Welcome to our weekly showdown, brought to you by the sneakerheads, for the sneakerheads. Every week we pit some of our favourite sneakers against one another and ask you to pick your favourites from the list. We may not always agree, but what relationship doesn't have its disagreements here and there?
This week we pit five sneakers against one another and boy are the numbers all over the place. Some close calls, some total washouts, here are the results:
JORDAN 6 RETRO HARE
This was one was close. Very close. And that’s a testament to the quality of sneakers created by Nike Air Jordans. Both the Air Jordan 6 Retro Colourways are outstanding but it’s always going to be a little difficult to beat a classic black & grey combo. Another hare bites the dust.
PUMA RS-2K FUTURA
We have another close call. This time it was the PUMA RS’s competing for the top spot. Y’all picked the RS-2K over the RS-X3 but not by a huge margin (3%). Got to say, while we love the RS-X3, there’s something about the RS-2K’s 21st century inspiration that really did a number on us.
Ah the adidas Sonkei sneakers, what a battle of the colourways it was. And with the winning margin, it’d look like the other colourway is green with jealousy, but it’s not its fault. Green is a tough colour to pull off, but if you manage to do so, you’re the baller everyone’s got their eyes on.
ADIDAS NITE JOGGER
70 to 30 is what we got when the Ozweego went toe to toe with the Nite Jogger… oof. While both shoes have quite the history, our guess is that it was the simple one tone black colourway that trumped the Nite Jogger. Like, how do you even compete against an all-black? A: You don’t.
NIKE AIR MAX 95
Air Max 95 will forever be a classic sneaker with their iconic wavy lines, bursting with colourful combinations like no other. But even so, y’all preferred the muted pastels over bright & colourful. Guess everyone is done with the summer of 2020 and can’t wait for those cloudy winters. Us too, us too.
That’s our list for this week. Thanks for voting guys. See you again next week in this battle royale of iconic sneakers.
