New Balance is at their best when the 999 is the selected silhouette, and this time around they’ve found a mellow colorway to compliment its complex build. This time, we find a tan suede model given hits teal on the heel for a classic color combination. The look is wrapped up with a grey outsole that only helps bring the focus back to its upper.

When the Nike Vandal High Supreme is one the first models you see in the new year, you know it’s gonna be a good year. This pair has a heaping helping blue orbit satiny fabric piled on top its white midsole. White leather accents give a bit textural contrast to what may be the snazziest shoe 2018 thus far.

If you’re looking for a classic kick to ring in the new year with, the adidas Forum Lo is not only back but it’s also available in a pretty wide variety colors. This set is drenched in leather with snakeskin detailing on the heel and mid paneling.
