For more than a century, athletic shoes have been basically the same. Yet every year, such companies as Nike and adidas produce thousands more designs, but which are the most welcomed and popular designs? Find no more, Sneaker Freaker, one of the world's foremost shoe magazines, has teamed up with Business Week, bring to you the top 25 sneakers of 2009. Here they are:-
Supra Skytop II
Currently available in Amazon with price tag of $103.99
Saucony Shadow 6000 Varsity
Puma Solebox R698 Light Ups
One of my favorite design. A modern twist on the classic R698 runners, these kicks feature Puma's bouncy Trinomic soles and light-up laces that blink when you start moving à la LA Gears from the 1980s. The light blue and pink touches are also 1980s send-ups.
Vans Taka Hayashi Collection
Adidas House of Pain Campus 80
Adidas classic design, contributed by Danny Boy O'Connor, a member of hip-hop's House of Pain. Elegant touches such as the gold lettering on the side and green and orange heel flourishes reflect adidas' handiwork, and the emerald green suede and clovered tongue patch were typical House of Pain-style Irish tributes.
You can find this classic design in Amazon at only $56.99
Adidas Ransom The Never Ending Path
Louis Vuitton Kanye West Signatures
