In 2014, it seemed like there were multiple must-have drops every weekend. As sneaker culture has more than gradually grown from niche culture to mass culture, 2014 confirmed it’s rapid rise in popularity as lines formed and servers crashed Saturday after Saturday.

While far more than 50 great sneakers launched in 2014 (heck, far more than 50 great collabs launched), we picked the pairs that stood out as most memorable to us. Read our picks in the following pages and share your own in the comment section. Happy New Year!

50. miadidas ZX Flux

There were few better ways to flex our creative muscles in 2014 than tinkering with the mi adidas ZX Flux app. Variations of this shoe boldly defied design limitations while equally breaking new ground in terms of what can be accomplished on a sneaker canvas. A win for adidas both aesthetically and technically.

49. Nike Air Max Lunar90 “Moon Landing”

If you never saw them in person, held a pair in your hand, or put them on your feet, the greatness of the “Moon Landing” Air Max Lunar90 may be lost on you. That, however, doesn’t make this shoe any less great. Firstly, the concept is strong. Most that deal in the solar system and sneakers typically are. But it’s the execution on this pair that positions it above many of its counterparts.
