It’s been a great year for sneakers and shoes, and we’re not even halfway through 2017. From Adidas to Under Armour, and the usual suspects at Nike, there are some incredible designs that have come out since January. Of course, this is all subjective and nothing is perfect, but we decided to take a shot at previewing our favorite shoes of the year.
To discuss some of the best, we brought in Sandy Dover, former writer for SLAM’s KICKS annuals, espnW, and Complex. Dover has an insider’s perspective on many of the latest brands and products, while personally working with the likes of Jordan, adidas, New Balance, Reebok, Brooks, and several other brands.
