While it's nice to stock up on kicks that are already considered classics, it's also healthy to pick up some current models that have staying power. Look back to what worked in the past, and lay that equation onto what's on shelves now. What are designers turning out that will have kids lining up to cop retros of 30 years down the road? Hard to say, but the Nike Free Run+ 2 should damn well be one. And it's not alone.
