Not only did HYPEFEST bring together creatives ranging from Futura and Andre to A$AP Nast and Sheck Wes, but it also gathered thousands of like-minded sneakerheads, eager to showcase their grails and favorite silhouettes. Guests came through wearing classic Nike SB styles, runway-ready footwear and plenty of comfy runners.
Along with bespoke Off-White™ x Nike Air Prestos, Virgil Abloh‘s revamped footwear surfaced in droves, with each of the designer’s revamped Air Jordan 1 models coming out in force. Of course, plenty of Nike’s own iconic designs were on hand, including the classic Jordan 1 “Bred,” Mars Yards, a host of elevated Air Force 1s and a selection of collaborative shoes, including joint efforts with COMME des GARÇONS and UNKLE. Other key brands included adidas, which was represented by BAPE ULTRABOOSTS and new “Never Made” offerings. Elsewhere, high fashion labels were represented by backless Gucci loafers and Balenciaga’s new TRACK sneaker.
