Brought to you by HYPEBEAST RadioThe HYPE Report is a weekly show that analyzes key cultural moments from the past week, with topics including fashion, footwear, music, tech, arts, gaming and more. Our host, Mikey Dabb, talks shop with HYPEBEAST editors across the globe to dissect these stories.

To end the year, Mikey sits down with Senior Editor Robert Marshall and Footwear Editor Ross Dwyer to discuss the best sneakers of 2019 as well as the most important sneakers of the decade. A year of collaborations between musicians, athletes, luxury brands and much more, there was no corner of pop-culture that footwear did not infiltrate. Our editors dive into topics such as why sacai’s Nike collaboration was the perfect mesh of two silhouette, and why CPFM’s VaporMax might be the sneaker of the year.

Without a doubt streetwear’s impenetrable force in the past decade has led to the rise of athleisure, sneaker apps, resell sites and influencers. This would not be possible without some sneakers that changed the course of the past decade, from the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 to fragment design’s Air Jordan 1. So tune in above to hear their picks and recap of the decade.
