Maybe you were waiting for it, maybe you weren't—either way, Sneaker Of The Year is back baby.

Australia’s number one sneaker newsletter The Weekly Drop has combined forces with eBay AU to present a fitting end to a mammoth year of sneaker releases. From today, sneakerheads from across Australia will be invited to vote for their sneaker of the year, as well as the top new silhouette. Anyone who registers and submits their vote will be entered into the draw to win prizes, including one of ten $1,000 sneaker shopping vouchers courtesy of eBay, and one of fifteen Crep Protect 6-pack Ultimate Sneaker Storage crates.

The world of sneakers continues to grow bigger each year. Sneaker resellers are out here making a career out of copping and flipping, sneaker customisers are working with the biggest names in entertainment for one-off specialties, and even sneaker cleaners are big business. In a year when sneakers were making headlines throughout the year and releases became bigger and better than ever, it’s only right we look to our audience to determine which sneaker reigned supreme in 2023.

Be quick, voting closes on the 15th of December
