Our favorite pick of the collection is the Air Jordan 2012 (above) that features printed insoles to inspire with mantras “Fly Around” and “Fly Through” celebrating the 30 year anniversary of the Air Jordan. The bootie insole (below) is detachable, same for the Kobe VII System Supreme, offering a new level of customizable comfort in performance sneakers. We especially appreciate the bare bones silhouette the Nike Flywire has to offer and hope to see more bootie-inspired shapes this year. -Calvy Click
