When I look back and reflect on the past year in Sneaker Culture, I’m amazed by the number of solid releases that hit shelves all across the globe.  From the beginning of the year with drops such as the KITH X adidas Tubular Doom, the raffle for the rerelease of the Nike Air Mag and the strong emergence of adidas Boost technology, this year has been one for the records.  In the past two months alone, reputable brands such as XLARGE, BAPE, KITH and Sneakers76 have released amazing products.   The aspect of sneaker culture that intrigues me the most is the fact that aside from the hype, everyone has their own top lists when it comes to sneakers.  Coincidentally, the culture brings people together from various walks of life…spanning the globe!

Social media plays a large role in this global connection of enthusiasts. Whether FaceBrook groups, Twitter feeds or Instagram Stories, we are now intertwined like never before.  With that said, for the Top Releases of 2016, I’ve given the honor to the one and only Fabrice le Goff, also known as @bisso97120 on IG.  With a strong following, Fabrice is the founder of the popular page @asics_addict and also manages @trocsneakers and @diadoradaily.  I present to you the Top 16 Releases of 2016 with Fabrice(check out the Top 5 below and find all 16 in the featured slider above):
