Top 100 Shoes Trends in December

From History-Marking Limited Runners to Sneaker Culture Books

— December 9, 2019 — Fashion
There is a wide range of concepts that go into the list of December 2019 shoe trends as the year comes closer to the end. Some brands experiment with new ways of construction and others explore new ways of design by creating progressive silhouettes.

One of the most notable shoe trends is the collaboration between adidas and the Toronto Raptors. The duo takes the AM4 as the base foundation and adorns the design with motifs of the World Champ to celebrate the recent NBA championship. The sneaker features emblems that nod to the historic win, Canada, and Toronto specifically. Another great shoe trend this month actually arrives in the form of a book. The Art of Sneakers: Volume One by Ivan Dudynsky is packed with beautiful works of sneaker culture, showcasing its growth and prominent presence in the industries of music, fashion, art, and sports.
