2011 was definitely a good year for sneakers, I damn near went broke trying to support my fetish. I agree with Panda Fresh though, its hard as hell to narrow it down to just 10, but here are some of my favs…
#6 – “A Tribe Called Quest” Nike Blazer Mid
This was hands down the best blazer to drop for 2011. I usually stay away from blazers because they make my feet look HUGE but this is one I need to add to the arsenal.
#2 – Air Mags
These kicks make my list for many reasons. For starters all of the proceeds went to a great cause Michael J Fox’s Foundation for Parkinson Research. Also I think its safe to say that sneakerheads worldwide wanted these ever since we were kids. And lastly they’re just cool.
#1 – Air Jordan Black Cement 3′s
Said to be Jordans favorite shoes, He won the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest wearing the 3′s. Even though my first pair of Jordans were the 7′s the 3′s have always held a special place in my heart. The hype that surrounds this shoe is now undeniable and everyone probably owns at-least one the many different color-ways. To sum it up it’s a dope shoe that inspires greatness.
