Sneaker Spotlight: Sneakerholic’s Top Ten Summer Kicks

We are near the end of August as well as the end of Summer (for many of us). The warm months of the year is a time when we can expect a variety of models to be rocked with no worries about rain or snow. So as we transition into a time when #sneakerholics may have to worry about the weather conditions, we look back at some of the favorite Summer choices. We’ve been asking enthusiasts on Twitter what their favorite Summer models were. From the responses we got these were the top 10 choices in no particular order.

Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Bonsai”

The third pair of sneakers in a series of Hemp inspired footwear, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Bonsai” brought the truest sense of color combination with subject matter.
