Part 2 of NiceKicks’ Top 50 Sneakers of 2011 countdown leads up to the most hyped, paid, and fought for sneakers to release in the last year.

Watch Part 1 if you haven’t yet, because NiceKicks did a great job of leading up to the best sneaker releases of the year. You’ll notice how they talk about certain fads in sneakers this year, like the lowkey, lowtop release trend that swept through the basketball/casual sneaker front with shoes from people likeKevin Durant, Kobe, and LeBron. As a lowtop fan, this made me happy to see.

The two pairs you expect to see top the list, but I think my favorite drop this year is Kevin Durant’s “Weatherman” colorway, and I agree with KD that the colorway (below) is nicer than the “Nerf”s. But with the “Nerf” KDIVS colorway taking over the custom shoes circle hot on the heels of the “Southbeach” phenomenon, there is a lot to be excited about leading into Durant’s 2012 releases.

Extra points for using the illest of Cool Kids beats.

I’m not upset about the pictures of the shoes getting out.

I’m upset that the chick said “these are the shoes my friend made,” when I have never met her in my life and if she was even a direct friend on fb she would have seen my request not to put the pics out.

I am ok with the pics being out. I am NOT ok with the quote she took out of context. I was comparing the black laces to the orange ones, not complaining about Wilson as a client.

Some of these internet girls man…

World Series Winner Spikes - Jacob Patterson
(commissioned by Brian “Fear the Beard” Wilson)
I painted these custom spikes for Brian Wilson of the San Francisco Giants to wear in the 2011 All Star Game in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday!
There’s a lot of subtle messages in them, which you can see here, along with more pics of them, but I will post a full blog post the day of the game.
Love,

I am painting some custom shoes for Brian Wilson to wear in the 2011 All Star Game in Phoenix on Tuesday.

They’re gunna be pretty simple but I am really hoping people will like them! I love Brian Wilson, and I think he is a great thing for baseball. He reminds me a lot of another of my favorite superstars to play for San Francisco, T.O.

Anyway, the game is on Tuesday at 5pm, so watch for my shoes! There will be a few jokes in there for you Beard Fearing Fans!
