Being that we had the games this year it should have been a "Olympic Shoe Of The Year" poll because to not see the Olympic 7's up here is extremely disappointing
off topic, but when is that wdywt app coming to fruitiion? whenever i go to the site it says app coming soon for like months now.
Must haves of next year the 5's but the paranorman shouldn't have been on the list it didn't actually release same with the supreme dunk lows and all the others that only came out in one store atleast the galaxy came to all 50 states a lot of these I couldn't even try to get
When it comes to Most Anticipated 2013 Release I chose the 5's. I'm copping the 3's but I'm not anticipating it more than the Grapes even though they are my grails at the moment.
Favorite OG Air Jordan Colorway of 2012 was one of the hardest choices I've ever had to make in my entire life.
To me, the best release this year was the Lebron 9/9elite championship pack. Lbj got his 1st ring and 3rd Mvp making this pack a big part of history in the sneaker culture and in sports.
most of them were hyped up sneakers and can easily tell which would be the #1 choice everyone chose, but other you really had to think about. had to make tough decisions.
great job overall SN but a couple of categories were garbage..best coalb of the year is hands down the Concepts 999..and also best sig shoe was Lebron 9 Elite but you put the stupid way of wades on the list instead of one of the best Sig models ever..no way wades shoe should have made this list to vote on over the Lebron 9 Elite and KD V..just my opinion but Way of Wades dont deserve to be on over those two.
As Americans we have the right to vote lmao. But in all serious great categories with some tough ones and some no brainers. Ill say the wc4s were awesome and I can't wait for the grapes
Lebron x, Bred 11, Olympic 6, Motorboat Jones, Cutting Jades, Invisibility Cloaks, Galaxies, Paranormans, Air force 180 mid, Hyperposites, Supreme Dunks, heroes/ gold medals, Practice Questions, Selvedges, Alpines, Practise Questions,
they put bred 11s in the poll with actual good quality shoes smh if the wc4s dont advance ppl are stupid
Well NIKE is the leading sneaker brand. Other brands have retros that people demand, so that category makes sense.
@mesmoriz3 Nerf's were 2011
@Shaded That pack was garbage
@DesmondDiggaDezDavis all of the shoes in that category are synthetic materials except the yeezy's, so how can shoes like the flynits or lebrons have good quality, good craftsmanship but not quality.
