December has been a huge month for sneakerheads everywhere. From London to Los Angeles to Tokyo, everyone was hyped for drops like the “Legend Blue” Air Jordan XI, a sneaker that first debuted almost 20 years ago — for one game only by the greatest player ever in Michael Jordan. There was also a new colorway of the Air Jordan XIII that had originally been a sample way back when before finally releasing to the public after all this time. Then even from Nike‘s Christmas sneaker collection to new colorways of the adidas Flux, you couldn’t go a day without thinking about which sneaker you wanted to cop next.
That applies to Instagram, too. Memorably, after Kobe Bryant passed MJ for third place on the all-time NBA scoring list, I feel like the ‘gram blew up with everyone wearing their Kobes for 24 hours straight. It was amazing to see. In fact, despite brutal weather in places like New York City, December has been a monster month for the ‘gram. No one was playing around when it came time to stunt with new sneakers.
Each month here at The Drop, we’ve been showing love to the very best of the IG sneaker community. Under the #MyGameMondays hashtag, something started originally by Champs Sports, people have been coming through and showing off the best of what their closet has to offer. This month, there’s a lot of Nike and Jordan and they’ll be more than a few surprises in store. Check it out. Here are Instagram’s Best #MyGameMondays Sneaker Photos From December.
