The Sneaker Report: 5 Urban Sneakers For The Perfect Urban Man
Let’s Talk Sneakers For A Sec!?
Urban Sneakers To Fit Your Urban Life!
It’s hard to define the modern urban man without taking into consideration his urban sneakers! It’s not ”just a pair of shoes”, it’s more like your personal ID card!
Indeed, when I used to rap, I remember coming up with a line like : ”you can tell a lot about a man judging by his kicks” and 10 years later it still applies (and I still wish my mixtape went platinum).
The word “urban” gets thrown for whatever reasons these days but let’s set the record straight once and for all. Sometimes people mistake ”urban” for ”trendy” and it’s getting out of line.
In my opinion, an urban man is more than just a label because an urban man wouldn’t like to be labeled in the first place. I think it’s more a state of mind than anything else.
More like a general open-mindedness to dopeness and a desire to standout. On top of that , an urban man has to stand by those principles regardless who agrees.
If You’re All About That, I Would Like To Personally Welcome You To The Urban Man Club!
Today we will overview 5 urban sneakers for the perfect urban man (for those who aspire to join the club, we got you too!)
1. Trasher X Vans Slip-On
Release Date: 07.29.17
Price: 65$ USD
The days when collabs used to mean something seems dead and gone but there’s hope. The legendary Trasher Magazine got ripped off for its logo quite often in the past.
It seems like they’re trying to take control now and implement their iconic logo on some of favorite sneakers. Their Vans slip-on installment is a MUST cop!
2. Nike Air More Uptempo “Tri-Color”
Release Date: 08.12.17
Price: 160$ USD
As urban men we love challenges with the things we wear. Your typical all black or all white shoes won’t make the cut to us.
Uptempos are hard to rock efficiently at large but now with this “Tri-Color” pattern; its on another level!
3. Adidas ClimaCool 02/17
Release Date: 10.08.17
Price: 100$ USD
While most of the key players are stuck in 2017, it seems like Adidas is already in 2037 when it comes to their designs.
From the patterns to the futuristic look of the shoe, this is the multi-purpose sneaker we could only dream of. One of those rare pair of sneakers with which you can run a marathon and still kill your “downtown” look the next day
4. Air Jordan 6 “Flight Jacket”
Release Date: 08.17
Price: 225$ USD
Michael Jordan is a living legend because his impact went far beyond the basket-ball court. What I like about the Jordan releases is the fact that they’re trying to implement Michael’s legacy in the process too.
This time the “Flight Jacket” release was inspired by Michael’s first ever appearance at Saturday Night Live. During the show, Jordan wore a jacket with the exact color way and patterns.
Are they pushing it to the edge? Maybe but we have to admit that the details and the overall look turned out great!
5. Tyler The Creator’s Golf Le Fleur x One Star Collection
Release Date: 08.03.17
Tyler The Creator is known for making headlines because of his music mostly but his sense of style is also undeniable!
Following the release his successful album called “Flower Boy“, the “Odd Future” emcee is set to release a collab with Converse. Revamping the iconic “One Star” model with a nice purple suede pattern as you can see.
The flower around the star and the back of the shoe make it a little risky for the average sneakerhead but any urban man would tackle this issue with their eyes closed (for real)
