We always look for Sneakers that could fit to our Streetwear Clothes !
We’re still quite early into the year, but it’s never too soon to highlight our picks for the best Nikeshoes of the year, so far.
Each weekend brings a laundry list of big releases, and we know all too well that keeping track of 2019’s best drops is no small task. At the end of the year, look out for our annual Highsnobiety Crowns awards, where we recap the best of the best, including the best sneakers that dropped over 12 months. In case you missed it, our pick for the best sneaker of 2018 was the Nike React Element 87.
From nostalgic retro releases to the latest sneaker technology and much more, these are the best Nike shoes of 2019.
Martine Rose x Nike Air Monarch
Regularly priced at $64.99, and often found on discount, many would balk at the thought of a Monarch that is priced at $250. The inflated cost of Martine Rose’s collaborative edition, plus the shoe’s strange design that featured bulbous protrusions on the upper, made this release very divisive. But you can’t deny Rose’s outside-the-box thinking, as the British designer chose to saddle a size 18 upper on a size 9 sole tooling, creating a sneaker that is visually unparalleled, to put it one way.
Nike Blazer ’77 Vintage
Release Date: January 2019
One of the most foundational silhouettes in Nike’s catalog, the Blazer was treated to a vintage re-issue this year, bringing the shoe back to its classic 1977 form. Done up in three vintage colorways – “Habanero Red,” “Pacific Blue,” and “Lucid Green,” – the release included a handful of details that any vintage Nike fan can appreciate, right down to the vintage finish that included oh-so-slightly cracked Nike branding on the heel.
A very special mention goes to Slam Jam, who took the ’77 Blazer and re-worked it with an inverted Swoosh, which released on February 22.
Nike Adapt BB
Nike’s legacy of self-lacing shoes started with Marty McFly’s Nike MAGs from 1989’s Back to the Future II. In 2017, the technology became a reality with the concept-proving HyperAdapt sneaker. Now in 2019, Nike debuted the Adapt BB, a self-lacing basketball shoe that costs $350. When slipping the shoe on for the first time, a motor and gear train sense adjust the fit accordingly by sensing tension, while the shoe can also be loosened or tightened via two midsole buttons, or a mobile app. To learn more, check out out our detailed review of the Adapt BB sneaker.
Nike Air Max 1 “Grass”
Release Date: TBD
A 1987 running shoe re-made for the fairway, this Nike Golf Air Max 1 design features a synthetic grass upper, and is unlike any Air Max 1 design we’ve ever seen. This astroturf Air Max features tonal green laces, white midsole, and treaded gum outsole, making it better equipped for the links than your average Air Max 1. A result of cross-department collaboration between Nike’s Golf and Sportswear departments, the result is certainly a standout release for 2019.
