Coming up at the turn of the century, if you weren’t copping fresh white-on-white Air Force 1s at least two to three times per year, you were slipping. The shoe was everywhere, from Nelly videos to MTV Cribs episodes. It wasn’t that the sneaker wasn’t a trendsetting classic, something that had been in demand for years. It was just a perfect storm, the shoe meshing with the culture to create a certified beast.
Just in time for spring, the white-on-white Uptowns, as well as white-on-white versions of the Nike Air Max 95 and Air Max 90, are all available at Champs Sports. This year, just like every year, they need to be in your rotation for the spring weather. That’s just as true now in 2015 as it was 15 years ago. Any list marking the top sneakers to watch for this season — like this one — needs to have them on there.
Speaking of shoes that’ll kill it in ’15, there’s also the adidas Ultra Boost, being billed as the most technological advanced running shoe ever made. Comprised of 3,000 energy capsules within the Boost midsole, the shoe knows exactly how to toe the line between comfort and support, between soft and too soft, which is a necessity for long-distance runners.
Overall, between shoes like the aforementioned Ultra Boost, and the Air Max 90, 95, and Air Force 1, we’ve never been this spoiled. Both Nike and adidas are hitting on all cylinders. Add in the Yeezy Boost from the 3-Stripes and it’s a good time to be a sneaker fan.
In 2015, styles are constantly changing. However some things, like our love for the white-on-white Air Force 1, Air Max 95, and Air Max 90, will always stay the same. These are the Sneakers You Better Have This Spring.
