–The 2014 Results have now been published. You can find them all here


The HS Crowns are a new annual awards series celebrating the very best in streetwear and street culture. Each shortlist has been carefully compiled by the Highsnobiety editorial team, with the final results left up to you, the reader.

How do you celebrate every single amazing sneaker released across an entire year? Simple answer: you don’t. The Best Sneaker award is a careful selection of the shoes we thought were the most popular, the most successful, and the most beautiful examples of footwear design released this year. We’ve taken special care to cover as many bases as possible, but there are always going to be more great sneakers than there is space to do them justice. Feel free to shout out your personal favorites in the comments box below.

Vote for your favorite below for your chance to win a brand new iPhone 6 or iPad Air 2. Then head to our main awards page to cast your vote in the other categories.
