This year has been both rewarding and especially cruel to sneakerheads. It seems like every other week there’s a new shoe that’s clogging up our feeds and grabbing our attention. It’s clear to see why it can be so disheartening to take an L on these hyped shoes.
SoleSavy’s mission is to provide members the knowledge and tools to help them cop manually, it’s impossible to cop them all. With all that attention on hyped kicks, there aren’t nearly enough people praising the lesser-known gems, general releases, and non-sneaker footwear that is equally as great. Well, other than the team here at WearTesters, who think it’s important and do it on the regular.
For SoleSavy’s latest feature, writer Alex Wong asks several creatives and folks from the fashion world about their favorite non-hyped footwear. Wong spoke with such voices as Nordstrom’s Men’s Fashion and Editorial Director Jian Deleon, GQ writer Yang Yi-Goh, illustrator @drakecereal, and even SoleSavy’s very own young starlet @dean.hilario.
