As the new year begins, optimism is high. The sense of refreshing positivity is embodied by the adage “new year, new me”. Here at Highsnobiety, though, we show our optimism with a slightly different motto: new year, new sneaks. Luckily, we found out that London-based retailer Browns also abides by this concept, so we linked up to round up 10 pairs of sneakers for 2022.

Ranging from retro-look adidas and New Balance styles to all-out luxury from names like Margiela, Versace, and McQueen, this roundup is proof that 2022 will be a nicely varied year of footwear. With that variation in style comes a variation in price tags, too. Whether you’re looking to invest in a pair or you’d rather go for a quick cop on something for the everyday, stay tuned.
