Bringing you week 9 & 10 of sneaker wars with all the excitement and joy as the first. Hope you are loving this competition as much as we are.
Surely you know this by now, but we'll just say it for sakes. The Drop 2 Drop is a sneaker showdown that involves you, our sneaker fam, to pick a winner with just a tap.
These 2 weeks we lined up some new battles for you to relish. Here’s how it went.
NIKE AIR MAX EXOSENSE SHOE
The Exosense is an unorthodox take on the Air Max. No-sew upper and pods, Cushlon foam, Air Max cushioning - it generates great vibes from your every step. Back to the appearance, the monotone came in second at a 36% comparatively. Guess we got fans of shades of grey here.
NIKE AIR FORCE SHADOW 1 SHOE
Double Swoosh, Shadow AF1s always get the crowd hyped. Who doesn’t love a different take on a classic? The white-dominant colourway was victorious over the black-dominant one by 12%. Ya’ll still prefer white over black huh? Shoes. Just shoes.
CHUCK 70 VIBRANT KNIT SPLIT HI SHOE
A vibrant high-top that drips attention. We haven’t seen em like these in a while. Although similar in appearance, the cool-blue claimed the top spot with 74% over the other. Orange really has lost its appeal due a certain president knowimsayin?
GEL-NANDI 360 SHOE
Trail runners looking fly for streetwear. Super comfy and a highly layered upper. Can’t wait to see these popping in the scene. Among the two, the black and yellow won the polls by 14%. No connection to Wiz.
NIKE BLAZER MID ’77 INFINITE SHOE
JORDAN AIR JORDAN 1 MID SHOE
Clean whites are a staple for any sneakerhead. The caveat is how do you choose between two icons? But ya’ll did it. Jordan won by a landslide over the Blazer by 72% to 28%. No contest here apparently.
ADIDAS SUPERSTAR SHOE
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 '07 SHOE
Another curb-stomping poll. Both icons but man this just don't feel right. The AF1 pulled ahead by 58% versus the adidas Superstar. No love for adidas this time.
NIKE AIR MAX 2090 SHOE
These futuristic Air Max are such a delight. Dunno where to even begin. Gotta hand it to the creators for this one too. White has been unsurprisingly been winning the polls lately. Personally, the blue does seem great but hey, the jury has come to a verdict.
CONVERSE HACKED FASHION SHOE
A streetwear powerhouse coming out with a twist to the upper. The patchy hacked fashion got an experimental look and comes in both high and low tops. Clearly, the highs are more favoured, by 12% to be precise, over the lows.
JORDAN AIR JORDAN 11 RETRO SHOE
JORDAN 4 RETRO SHOE
A testament to Jordan’s legacy. Both sneakers embody the spirit of a winner and their distinct looks make it slightly difficult to pick. 11 is sleeker but the 4 is more layered. We couldn’t pick but you did, putting the retro 4 in the top spot with 59%.
That’s our list for the week. Thanks for voting, and if you didn’t, get to it on our insta @dropkickhq.
