This week proved the creative value of sneaker collaborations and how they inspire the community that rocks them. This year is the 25th Anniversary of ASICS’ Gel Lyte III resulting in some of the best collaborations we’ve ever seen on that shoe. A few of them showed up on this list, and rightfully so. CNCPTS collaborations featured heavily this week, with people taking those pairs to heart. The number one spot went to one of the most anticipated collaborative efforts of all time, which needs no more introduction than that.

This weekly list is a great way to remember that sneaker collecting, despite the drama and anxiety it induces, can be about something fun.

If you didn’t make it this time: there’s always next week. Just don't forget to tag your shots with the hashtag #ComplexKicks and follow @ComplexSneakers on Instagram.
