at only $110, that’s not a bad deal at all!

6Native Apollo Moc Paint Chip

Native Shoes

One look at the Native Apollo Moc and it’s easy to see that the aesthetics and construction of the silhouette are very minimal. That’s not a bad thing though, as a matter of fact, that’s what makes the Native Apollo Moc appealing! Light, comfortable, modern, refreshing and eco-friendly! What’s not to love? If you feel like trying something new, dropping $90 on a pair of the Apollo Moc may not be a bad place to start.

7WMNS Nike Cortez Leather Team Red/Gold


I’m not a fan of the Nike Cortez, but when I saw it dressed in a Team Red leather upper contrasted by the gold Nike Swoosh, it immediately caught my attention. Labeled as a women’s colorway, I’m sure a lot of guys will shrug that off and still want a pair. Very dope color scheme on the Nike Cortez. Retailing at $100, that’s a pretty solid deal if I say so myself.

8Radii Phuket Runner Mono Pack


Southern California based, Radii gives their retro inspired Phuket Runner a crisp and clean tonal look. The upper is done in a beautiful tonal pigskin suede that’s paired up with mesh to provide a classic yet modern aesthetic. The shoe also utilizes their Cloud 9 midsole, which means you’re going to be feeling stylish and comfortable at the same time. If you’re looking for a cozy runner, the Raddi Phuket Runner can be had for $85

9Asics Gel Lyte 5 Triple Black


Asics is represented on the list on behalf of the classic Asics Gel Lyte 5. You really can’t go wrong with this classic Asics runner. Coming in an all-black upper, the shoe is composed of suede, leather, and neoprene. If you’re looking for something simple that you wouldn’t mind wearing multiple times during the week, this all-black Asics Gel Lyte 5 can be yours for $120

10adidas Originals Tubular Runner Black/Onix

Sneaker Politics

I tend to stay away from the adidas Originals Tubular Runner, but something about this one that drew me in. The colorway and materials used on this Tubular Runner are a thing of beauty. Everything seems to work very well together, and it does so very effortlessly. If you’re about that adidas Originals Tubular Runner life, you need to pick up this colorway that’s priced at $110.
