2015 was one of the best years the sneaker business has seen. The amount of diversity available to sneaker enthusiasts was incredible. Whether you wanted super hyped Public School Jordans or Kanye’s adidas, or some of the incredible GR colorways and collabs that came from brands like PUMA, New Balance and Vans, the options were plentiful.
Before getting into my list, there are a few honorable mentions that need addressed. The Murakami x Vans are likely the only chance most people will ever have at owning the famed artist’s work and the collab turned out incredible. The Reebok ZPump may have been over branded but the shoe is incredibly comfortable and it was nice to see Reebok find some success outside of the CrossFit world again. And of course, the 20 years of eS Skateboarding saw the release of the Sal Barbier retro.
Since nobody is paying me to create this list, it probably won’t look like all your other favorite bloggers out there. But it will, however, look pretty diverse — like my sneaker collection. Check out my My Top 10 Sneakers of 2015.
