The Newrosis 2012 Sneaker of the Year

I was gonna do a whole big list, but I wrote like 20 posts this year so I'm pretty sure you can see all the shoes I liked without much effort, even by internet standards.

Anyway, without further ado, the Nike Air Force 1 Year of the Dragon II. With the venerable cut of the AF1, you get a classic shape that is, at this point, up there with the Shell-toe and Chucks in the pantheon of sneaker immortality. What this model adds is all about the details. The colorway is reminiscent of a Korean or Chinese Buddhist temple, as is the pattern on the insole and the dragon on the tongue. It is, in my opinion, a 9.9/10. Selling on Ebay right at this very moment for about $200.
