Thu Apr 3 2014
Sneakerheads are one of the most intense fashion subgroups around, and last night we got proof of that. The release of Supreme x Nike Air Foamposite shoes incited a near riot in Soho, as sneaker-hungry fans mobbed the Supreme store in anticipation of the new model. Finding the crowd completely uncontrollable, cops started macing the mob in an effort to restore order, which probably seems unreasonable if you’ve never had a near-death experience at a New York sample sale. What is definitely true is that sneakers are a major trend this spring, so here are five more styles that could also cause a commotion. Consider yourself warned.
Alejandro Ingelmo's streamlined silver Jeddi sneakers combine ultraluxe materials with sleek design, delivering a futuristic look to a classic form. Every sneakerhead should be so lucky. $650 at Alejandro Ingelmo
Camper's Together shoes are the product of a collaboration with designer Bernhard Willhelm. This artsy pair will keep you looking cool with their combination of pattern, zigzag soles and funky laces. $230 at Camper
While other Nike releases might look more outlandish or futuristic than the Infrared 23s, these shoes have that classic sport style down pat, without the fuss of other Nike shoes (we're looking at you, Foamposites). Get them as soon as they're released this Saturday. $145 at Nike
Adidas’ 25th-anniversary edition of the ZX shoes, which became available earlier this week, make a bold statement with strong colors and an old-school shape. $130 at Adidas
When you combine one of the coolest sneaker labels in the world with one of the most important living fashion designers, you're bound to get something worth looking into. Raf Simons works his magic with Adidas to create pieces that look part sci-fi, part modern art,and 100 percent worth the hype. $520 at Barneys
