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.

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'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.

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.

Vans x WTAPS

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*

Buy at Foot Shop

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.
