Released: February

If you refer to these as "ninja shoes," then you're not the only one. The Qasa Racer showed that Y-3 and adidas weren't playing around this year with their plans to dominate the high-end market. Of course, Kanye wore the Qasa Racer while he looked miserable at a youth basketball game, but the sneaker was much more than a Kanye-cosigned model. It was an A+ runner with a design that separated itself from other silhouettes that payed homage to running's history. It was the future of running (or, at least what it could look like, if we were all super-stylish athletes)
