2016 has been a pretty rough year for everything except sneakers. This calendar year has actually provided us with some heavy handed heat from brands across the board. As usual there were some big releases and a few smaller ones but there are only a few that left a lasting enough impression to make our Best of 2016 list.

When tasked with whittling down the pack to the Best of 2016  some just didn’t make the cut but more than a few of your favorites are listed along with a few you may have forgotten about. Join us in looking back over a year of releases and recount the steps of some of your favorite brands.
