Top 18 Sneaker Pickups of 2018

It’s that time again, another year in the books! 2018 was the craziest year in my 10+ years of buying sneakers – filled with collabs and heat releases almost every week! Having to narrow down my pickups to only 18 pairs was no easy task but I finally managed to get it done. Check out my countdown as I go from 18 to 1, and see how it compares to your list!

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Static” Review

To close out 2018, Adidas dropped one more Yeezy Boost 350 V2, this time in a static-patterned primeknit. Most notably, these also replaced the traditional stripe on the lateral side with translucent netting, giving the wearer a unique opportunity to add their own flavour through their sock game.

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Butter” Review

The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 finally made its return this year with the debut “Butter” colourway. Featuring a pale neon yellow Primeknit upper atop the ultra comfortable Boost midsole, these were released just in time for summer and were arguably the most easily obtainable colourway to ever release! Check out my review and see how these are on feet!

Adidas Yeezy 500 Desert Rat “Blush” Review

The latest Adidas Yeezy silhouette to drop, the Yeezy 500 released its second colourway in global retailers this past weekend. These chunky runners fit the theme of today’s sneaker trends, but are they simply too “out there” from a design perspective to be embraced by the majority of sneaker aficionados?

Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runner Review

After initially releasing in 2017, the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runner restocked once again this past March. A significant departure from the design of previous Yeezy Boost sneakers, these embodied the “Dad Shoe” wave that has been capturing the hearts of sneakerheads lately. Check out my long overdue review and see how these look on feet!

Nike Flyknit Trainer “Black / White” (Oreo) Review

As if February didn’t have enough heat releases, we ended the month with the re-release of the Nike Flyknit Trainer in the much loved “Black / White”, or “Oreo” colourway. Always being a fan favourite, these Trainers released almost identical to its OG form and it was to no surprise that they flew off the shelves on the very first day. Check out my latest review and see how they look on feet!
