FOUR OF THE BEST SNEAKERS FOR 2019
January 19, 2019
With sneaker hype at an all-time high and sneakerheads lining up for the latest drops across the globe, it’s clear that sporty kicks are the future. But it’s the retro-inspired models that everyone’s coveting, and we’re right there with them. So, here are four of our fave sneaker styles to carry you through 2019 and beyond…
PUMA RS-X Toys
We thought PUMA had finessed the chunky sneaker with its Thunder Deserts in 2018, but the RS-X Toys have taken it to a whole new level. Inspired by classic arcade games and '80s toys (Lego, anyone?), they feel nostalgic, but their blocky, triangular shape gives them a futuristic element. Get ready to flex this brand-new red colorway when summer (finally) rolls around.
In what was probably the hottest double drop of 2018, adidas brought back its 1997 classic Falcon Dorf in two updated versions: the Yung-1 and its edgy sister, the Falcon. As if its OG colorways weren’t already cool enough, it’s back for 2019 with a whole new slew of hues and metallic accents.
Who remembers kickin’ it on the playground after athletics in a pair of these? Reebok’s '90s running shoe (created by the designer of the Nike Air Max 97) made a major comeback towards the end of 2018 and it’s sticking around in fresh, spring-appropriate colorways. Pair these minty kicks with light-washed jeans or introduce them to your workout wardrobe for serious gym steez.
adidas Originals Sleek Shoes
It’s fashion gospel that a pair of clean white sneakers can make any outfit look fresh and new (talk about a wardrobe staple). These newbies from adidas Originals are a sort of Stan Smith/Continental hybrid, meaning they’ve got an uber-classic vibe while the touch of neon on the sole keeps them current. If you’re looking for a pair of white sneaks to match everything in your wardrobe, literally, we recommend these babies.
