Sneakerpedia Weekend Sneaker Showcase

One of the greatest things about sneakers is that it brings all of us together–from all different walks of life. Whether you are in a 9-5 office job, working in the local mall at sneaker shop, or a stay at home mom taking care of the next generation of sneaker enthusiasts, what is on our feet connects us all.

Some of us may be lucky enough to wear our favorite kicks any day of the week, but others might only get the chance to do so on the weekends, while we kick back and unwind from a busy work week. With that in mind, we asked our twitter followers to share with us the sneakers they wore over the lastcouple of days. The response was so fantastic we had to narrow down our choices. It was great to see a wide variety of brands, models and colorways, ranging from general releases all the way to limited editions and even some customized sneakers.

If by chance you didn’t make it this week, be sure to follow @Sneakerpedia on Twitter to join in the fun, and hopefully you’ll be featured in next week’s blog post!
