Runners up, and testament to my love of Nike's collections and collaborations this year come:
1) Nike x Supreme. On the back of Supreme being the brand of choice for Odd Future and its enigmatic leader, Tyler, the Creator.
2) Nike Air Jordan. The latest incarnation of the iconic shoe has found fans in a new generation of younger hipsters, yet still remains a classic 26 years after the original.

'Its been a long time, I shouldn't have left you, without a strong [shoe] to step to.'
Eric B & Rakim (You Know I Got Soul)
My apologies loyal readers, I have been in transition! The messages from readers like @JammyOlives on Twitter really gave me a shove to get producing some new material.
Anyway I'm back now and you will be blessed with my interpretation of a year in the shoe game, in the form of the The Sock&Sole Awards, as you can tell this idea came from the VMA's and I thought to do my own.
The format is simple. Six categories:
- Best Smart Shoe
- Best Sock
- Best Casual Shoe
- Best Trainer
- Sock Brand of the Year
- Shoe Brand of the Year
Shortlist of three, from which the winner will be selected, by Sock&Sole.
