The summer is one of the best times of the year. School is out and unless you are working a summer job or have an internship, odds are that you have more time to hang out with friends and relax. It is also one of the most crucial times to be a high school athlete and elevate your game to the next level.
It is also important to be rocking the latest gear and following the style trends of the season to make a name for yourself on and off the court. Back in high school, I remember saving every penny I got to buy a couple pair of kicks to rock for the summer. There is nothing better than buying a fresh pair of Air Force Ones or a pair of Stan Smiths right before the break hits.
Every season can make its claim as the best time to be a sneakerhead but there is something about the summer that is different. During the months of May through mid-September, the sneaker releases are on another level.
There are plenty of things that will keep you active and out of your house during much of the time. From styling at pool parties to easier weekend/mid-week releases to the colorways to perfect weather to everything else, summer is a big time for sneakerheads everywhere. We all love it because it provides the platform for us to showcase everything we have in our closet without having to worry about bad weather. Here are 8 Reasons Why Sneakerheads Love the Summer.
