Top 15 Sneaker Releases of 2018

Let's start this off right, Happy New Year! We hope this year is better than the last and you don't miss out on any sneaker drops. 2018 was full of way too many Ls.

For those that don't know, it's been a year since our website officially re-launched and we just wanted to say a massive thank you to every single one of you who has stuck around, found us recently or stumbled across us for the first time today. Any and every like, comment, share or follow is appreciated!

Sit back grab a snack & let's get to it.
