Street Style (1/30/2013)
We sometimes forget about what’s in our sneaker closets. You have your favorites all lined up at the front of your closet, a stack that you want to keep deadstock sitting under a pile of clothes in the back, and then another stack in another corner that you forget that you even own. So this week’s street style is dedicated to those shoes that you sometimes forget you even have, and ultimately, the sneakers you copped in the past year that are considered sleepers. That’s why this week’s street style is headlined by the Lebron 9 Elite “South Beach” colorway, a sneaker so well designed and detailed that you just want to keep it in its box forever. Other sneakers that are commonly considered sleepers highlighted in this week’s street style is the Air Penny V “Dolphins”, the Nike Air Foamposite Pro, the Nike Kobe 8 System “Python” and a very subtle version of the Air Jordan 1 Retro in black/shadow grey. Let us know in the comments below which sneaker is a sleeper in your closet.
