No matter how fly your outfit, no matter how well you can pull off the cuffed pant look, no matter what’s in your wallet, on your head or on your back, if you want to gain a reputation for having style, you must bring the heat.
The sneaker culture in 2014 has never been bigger. Release days feel like the new iPhone release — well, not quite — and every cat is competing with their friends and classmates to have the hottest, most rare stuff on their feet. From adidas Originals to classic Nike silhouettes to the Jordan Brand, it’s important to know your history and know which kicks make the most sense for you. Luckily, that’s where we come in.
At The Drop, we’re always giving you the 411 on where and when and what you need to be copping, and at the start of each month we drop The Prequel, a look into the sneakers that month that everyone needs to be ready for. Last month, that was probably the Air Jordan 14, with two super legit colorways dropping only a few weeks apart. The Ferrari edition had been coming for what felt like a decade, and the Black Toe hadn’t been seen in its original makeup since 1998. And in the months before that, hopefully you got your hands on some of the top Nike KD7 colorways, as well as Robert Griffin III‘s newest signature trainer and the adidas C-10.
However, October is a new month, a new day. Everyone is starting at zero with a clean slate. Get yourself ready by checking out The Prequel: October Sneakers You Must Cop from Champs Sports on the following slides.
