7 game-changing sneakers from 2014

Our last post in 2014, and first of all we want to thank you for every time you have read our blog. Secondly, we want to share with you our small selection of the 7 sneakers that changed 2014 and the future of the sneaker world.

1. Air Jordan Vl  Infrared

There is no doubt that this year will be remembered for this great restyling of the Air Jordan VI Infrared.

On the 28th of November, this reissue’s release hit internet and left us just as amazed as the people who saw it for the first time two decades ago.

2. Adidas Tubular Runner

Inspired by the Y-3, adidas has pleasantly surprised us at the end of 2014 with the great Tubular Runner and their renewed structure.

Their neoprene sock with leather insertions have turned this sneaker in a must-have in every sneaker lover’s closet, so they were a complete sold-out in most stores.

3. Nike Roshe Run Flyknit

The Nike Roshe Run were released in 2012 and in such a short time they have made their way to the top-selling Nike models, thanks to their simplicity and endless colourways.

If you add up the massive technological innovation at Nike, you get the spectacular Nike Roshe Run Flyknit.

4. Adidas ZX Flux

Updated upper and a vintage running aesthetic. The ZX Flux were another hit by the brand of the three stripes. They are made of synthetic silk and match any print, which gave way to the creation of the already famous #mizxflux app.

5. Nike Air Yeezy ll “Red October”

Kanye West is responsible for the huge success of the Yeezy in 2014. Their Red October colourway and futuristic silhouette, together with details like the golden tips on the laces took care of the rest.

The Nike Air Yeezy II “Red October” are, and will be for a long time, one of the most sought-after sneakers ever, reaching high prices that only a few can afford.

6. New Balance 530 x Ronnie Fieg “Central Park”

Both the N brand and the controversial Ronnie Fieg (loved by some and despised by others) deserved a place in this game-changing sneaker selection from 2014.

These amazing New Balance 530 x Ronnie Fieg were inspired by Central Park. All the commotion following any Ronnie Fieg collaboration, together with the great color combination made this sneaker sell out really fast.

7. Nike Air Huarache Triple Black

They say they will be the sneaker of 2015, and judging by their success so far they probably will, since in 2014 the popularity of the Nike Huarache went up.

The Nike Air Huarache Triple Black are the perfect example. Their retro silhouette (which was futuristic when they were released) and the hype for black sneakers give these Nike Huarache a place in our short list.
