2017 was a great year for the culture.
When I say the culture, I’m talking about our culture. You know, sneakers, hip hop, art, etc. Good sneaker releases, great hip hop albums, and we saw a few things that should’ve happened years ago. But as the old saying goes, better late than never.
It’s almost a wrap for 2017 and everyone knows what that means, it’s time for best of debates. I have never focused on creating a “Best Of” lists because everyone does that. Instead, I tend to drop lists that others don’t like Most Overrated and Slept On, which are coming soon.
When it comes to the Best Of talk, I want to hear from the people. I want to hear what TSG Community thinks because we all have our own opinion. The image above doesn’t represent ALL the great releases this year. It was created to start the conversation and provide a few nominees.
However, there are releases like Royal Jordan 1, Zoom Fly SP, LeBron 15, AZG, Nike Mars Yard “Tom Sachs” and a few others that are not on the graph above. Perhaps there are even more that you feel strongly about and comfortable calling Shoe Of the Year.
Think about it for a minute and then drop a comment with your SOTY pick. If you don’t mind, please add a little context as to why you feel your pick is the SOTY.
