Seven months into the year and we are already introduced to new trends, designers, and sneakers. In today’s society, the sneaker culture can feel like a sophisticated club. Buying a pair of kicks is no longer a simple task. There’s so much involved in buying a pair of the right sneakers—for starters, you have to research the shoe; blogs, YouTube or articles, have your calendars marked for the release date, know which stores are selling them, and then try to reserve a hot pair in your size.

They are essentially focused and always looking for the next big thing, luckily I have the list of the Best Sneakers of 2017 (so far) just for you.
