The world of sneaker collaborations is dominated by blockbuster releases these days, most of which steal much of the spotlight from the little guys. While some see that as an injustice to the numerous collabs that are forced to fly under the radar, it depends on how you look at it. The glass half full side of us sees a handsome handful of collaboration silhouettes that you won’t be sharing with the crowds.

In celebration of the designs which didn’t make the front page and weren’t spotted on Travis Scott, we teamed up with Footshop to round up 10 of our favorite underrated collab sneakers of recent times.

From luxury connections like Pyer Moss and Craig Green to Jonah Hill and even Assassin’s Creed (really), keep scrolling for some of the best collaborations that you missed.

Scroll down to shop some of the most underrated collab sneakers.

Reebok x XIMONLEE

Buy at Footshop

Earlier this year Reebok teamed up with Berlin and Shanghai-based label XIMONLEE to produce this futuristic sock runner. Our favorite part isn't the conceptual silhouette but the spot-on color palette.

Converse x Feng Chen Wang

Converse's classic Chuck Taylor 70 gets a very unorthodox update at the hands of Feng Chen Wang. In a series of collaborative efforts between the two brands, this model stands out thanks to its 2-in-1 construction.

adidas Originals by 032c

Berlin thinktank 032c has left a mark on multiple scenes, from editorial through to sneaker collabs. This joint work takes the Campus as its base and retains the classic aesthetic with a simple contrast logo to the heel tab.

Reebok x Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Buy at Footshop

There have been a number of successful gaming-sneaker crossovers over the years but this might be our favorite. To celebrate the release of the new Assassin's Creed Valhalla game, Reebok has given the classic Club C Revenge silhouette a Viking-heavy reup.

OG Classic Slip-On

$91

Vans x WTAPS

Buy at Footshop

WTAPS has worked alongside Vans for several seasons but the pair's most recent drop could be the cleanest product yet. This pair of Vans OG Classic Slip-Ons features an off-white suede upper and black sole unit outlined by the WTAPS text logo.

Converse x GOLF le FLEUR* Gianno OX

Gianno OX

Gianno OX

$137

Converse x GOLF le FLEUR*

Buy at Footshop

Tyler, the Creator's GOLF le FLEUR* label might be used to a bit more hype when it comes to its Converse collaborations, but the Gianno OX is, in our book, criminally underrated. This skate shoe-esque model speaks to the '90s skater.

adidas x Craig Green Rivalry Polta AKH

The Rivalry silhouette acts as the platform for one of Craig Green's latest collaborative efforts with adidas. This immaculate rendition features a shiny, coated upper and a retro-tinged, off-white sole unit.

Reebok by Pyer Moss

Kerby Jean-Raymond, founder and designer at Pyer Moss, was recently appointed as the global Creative Director of Reebok, so his collaborations with the brand must have left a mark on more than just us.
