The year is just beginning, but sneaker manufacturers are busy with new models, new colors and special editions of great beauty.
Air Force 1 Louis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh
No suspense, they will be almost impossible to find, but the Air Force 1s designed by the late Virgil Abloh for LV will be the must have of 2022. A total of 200 pairs are auctioned until February 8 for charity (price of start: 2,000 dollars but most sizes already reach 20,000 greenbacks), on Sotheby’s website. Good luck to all.

PJ Tucker x Converse Pro Leather Hi «Out Tha Mud»
NBA player PJ Tucker is a renowned sneakerhead, with a strong fondness for Jordans and Nikes in general. But this year, he offers himself a very nice collab with Converse, which resulted in this Pro Leather Hi model, a great classic of the 1970s, subtitled “Out tha mud” (Out of the mud, in French). The vintage-looking model pays homage to the humble origins of Tucker, who had to fight since his childhood in North Carolina to earn his place on the court.
