Best sneakers of 2022


Design by Elaine Chung

We were all hoping that 2022 would lift us out of the doldrums. It’s been a crazy two years to say the least, and judging by all the headlines that flood our newsfeeds daily, there’s still a lot of misery to do and a lot to complain about. Where is the light at the end of this dark and gloomy tunnel? Well, here’s to offer a glimmer the best sneakers of 2022.

Yes, 2022 is just getting started, but in this short time sneaker brands have already released or announced styles that are sure to brighten up a shoe rack and hopefully your layout with it. You don’t even have to be a full-fledged sneakerhead to appreciate the quality design and feeling that a new pair of shoes could evoke. Because the best sneakers have a knack for spreading joy, and in these uncertain times, we could all use a lot of them.

The list below, of course, is still in development, and we’ll add to it over the year, but find out what’s available now, which we promise will add a much-needed boost to your stage. .

Sneakers Hot Step Air TerraDrake NOCTA

When Drake calls on the cell phone, it’s best to answer quickly. At the end of January, Drake and Nike released the NOCTA x Hot Step Air Terra, a sneaker that sold out quite quickly. Those who managed to get their hands on it were treated to a retro-inspired design that features perforations throughout the upper and chrome detailing on the tongue and toe box for a retail price of $150. Now it is available for resale for ten times more. If that number is too high, all is not lost: the rapper posted an upcoming black colorway on his Instagram. Exit details have yet to surface, but be sure to pounce when it drops.
