The 27 Best High Top Sneakers to Buy Right Now

Whether you’ve cleaned your apartment to within an inch of its life or smoked all of your weed in the first week, the walls are certainly starting to close in as quarantine goes full tilt. And despite all of the Zoom virtual happy hours that help you cling to your sanity, keep in mind that maybe for the first time ever, shopping from your couch has you in the running to be a quarantine hero.  Use this time to stock up on incense, wear your sweatpants to “work” and finally pull the trigger on some of the best high top sneakers available.

From once-in-a-lifetime grails to standard picks for any rotation, ONE37pm took the liberty of assembling the 20 best high top sneakers and where you can buy them right now (from the couch, pajama bottoms optional).

1. Air Jordan 1
Fight Club

Surrounded in folklore, there’s hardly a high top sneaker, even a sneaker in general, with greater cultural importance than the Air Jordan 1. The genesis of Nike’s most legendary footwear line, the AJ1’s long lineage from its athletic beginnings to its transcendence in modern culture, skateboarding and footwear in general has cemented the high top silhouette as not only an on-court staple but a streetwear icon regaled by top athletes and influencers alike.

The sneaker is one of the most recognizable designs ever and one of the only models to continually be retro-ed on an almost yearly basis since its original debut in 1985.  Best colorways include the Chicago, first Off-White collab, Pine Green and All-Star 2017.

2. Supra Skytop

Of the high top sneakers to make this list, I think the Supra Skytop is one of my favorites, with the potential to be top five. Based on pure historical context, the Supra Skytop was the ugly sneaker sweeping the nation before the phrase “Triple S” or “Arclight” meant anything to Balenciaga or LV. Straight from the IG mood boards of 2008, a bygone era of horrendous style, the Supra Skytop was one of the forefathers of the hyperbolically designed high top fashion-forward sneakers of the current era.

Designed partially by Chad Muska, (famous for his stash pocket on other skate sneakers), the model is a living testament to the duality of footwear. Just athletic and functional enough to be passed off as a skate silhouette but easy enough to moonlight as a glossy, fancy shoe fit for a celebrity on the red carpet.

3. Converse Chuck Taylor

Whether you’re an ancient basketball player, streetwear enthusiast, or scene kid from 2010, the Converse Chuck Taylor probably holds a special place in your heart. The sneaker’s simple canvas upper and rubber midsole was fascinating technology for turn-of-the-century athletics but the simply designed high top has created a near-perfect template to open the door for collaborations. With an unmistakable silhouette, the brand can introduce and highlight almost any fabric restructuring and colorways due to the strength of the sneaker’s simple shape.

With plain canvas and mostly tonal color schemes the sneaker also inadvertently invites the personal modification and collaboration with the wearer, just ask someone shopping for an “Asking Alexandria” t-shirt in Hot Topic. My favorite collaborations: Brain Dead, J.W. Anderson, Kith, and my sister during her goth phase.

4. Nike SB Dunk High
Fight Club

Nike’s foray into the world of skateboarding was nothing short of controversial and iconoclastic, but no matter how you feel about the Swoosh’s place in skating, most skaters would show love to the Nike SB Dunk High. Almost as famous as its low counterpart, the Nike SB Dunk is high on the list of Nike’s best silhouettes. As circumstances would have it, a sneaker that was originally rejected by its target demographic took on a secondary role as a coveted commodity for sneakerheads looking to collect different colorways of their favorite dunk models.

The most famous moment in all of sneaker history even had to do with a dunk sneaker: the “Pigeon” dunk release which landed sneakerheads on the cover of the NY Post and the Nike Dunk at the forefront of sneakerhead’s minds. Best colorways: Sea Crystal, California, Skunk and De La Soul.

5. Hoka One One Tor Ultra Hi 2

Hoka One One (look up the pronunciation) has been on the up and up since the end of 2019, producing eye-catching silhouettes with a high emphasis on materials and functionality. Their utilitarian vibe corresponds with current styles as hiking and outdoorsy silhouettes from brands like Salomon have been enjoying a long stride as a footwear favorite with everyone from actual hikers to SoHo socialites. Hoka One One’s Tor Ultra Hi 2, like most of the brand’s sneakers, features a bulky and built out silhouette with a neutral set of colors, giving off the aesthetic of a military boot.

Despite their obtuse shape, the sneaker is incredibly light. Hoka must-haves: collaboration with Engineered Garments.

6. Vans Sk8-Hi

It’s the Air Jordan 1, but for skateboarders. A confirmed classic, timeless, iconic and evergreen. The Vans Sk8-Hi originally debuted in 1978, and ever since it’s been an iconic silhouette for skating performance as well as lifestyle. The sneaker features a matchup of both suede and leather overlays with a padded ankle collar and staple rubber waffle print outsole.

Skaters were originally drawn to the added protection of the high collar as well as the all-over stylish design and jazz stripe, a white banner that now graces most Vans styles was first seen on the Sk8-Hi. Classic colorway: Stick with the OG black/white colorway for a vintage dash of timeless style and performance.

7. Adidas Rivalry Hi

The brand with the Three Stripes is not necessarily known for its relevance or prevalence on the basketball court, but the time-tested brand does have some heat still tucked away in the archives. The Adidas Rivalry Hi launched initially to some hype thanks to Patrick Ewing and features its most notable “Knicks” colorway which sees the silhouette in a mostly white colorway with blue and orange accents throughout.

Since then, the sneaker has had some help from the likes of Eric Emmanuel and Keith Haring, two recent drops that have brought some attention to the archival silhouette. Three Stripes for the court: Keith Haring or Eric Emmanuel.

8. Nike AF1 High

The Nike Air Force 1 High features one of the brand’s best selling sneakers in a high top format. The low silhouette has garnered a reputation as a sneakerhead’s ultimate go-to, a “buy one pair every six months” type of sneaker which speaks to the reliability sneakerheads have come to enjoy over the years since the sneaker’s late ‘80s debut on the court for Nike. The high top iteration of the silhouette includes a high ankle collar with an adjustable strap that crosses in front of the tongue. Best colorway: All except for all-black, collaborations with OBJ, and yours—make your own in NikeID.

9. Balenciaga Speed Trainer

As easy as it might be to stay away from high-end designer sneakers, it’s time to give the Balenciaga Speed Trainer its due. As a high top sneaker, the sock-like design separated it from other sneakers—sock-like design seemed to rule sneakers for a moment, most notably the Reebok x Vetements sock sneakers…which I still see in my nightmares.

In short, Balenciaga, for all of their lack of sneaker savvy or sneaker cultural relevance, did a good job capitalizing on the sock sneaker moment and created one of the better high tops from that weird moment in sneaker history. Best of Balenci: Keep it classic in the black/white colorway and, for the love of God, stay away from the ones with the laces.

10. Nike Air Yeezy

Straight out of the mythology of Nike is their uber-famous time spent with Kanye West, who is proving to be, perhaps, the most interesting designer of the last decade. Whether you remember Ye’s work with the Swoosh or if you can only recall the 350 Turtle Dove (probably depends on your age), the product of Nike x Kanye was the stuff of instant legend.

The Nike Air Yeezy was a confirmed classic when it dropped in 2009 and only went on to more fame and circumstance with the fans when the Nike Air Yeezy 2 dropped in 2012, continuing to stroke the flame of Ye’s popularity at Nike. Want to feel like Pablo? Pick up the “Red Octobers.”

11. Adidas Yeezy 750

Starting out hot from his switch to Adidas, Kanye blessed us with the Yeezy 750—the first of countless numbers of silhouettes and versions to come from the collaborative efforts of West and members of the brand with the three stripes. Hyped up off the anticipation of West’s first move since Nike, the 750 was hailed for its high top style and its high top price point, coming in at around $220. The drop was an expensive but accurate representation of what the two had cooking. Return to the start of West x Adidas with the “Grey” 750 that launched the partnership.

12. Common Projects Tournament Leather High Top
Neiman Marcus

No matter your feelings about the brand Common Projects, their ability to produce a clean, high-end silhouette is far from arguable. Their simple design mixed with super high-quality materials has made them the clean and classic go-to of the designer sneaker world. (A similar case might be made for Golden Goose, but that’s for another time.) Common Projects takes a super basic sneaker design and elevates it past the point of functionality by adding a serving of extra luxe to make it something worth bragging about.

The Tournament Leather sees a classic high top sneaker in a variety of simple colorways with gold foil accenting and high-quality grade leather which covers the upper. A nice detail is a zipper on the heel with both stylistic and functional design. Sometimes all-white or black isn’t a bad thing.

13. Nike Air Mowabb

At the heart of Nike is one of their lesser-known lines, All Conditions Gear—better known as ACG. Among these outdoorsy and hiking-focused silhouettes is the Nike Air Mowabb, a sleeper pick from deep in the archives that carries the energy of an IG story and some of the biggest IYKYK vibes ever. The sneaker is bulky, busy, and features a variety of design components like a huarache ankle collar, sock liner and upper with premium materials.

The Air Mowabb stands out for a couple of reasons, primarily it looks the best in the colorway of “RATTAN/BRIGHT MANDARIN-BIRCH” which is now widely referred to as “Mowabb.” Additionally the Air Mowabb clashed with the creative designers from Comme des Garcons, another three-lettered acronym brand that subtly replaced the “ACG” branding hit on ankle collar of the Mowabb with “CDG” a perfect detail that makes the simple black and white collab all that better. Outdoors and high fashion. Who would’ve thought?

14. 11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi x Salomon Edition Bamba 3

If you’re tickled fancy by outdoorsy sneakers, trail-running, and super treaded outsoles then Salomon is a brand you’re probably familiar with. If not, it’s probably worth warming up to—with recent collaborations with streetwear juggernaut Palace, the brand’s Xt-6 and S-Lab sneakers are some of the hottest streetwear accessories right now.

The high top versions of the Salomons are just as high-tech, incredibly durable, and somehow incredibly attractive to non-hiking sneakerheads looking to give their style a more technical edge without shelling out for ACRONYM and other brands hawking high tech for a high price. Get extra dirty with Salomon’s collaboration with 11 by Boris Sidjan Saberi.

15. Reebok Shaqnosis

The Reebok Shaqnosis was a no-brainer. The brand doesn’t have much to offer in terms of palatable high top sneakers, but this wavy design from ‘96 plus the cosign from the big man is certainly enough for real heads to recognize the legitimacy and impact of the Shaqnosis. Taking an interesting concept to fruition and using a simple black and white color scheme are just some of the attributes that make this sneaker a winner.

The seamless transition of the graphic from the upper to the midsole and also considering that 1996 was the first year of Shaq’s long-reigning tenure as a Los Angeles Laker are just a few additional details that round out the shoe as a successful concept. Yes, they’re still available, you just need to know where to look.

16. John Geiger 002 High
John Geiger

Maybe the only non-major brand high top sneaker to be included in the list, the John Geiger 002 is a clean and classic high top sneaker that features a unique lacing system to help the silhouette stand out from other minimalistic, designer sneakers out there. If you haven’t heard about John Geiger, well now’s your chance to tune in—the Pittsburgh creative has had “big things coming” for the past few years and has yet to fail in delivering a well thought out and fantastically designed project.

Gieger has some hot colorways out there but opt for the “Bred” version—that is, if you can track one down for a reasonable price.

17. Dior B23

All prejudice from the Dior x Air Jordan 1 collaboration aside, the Dior B23 high top sneaker is not only a good model but a successful execution of repeating patterns and the use of translucent materials on footwear. The sneaker looks like the Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor but less translucent (smart) and more high end (something Off-White also failed to do), so let’s hear it for Dior one time.

The sneaker features a Dior logo repeating pattern with other versions featuring floral arrangements and even dinosaurs. The price is a little too spicy but if you got it like that then this is the sneaker to spend it on.

18. Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard Overshoe

Quite possibly the weirdest high top sneaker of the last decade has been the Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard Overshoe. As a follow up to the equally expensive and hard to get Mars Yard 2.0 sneakers from 2017, Tom went overboard, taking the sneaker and affixing it with a large white bag and new outsole made from thick rubber with two lockdown straps over the forefoot.

Drawing style inspiration from space, the price followed suit, the sneaker sits around the $500 mark on reselling platform The best thing about this sneaker is what creatives did once they bought it, slashing away the white plastic covering the sneaker, a Mars Yard 2.0 can be found at the core of the silhouette. Get DIY with it and slash away until the Tom Sachs Mars Yard 2.0 (or some version of it) is finally yours.

19. Yeezy 500 High

The Yeezy line has a lot going on at the current moment, but don’t worry about trying to keep up with the avalanche of 350 releases. Turn your focus to the 500—undoubtedly a top Yeezy of all time. From the clash of neoprene, suede, and leather, the silhouette seems to channel comfort on every twist and turn of the sneaker. The 500 recently saw a high top iteration of the model and overall it looks great. The sneaker is an excellent go-between having to opt for a Yeezy boot (900, I think) or return to the 750 to get a high top style from the YZY line.

The 500 high only came out in 2019, but with no new colorways to speak of, perhaps the creative team has moved onto other models and colorways. Either way, the 500 High is a sleeper pick from the oversaturated world of Adidas x Yeezy and offers the incredible comfort of the 500 plus the added lockdown and feel of an athletic high top sneaker. Personal advice: Don’t sleep too hard on these.

20. Nike Mag

The Nike Mag (famously mislabeled as Nike Air Mag) is the granddaddy of maybe all sneakers but most certainly high tops. A futuristic spin on what “sneakers are supposed to look like in the future” courtesy of Back to the Future Pt. II, the sneaker saw an initial release in 2011.

Following up in 2016 Nike reintroduced the silhouette, this time with self-lacing, an opportunity to bring the sneaker from the film to life and for Nike to introduce their E.A.R.L. (Electro Adaptive Reactive Lacing) technology to the sneaker world. For most, the Mag is the grail of grails and if it isn’t then you probably don’t care about sneakers too much. If you’re going to take the dive, go all the way in and get the self-lacing iteration which included a super limited release of 89 pairs.

21. Reebok Question Mid

There is arguably no non-Nike athlete signature shoe as iconic as Allen Iverson’s Reebok Question. The sneaker has been having a bit of renaissance lately, with the brand re-releasing a myriad of colorways and collaborations of the classic model.

24. Air Jordan 1 Mid ‘Crimson Tint’
Air Jordan 1 Mid ‘Crimson Tint’

These created a heavy stir on SNKRS. While not the most dynamic 1s we’ve ever seen, this version was a unique take from what we are normally used to seeing from 1s design wise.

25. Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG PS ‘Seafoam’
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG PS ‘Seafoam’

Look at the material. The neutral cream upper, the suede grey overlays, and the laces make these 1s the perfect eye candy material. Plus the shoe offers a lot of versatility in terms of lace swaps, so you can really create loads of different looks from this one.

25. Air Jordan 1 Mid ‘Black Gym Red’
Air Jordan 1 Mid ‘Black Gym Red’

Red, white, and black colorways will always be heavy hitters. There’s no ifs, ands, or butts, about it. You can thank Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls for that.

26. Converse Run Star Legacy
Converse Run Star Legacy CX

Nobody does high tops better than Converse, and their newest iteration of the Run Star Legacy CX is just one of the many new items to watch for as we hit the peak holiday season. Ultra-comfortable cushioning and lightweight, this bold sleek shoe should definitely be on your holiday watchlist.

27. Chuck Taylor All Star Terrain

And if you need another Converse option to gift the sneaker lover in your life, then you should definitely check out the newest Chuck Taylor All Star Terrain Drop. Complete with a new hiking style and technological features. This is a must have for sure.


CoolKicks Collectible Trading Platform Earns NFL Superstar Support

Sneakers hold an important status in society. They are a signal of what is relevant in culture, and a reflection of what the masses are truly motivated by. Because of the hype and fascination around sneakers and its culture, numerous high-end resale and consignment shops have popped up across the globe. CoolKicks, a sneaker and clothing store, with it’s premier location Melrose in Los Angeles, California, has established itself as one of the top-tier destinations for any sneaker head. A large reason for that is how CoolKicks continues to push the boundaries of what it means to be a sneaker store.

CoolKicks is a sneaker and clothing brand, with a flagship store in Los Angeles, California.

The 30 Best Reebok Sneakers You Can Buy Right Now and Where to Get Them

2022 has been an awesome year for sneaker releases thus far, and while every major brand has dropped heavy hitters that have caused a stir, Reebok has been what we consider the “silent attacker.” From the Dee Brown re-releases to the different variations of the Instapumps, Reebok has been on a roll, and we feel it hasn’t been talked about nearly enough. As we’ve said plenty of times before, you can never go wrong with the classics, and Reebok has plenty of them. While doing a 2021 ranking is something we considered, we also realized that some of those shoes are no longer available. Instead, we’ll be giving you a list of newer releases that you can purchase either through Reebok’s official website, or resellers for a reasonable price. Below are 30 of the best Reebok sneakers you can shop right now.

1. Power Rangers F/S Hi Women’s Shoes
Power Rangers F/S Hi Women’s Shoes

Release Date: July 2021

The Power Rangers and Reebok collaboration isn’t being talked about nearly enough in our opinion—especially these. This shoe is progressive, and the technology is incredible with its 3D silver heel clip and color pattern. Additional features include a lace closure with ankle straps, a leather upper, cushioned ankle, and rubber outsole. Definitely check this collection out if you are a Power Rangers fan.

2. Question Low Basketball Shoes
Question Low Basketball Shoes

Release Date: July 2021

A.I. and Reebok have been busy, to say the least, dropping many different iterations of the classic Question Lows this year. The latest is a Clear White colorway which features an all-white upper and ice blue outsole. Silver and green colorways are also available, however, the green edition is only available to Reebok members. If you find yourself frequently buying Reebok products, then you may want to consider signing up for exclusive releases, discounts, and more.

3. InstaPump Fury OG “Digital Glow”
InstaPump Fury OG “Digital Glow”

Release Date: March 2021

Cue the evil laboratory vibes. The Digital Glow colorway is up there with some of our favorite releases this year due to their gradient colors, transition effects, and the classic chaotic Instapump design that we all know and love. These sold out quite fast on Reebok upon its release, but you can still find them via reselling websites such as GOAT.

4. Maison Margiela x Reebok Tabi “Bianchetto”
Maison Margiela x Reebok Tabi “Bianchetto”

Release Date: April 2021

Maison Margiela and Reebok have put out some fire shoes in their collection, and these are among the best. By far the best thing about Margiela and Reebok collaborations have been the blending of luxury style with traditional streetwear, and the “Bianchettos” embodies that to the fullest with their rare design and split toe. Similar to the Instapumps, you can still cop them through resellers.

5. Ghostbusters x Reebok Instapump Fury
Ghostbusters x Reebok Instapump Fury

Release Date: June 2021

Honestly, Ghostbusters couldn’t have picked a better silhouette than the Instapump Fury for this release. This shoe has all of the classic Ghostbusters colors and logo on top of the traditional Instapump design, and plenty of other cool features that give you a throwback to the 1980s. The Ghostbusters iteration of the Instapumps did as expected, selling out on Reebok about as fast as they were put on the website. Luckily you can still find them on the secondary market.

6. Daniel Moon Club C Legacy Shoes
Daniel Moon Club C Legacy Shoes

Release Date: July 2021

Daniel Moon just dropped a new collection with Reebok that features nine different colorways to choose from (though some of the colors are a part of Reebok’s exclusive access program), and are a reflection of the hair stylist’s creative and artsy side. The Solar Green iteration that we have listed is for everyone regardless of membership status and still has multiple sizes available. 

7. Reebok Pump Omni Zone II NERF Light Jammer Orange
Reebok Pump Omni Zone II NERF Light Jammer Orange

Release Date: June 2021

Reebok and NERF is another dope summer collaboration, and this one is our favorite for purely nostalgic reasons. The Nickelodeon colors are an instant time machine that takes us back to the early 2000s and seemed to resonate well with the Reebok community as they were another colorway that sold out within the first couple of days of their release. We’ve got you covered though—you can find them below.

8. Reebok Question Low “Glitch”
Reebok Question Low “Glitch”

Released in April, we really enjoyed this release because it reminded us a lot of early 2000s sneaker culture in terms of its design and colors. Allen Iverson has done a great job of making his shoe modernized, while still staying true to his personal style, and what made his sneakers so great, to begin with. Definitely check this out if you are looking for a simple sneaker that still stands out.

9. Hot Ones x Reebok “Spicy and Icy”
Hot Ones x Reebok “Spicy and Icy”

These still remain one of our favorite releases of 2021. A fiery colorway designed to represent the “Last Dab Apollo Sauce,” the “spicy” edition of this two-part release brought the heat with its fire hydrant red upper, and yellow outsole. It’s not often that we see Reebok go super bold in terms of colors, so this was definitely a welcome sight and something different to start the year.

10. Reebok More Buckets Men’s Basketball Shoes
Reebok More Buckets Men’s Basketball Shoes

Doesn’t this shoe just make you feel like you’re at Finish Line? While we do enjoy online ordering, nothing beats being able to have an in-store sneaker experience. As far as this recent release, this is a pretty sick drop from Reebok that hit the market about a week ago, and in our opinion, is a perfect shoe for summer hooping. You gotta update the kicks from time to time, and not only are these aesthetically pleasing, but they are also relatively inexpensive.

11. Reebok S. Carter

Following the turn of the 21st century when Reebok’s basketball division was on the upswing thanks to Allen Iverson, the company hoped to continue that upward trend by signing high school phenom LeBron James in 2002. Reebok, unfortunately, missed the mark on James and future Jordan Brand signee Carmelo Anthony that same year. They were forced to rethink the intersection of where sneakers, sports and entertainment were meeting if the 2000s were going to be meaningful for them.

In 2003, Reebok cemented that vision by signing Jay-Z to a multiyear endorsement deal that would include a signature sneaker and apparel collection. Reebok’s S. Carter was a play on the casual Gucci 84 tennis sneaker—an ‘80s gem with strong ties to a hustler’s way of life. Reebok launched the shoe in April of that same year, selling out more than 10,000 pairs of the initial run in a weeks’ time. The sneaker was famously accompanied by a mixtape featuring unreleased Jay-Z songs. It became the fastest-selling sneaker in company history at that time.

12. Reebok Alien Stomper

Reebok has thrived over the years due to unrivaled popular-culture placement. In 1979, with the release of Ridley Scott’s critically acclaimed picture Aliens, the film’s lead—Ellen Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver—laced up the undeniably ’80s Reebok Alien Stomper in the cinematic space odyssey. In the four decades since the sneaker was first seen on the silver screen, it has become a sneaker relic that is now available to the masses. Reebok first released the shoe in high and mid iterations in 2016. An updated version was released earlier this year in celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary. 

13. Reebok Blacktop Battleground Pump

There was a moment in the early ’90s when basketball found its greatest influence outside of the professional court. Playgrounds were a breeding ground for new talent, exciting tournaments and sneaker sightings that you wouldn’t find on the NBA hardwood. Reebok’s 1991 Blacktop Battleground sneaker was their answer to the emergence of streetball. It came in multiple variations featuring Reebok’s innovative Hexalite cushioning system. The sneaker was later re-released in 2014.

14. Reebok DMX Run 10

When Adidas made its bold proclamation in 2015 that its Ultra Boost was the greatest running sneaker of all time, they were actually taking a page from Reebok’s playbook. Reebok did the same thing in 1997, claiming that the newly released Reebok DMX Run 10 was “the greatest running shoe in the world.” It was the first silhouette to use the brand’s proprietary DMX moving air technology, built to enhance cushioning, support and stability.

15. Reebok Ventilator
Reebok Ventilator

Originally released in 1990, the Reebok Ventilator is one of the brand’s most celebrated runners. It is a technological whiz with its ability to amplify airflow through ventilated panels. In 1991, Reebok followed with an A1 successor: the Ventilator Supreme. Following its ubiquity in the ‘90s, the Ventilator saw a renaissance in the mid-2000s. The shoe became somewhat of a collaborators’ dream, as pairs with BAPE, Bodega, Kendrick Lamar, Cam’ron and others all positioned the Ventilator as a prominent fixture in modern-day culture and style.

16. Reebok Kamikaze II

Reebok’s Kamikaze II in 1995 was a game changer. Part of the Reebok Mobius collection with its bold and disruptive zigzag design, the shoe needed to embody the essence of NBA star Shawn Kemp, who wore the shoe as a signature style. Kemp’s run in the Kamikaze was highlighted by rim-rattling dunks, All-Star selections and, at the height of the shoe’s success, an NBA Finals appearance in 1996.

And although Kemp largely laced up the Reebok Optix in those Finals, he’ll forever be linked to the Kamikaze. The rapper Future, a current Reebok brand endorser, took part in a collaborative sneaker that was a modern hybrid of the Kamikaze II and the InstaPump Fury.

17. Reebok Answer IV

Allen Iverson’s impact on Reebok’s cultural impact can’t be understated. His signature collection is the company’s best, both critically and commercially. In 2000, the Answer IV was perfectly timed and touted as his best shoe since his debut offering in 1996. Iverson had his best professional season in the shoe, winning his MVP trophy while carrying his team to the 2001 NBA Finals. Moreover, Iverson was wearing the Answer IV when he famously stepped over Tyronn Lue in Game 1 of those finals. Iverson was the most daring and resistant force in the NBA. Reebok, at that time, even if only by proximity, was too.

18. Reebok BB4600

Although other ’80s gems like the Reebok Commitment homed in on nostalgia, few did it better than the basketball-inspired BB4600. Accompanied by the BB5600 and BB6600 in 1986, the BB4600 was unique in living off the hardwood and finding a place amongst metalheads. It was a band nerd’s shoe, often worn with stonewashed jeans and a fierce mullet.

If kids were gathered around the back of a convenience store passing around loosies while ditching class, you can bet they were wearing the BB4600. For whatever reason, the mid-cut style was a rebel’s shoe that let you tuck your jeans into its gaping foot opening. 

19. Reebok Ex-O-Fit

Taking creative cues from the women’s-focused Reebok Freestyle, the Ex-O-Fit was a masculine take on an everyday workout shoe. It was 1983 and women’s aerobics was still very much in play. Yet, Reebok, hoping to keep step with Nike’s Cortez, needed to focus on men. So the company created the single-strap Ex-O-Fit and the Ex-O-Fit Plus.

Sandwiched between the Newport Classic in 1982 and the Classic Leather in 1983, the Ex-O-Fit was a bridge to men’s lifestyle and fitness. In recent years, the Ex-O-Fit has been produced in collaboration with Opening Ceremony, Stranger Things and the Ghostbusters franchise.

20. Reebok Pump Omni Lite

Entering the 1991 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, Dee Brown wasn’t expected to win. It was generally thought that Shawn Kemp would take home the crown after another Reebok athlete (Dominique Wilkins) had won it in 1990. But Brown had something special up his sleeve and on his feet. Brown was wearing a black pair of the Reebok Pump Omni Lite, which he’d “pump up” before his contest-winning “no look” dunk.

Instantly, Brown and the Pump Omni Lite became world famous. Reebok took out a full-page ad in USA Today the following Monday, showing Brown soaring through the air with his arm covering his eyes and wearing the now-iconic Reebok Pump Omni Lite. The shoe was re-released as a retro in 2017.

21. Reebok Answer

After the towering success of the Reebok Question in 1996, it was going to be tough to follow such a shining achievement. Reebok didn’t quite top the Question with Allen Iverson’s Answer in 1997, but they maintained their footing with this broader shoe that was loaded with tech. Highlighted by a hidden lacing system and DMX cushioning stability, the Reebok Answer also made great use of the brand’s Series 2000 midsole tooling.

22. Reebok Aztec

Like the VTS trainer, Cougar 81 and Shadow III, the Reebok Aztec was meant to serve distance runners. It was a marathon shoe that was light enough to help improve speed while being durable enough to withstand daunting miles. Originally released in 1979, the Aztec was once one of the most advanced running sneakers around. Much of this was centered around its dual-density midsole, a carbon rubber heel stabilizer and the shoe’s Poron-cushioned insoles. Reebok re-released the Aztec in 2015.

23. Reebok Club Champion

Like many sneakers in the Reebok archive, the Reebok Club C fared far better in Europe than in the U.S. market. That stronghold overseas may have been dominant in the mid-’80s, but the minimalist tennis shoe has since found its footing in the states. Much of the shoe’s modern success can be credited to Kanye West, who looked to the classic court sneaker for his Adidas Yeezy Powerphase Calabasas, largely derivative of the Club C.

24. Reebok Workout Plus

When you look at the cut lines, slopped forefoot and positioning of the Reebok branding, it’s clear that the Workout Plus has inspired sneaker culture on a very large scale. But even with its transcendent design, nothing had more of an impact on the globalization of the Workout Plus than the city of New Orleans. Back in the late ’90s when Cash Money Records was beginning to make its impact on hip-hop, Lil Wayne and other members of the four-man Hot Boys crew were often wearing the Workout Plus.

In the Crescent City, the shoe was nicknamed the “Soljas” and was ubiquitous throughout the city’s 17 wards and the French Quarter. Reebok’s global product manager James Hardaway became aware of their importance in New Orleans around 1999 and smartly outfitted Juvenile and his label mates for the rapper’s “I Got That Fire” video. The marketing move proved to be genius, as the “Soljas” craze expanded beyond the South. In fact, the shoe is now more often referred to as the “Solja” as opposed to the Workout.

25. Reebok InstaPump Fury

In a time when luxury brand collaborations are widely produced, one might mistakenly think that it has always been this way. It hasn’t. Reebok, a pioneering force in such partnerships, joined with Chanel in 2001 to collaborate on the InstaPump Fury. At the time, this was not the norm. Debuting on Chanel’s spring 2001 runway, the predominantly black sneakers featured interlocking C’s at the heel of the avant-garde design. It wasn’t the first and wasn’t the last InstaPump Fury design, but it does sit largely at the center of the shoe’s importance. Like the Club C, which found success in Europe, the InstaPump reigned in China. In fact, it still does, while maintaining its place in the U.S.

26. Reebok Shaq Attaq

Shaquille O’Neal’s larger-than-life persona is equally monumental for Reebok’s brand history. The dominant Hall of Fame basketball player, actor, rapper, investor and sports analyst predated Allen Iverson as Reebok’s cornerstone athlete. O’Neal entered the NBA when Michael Jordan was still its biggest star. But O’Neal was different. He was fresh, he was fun and his talent was undeniable.

In 1992, Reebok released the Shaq Attaq to immediate fanfare. At many retailers, they displayed O’Neal’s size 22 sneaker to generate buzz for his first signature shoe. O’Neal’s moves on the court also helped, as he took home the Rookie of the Year honors during the 1992 to ’93 NBA season. O’Neal would have several sneakers with Reebok during his on-again, off-again tenure with the brand. The Reebok Shaq Attaq received the retro treatment in 2013 and again in 2017 for the sneaker’s 25th anniversary.

27. Reebok The Pump

What makes every sneaker brand special is the efforts to produce proprietary technology. Over the years, Reebok has had plenty, but few meant more than the introduction of Pump technology in 1989. A year prior, Daniel Schettino partnered with an industrial design firm to create inflatable chambers that “pump up” to personalize the fit of a shoe. The marketing for the Pump series was masterful. Reebok rolled out the shoe with billboards, magazine ads and players like Dominique Wilkins starring in a commercial. The Reebok Pump also famously appeared in Juice, a seminal coming of age film starring Omar Epps and Tupac Shakur. Today, there are more than 30 iterations of Reebok Pump sneakers.

28. Reebok Freestyle

While Jane Fonda VHS workout tapes spawned a billion-dollar industry, the Los Angeles–based actress was often seen wearing the Reebok Freestyle. Actress Cybill Shepherd even wore a pair of Freestyles on the red carpet, donning a vibrant, salmon-colored pair to the 1985 Emmy Awards. Produced in high- and low-top form, the straightforward design featured stretch glove leather paired with a nylon backing and cozy terry cloth liner.

Health, fitness and variations of cross-training wellness begin to sweep the country in the early ’80s, and Reebok was at the front of this movement, beating sales from Nike and Adidas by a vast margin. Although the Freestyle was birthed as a women’s sneaker, it plays an exceptionally large role in universal sneaker culture. Would Reebok even be what it is today without the Freestyle boom in the ’80s?

29. Reebok Question

While other companies (including Nike) had plans to offer Allen Iverson his own signature sneaker following his year at Georgetown University and entering as the first overall pick in the 1996 NBA draft, Reebok offered the dual-sport high school star from Virginia a deal he couldn’t turn down. As a result, Iverson began his career in his debut signature shoe—the Reebok Question. It was unheard of that a rookie would take the court for the first time in his own sneaker. But what was far more impressive was just how good the Reebok Question was. The design seemed made for Iverson, who, at Georgetown, had an affinity for the Air Jordan 11 “Concord.”

Yet nothing compared to how well the Question performed and how great AI looked in them. The Question didn’t take flight at retailers immediately, but as Iverson’s rookie season soldiered on, sales began to skyrocket. Retailers began selling out and calling for more pairs every week. Everything aligned perfectly for the Question to thrive. Iverson famously hit Michael Jordan with his killer crossover, won Rookie of the Year and was growing more popular in youth culture than anyone in the NBA, Jordan included.

30. Reebok Classic Leather

When you take in all that Reebok has achieved over the past 60 years, the company somehow found ways to take risks and make them seem like a sure thing. In 1983, the introduction of the Classic Leather was a calculated step away from what had been working for them. The shoe was a dive into the unknown. It was a casual sneaker that favored style over performance.

It wasn’t meant for the track, tennis court or even for cross-training. Sneakers, at this point, only succeeded if they were tied to a sport (or two). However, this leap of faith was grounded in a formula that had worked in the not-so-distant past. Reebok took elements from the Freestyle to ensure that the Classic Leather was extremely comfortable. Its premium leather build almost mocked its competitors, which still produced in canvas and heavier suede. The Classic Leather was a clever solution to a problem that most brands didn’t even know they had. Reebok led the race.

P448 Is Your Home For Italian Sneakers

If you are anything like us, then you are always searching for different sneaker brands to add to your lineup. One of those brands should undoubtedly be P448⁠—the home of Italian-made designer sneakers. The perfect synthesis of vintage and modern, P448 features meticulous detailing and Made-in-Marche craftsmanship that underscore the sense of luxury of each collection. P448 has quite a few collections available on their website, which are a synthesis of contemporary lifestyles, street trends, and original ideas from the visionary minds of their creators.

P448’s goal is simple⁠—to bring innovative sneakers with the finest Italian manufacturing and next-level design to those who live life boldly and fearlessly. Following the lines of the bold and fearless concept, each sneaker is based on the philosophy of mixing and matching to creative, captivating style aesthetics that embody a carefree yet collective consciousness.

Ahead of the spring season, we spoke with P448 CEO Wayne Kulkin to talk about the ever-evolving company and how they are making an imprint on the sneaker universe.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

ONE37pm: Thanks for chatting with us, Wayne. Can you start off talking about P448 as a brand?

Kulkin: P448 was founded in 2014 in Bologna, Italy, where its shoes are still made. We deliver innovative sneakers crafted with the finest Italian manufacturing and next-level design to those who live life boldly and fearlessly. Rooted in eclecticism, creativity, and self-expression, every P448 design, which includes on-trend low tops, high tops and slides, is engineered to achieve perfection in both form and function, created by an expert team that is driven by a devotion to quality and comfort. 

I was always a fan of the brand, and after meeting with the co-founders, my footwear company StreetTrend LLC bought the P448 brand. In 2020, we added it to our existing portfolio, and we plan to expand the brand internationally. 

***Just last week, it was announced that StreetTrend LLC, one of the fastest-growing footwear and apparel companies in the streetwear fashion sector, announced that actor, producer, and businessman, Mark Wahlberg, has become a strategic investor in the company, which includes the P448 sneaker brand, having taken a significant minority financial stake in the business.  

Over the past few years, the brand’s roster of celebrity fans includes Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, Sophie Turner, Connie Britton, Chelsea Handler, Addison Rae, Alexandra Daddario, Kal Penn, Halle Berry, Ashanti, Jack Martin, Sadie Sink, Colman Domingo, Olivia Culpo, Dakota Fanning, Gabrielle Union, Irina Shayk, Joe Jonas, Jon Hamm, Kate Hudson, Justin Hartley, Rita Ora, Sophia Amoruso, and Taylor Swift. 

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

ONE37pm: What Makes P448 different from other sneaker brands?

Kulkin: P448’s commitment to self-expression and creating experiences for consumers drives every part of the business, including its continued retail expansion. Despite many brands moving away from brick-and-mortar, we’ve been able to successfully grow the brand’s retail footprint dramatically, most recently opening our second NYC store location on 5th Avenue (following the incredible success of a 6-month pop-up, also on 5th Ave last year).

In addition to NYC, there are locations in Miami and Paris. With content creation as a core brand pillar, each of the P448’s stores are a hybrid of gallery and retail space and also embraces streetwear. They are also tailored to the local culture, featuring custom local artists and displays tailored to fit the vibe of each city.

We bring P448’s eclecticism, creativity, and desire to promote self-expression into the store’s design, as well as through on-site activations, showcasing the collections in an organically brand-forward environment. Instead of relying on influencers, like many other brands, we want the focus to be experiential, not transactional, so consumers come in and feel inspired to create and share content of their own.

ONE37pm: What goes into the design process when it comes to your shoes?

Kulkin: One of the brand’s biggest pillars is that of artisanal craftsmanship, attention to detail, and the bold creativity and expressiveness that each style exudes. All of our shoes are handcrafted with 200 different types of leather, textiles, and novelty materials. To produce a single pair of shoes, there are 68 different processes of creation, all just for one pair of sneakers.

Not only do we provide our customers with Italian-made, fashion-forward footwear to help them express their unique style, but we are also taking steps towards helping them to reduce their environmental footprint. We’re committed to using ecologically friendly materials and sustainable processes to continue developing greener collections that are better for the planet without sacrificing the comfort and quality that we promise.

Perhaps most importantly, it’s critical that every employee working with P448 share the same common beliefs, no matter their contribution to the process – inclusivity, the merging of music and art — to produce shoes and apparel that stimulate the senses on a multitude of levels, contributing to the brand and therefore, customer experience on the whole.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

ONE37pm: What do you want the world to know about P448?

Kulkin: We are a brand that believes in fun and enjoyment, comfort, and functionality in our shoes, all while providing a fair price-value proposition for handmade footwear out of Italy. At the end of the day, we want our customers to have as much fun with our products as we do.

ONE37pm: Where do you see the brand in the next five or so years?

Kulkin: Despite COVID-19 challenges, our U.S. sales have doubled year-over-year, and we have also seen success in Asia and Europe, and we opened storefronts in key markets globally. 

As we look ahead, the goal is continued growth and consumer/community engagement on a global scale. This year, we’re aiming to debut seven pop-ups shops as real estate continues to become readily available.

We believe that stores are meant to be an awareness tool for consumers, creating engaging and fun environments that showcase the brand and the products, and we want to continue the strategic designs and focus on developing the stores as social media destinations as we grow internationally. This immersive, unique approach also allows us to learn how to better interact with our consumers more successfully.

A Guide To The 10 Best Spring Sneakers

The first day of spring is this Sunday, which means March Madness, April showers, May flowers, and…sneakers. Spring season is always a fun time in the sneaker universe, with pops of colors and previews of what’s to come in the summer. If you are a fan of basketball, many players drop their latest signature shoes around the time of the playoffs (which start in the middle of April), with a sizable amount of new colorways hitting the market from some of your favs. Of course, we’ve been monitoring the latest trends and drops over these past couple of weeks, and if you are anything like us, then you are probably wondering which sneakers you should invest in for the season.

This year’s spring trends aren’t too much different than previous years in the sense that spring brings simplicity. You have hot days, cold days, and days in between, and sometimes it feels like it never stops raining. For that reason alone, you don’t really see a lot of people busting out the kicks (at least their newer ones) on a daily basis. In fact, there might even be more days where you’re wearing rain and winter boots as opposed to sneakers. We’re saying all this just to reiterate that neutral simplicity is the major theme every spring season.

Since April is also the month of Easter, you can also expect a lot of white, yellow, and pink sneaker drops as we get closer to the holiday. That said, with spring officially official this weekend, we’ve decided to put together an ONE37pm Guide To Spring Sneakers. Now pay close attention to how this is going to work. We all know there’s gonna be a flurry of new releases making their way to SNKRS, Confirmed, and Finish Line, but we also know that with those specific drops, there’s a chance that you may not be able to snag a W. So we’re giving you five “lottery” sneakers so to speak, and five sneakers that we know for sure will be available to you.

Sounds good? Okay, let’s get to it. We’ll start with the “for sure” sneakers.

1. Nike Air Max Pre-Day

Release Date: March 2022

The 26th is National Air Max Day, and while you could always pull out the tried and true sneakers in your closet, Air Max day is the perfect excuse for adding another pair to your roster. Seven different colorways accompany the Pre-Day collection, so you shouldn’t have any problem finding one that fits your style.

BUY NOW, $140
2. Ultraboost Climacool

Release Date: March 2022

Simple black sneakers are on the list of Spring 22 trends, and well, this is a simple black sneaker. Just about every adidas fan has owned some variation of the Ultraboost in their time of being a sneakerhead, and from a technology and comfort standpoint, this isn’t too much different from the others. If you aren’t feeling the core black, you could also opt for the Cloud White and Carbon options.

BUY NOW, $190
3. Ghostbusters Ghost Smasher Men’s Shoes

Release Date: March 2022

Some brands do the creepy crawly halloween-themed sneakers only during the month of October. Reebok, however, has been bringing the ghouls and goblins year-round. Their latest round of shoes in the Ghostbuster collection is certainly eye-catching, and nothing stood out more to us than the Ghost Smashers. These sneakers literally look like they can be found in an evil laboratory somewhere, and are sure to draw plenty of attention when worn.

BUY NOW, $200
4. Reebok Instapump Fury

Release Date: March 2022

You can never go wrong with the good ole 90s. We’ve been in a 1990s mood lately with our style here at ONE37pm, so if you are feeling similarly, then as always, the Instapump Fury is right up your alley. A true basketball shoe in every sense of the word, this is a good pickup for hoopers in need of a new gym sneaker.

BUY NOW, $150
5. Nike Infinity Kyrie Basketball Shoes
Finish Line

Release Date: March 2022

To say that Kyrie Irving has been spectacular as of late would be a massive understatement. When he’s not putting on 60 point performances, Irving is releasing bold, creative, sneakers that challenge the status quo. We’ve got four colors on this bad boy—White, Citron, Baltic Blue, and Bright Crimson, and they all blend together beautifully. Again, shoutout to Irving who’s been crushing it.

BUY NOW, $110

Alrighty then. Now let’s jump into some of the upcoming releases we have to look forward to. We’ll be covering these shoes more in-depth in the weeks to come, so we’ll mostly stick with the bigger releases.

6. Air Jordan 1 “USA”
Nice Kicks

Release Date: March 22, 2022

We came so close to not putting these on here. Not because we don’t like them, but because we want to make sure we have a shot at getting them ourselves. Do we even need to put a reason why we have this included on our list? Didn’t think so.

BUY NOW, $135
7. Nike Air Max 1 “Blueprint”

Release Date: March 26th, 2022

Dropping on Air Max Day, “Blueprint” is an absolute must-have, and definitely among the more unique Air Maxes we’ve seen in the past few months or so. Last year, everybody was so focused on the DQM “Bacon” re-release that other Air Max drops sort of got lost in the shuffle. Not the case this year.

BUY NOW, $365
8. Nike Dunk High “Setsubun”

Release Date: March 16th, 2022

While you’ll likely have to go onto the secondary/resell market to get these, there was absolutely no way this one could get left out. Look at the material. Nothing more needs to be said other than the fact that this shoe would be totally worth the investment.

BUY NOW, $178
9. Air Jordan 1 “Heritage”
Nice Kicks

Release Date: May 25th, 2022

Once you’re in the sneaker game for a long period of time, you can sort of begin to predict which shoes are going to be difficult cops and extremely difficult cops. This is the latter. Why? Because every red, white, and black Jordan 1 is. Heritage bears some resemblance to the Trophy Room drop from a year ago, and the Bloodlines in my opinion. The Bloodlines have been notoriously hard to get, and there’s no need to revisit the Trophy Room fiasco. Alas this is another opportunity to get a similar shoe. At least we think it is.

BUY NOW, $170
10. Air Jordan 5 “Easter

Release Date: May 27th, 2022

What did we say earlier about the Easter-themed colorways? This one is a little on the later side as it comes out in late May, but it’s still a sick shoe. Once every blue moon we’ll get a sneaker release date bumped up, so let’s hope that’s the case with these as it would be nice to actually get them during Easter weekend.

BUY NOW, $210

Honorable Mention: Reebok Nano X2

A good training shoe that also looks super stylish is always a win-win in our book, and if you are looking for a new one, then look no further than the Reebok Nano X2 which releases on April 8th. The Reebok Nano X2 – the Official Shoe of You – is designed with versatility and style at its core, while remaining performance focused. So whether you are hitting a hardcore workout class, racing around town, or anything in-between, the Nano X2 is built to support your active life inside and outside of the gym.

The Reebok Nano X2 will be available globally April 8th on for $135.

Are you not excited about these spring releases? We hope we were able to get you a little hype. In the meantime, stay tuned for more sneaker articles.

ONE37pm’s “Elite 8” College-Themed Sneakers

We’re here to start trouble. Wait, let me clarify. We’re here to start trouble during March Madness. What trouble you might ask? Well, sneaker trouble. Specifically college sneaker trouble.

Since Selection Sunday is a mere three days away, I’m revisiting some of our favorite university-themed sneakers. Fun right? Think of this as something of a March sneaker bracket if you will. That said, this is our Elite 8.

1. Jordan 1 Retro UNC
Off-White x Virgil Abloh

The tried and true holy grail. The Off-White Jordan 1 Retro UNC’s. Honestly, we could do an entire separate article on UNC colorways. The argument of which UNC Jordans are the best will always be debatable, and we could go back and forth all day on the topic of what’s number one. Regardless of what you believe, this has to make any list.

BUY NOW, $2,249
2. Nike Dunk Low Georgetown
Nike Dunk Georgetown

There are tons of Georgetown colorways as well. We’re just picking the Dunks because we’re in a Dunks’ mood.

BUY NOW, $280
3. Nike Air Trainer SC High
Ohio State Trainers

It’s not just Ohio State University. It’s the Ohio State University, and these trainers are sick. It’s like a basketball shoe with the spirit of the Buckeye football team.

BUY NOW, $750
4. Nike Kyrie 5 “Duke”
Kyrie 5 “Duke”

Kyrie went to Duke, and it should come as no surprise that he has multiple Duke colorways. All of them are sick, but this one right here—man.

BUY NOW, $107
5. Nike SB Dunk High Pro Kentucky
Dunk High “Kentucky”

You know we had to take it back to 2005 with this throwback. These still look and feel super current, and can fit right in with today’s sneaker culture. 

BUY NOW, $220
6. Nike Dunk High Michigan
Nike Dunk High Michigan

As an Ohio State fan, it literally pains me to put these on here, but I guess it has to be done. For all of you Michigan fans, this one’s for you.

7. Nike Dunk Villanova
Nike x Villanova

Re-released in 2016 after Kris Jenkins’ wild championship-winning shot against UNC, these high tops were a simple black and gray colorway that can easily still be copped by Wildcats fans.

8. Nike Dunk Low Syracuse
Nike Dunk Low Syracuse

Who gets the last spot? Syracuse baby. The Dunk Low “Syracuse” went crazy, and the asking price for these bad boys is still pretty hefty starting at $642. Anytime a shoe can command rent money two years after its release—that’s a badddd shoe (Stephen A Smith) voice.

Alright, that’s our Elite 8 folks. Enjoy March. Enjoy The Madness.

Breanna Stewart Is Changing The Sneaker Game

We’ve only got about two more months until the start of this historic WNBA season (fantasy basketball for the win), which means it’s several weeks before we see Breanna Stewart, aka Stewie, back dominating the court again. Until then, the two-time champ and WNBA MVP is keeping busy with a new shoe deal. 

On March 1st, eBay kicked off Women’s History Month with the Trailblazers Collection, an exclusive sneaker drop highlighting kicks designed or inspired by the industry’s most influential “trailblazing” women.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

Joining eBay as their newest face on International Women’s Day, Stewie brings her life-long love of sneakers and experience as the first WNBA player to have a Puma signature shoe to the forefront. She continues to knock down doors for those looking to follow in her legendary footsteps.

We spoke to Stewart about what it means to pave the way for women in sneaker culture, her experience being the first WNBA player in over a decade to have a signature shoe and plenty more which you can read below.

Trailblazers Collection

ONE37pm: Congrats on this new partnership with eBay! When did you first discover your love for sneakers?

Stewart: I think I first discovered my love for sneakers when I was in junior high or high school. I was always looking on the apps to see when sneakers would be released and things like that. I always wanted new pairs, and I didn’t know why other than the fact that they were cool and colorful. Basketball shoes and off-the-court shoes were really important to me.

ONE37pm: What does it mean to be working with eBay to celebrate women who’ve paved the way in sneaker culture?

Stewart: Partnering with eBay for the Trailblazer collection is something that is really important to me because it’s highlighting women who have been designing shoes and making shoes for women to wear by continuing to uplift women in the sneaker space. To be able to do that alongside Vashti Kola is amazing because she’s really influential in the sneaker world.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>

ONE37pm: You are the first WNBA player in over a decade to have a signature shoe. How do you feel you can pave the way for young women following in your footsteps?

Stewart: I feel my partnership with eBay is paving the way for young women who will continue to have signature shoes after me because it’s going to raise the standard. Air Swoopes are a part of the Trailblazers Collection. From where we started with Sheryl Swoopes to my Stewie 1 that’s coming out this summer, I hope there are so many more W athletes with signature shoes coming, and we want to continue to put pressure on those in the shoe industry to support and get behind women. 

ONE37pm: Is there anybody in the sneaker space that you admire personally?

Stewart: Obviously there are some that are a part of the Trailblazers collection such as Rihanna’s “Velvet Creepers.” Sophia Chang and June Ambrose also have drops with Puma that I love as well. Those are people that I look up to, and I want to continue to be my best for them so that we can all be our best.

Rewind: Our Top 10 WNBA Style Moments of 2021

The category is fashion. WNBA fashion. You already know the WNBA girlies bring the heat on a daily basis, but it’s always fun to revisit. As we anxiously await for the new season of tunnel fits and Instagram and photo ops, we’re looking back at ten of our favorite fits from the 2021 season. Let’s get into these fits, shall we?

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
1. A’ja Wilson

The question is which one? A’ja’s durag fits were a moment. Do you hear us? No seriously, do you hear us?

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
2. Skylar Diggins-Smith

Cool AF. Skylar always brings the heat, and her PUMA ads this past season were legendary.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
3. Betnijah Laney

Laney had an incredible season with the New York Liberty this year, averaging 16 ppg. Of course, her off-the-court fits were dope as well, and this look was one of our favorites.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
4. Candace Parker

We already know about Candace Parker. Champion, AP Female Athlete of the Year, and fashion extraordinaire. This Tomboy fit was a nice casual gameday look that Parker rocked to show support for the Chicago Bears.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
5. Aerial Powers

You can always count on AP to bring the fits. This playoff fit was super cute, and we’ve got to take note of the Js.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
6. Lexie Brown

Lexie serves so many fashionable looks on the regular that it was hard to choose. This semi-casual fit from the champ paired with the glasses definitely gave us Clueless.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
7. Satou Sabally

How about Satou’s outfit from the WNBA All-Star Game? Perfect for the red carpet, but still game-day casual. You love to see it.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
8. Brittney Griner

We absolutely have to shout out BG’s two-piece playoff suit that was designed by Kashmere Watson, who is a custom suit designer based in Houston. Give his page a look when you get a chance.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
9. Monique Billings

Monique did all the work for us with this reel showcasing some of her favorite recent looks. All tens from the model and style guru herself.

<code><p class = "instagram-media">\u0026amp;utm_campaign=loading</p></code>
9. Charlie Collier

This. Look. Iconic and elegant. The number one draft pick shut it down on Draft Night last year and didn’t let up the entire year. We’re definitely looking forward to seeing her lookbook next year.

There were plenty of great looks from the season, but these were just a few of our favorites. Keep up with us as we continue our WNBA coverage both on and off the season.

The sneaker is classic and sleek design made in Italy, the shoe features mixed hues of Discord’s iconic Blurple and grey, and is inspired by Discord’s beloved Wumpus character, the purple shade of its fur is pulled through in the quarter panel, while its green leaf is highlighted within the sneaker’s heel. An embossed Wumpus logo can also be found in the heel counter and the company’s new tagline, “Imagine a Place” is inscribed within the vibrant insole alongside both Wumpus and Clyde, Discord’s popular mascot.

We spoke to Music Lead at Discord Eric Barnett to discuss this exciting collaboration.


ONE37pm: This is such a unique collaboration. How did this come to fruition?

Barnett: Discord has become a home base on the internet where sneakerheads from around the globe can form communities and bond with each other over their shared passions. When we first connected with the Collegium team, we knew we had to do something with them immediately following our first chat. After seeing so many similarities in our mission, ethos, and community-first approach, we honestly couldn’t resist taking this internal project and creating a moment to give back to the community. As you said, this is a pretty unique collaboration and opportunity to bring this digital home base into the real world.

ONE37pm: What went into the creation of this sneaker in terms of the overall design concept?

Barnett: There were many late-night design sessions over several months and the final product is a super premium Destroyer I High – one of Collegium’s signature silhouettes with a Discord spin. The materials and colorways were painstakingly chosen with Nick’s amazing eye for quality and inspired by our beloved Wumpus character.

The purple quarter panel is based on the tufts of its fur, while the green leaf on its head is highlighted in the back heel tab. Some finer details you can see are an embossed Wumpus logo on one of the back heels, a bright contrasting yellow insole with our Clyde logo, and tagline “Imagine a Place”, as well as some others we hope you find.

ONE37pm: A very limited number of pairs will be available to consumers via an exclusive giveaway on Collegium’s Discord server on January 28th. Could you share more about that?

Barnett: Absolutely. In partnership with Collegium, we’ll be giving a limited number of pairs directly to the fans in Collegium’s Discord server. The giveaway opens on January 24 at 10 a.m. PST/1 p.m. EST and will close on January 28 at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. EST. More details on how to enter can be found in the server’s Giveaway channel, so if you haven’t made an account yet, now is a perfect time.

ONE37pm: What makes this shoe different from other sneakers on the market?

Barnett: Honestly, the care and attention we gave to this shoe, the process, and our goal is what makes this different. Collegium is already known for its insane level of quality when it comes to its brand, but really, we wanted this shoe to be our love letter to sneakerheads and their Discord communities. We hope the attention to detail we put into every level of this pair shines through – from the thoughtful material and color selections to the subtle hits for each brand.

We wanted this to be a shoe you’d actually want to wear and easily style no matter what your wardrobe is like. We genuinely hope that the community loves these as much as we do, maybe they’ll let us do more together in the future!

ONE37pm: Anything else cool Discord is working on that you can tell us about?

Barnett: As a brand, we’re always looking ahead to see what more we can do to create space for folks to find places where they feel they belong. From the ways that we build Discord as a service, to how we run our business and show up in the world as a brand. Right now we’re really just excited to share this collab and hope you join us in the Collegium server to chat with other like-minded sneakerheads and make some friends.

adidas and Pharrell Williams Launch New Humanrace Sičhona Silhouette

The month of January always seems to belong to Pharrell and adidas. This time around, the two are following up on their introduction to the Humanrace Sičhona silhouette, which debuted at the top of this year. A celebration of human-centric design and an ode to the organic feeling of the surfaces on which we run, the sneaker instantly captivated the sneaker community, and now the iconic silhouette is back with a brand new Shock Yellow color update. 

adidas x Pharrell

The Humanrace Sičhona is rooted in sporting innovation yet built for everyday wear, designed as an extension of the body’s natural form. Featuring adidas’ Futurernatural technology and constructed with direct-inject casting, the sneaker’s Primeknit upper effortlessly blends its anatomically-molded TPU midsole—resulting in a smooth, crisp look. Inspired by the inherent genius of the foot, the unique look is completed with Humanrace branding, as well as co-branded tongue-tabs and sock-liners.

adidas x Pharrell

A light, bright, vibrant palette, the Striking Shock Yellow colorway also features Clear Aqua accents and Bold Orange details.

The Humanrace Sičhona Silhouette drops on January 28th and is available in the US through Confirmed and at select Dover Street Market locations.
