Vibestyle Picks: Top 5 Kicks of 2017

Posted by Eugene Shahrezaey in Fashion

We are only three months into 2017, and already, we have been spoilt with an impressive range of new trainers. It’s no myth that demand has been exceeding the supply of certain trainers from giants, Adidas and Nike, especially with the rise of the limited-edition brand collaborations, such as the Bape x Adidas NMD_R1.

In this post, I’ll be putting together what we believe to be the top 5 trainers of the current year so far.

  1. Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra


The first trainer on the list is the Nike Air Huarache Run Ultras, for the past few years, Nike’s Air Huaraches have been dominating the shoe game, playing its role as an essential piece for your collection.

Regarding performance, the trainer has proven to be very comfortable with lightweight materials to ensure you can wear these in any terrain, for however long you need. The trainer has also been known for its excellent durability and traction.

This edition complies to the Huarache range’s traditional visual appearance, and the slight high top enables it to be worn with anything, whether it be a pair of jeans for a night out, or a pair of utility trouser whilst you’re on the grind.

Price: Average £100 (men’s)

  1. Nike Air Presto


 Next up, the Nike Air Presto, is an unconventionally modern looking trainer which has become successful on the market of urban fashion. The trainer’s dynamic look, with stretchable mesh allows for a comfortable wear on your feet, but at the same time, a stylish look with almost any outfit.

Price: Average £90 (men’s)

  1. Puma Ignite Limitless

Number three on the list would be the new and exciting, Puma Ignite Limitless. The Puma Limitless has only recently been released. Seen on R&B singer, The Weeknd, Puma have been carrying on their brand revitalisation, switching into a more respectable brand on the urban market, and the Puma Limitless reflects that perfectly.

The trainer’s performance is specified to be ideal for running with its modern technology, but at the same time, hosting the ‘design mentality and attitude of modern streetwear’.

Price: Average £90 (men’s)

  1. Adidas Ultra Boost


The runner up position in this top 5 belongs to the Adidas Ultra Boost – this trainer has very quickly become a phenomenon in the market, its simple design and lightweight materials allow it to be worn with almost anything.

The trainer is capable of high durability even in the toughest of terrains, one feature that appears outstanding is it’s STRETCHWEB feature, which Adidas states is the rubber outsole which flexes underfoot for an energised ride. Similarly, it’s TOROSION® SYSTEM enables it’s wearer to have a locked down fit.

Price: Average £130 (men’s)

  1. Adidas NMD_R1


Finally, the number one trainer in this top 5 falls to the Adidas NMD_R1. The trainer has had a successful start in the market, constantly ending up out of stock due to an immense demand. Adidas state that they’ve borrowed inspiration from high-end tech outerwear and combined it with their experience in urban street wear, which resulted in a construction of beauty.

The NMD R1’s initially kicked off by releasing certain colourways for particular countries, such as France’s Beige edition, which is a personal favourite, I must say so myself. The NMD R1’s of today now come with a shiny, reflective three stripes on the side of the trainer.

These have got to be the winner due to their high comfort, stylish appearance, quality, and high suitability with any fit.

Price: Average £100 (men’s)
