2. Nike Air Yeezy II 

Released: June 9th 

No shoe gained as much attention from national media as the Air Yeezy IIs and after so much anticipation the release went off without too many issues — minus people crying over their NikeStore cart. You can make the argument that if this wasn't Kanye's sneaker no one would care... and you're dead wrong. The design and quality is unlike anything else and even with all the outlandish designs and colorways hitting these days, these would have still stood out.
