As we wind up this year, we have reviewed its highlights to give you the finest of 2018 in shoe designs. Although most footwear stores have dropped various footwear brands this year, we will only cover some of the best shoes that can be termed as sneakers of the year.
While we will keep the list up to date, here is a list of the best designs of the year up to now, with highlights from Nike, Adidas, Air Jordan, and others.
Nike Air Max 180 X COMME des GARCONS Homme Plus
Most collaborations do not survive for more than one season, but Nike and COMME des GARCONS have been going further for decades now. Revealed on the runway at Paris Fashion Week during the SS18 shows, the nike shoes were finally released in three colorways.
Pink is the foundation of each sneaker. The shoes were initially publicized at Dover Street Market, and then to subsequent retail stores. Even the individuals who don’t like shouting colors might want to reconsider their preferences and add pink to their wardrobe.
Nike Air Max 98 “Gundam”
After the return of the little-known Air Max 98 in 2016, it appeared with new colorways in early 2018. This gave Air Max a new alternative to the more popular models like Air Max Tn and Air Max 1.
The “Gundam” colorway is an advancement of the RX-78-2 ensemble from the famous Gundam science fiction series, with a white and blue upper featuring red parts and a full-length air element.
Adidas Originals Yung 1
Originals Young 1 is a revised version of the Adidas vintage Falkendorf shoe, but people always mistake it for a new design. Yung 1 2018 was released in June with various strong colorways. Later it was designed using multiple makeup versions including Solebox, Size, END Clothing, and Sneakerstuff.
It also features another colorway inspired by Frieza, a character from Dragon Ball Z. This may probably be the best sho design that Adidas will design in 2018. It features the style of the mid-90s, but it has been redesigned with new modern features.
Nike Air Jordan III “Black Cement”
The Black Cement III is a successful brand in the Jordan company. It is the first basketball shoe that features a visible air bubble and a cement print that can be easily recognized.
While the colorway was initially released in 1988, the famous sneaker was released in February 2018 with the Nike Air logo on the heel and not the Jumpman logo like other previous brands.
Dior Homme B22
Because this sneaker has begun to gain popularity, various famous brands have introduced their own forms, including Louis Vuitton and Gucci.
Developed by Van Assche of Dior Homme, the B22 model is perhaps the best version of the model. It features embellished proportions of aspects that perfectly fits with the sporty aesthetic of the shoe. The well-matched color blocking, refined Dior Homme Badge, and the rope laces enhance the look of the sneakers.The list is long, but these are some of the best shoe designs in 2018.
