Sneaker Sales - Some advices to pick the best

By @francesco108197

End of a year, beginning of a new one: it means sales, many sales on sneakers. Time to pick bargains, choosing if the price is right on that pair of shoes we looked at when it was released waiting for a better tag. It’s the moment to buy some general releases above all, usually left behind to save money for limited and hyped pairs.

There are many brands worth of a look in this period. The so called “quality brands”, renowned for their top materials and execution, but too expensive. New Balance, for instance. The Made in UK and in USA pairs are often great pieces to add to our collection, but the tag (in a 180-220 € range more or less) is a reason to not buy them in the “regular buying session”. Now we could find them at the right price, the problem is just choosing which ones.

Diadora is another one: it was a great year about Italian brand’s collaborations, so their brilliant general releases finished behind such great shoes like Afew’s Highly Addictive or Titolo’s Five Almonds. Well, the Alpini pack is waiting for someone who pick them from the shelves at a really fair price, together with some good, less hyped collabs (as Ubiq’s N9000 Cheesesteak).

Asics hasn’t probably had a great year, with a focus on the Gel-Mai, a not for all silhouette. But, for the lovers of the Japanese brand, it’s time to buy the good colorways chosen by dutch store Patta or the marine accents by Highs and Lows to highlight the rebirth of this model.

For Adidas or Nike addicted, there are some surprises too. Some Air Max 1s or Ultraboost are sitting online yet, the question is just being lucky with sizes. Then, there are some less hyped models at a good price ready to be bought: Campus, Pusha EQT, Pharrell Tennis Hu for Adidas, Spiridon, Dunk or Air Max 95 for Nike. And for whoever wants some luxury styles with premium materials, sales hit Common Projects and Golden Goose Deluxe Brand sneakers too: the prices are high, but with a consistent amount of money less than the original tags.
