Sole Shots: December 31, 2010

words_Brandon Richard

With just a few hours left until we celebrate the new year , I thought it’d be appropriate to use this week’s Sole Shots to salute some of the most memorable releases from 2010. The year was loaded with quality drops, particularly during the holiday season when there was seemingly a must-have every weekend. The greatest thing that 2010 left us with is a platform for an incredible 2011. There are more signature shoes due out that we’ve seen in years. More brands are emerging on the scene, including some based in China that are looking to make a big stateside impact. To top it off, so many big retro releases are rumored to be making a return. Have a safe and wonderful New Year’s Day and Happy 2011!

Double-click the photos below for a larger look and make sure you check back next week, when Sole Shots will showcase the signature sneakers of a certain Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard.
