We’re already at the halfway mark of the year and it’s apparent that the first few months of 2019 has already seen some grail-worthy sneaker releases. From the usual brand collaborations down to the unsuspecting general release drops, there’s much to be said about how competitive footwear brands have become in terms of releasing the most covetable designs today. We’ve witnessed Nike
partner up with more up-and-coming fashion brands and adidas
co-signing some major music talents to one-up their rivals on the collab front. However, it seems like whatever other sneaker brands try to pull off, they always seem to be playing catch up to The Swoosh.
HYPEBEAST editors collectively got together to pick some of what they think are the best kicks of 2019 so far, and it’s clear cut that Nike designs lead the pack. With the help of Stadium Goods
, we were able to narrow down some of this year’s most hyped sneakers and our tastes vary from the more ostentatious creations to the lowkey, simple-yet-effective styles. Check our picks below to see if some of your favorites made the list.
