Sneaker Of The Year 2019
It’s the end of 2019 and we’re here to recap the best sneakers that came out this year. This year had a lot of great releases and because there so many good ones, we struggled to come up with a traditional "Top 10" ranking of our top picks. Therefore, we decided to break our list down into categories which also allowed us to include some less traditional "end of the year" awards, such as "Most Over Hyped" and "Biggest Disappointment."
We ended Season 1 of our podcast with two episodes covering this list, so make sure to check those out to hear our full explanation behind our decisions. You can find them at the bottom of this post.
