I think we can all admit that 2020 sucked. One of the only upsides was the sneaker releases. This is a list of my top 10 releases of the year. This is not a list of the shoes that I think were the best releases but of the 10 that dominated the headlines. These are the pairs that popped into my head when I think of 2020. Sad to say this but 2020 was controlled by Nike. I don't have a pair from any other brand. The eleventh best shoe release of 2020 would probably be the Yeezy foam runner but other than that I couldn't think of any other brands that released anything worth writing about. O well.
10. CHunky dunk
Ugly but people seem to like them.
9. Stussy Spiridon
Most underrated of the year.
8. off-white jordan 5's
Virgil does the bare minimum again and succeeds.
7. Grateful Dead dunks
No one that wears these have ever dropped acid at a Dead show but it's whatever.
6. union jordan 4's
Everyone hated them at first but now what?
5. Travis Scott dunk
Not a Travis style fan but the materials were nice.
4. strangelove nike dunk
I like these.... I guess.
3. Off- White Jordan 4
Best Off White release... Jordan wise.
2. Dior Jordan 1
Can you imagine spending 10k on these when they dropped? Must be nice being part of the 1%. If you ever think about buying these, let me know and I'll tell you about some stocks instead.
1. mocha jordan 1
Hear me out. The Mocha 1 is a general release and was not the most expensive shoe but is definitely our most requested pair. Easily affordable so it won't break the bank yet it will probably go up in value do to its wearability. All the other shoes on this list because of their contemporary approach but you're not going to be able to wear a pair of Chunky Dunks all the time. The Mochas may become timeless.
