Spring is here and for sneakerheads that means it’s time to break out those new fresh sneakers they’ve been saving up in hibernation since the winter. Of course, there are the rarities that everybody tried to cop, but there are number of kicks recently and the past few months that have been sitting in stores waiting for that much-needed price drop. I know from personal experience that I have cut down my spending on sneakers because save for a hyped pair of Jordan 12s, a lot of the kicks that I want are still chilling on a retail shelf. Don’t worry, they’ll all be mine (and yours), when the price is right.

Nike Kyrie 2 Kyrie-oke

Nike
Nike

Current Price: $119.99
Price I Would Pay: $79.99

What the shoe and the nickname have to do with each other is still a mystery to this day, but I have to admit that my love for the Kyrie-oke commercial that came along with it supersedes any sneaker logic. At $120, it’s still in the impulse buy territory, but with plenty of pairs still sitting in stores, I can wait a few months.

adidas D Rose 6 Boost

adidas

Current Price: $139.99
Price I Would Pay: $59.99

The adidas D Rose 6 Boost might be one of the best signature shoes of this NBA season, but you wouldn’t know it because any luster that was left from Rose’s career is now gone. It’ll be interesting to see how adidas moves forward with their former top star, but for those of us who love the look of the D Rose 6 Boost, it’s only a matter of time before they end up in the same price range as the Rose 5 Boost, which was another great design from the adidas team.

Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 ULTRA FLYKNIT 2
Titolo

Current Price: $159.99
Price I Would Pay: $119.99

The Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit sounded like a disaster from the moment it was first announced, but to our surprise, the shoe was lightweight, comfortable and kinda awesome. Needless to say, Nike managed to breathe new life into one of their most iconic silhouettes yet again. But because they are Air Force 1s and for one reason or another, that name doesn’t mean as much to the sneaker community at large as it used to. Bad for the brand possibly, but great for me who wants to cop the multicolor but will now wait for the inevitable price drop.

Under Armour Curry Two Low Oakland A’s

Under Armour
Under Armour

Current Price: $119.99
Price I Would Pay: $79.99

I love this colorway of the Curry Two not because it reminds me of the baseball team, but because it’s reminiscent of a Masters Green Jacket. If Jordan Spieth had been rocking a golf version of these, the hype for these would have been crazy. I guess it’s a good thing Jordan didn’t wear them after all or I wouldn’t be happy and content to just wait for these to drop in price.

STAMPD LA x Puma R698

puma stampd 1
Puma

Current Price: $89.99
Price I Would Pay: $49.99

People are sleeping on these STAMPD collabs with Puma when their effort and execution is on par with some of the bigger branded collabs out there and they do it without any of the fancy gimmicks and materials. It’s all about producing high-quality kicks that look good with just about anything you wear and this Puma R698 fits that bill.

Air Jordan XX9 Low

Nike
Nike

Current Price: $149.99
Price I Would Pay: $99.99

With the 30 already available, the 29 Low is starting to slowly climb down the price ladder and that’s great for those of us who love and rave about the performance of the 29 proper to this day. The debut colorway is still the best pair out there (sorry, Jimmy Butler), so once it starts hitting double digits, I’m all in.

adidas adiZero Prime Boost

adidas
adidas

Current Price: $199.99
Price I Would Pay: $99.99

It’s Primeknit, it’s Boost, and it’s got zero Kanye-related hype/baggage. What’s not to love other than the $200 price tag? I know the mulitcolor is not easy to cop, but any of the tonal ones would be fine.

Air Jordan 9 Retro Golf

Nike
Nike

Current Price: $224.99
Price I Would Pay: $129.99

Oops, guess people aren’t copping every pair of Jordan retro golf shoes after all. Personally, the Air Jordan 9 looks better as a golf shoe than the Air Jordan 6, so I’ll be happy to purchase these once they hit a lower price point.

Nike LeBron 13 Low

Nike
Nike

Current Price: $149.99
Price: $99.99

For the past few years now, the Nike LeBron signature line has seen some of its best releases when they went low (think the Nike LeBron 11 Low Multicolor, the Nike LeBron 12 LeBronold Palmer and others), and it looks like the 13 Low will continue that rather odd tradition. The first release is a solid white and silver pair that will be great for the summer months, especially when they drop in price.

Asics Gel Lyte III Strawberries and Cream

Asics
Asics

Current Price: $129.99
Price I Would Pay: $59.99

Yeah, sure, why not?

Air Jordan 4 Dunk From Above

Current Price: $189.99
Price I Would Pay: $129.99

Didn’t sell out which wasn’t unexpected, now my wait for these to drop to a more reasonable price begins. These are the perfect pair to buy and stash away for a year or two. These will go unappreciated for a while, but when the time comes, everyone will come out of the woodwork and call them an underrated gem.

Concepts x New Balance 998 Boston

Titolo
Titolo

Current Price: $219.99
Price I Would Pay: $159.99

While many would argue that the NYC colorway is better (and I’m in that camp), the Boston colorway of Concepts’ latest collab is no slouch. Plus, the packaging is so awesome that half of the appeal for me is the box. Ok, most of the appeal for me is the box. I like boxes.

Nike Air Tech Challenge 2 Black/White

Nike
Nike

Current Price: $109.99
Price I Would Pay: $59.99

Forget your Cyber Mondays, this Air Tech Challenge 2 is the way to go if you’re looking for a solid pair in a classic look. Thankfully Nike Sporstwear hasn’t stopped dropping new colorways of the Challenge even though the hype for them is all but gone. Let this be our new Air Force 1, Nike.

Air Jordan 30 Black Cat

Nike
Nike

Current Price: $199.99
Price I Would Pay: $149.99

If you have to own a pair of the Air Jordan 30 and your name isn’t Russell Westbrook, this is the one to have. The tonal look suits the shoe’s woven design perfectly; the more contrast, the worse it looks. Between this and the Cosmos colorway, the Air Jordan 30 proves it can look like a banger for off the court as well.

Nike Kobe 11 Bruce Lee

Nike
Nike

Current Price: $199.99
Price I Would Pay: $129.99

I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I will probably never own a pair of the Nike Zoom Kobe 5 Bruce Lee so now I can look for alternatives. There have been a handful of options through the years both at retail and on NIKEiD, but this colorway of the Nike Kobe 11 is the closest yet to the original and with zero hype for them thanks to all of the attention being paid to the Black Mamba Pack, I can just patiently wait for these to drop to a more friendly number.
