It’s Week 3 in the sneaker wars series and things are getting exciting with each passing one. If you still aren’t familiar with this, The Drop 2 Drop is a sneaker showdown that involves you, our sneakers fam, to pick a winner with just a tap.
This week had some special kicks on the roster and just like the rest of our sneaker fam, we had our eyes peeled on the scoreboard too. Here’s how it went.
NIKE REACT ELEMENT 55 SHOE
Back to the polls, the twins are almost identical in every way. However, the polls went sideways with the highlighter-orange version surging to top spot with 73% of the votes. At the end of the day, looks are all that matter perhaps?
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 REACT SHOE
A streetwear icon now fitted with the superb React foam for superior comfort. Splendid.
Michael Jackson said “It don’t matter if you black or white”, but this time it does. And ya’ll held the button on this poll. The white one edged past the black one with a 57% to 43% votes. Shoes, it’s all about shoes. Yes. Shoes.
PUMA OSLO-CITY RUDOLF DASSLER
ADIDAS ORIGINALS CONTINENTAL 80 SHOE
Since ya’ll like white so much, here’s an all-white poll.
Similar classic silhouettes from PUMA and adidas. We had our expectations on the blinged-up PUMA Oslo-City shoe; needless to say, we were surprised. The Oslo-city was left at a 38% while the adidas Continental 80 Shoe claimed the top position with 62%.
ADIDAS ZX 2K BOOST SHOE
adidas rolled out a stunner in the shape of the ZX 2K shoe. It’s got ‘quality streetwear’ inserted within every element of its design. We personally love these sneakers for their style and comfort.
Pitting two of the same, we knew the gradient colour would be the top pick, which it was by 60% over its all-black counterpart. No surprises here.
VANS MOMA SALVADOR DALI OLD SKOOL
VANS THE SIMPSONS OLD SKOOL SHOE
Two of the finest collabs in recent times, Vans really out-done themselves with these two. The Vans MOMA is literally a fine work of art, inspired by the great Salvador Dali’s brush strokes. Flipside, we got Lenny, Carl, Homer, Barney and Moe appearing on the OG silhouette of the Vans x Simpsons Old Skool shoe. The Springfield natives took this round with a 60% over the 40% of the MOMA sneaker.
That’s our list for the week. Thanks for voting, and if you didn’t, get to it on our insta @dropkickhq. See ya next week!
