It has been a great year for all sneaker heads and enthusiasts as all brands released great lifestyle and performance sneakers. Jordan Brand, Adidas, Nike and more sneaker brands have made it a paradise for everyone leaving all of the sneaker heads drooling with their amazing releases.
For me personally, it’s also been a great year having a lot of Jordan retros released and different Nike signature shoes. Adidas also reached it’s peak with various releases of their most hyped pairs.
Here’s my top 5 Sneakers of 2016.
#5. Adidas Ultraboost (Caged and Uncaged)
This has been so far the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. Considered as the number 1 pair of running sneakers, with the boost cushioning technology this pair is probably going to stay as the top pair of sneakers in the running category as Adidas prepares more releases of different variety of Ultraboost in the pipeline.

The hype is real!! This boost cushioned pair of sneaker is surely one of the most hyped kicks of 2016. With pure boost technology sole and prime knit version upper and different colorways, this has been one of the most successful releases of Adidas so far. Different collaborations with different brands have been innovated by Adidas such as NMD x Mastermind pair and the most recent hyped pair the Bape Camo NMD that made this variety one of the most anticipated products in the sneaker game especially for those hypebeast out there.

#3. Yeezy 350 V2.
Another Kanye product that keeps the hypebeast community rolling, one of the most comfortable and sought after sneaker of 2016 and will surely continue this 2017. With it’s very neat box with a huge 350 logo on the upper part, this pair maintains it’s classy look and as of comfort? Man, this pair is comfy, the way it fits your feet it really makes you feel you’re wearing something light and like walking on clouds. Sizing really matters in this kind of pair cause sometimes you need to upsize or downsize but you can just remove that insole if you’re in a midsize range and it will perfectly work for you. Different varieties have been released for this joint but the belugas stands out among all of these V2 releases and still holds a high resell value in the sneaker market.

#2. Air Jordan 11 Space Jam.
Marking the 20th anniversary of the movie Space Jam, Jordan Brand released an anniversary pair of the same sneakers worn by Michael Jordan in the epic movie of the 90’s. Considered as one of the grails in your sneaker collection, Man, you’ll never go wrong with these joints as the heat for this pair is certainly up to the ceiling and if you are a Jordan Brand collector, this pair is a must have up there on your display room.
And number 1!!
#1. Air Jordan 1 Breds “BANNED”.
This historic pair originally released on 1985 is the first pair of sneakers worn by Michael Jordan. This pair is a controversial joint during this era as this sneaker was banned by the NBA because of it’s uniformity rule but Michael Jordan continued to wear these while Nike pays for the fine for each game he wears these bad boys. This is the Holy Grail of all Jordan sneakers and if you are a collector, you should have these. With a very few releases of the Jordan 1 Banned, the resell value went crazy high as everyone wanted to get a hold of each pair. Well bro, I doubled up on these!!
