Best of 2011: Concepts x New Balance 999 "Kennedy" is the #8 Sneaker of the Year

Video Loading...

It's that time of year again where we get the biggest sneaker heavyweights around one table to discuss the best sneakers of 2011. The roundtable is assembled of ATF front man DJ Clark Kent, Nice Kicks' founder Matt Halfhill, Complex sneaker editor Russ Bengtson and Complex strategist and editor Joe La Puma, and Kith's very own Ronnie Fieg. As mentioned previously, we'll be dropping two videos daily this week, all leading up to the #1 Sneaker of 2011.

Frank the Butcher could have easily had two collaborations in this year's top 10, but having one is a nice consolation prize. Sneakerheads around the country scrambled to get their hands on these NB 999s, and with the nautical-inspired upper, these were perfect for the Concepts store in Boston.
