Top 75 Sports Trends in March

From Electrified Shock Workouts to Bubblegum Performance Sneakers

— March 11, 2018 — Lifestyle
Of all the months of the year, March is the only one that has an entire sporting event named after it, and the March 2018 sports trends will always be indebted to that classic, whether they're directly related or not. The event in question is, of course, March Madness, and the tournament is perhaps as good a reason as any to abandon all responsibilities and enjoy the thrilling upsets, jaw-dropping plays, and unpaid labor on display in college athletics.

Basketball is, in fact, one of the sports that's most featured in the March 2018 sports trends, though at the professional level. The Y-3 JH Boost performance shoe was recently released, and with it came a fashion line inspired by James Harden, the star of the first place Houston Rockets and the current front runner for the MVP award.
