INHIDEOUT PICKS THE BEST SNEAKERS FOR YEAR 2016
The past year 2016 has been a crazy one for sneaker heads, with so many releases coming across all brands. Among all these releases, some really stands out and they are really hard for you to get your hands on. So here at InHideout, we have compiled a list of some of the sneakers we think which are the best in terms of overall concept and design for the year 2016.
ACRONYM X NIKE AIR PRESTO
Acronym x Nike Air Presto is the product of a German-based brand named Acronym, who makes name for themselves through their technical innovation. The design starts with the timeless combination of lightweight mesh and neoprene, which gives ultimate comfort and breathability to both your feet. It also features a water proof zip at the sidewall which completes the boot-inspired design. The sleek design is surprisingly durable and it sounds just as the brand Acronym suggests. Both brands work well together to come out with this masterpiece which will go down to one of the best sneakers for the year 2016.
AIR JORDAN XI “SPACE JAM”
Many may argue that the shoe is losing its ground in the sneaker game, but we think otherwise. To celebrate the movie ‘Space jam’s 20th anniversary, Nike released this latest version of the iconic Air Jordan 11 with a Looney Tunes-themed box. Staying true to the original version, this version only comes with a slightly higher rising patent leather on the heel featuring “45” embroidery. This simple yet classic design makes it into undoubtedly one of the best sneakers for the year.
It’s definitely not the first time Pharrell collaborates with Adidas Originals, and this NMD is one of the most memorable shoes that you can think of, with a bold text decoration of the words “human” and “race” appearing on the right and left shoe respectively to promote all of mankind’s connectivity, love, passion, and energy. Adding more to its meaning, it is complimented with an innovative design with a unique lacing system that is connected to the midsole. One thing that makes it one of the best silhouettes is its vibrancy and bold colour-ways.
ADIDAS ACE 17+ PURECONTROL ULTRA BOOST RED
Taking inspiration from the iconic 2002 Predator Mania, featuring its red accents, Adidas comes out with this limited edition Ace 17+ Purecontrol Ultra Boost Red. This limited edition features 3 white stripes to stand out from one of its all black first predecessor. It’s designed exclusively to fit for the street, the shoes are equipped with renowned mid and out-sole of the popular Adidas Ultra Boost running shoes. This is definitely one of the “must cope” items, even for non-soccer fans.
A reinterpretation of Nike Air Force 1 1983′s rollout, inspired by the SFB boot for the special forces, the Nike Special Forces Air Force 1 is equipped with a futuristic look featuring premium full grain leather with a gusseted tongue for enhanced protection. Another design detail which stands out includes two different straps to ensure our feet remain locked in. The Nike Special Forces Air Force 1 is one of the best example of how we can implement new inspiration and innovate design. Thus, coming out with one of the best.
