Twelve moths, twelve sneakers

The end of the year 2014 is near and I want to share a small selection of our favorite sneakers released this year. Here we go! 🙂

1 Nike Air Max 90 Hyper Pink

A classic silhouette and a visible air chamber, like Tinker Hatfield suggested. A classic model completely restyled by the brand of the Swoosh.

Nike decided to apply a very special colourway to these Nike Air Max 90 with the successful Hyper Pink, making this model a huge hit, specially amongst women.

2 New Balance ML 574 ALL “Woven Pack”

Seamless uppers have been a real success in 2014, and the amazing New Balance ML 574 ALL Woven Pack are the perfect example. The upper has a finish simulating mesh that gives the sneaker a very special touch.

Grey as the main color perfectly matches the blue and neon yellow details, resulting in a sober yet special model.

3 Adidas Flux x Italia Independent “Animal”

The adidas Flux model was no doubt the surprise of the year in casual running footwear. If you add to ti a flashy colourway, the result is obvious: a major hit!

A rainbow mix of colours as a base is overlaid with a wild print, all of it sitting upon a fuchsia pink midsole and heel stabilizer. These adidas Flux x Italia Independent “Animal” were a hit for women :).

4 Le Coq Sportif Eclat W Peacock

An authentic classic by the brand of the rooster, with a new and different touch. Le Coq Sportif added a special touch to the legendary Eclat with a print that simulates a peacock’s tail.

At foot District we loved the idea and that’s why we selected the Le Coq Sportif Eclat W Peacock as one of our sneakers of the year.

5 Nike Solarsoft Moccasin QS

The beginning of a long story, the Nike Solarsoft Moccasin QS was the first Quickstrike we ever received at foot District, and that already gives it a place in this ranking.

Their streamlined lines and amazing color mix made the Nike Solarsoft sold out in just two days.

6 Adidas ZX 500 2.0

It’s obvious that in 2014 flashy prints played an important role in the success of many of the models we had at foot District.

These adidas ZX 500 2.0 feature a base of synthetic leather with a bird’s wing pattern. Over it, burgundy suede insertions create a perfect combination.

7 Air Jordan 1 Gym Red

Another classic, the first Air Jordan silhouette with a spectacular colourway. Bright red, that Nike calles Gym Red, covers most of the upper, and combines perfectly with the black Swoosh.

The final detail on these Air Jordan is the white midsole. Both the silhouette and the colors of this sneaker turned it into one of the year’s hits.

8 Nike Internationalist Leather

Our little selection needed a retro running classic like the Nike Internationalist.

The camo green suede upper with red and white details is one of our customer’s favorites.

9 Adidas ZX Flux

Simple lines and a seamless upper with the success of the adidas ZX Flux, and the selvatic pattern made this model all the more special.

The green shades perfectly stand out against the white sole, which was inspired by the legendary adidas ZX 7000 model.

10 Nike Roshe Run

The sneakers of the moment are entitled to a place in our list. The Nike Roshe Run turned the sneaker world upside down thanks to their simplicity and variety of colors.

The flexible upper of the Nike Roshe Run and their comfortable midsole turned them into one of the most sought-after models amongst the sneaker and fashion lovers.

11 adidas Tubular Runner

 

They were adidas’ most revolutionary model in 2014. Inspired by the Y3 series by Yohji Yamamoto, these adidas Tubular Runner are simply spectacular.

Their neoprene upper with laser-cut leather insertions provide this model with an elegant and futuristic silhouette. This turns this sneaker into a must-have in the closet of any sneaker lover.

12 Nike Air Force 1

To finish off the list, we want to go big with a legendary model by Nike that was released no less than 32 years ago.

They were initially intended for basket, but as years went by they acquired a more everyday wear feel to them. The pure white that covers the Nike Air Force 1 has completely transformed them.

This was our special selection of sneakers from 2014. We’re really excited to begin the new year and make a new selection with your help :).
