The 10 Hottest Men’s Sneakers for Back-to-School
Labour day weekend is right around the corner and we all know what that means, it’s back-to-school season! The weeks leading up to the beginning of September is the time of the year when we refresh our wardrobe, and what better way to start that process than with a fresh pair of sneakers?
From sneakers with the latest technology to the classic timeless silhouettes, here are the ten hottest men’s sneakers for back-to-school:
Arguably the most popular sneakers in recent years, adidas truly hit a home run with the Ultra Boost. What started off as a performance focused running shoe has become one of the best lifestyle sneakers with its variety of colours to choose from.
Proclaimed by some enthusiasts as “even more comfortable than the Ultra Boost”, the EQT Boost 93/17 features a sleek upper with the most Boost cushioning that can be seen on any adidas shoe.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The Air Jordan 1 transcends fashion trends and has become a pair of shoes that can be worn with absolutely anything at any time. This classic design from 1985 continues to live strong through the countless retro versions of the model.
If you’re not a fan of high-cut sneakers but are a fan of the Jordan retros, the Air Jordan 4 is the perfect pair for you. This model released in several colours throughout 2017 and its versatility makes it one of those shoes that can be worn with just about anything.
Reaching back into their basketball archives, Converse brought back the Fastbreak in 2017 in a variety of colours to suit your needs. It provides exceptional comfort with the addition of the Lunarlon insoles that was not in place in the original design from 1983.
Everyone knows about the Chuck Taylor and how great the shoes are, but the One Star is another model from Converse that deserves some attention. It features a minimalistic design with clean aesthetics that allows it to be just as versatile as the classic Chuck Taylor.
One of the newest offerings from PUMA, the Tsugi Netfit is a great lightweight shoe with some of the latest technologies from PUMA, their evoKNIT upper and IGNITE foam midsoles. The caged netting on the side allows the user to lace them up in any way that they desire.
A fresh take on the classic 574 model, New Balance gave a modern update to the design with a sleek upper and some alterations to the materials that are used throughout the shoes. The New Balance 574 Sport is offered in numerous colourways and can be a staple in your rotation.
Celebrating the 20 year anniversary of the original design, the Air Max 97 receives the Ultra update from Nike that features an overall lighter construction with the single layer upper. The Air Max 97 Ultra ‘17 features the same aesthetics as the original design in many original colourways with a modern twist.
The shoe that was unveiled by Nike during Air Max Day 2017, the VaporMax has been one of the hottest shoes of the year. The Flyknit upper combined with the exposed Air units on the sole makes this a truly interesting design that has become a mainstay in many collections.
