Retro Representative  

2012 was one of the strongest years in recent memory in terms of new releases but the retro game still creates the strongest hype. Some newbs might be happy with the same kicks coming out in a cycle of five years but it would be in every sneaker company's best interest to have someone really stalking Twitter and comment sections to see what the consumer wants and how they want it. We were glad to see the 180s back but minus the pump took away from the shoe a little. There's still a handful of '80s and '90s kicks we have patiently waited for over two decades — we need a rep who is there for the people.
