It’s crazy to think that a single shoe like the Air Jordan IV White/Cement caused nationwide campouts and ‘maintenance’ for online sneaker stores, but that certainly wasn’t the case for all the popular and coveted sneaker releases of the last decade. Shoes listed in this week’s Best of WDYWT are certainly more prized, like the rare Parra x Air Max 1 Hyperstrike, the Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’, and even older gems like the Nike Son Of Glove, but with the sneaker community growing by the day, these sneakers have become more and more priceless as they begin to age. Nobody knows what the sneaker horizon will be like in the next few years, but just know that the twenty listed here are certified gems. Check out this week’s Top 20 from Sneaker News Blogs: WDYWT and vote for your favorite of the bunch.
Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘All-Star’ – Jon Hundreds – Los Angeles, CA
SBTG x Nike Dunk Low ‘UNKLE’ Customs – Tydro – Calgary, Canada
Nike Son of Glove – Flores – Dallas, TX
Air Jordan XV ‘Flint’ – Jose – Springfield, MA
Nike SB Dunk High ‘Marge’ – Tony Diamonds, CA
The shoegamecrazy thunder 4s look fake. They look like they have suede wings instead of plastic. Just saying. Maybe its the angle of the camera plus lighting that throwing it off..
As aforementioned on my post: I don't do fakes buddy. Just bad camera work I guess. I'll do better the next time
its good to see someone from the dmv wearing actual heat...there are way too many hypebeasts out here.
No they are not. There were 24 pairs with the Parra logo on them and a handful of sample pairs without them. What you're looking at is an even rarer version of what is already an incredibly rare hyperstrike release. They're definitely getting my vote this week.
Back to back weeks in top 20 for me but Dantet AKA Parts Guy, you got my vote man! Galaxy Lebrons are sick, waiting on my pair now!
