How do you explain the success of some pairs of sneakers than others? Several models have managed to arouse a strong emotional attachment and have managed to keep the first place for many years. Among them, we find of course the champion brand of all category: the Air Jordan. This model represents the ultimate goal of any designer in the world of sneakers : to create the perfect mix between a legendary name, a unique logo and a pair with a strong symbolic dimension. Recently brought back to the forefront with the documentary The Last Dance, which tells the story of Michael Jordan, the Jumpman brand has seen sales of its legendary Air Jordan 1 collection soar. The brand is also enjoying the affection of the urban culture, sports and hip-hop world with, for example, the Houston rapper Travis Scott and his Air Jordan 1 Retro High Travis Scott "Cactus Jack". This collaboration has generated a huge buzz thanks to the multiple teasing actions carried out on social networks.
When discussing the relationship between communication, teasing and sneakers, it is hard to miss the phenomenon of Kanye West and the three-strips brand. A real fashion phenomenon, the Yeezy is interacting in a very intelligent way with its environment: presentation of the Yeezy 950 at Kanye West's show at Madison Square Garden, shops taken over by the model's fans, limited releases, etc. On the social networking front, Kanye West does not hesitate to use his own Instagram account or that of his wife Kim Kardashian to tease and generate excessive hype. Proudly worn on Instagram by numerous celebrities such as Paul Pogba, Karim Benzema, Travis Scott or Chris Brown, the Yeezy are a reference for fans of sneakers. Adidas is also inspired by its environment, offering new collaborations with luxury brands such as Chanel or Prada and ambassadors such as Pharrel Williams and Kanye West.
True market leader of the sneakers, Nike knows how to show a lot of creativity and imagination when it comes to offering variations of its flagship models. If there is a collaboration to remember, it is the one between Nike and Off-White. The two giants of streetwear are associated on all the main models of Nike: Nike Dunk Low, Nike Blazer, Nike Air Max, Nike Air Force 1, Nike Vapormax... What a way to revive the flame of some models. Add to that a new collaboration with Travis Scott and his Dunk Low and you get a perfect recipe to bring visibility to a collection like the Nike Skateboardingwhich was one of the biggest heat of the year 2020. Nike is a brand that has managed to surprise us year after year with models sometimes older than 30 years, and this for the greatest pleasure of fans of the firm of Beaverton!
Available in many colors, models and collaborations, the Jordan Brand knows how to renew itself and surround itself with the best. On the agenda? Mythical collaborations with Virgil Abloh and Off-White around the Air Jordan 1 Retro High Off-White Chicago The Ten, editions in collaboration with luxury brands such as Dior or references to events such as the All Star Game in the U.S. and the Quai 54 in France. The brand is perfectly aware of its environment and does not hesitate to go off the beaten track by joining forces with the world of soccer, for example, through its collaboration with the Paris Saint Germain football team. A great success that allowed fans of both sports to discover their respective worlds!
Created in 1982 by Bruce Kilgore, the Air Force 1 The Nike AIR sneaker has endured through the ages as Nike's most iconic silhouette. Featuring the Nike AIR cushioning system at its inception, the pair was extremely popular with the best basketball players of the day. Since then, the pair has come in a wide variety of models, most recently the Shadow and Drop Type. But the strength of the model lies in its ability to innovate through its colours and thus to always remain at the heart of the trends.
Kanye West and Adidas also offer a great diversity of products through the different models of Yeezys, led by the Yeezy 350 V2, which features a Primeknit base with a sole equipped with the Boost technology edited by the three-strips brand. The pair is then reinvented through its different colours, Zebra, Triple White Israfil, Zyon, Carbon, but also by the addition, on certain models, of details such as the aspect Reflective, the inscriptions " SPLY - 350 " or a drawstring appearing on the heel tab.

Brands such as Nike, Adidas, Jordan or even Converse are constantly looking for new editions to offer to satisfy their respective fans.

We can take the example of Converse on the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star 70s Off-White or Jordan with the Air Jordan 1 Mid Fearless Maison Château Rouge! But the situation is a win-win: luxury brands that attack the sneaker market bring an additional clientele and democratize a new form of luxury closer to urban values.
