Welcome to week 5 sneaker fam! Before we start, a little thank you for keeping the sneaker wars going. We appreciate your 2 cents, especially for not being a passive audience. Makes us excited a little bit more than usual to bring you better battles.
If you still aren’t familiar with this, The Drop 2 Drop is a sneaker showdown that involves you, our sneaker fam, to pick a winner with just a tap. As the norm, we bring you the week’s results of pitting top kicks against each other.
CONVERSE CHUCK 70 SEASONAL COLOUR VINTAGE CANVAS HI SHOE
CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR 70 HI SHOE
Ah the classics. Converse have been a staple in the streetwear game for generations. This time around, their new editions look fab, while retaining the same vintage swagger. Although we expected the vibrant orange twin to gain the upper hand, the spotless white topped with a 74% over the 26%. Clean whites are anything but basic.
ASICS GEL-QUANTUM 360 6 SHOE
Asics are coming in hot lately with exemplary designs incorporating high-performance tech. But we get superficial on these mean kicks, just like the rest of you ;)
The orange-blue variant had pole position with 56% on the black-gold standing at a 44%. We really digging the black-gold, so you bet the results were surprising.
NIKE AIR MAX 270 REACT SHOE
No cap, these kicks feel like a million bucks when walking. Duh, they are a killer combo of comfortable cushioning. But let’s not overlook the engineered upper and deft details too. The deep black version had the most cheer with 58% over the grey version. Daym, them icy soles are a real beaut!
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 '07 ESSENTIAL SHOE
Air Force 1s have never looked better! Would you just look at that iridescent swoosh? Give the designer a raise FFS (For Force’s Sake). Both the colourways looks snazzy AF (As Force). Again, the clean white was the victor with 73% - 27% over the other. White and iridescence just hits different.
ADIDAS ORIGINALS SUPERSTAR SHOE
Iconic. That should sum up the Superstar vibe. These 2 got the crowd wildin’ with the animal prints. Yet again, the white variant emerged the winner with 63% over the black one. We are seeing a pattern here. Shoes. We are talking about shoes ;)
That’s our list for the week. Thanks for voting, and if you didn’t, get to it on our insta @dropkickhq.
