What were your favorite shoes that came out in 2013? We asked all of our Sneak Geeks the same question. Based off each of their rankings, Finish Line has equated an official Best Shoes of 2013 countdown. Stay tuned throughout the month of December as we get closer to the #1 spot.

#4 – Nike FlyKnit Racer “Multi-Color”

“The Multicolored HTM Flyknits were probably the most sought after shoe of 2012, so a general release multi-color Racer was a no-brainer for Nike. These hold their own sitting side by side with the HTMs, and that says a lot.”  – @AndyOliverWPG 

“One of the first times a lot of hysteria was caused over an actual Nike performance running shoe. Multi-colored pattern was amazing for the summer and every shoes pattern was different, which made the shoes truly unique.”@EricMatenaer

#5 – Concepts x New Balance 998 “C-Note”

“Cncpts always pushes out interesting concepts…hence the name. The C-Note is a great mix of subtle color-blocking with a great story.”@DeadstockNYC

“Safe to say Concepts killed it again with their new balance collab this year. Best New Balance to drop in 2013.”@EricMatenaer

 #6 – Nike Tech Challenge II “US Open”

“The Air Tech Challenge II is one of my favorite models of all time, and I’ve been waiting anxiously for Nike to show them some love. The US Open version is incredible. The leather is shockingly good, and every detail rings true from the changes in leather texture, to the 3M. Not to mention the fact that this model have been dying for a dark makeup since they launched! More please.” – @AndyOliverWPG

“In 2013, Nike’s premiere endorser made his way back to Beaverton and the Swoosh started to take full advantage of that. They started off with two incredible colorways released in conjunction with Tennis’ summer majors. One steeped in tradition and with strict uniformity rules, the other, more of a rock and roll atmosphere encouraging its participants to let their hair down, NYC. Each shoe a perfect representative of the tournament.” – @krvanch

ASICS GEL Lyte V Volcano

#8 Ronnie Fieg x ASICS GEL Lyte V “Volcano”

“RF releases used to be semi-smooth since it was people that were trying to branch out to try new brands, now sadly everyone wants to be “the other guy” thus making the RF ASICS hard to obtain. But with that being said,  the “Volcanos” simple colorblocking & subtle drips on the midsole make it a top 10 for me”.@DeadstockNYC

“The Ronnie Fieg “Volcano” Gel Lyte V is the best ASICS of the year. The Gel Lyte III was starting to feel a tad tired towards the end of 2013, and it was a breath of fresh air to have a new model collaborated on. I think the V is a more complicated model to color block, and these feature a super challenging colorway that sets the bar REALLY high for 2014 Gel Lyte V collabs.”@AndyOliverWPG

#9 – Air Jordan V “Doernbecher” 

“I’ve long loved Nike’s involvement with the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, but I’ve never felt very strongly about a DB Jordan before this year. The Doernbecher Jordan V delivers on all levels. They’re fantastic looking, wearable shoes with an amazing story behind them. Isaac should be incredibly proud.”@AndyOliverWPG 

“The Doernbecher V was a bittersweet release—amazing shoe, great story, but the demand far exceeded the supply. However, if you were able to get your hands on these, its an amazing conversation piece on an old classic.”@DeadstockNYC

#11 – Saint Alfreds x ASICS Gel Lyte III

“It was cool to see other U.S. shops get a crack at the Gel Lyte III this year, and Saint Alfred had the most interesting interpretation. This beachy makeup almost looks like a different shoe with the tonal stripes and gum sole. Very cool.”@AndyOliverWPG 

“Many doubted the shoe at first, but after basically destroying Saint Alfred’s website, this release was crazy. Great colors on a great silhouette and will continue to be sought after for years to come.”@EricMatenaer

#12 -  Nike Lunar FlyKnit Chukka

“These Chukkas don’t have the HTM namesake behind them, but let’s be real…they’re better. If I had to pick a shoe model as the best of the year, it would be the Flyknit Chukka, and this is the best colorway.”@AndyOliverWPG

“You can never go wrong with all red shoes. Add in gold accenting Flywire, a black swoosh, hits of black knit throughout and the most comfortable lunar sole you’ve ever felt.”@EricMatenaer

Should you find yourself in a position to attend an NBA game, there are a set of guidelines to follow.

1. Don’t root for the visiting team (loudly).

You’d think this would be self-explanatory, but oftentimes, there are frequent offenders. Primarily, this tip is for your safety. You are, by all means, allowed to root for whatever team you like, but the pro tip here would be to limit your celebrations should your team go on a run or, heaven forbid, win the game.

2. Grab your concessions at the major breaks.

Going against this tip is the equivalent of texting in a movie theater. Arena seating is more than likely to be cramped, and no one likes having to miss the action for a second while someone is crossing their path to grab refreshments. Plan ahead, locate your seat, then get prepared before the game starts.

3. Don’t show up late or leave early.

This goes hand in hand with the previous tip. You’re crossing a lot of lines and paths by showing up late to a game, so the least you can do is stay until the end. Don’t expect to make it out unscathed if you take off early as well. 

4. Pay attention.

Given the fact that nearly all NBA games are televised, if you have the opportunity to be physically at a game, be present. So, a good idea would be to refrain from asking questions such as, “Who’s winning?” or “What’s the Navy Team’s name?” 

5. No social media-ing.

Another one that ties into the previous tip. Tweeting, Facebooking and Instagramming should be off-limits. LeBron James just dunked on the entire team. No need to give a play-by-play via your Twitter account. We’re sure ESPN has got it covered.

This last one’s more of a given, and less a tip: get yourself some team apparel. It wouldn’t hurt to be prepared beforehand in this area.

What are some rules you stand by when it comes to attending a game?
