When WWD asked sneaker influencers to cite the most coveted sneaker drops of 2018, the results were varied. Over in Los Angeles, Ray Polanco Jr. is looking forward to the Vans OTW Repeat Sticker Pack, while Mike “Upscale Vandal” Camargo, who is based in New York, has his sights set on the Puma Venom Cell, a retro shoe he saw during his recent trip to Germany. Landy — he goes by one name — from Tokyo noted the upcoming Fear of God x Nike collaboration, and Rashed Belhasa, the teenager from Dubai with an overwhelming sneaker collection, is thinking about the second iteration of the Roc-A-fella Nike Air Force 1s. DeeDee Negron in New York and Sanne Poeze in Amsterdam are both interested in more colorways from the Nike Air Jordan 1 women’s satin collection, and Selma Kaci Sebbagh in Paris is trying to acquire the Nike ACG Mowabb x Comme des Garçons shoes. But the top favorites were clear and indicated that Virgil Abloh and Kanye West are still generating the most excitement in the market.
