Complex.com’s Top 100 Sneakers of the 2000′s
Lists are very much like the Air Jordan Spiz’ike Complex ranked as the 47th best sneaker of the last decade. In their own words, “Some make you look like a douche, some are great.” Getting sneakerheads to agree on a top 100 list is essentially impossible. You’re going to read through (part of) this list and get angry that your favourite sneakers are missing or think some should be higher or lower, but this list is undeniably interesting.
And they do several things really well. Even if you liked different co-stars, they did a good job of noting how important collaborative sneaker designs were to the last ten. We see plenty from the early days of Nike SB and the early wave of modern sneakerhead history. They even had the good sense to include your author’s favorite, the perforated suede DQM-designed three pack of Nike Dunk Highs from last year, albeit all the way down at 29. Take a look at a few of them after the jump, read the list and come back to complain/discuss.
