Wrapping up another year of providing sneaker-enthusiasts a marketplace to buy and sell footwear of varying rarities, the GOAT app takes a retrospective look into its 2018. HYPEBEAST has been able to create a list of the people’s choice of the most sought-after footwear. Kanye’s eponymously named adidas silhouettes made their way on top; however, it seems the 350 was on the mind of enthusiasts more than others. Though its presence wasn’t dominant, Nike and Jordan Brand weren’t left out either. So, without further ado, here are the top kicks on GOAT.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Cream White / Triple White”

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the
Release Date: April 29, 2018
Lowest Price: $180 USD

Originally released under the name “Cream White,” the second coming of this colorway sees a slight rebranding while still sustaining its herald attributes. BOOST technology appears in the sole for added comfort with each stride, and a tonal dressing of white creates a pristine appearance.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Blue Tint”

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the
Release Date: December 16, 2017
Lowest Price: $205 USD

Over a year of teasing cultivated a great deal of fanfare for the “Blue Tint” iteration of the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2. Sporting a spiraling pattern of tonal greys on the knit, an icy accent of blue runs across the trim and lightly tints the upper and midsole. “High Res Red” adds the final aesthetic details on the heel tab and trademark reverse “SPLY-350” text on the lateral.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Zebra”

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the
Release Date: February 25, 2017
Lowest Price: $165 USD

Reminiscent of the animal it shares its name with, adidas brings zebra patterning to the knit upper of the sneaker. A dominant palette of black and white splays across the entirety of the shoe, while a bold accent of red, implemented into the reverse “SPLY-350” text on the lateral, interrupts the aforementioned hues. Technical attributes synonymous with the footwear, such as the BOOST technology, complete the offering.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Beluga 2.0”

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the

Release Date: November 25, 2017
Lowest Price: $220 USD

Touted as a successor to the noteworthy “Beluga,” the latest iteration utilizes the stylistic cues from its predecessor and incorporates distinct new details onto the upper. A full-length BOOST unit is incaged in the ribbed, translucent grey sole while the aforementioned hues intertwine across the knit in complementing tonal colors. A bold accent of orange serves as an embellishment amongst the dark tones, which can be witnessed on the pull tab and reverse “SPLY-350” text.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 700 “Wave Runner”

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the
Release Date: November 01, 2017
Lowest Price: $260 USD

The “OG” was the first colorway to appear from the line of the YEEZY BOOST 700 silhouettes. Following ensuite of the pervasive “dad” shoe trends, Kanye pushed the stylistic attributes of the sneaker with eccentric, chunky details. A bold color palette consisting of orange, white, black, grey, green and blue are implemented on a mix of materials.

adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Butter”

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the
Release Date: June 30, 2018
Lowest Price: $180 USD

What was a highly-talked about iteration from the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 series, the “Butter” colorway provided the inaugural platform for the sneaker to premiere its reversed Primeknit upper. Tonally, the sneaker has been swathed in a faint yellow hue all the way down to its ripped, translucent sole. An appearance of gum rubber accents its footbed to round together the drop.

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Bred Toe”

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the
Release Date: February  24, 2018
Lowest Price: $215 USD

The “Bred Toe” breathes an essence of familiarity while still holding its own distinct characteristics. A blending of two iconic colorways, the “Bred” and “Black Toe,” creates somewhat of a Frankenstein creation that sustains attributes synonymous with the AJ1 through a novel lens. Sitting atop a court-ready rubber outsole, the upper features grail leather that trades black, red and white across the sneaker’s entirety.

adidas YEEZY 500 “Blush”

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the
Release Date: March 4, 2018
Lowest Price: $175 USD

Touted as a premium offering, the YEEZY 500 “Blush” executed idiosyncratic design details into a low-top sneaker. A melange of fabrics, including suede and mesh, were used to construct an upper with distinct features that hold a dressing of tan and grey. The chunky silhouette sits atop an Adiprene sole with a grid-like pattern for elevated traction.

Air Jordan 11 Retro “Win Like ‘96”

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the
Release Date: December 09, 2017
Lowest Price: $85 USD

The ’90s solidified the Chicago Bulls iconism within the annals of the NBA, most importantly, its record-breaking ‘96 season. Paying reverence to the magnitude of the team and a silhouette with a great deal of legacy, Jordan Brand gave the AJ11 a vibrant dressing of “Bulls Red” — witnessed on the patent leather, mesh and laces. White hues support the dominant tones on the midsole and are complemented by a cool, icy blue outsole. Pulling together the footwear, branding ubiquitous with the model underscores the kicks in a black coloring.

Sean Wotherspoon x Air Max 1/97

GOAT's Top 10 Sneakers From the
Release Date: March 26, 2018
Lowest Price: $450 USD

Sean Wotherspoon’s 2018 can be marked by a slew of junctures that put him on the precipice culture; starting it all was his contest-winning sneaker with Nike. Known for his eccentric presence and love all things vintage, Wotherspoon’s personality shines through the sneaker’s nuanced construction and design details. The Air Max  1 and 97 are fused together to create a unique silhouette that uses a bevy of bold tones on the outsole and layered, frayed corduroy on the upper to give off a timeworn essence. Playful embroidery on the tongue, heel tab and the double checks on the lateral create a natural complement to the shoe’s other characteristics and round-up the iteration.
