The Year In Review: Eastbay’s Top Launches Of 2016

The Year In Review: Eastbay’s Top Launches Of 2016

At Eastbay, we pride ourselves on offering the hottest shoes from the best brands. We are your go-to destination for all the biggest releases. As 2016 comes to a close, let’s look back at the shoes that took the sneaker world by storm.

adidas Originals Yeezys

12-31-16_yeezy3_660x636

This year’s Yeezy season was hotter than ever. We restocked the popular ‘Pirate Black’ colorway of the Boost 350. Later, Kayne West and adidas shocked us with the release of their 350 Boost V2 in the Beluga colorway, followed by the release of not one, not two, but three V2s at one time! And we can’t forget about the 750 Boost in the light brown colorway either. That wasn’t all — one of the biggest hits for this Yeezy season was the Boost 350 Cleat and the black/white V2s. With instant sellouts and surprise releases, the Yeezy made 2016 a year to remember for all of us at Eastbay.

adidas Originals NMD Runner

eb-hp-spotlight-mobile-061016-nmd-640x350-updated-1

One of adidas Originals’ biggest hits this year was the release of their NMD Runner. Every colorway we dropped sold out almost instantly. Why was this shoe such a big deal? It was new and unlike anything we’d seen before. The striking combination of shapes, angles, and materials redefined the shoe game as we know it. Toward the end of 2016 we saw some updates to the NMD with the addition of fabrics, cages, and more. Will it be just as hot next year? I guess we’ll have to wait and see what adidas Originals has up their sleeve.

adidas Ultra Boost

eb-social-120216-ultraboost-1024x512-jpg

One of the hottest kicks on the planet in 2015 carried over to 2016 and shows no signs of slowing down. The adidas Ultra Boost craze has reached a whole new level this year. The minimalist look and undeniable comfort give this shoe the effortless cool factor that everyone craves. And just when we thought they couldn’t get any better, adidas brought us the first colored Boost in its Uncaged models, making it an obvious choice for our top launch list. We saw red and black Boosts at the end of this year, unlocking so many opportunities for 2017.

Jordan Retro 11 – ‘Space Jam’  

eb-hp-spotlight-mobile-121016-jordanretro11-640x350_2

The most anticipated Jordan Retro 11 dropped this year in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the movie “Space Jam.” Fans everywhere remember how Michael Jordan wore this shoe as he defeated one of his toughest opponents: the Monstars. This sneaker is considered one of the greatest Jordans ever, partly because of its connection to the film and because of its out-of-this-world look. Dedicated Jordan fans were able to get this hot sneaker and all of the Jordan Space Jam hookups, right here at Eastbay.

Jordan Retro 12 – ‘French Blue’

eb-hp-spotlight-mobile-040116-retro12-640x350-1

The Retro 12 hit big this year with two major releases. Jordan lovers waited a decade for the release of the AJ 12 ‘French Blue’ and they finally got it. The silhouette, comprised of white tumbled leather and French Blue overlays, had everyone swooning, making a perfect pick for our 2016 list.

Jordan Retro 12 – ‘Flu game’

eb-hp-spotlight-mobile-052616-retro12-640x350-1

Another Retro 12 dropped this year that brought back all of the nostalgia for Jordan fans. Everyone remembers the playoff series game when MJ put up 38 points, grabbed seven boards, and dished out five assists, all while sick with the flu. These shoes brought back that memory of MJ’s will to win and sealed this sneaker’s spot in our top launches of the year.

Jordan Retro 1 OG – ‘Banned’

12-31-16_jordanaj1highog_660x385

The ‘Banned’ AJ 1 originally stormed onto the scene during Michael Jordan’s rookie season and returned this year, making our list of top launches. The black-and-red color scheme violated a league policy, resulting in a $5,000 fine each time MJ stepped onto the court in the sneakers. Like Michael Jordan himself, the ‘Banned’ AJ 1 defied expectations and norms making it an obvious choice for our top launches of 2016.

Jordan Retro 3 – ‘True Blue’

eb-instagram-112516-jordanretro3_opt2-660x660_2

Rounding out our top launches of 2016 is the Jordan Retro 3 ‘True Blue.’ This sneaker became famous when MJ returned to the NBA to join the Washington Wizards. This highly-anticipated launch dropped on Black Friday after not being available since 2011. The all-white leather upper with cement grey detailing with blue and red accents complete its classic look Jordan fans crave.

Well there you have it — our top launches of 2016! If you hadn’t noticed, our list was dominated by two brands: Jordan and adidas. Will next year be the same? Can we expect more from Yeezy? What will Jordan be retroing next? Stay tuned in 2017 by checking our release calendar and our blog for the latest and greatest launches.

Happy New Year!
