My top five choice of the most iconic sneakers in history!!!
1) Tyler, the Creator Is Back with Another Converse One Star Collaboration. And this time around, the Flower Boy is bringing more flowers. … Officially dubbed the GOLF le FLEUR* signature sneaker, these shoes are as flashy and colorful as the daring style that Tylerhimself has become known for.Oct 16, 2017
2)When Adidas first released the silhouette in 1963, it was named after Robert Haillet. After his retirement a few years later, Adidas pegged Stan Smith, then the top-ranked tennis player in the world, to replace him as the sneaker’s ambassador. Smith wore the shoes on the court throughout his career, even though the first stint of it was still paired with the Haillet name. Adidas officially renamed the shoe in 1978.
Before the Air Jordan XI even hit shelves, Michael predicted the sneaker featuring smooth patent leather would get dressed up with suits. Sneakerheads talk about the Boyz II Men awards show appearance where they rocked the “Concords” and how it was likely a sign of things to come for one of the most iconic sneakers of all time. Go ahead and search the Internets for art, it can’t be found, but it definitely happened. And even without that, you probably know someone who wore Jordan XIs to a wedding—possibly even their own. 18 years since the original release, few sneaker models cause as much commotion as the Jordan XIs—further proof this shoe’s legacy will never die.
4)With the Air Max 1, which is sometimes referred to as the Air Max 87, Tinker Hatfield flipped the footwear industry upside down, literally, by training his focus on the sole of the sneaker and creating the first visible Air unit of its kind. Hatfield’s inspiration came from the Pompidou Centre in Paris, a complex known for its unique deconstructed architecture.
