By 2025, sneakers are projected to be a $95.14 billion dollar industry, which is nearly double the $55 billion valuation from 2016. It is safe to say that sneakers rule the world, and with sportswear giants like Nike, adidas, Reebok and more at the forefront, trainers are dominating the market ranging from simple classics to luxury and covetable creps.
Not only have brands taken the sporty shoes and made them trendy, labels like Off-White™, COMME des GARÇONS and more have tapped into the market through sought after, limited-edition collaborations that resell for hundreds of dollars. In 2016 the reselling industry made an estimated $1 billion in sales, and according to NPD’s last study of the global market, it could be as high as $3 billion USD today.
The power of collaborations is beyond what we could have ever imagined, which is why we’ve rounded up some of the best sneaker collaborations that have launched in 2019. Ranging from Nike’s covetable Martine Rose Air Monarch, Sacai LDV Waffle Racers, COMME des GARÇONS Shox and Off-White™ Terra Kigers, to Converse’s JW Anderson trainers, we’ve compiled them all.
