Keeping it casual is almost synonymous with stay with the classics and keeping it timeless. This year, we saw a few shoes make comebacks that had been released years ago, so without further adieu, we bring to you our top five of 2012.
The 574 silhouette of New Balance is, without a doubt, the most popular of their offerings, and New Balance switched things up this time with a nylon mesh, backpack-like upper. They incorporated some suede for a feel that we’re used to, and it made for another great rendition that we had to add to out “best of 2012” list.
The adidas Samoa was model that didn’t have as much success and popularity originally, as it has received upon re-release, so due to popular demand, this was one of the best of 2012. adidas brought the 80’s back with this one for a truly timeless look and feel.
This is one that comes in waves and doesn’t quite ever stay away. The adidas Superstar needed no formal introduction when it hits the shelves again this year giving wearers a truly classic shoe with timeless style.
For the best casual shoe that 2012 had to offer, we give the title to the Nike Air Force 1. Although the Air Force 1 doesn’t ever really go all the way away, it shot back up to the top of everyone’s coveted list, introducing new colors and materials to keep things fresh.
2012 was a good year for casual kicks, and you can almost expect 2013 to show up and do the same. Another thing you can expect is that FinishLine.com will be the place where you can stop on top of the best casual shoes.
