Last week’s Sneaker News Blogs: Best of WDYWT was dominated by submissions of OG kicks by our readers. Ewings, OG Military IVs, Tim Hardaway’s Zoom T-Bug – it was certainly one of the more nostalgic collection of Best of WDYWT ever, so can this week’s Best of WDYWT compete? Once again, we’ve got a great mix of stuff, like the Blake Griffin ‘Galaxy’ Hyperdunks, a pair of Air Force 1s from 1998, some light-up Foamposite Customs, and possibly the crispest pair of OG Air Jordan XIs we’ve ever seen. Move on to the twenty best below, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite!

Man ... They way they rockin those SB 9's are makin me hate em! .... I hate super loose, "Wale laces" (for lack of a better term) ... But damn ... They got them shits SUPER tight
Indiglo 14's did it for me. I love those. Still slapping myself for selling mine in 2001. PLEASE RETRO these
YES, SOME RUNNER LOVE AT LAST!!! But truth be told, GREAT wears this time, heat from all corners of sports and styles
the columbias are probably the 2012 release,blue tint soles and look so damn crispy!before they confirmed the playoffs they initially showed picture of columbias,hope they release both lol!
nike hyperdunk went in, them SB's cheech and chong with the skunk right next to it was a hard picture and the toughest of them all was the pigeon, gotta respect the Staple (not too tough, but they nice) lol
Those are the original Hyperdunks. -_- A bunch of basketball teams wore them to the Beijing Olympics in 08
I got to stop this here,please don't call that super loose laces "wale laces" it's bad enough the hype he brings but,that's how the hood wore shoes,don't know bout the burbs.
somebody always gotta try to degrade somebody got damn dude worry bout your own "Swag" dude rocking his kicks how he want to hop off.
I'm from the hood ... Born & raised .. (Flint Michigan, King Hood ... Google it!) ... & niggas NEVER wore their strings like that! ... we loosened em a bit & TIED EM! The super loose style was brought to the forefront by Wale ... That's why I say "Wale Style" ,.. C'mon G ... I'm damn near 30 ... I know what I'm talkin bout ... Relax
2 be honest, it depends on the shoe but it is def not "Wale laces." Ive worn MOST of my kicks like that since middle school and I'm in my mid 20s from NYC. every area got a different style but plz don't give this man any props to the kick game besides he got madd kicks and some talent lol. BTW, this was a great WDYWT of mostly all exclusives and early releases.
