Top 70 Sneaker Trends in October

From Shark and Python Basketball Shoes to Drake-Made Sandals

— October 30, 2016 — Fashion
With the warmer days dwindling, many brands included in this cluster of October 2016 sneaker concepts are offering up footwear that will keep its wearer warm and stylish simultaneously.

In an effort to bring back the 90s, Reebok and Joyrich joined to adapt the 'Insta Pump Fury' -- a statement-making model that the pair imbued with an electric blue colorway that is accented with hints of white. What's most unique about it is the realm between sandal and sneaker that it straddles -- as Reebok and Joyrich incorporate an open-toed upper with a well-gripped athletic sole.

With these October 2016 sneaker concepts circulating the time of Halloween, brands like Nike decided to drop a few styles that make use of the holiday's theme. One of these includes the jack-o'-lantern Foamposites -- which have an eerie pumpkin face featured on the heels.
