What’s up Culture Supply readers, it’s your main man Skillz back at it! In this post I am going to go over the current state of the sneaker game. No matter if it is buying to keep, or selling for money, I just want to talk about areas that interest me in the sneaker game. My favorite areas of focus are classic sneakers, basketball sneakers, lifestyle sneakers, collaboration sneakers. In 2018, we see different kinds of colors on training sneakers that achieve hypebeast status such as Yeezy 750s, and Off-White Air Force Ones and they sell out instantly.
Need I even speak on the white/white Air Force 1 Low? Yes. Without change this shoe has transcended through the years since the early 80’s. In the crispy condition pictured above any outfit no matter the color will be complemented with style.
The Adidas Superstar original. This was the shoe I wore 99% of the time during 7th and 8th grade. Just a quality example of what an all time classic sneaker is. Today I still love the shoe but wouldn’t obsess like before. Definitely an all time classic for me.
Here we see a all time great retro Jordan that easily transcends style from generation to generation and a modernized sneaker evolved through technology and years of research, the Kobe A.D., the twelfth signature sneaker in the line.
This month of February we see a variety of designs, collabs, and inspirations such as black history month, all star game, Chinese New Years, and Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Retro 6. As for my opinion on the state of sneaker culture I personally grade it at an A. I love a lot of the new shoes out and that are coming out. I think the brands are really pushing for stylish and technologically sound basketball sneakers. They need to be able to perform well and look good while your wearing them.
