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.

#14 – Nike Air Python

“Timeless.”@DeadstockNYC

“My best of 2013 may not even make any other list and this is purely personal for me as this shoe was my ‘white whale’. In 1989 when I first started at Foot Locker, this shoe was on our ‘Fourth Down’ wall, meaning it was a last chance shoe, and was $19.99. I planned on buying them because brown and white were my school colors. One day they were no longer there. This always stuck with me, and when the internet ‘came out’ I researched and found out the rarity of the shoes. I always regretted not buying those Pythons back then. When I saw their return, it was as a complete shock and surprise that this forgotten gem was going to make a return.”@krvanch

#15 – Nike Free Flyknit

“This shoe may have been the highlight of the summer for me simply based on the technology it offers, the implications of its uses in future Nike models and the coloring options of the upper.”@krvanch

“The Nike Free Flyknit conjoined all that is holy for hipsters in NYC, EVERYONE has frees…EVERYONE has Flyknits. So what’s better than a next to nothing “sock” essentially for either daily errands or track ready?”@DeadstockNYC

#16 – ASICS x Ronnie Fieg Gel Lyte III “East Coast Project”

“The East Coast Project set the bar pretty high for hype in early 2013. It was a hectic week for the whole Kith family, but I can honestly say that the shoes lived up to buzz. Both warrant their own spot in the top 25, but to be charitable, I’ll combine them into 1 spot.”@AndyOliverWPG

“Whether you love or hate Mr. Fieg, you can’t argue that he doesn’t know how to execute a colorway. The Knicks ECP gel lyte 3 is a perfect example.”@EricMatenaer

#17 – Nike Zoom Flight Glove 

“The Glove is one of those shoes you either loved or hated. I always thought they were a great addition to Nike Basketball but at the time you had to pick your poison, Penny, Payton, MJ, etc.—so it’s nice to see the legends get their shine.”@DeadstockNYC

In 1992 The PUMA Disc shook up the industry as the first laceless running shoe.

The internal wire system enhanced fit while an optimized amount of Trinomic cushioning technology allowed for long mileage.  Just turn the Disc’s dial and the internal wires tighten the upper to maximize fit and comfort. Trinomic was PUMA’s performance technology launched in the ’90s that focused on stability and cushioning and is still very relevant today.

When unleashed on the world of track and field, the Disc was head-turning and record breaking. Many athletes wore track spike versions of the Disc, and the laceless system proved to be not only fast, but also a stylish addition to the track [see historical disk below].

Now, this ground-breaking style makes a triumphant return with the “Tech’d Out” version – complete with a glossy cage, lighter breathable upper and a lightweight Faas bottom. While the Disc still has all the same performance technology from back in the day, in 2013 it makes an impact on the lifestyle side, combining technology with clean lines and street style.

Mix it up, and get the Disc in your sneaker rotation stat.

#18 –  Air Jordan I “Black Toe” 

“Classic Bulls color on the all time classic Jordan.”@EricMatenaer

“The “Black Toe” Air Jordan I creates a visual separation of the toe box and heel counter. Also, great to see the shoe from the Jumpan logo make its return.”@krvanch

Grant Hill wore the FILA 96, also known as the FILA Grant Hill 2, when he helped the USA Basketball Team bring home the gold at the Olympics over 17 years ago. FILA utilizes the USA-themed colorway with a handful of noteworthy new details, including a graphic insole and lining, as well as the chenille FILA logo on the ankle and tongue, which further reiterates the “Varsity” nickname of these FILA 96s.  These–now throwback–sneakers represent Grant’s phenomenal performance at the Olympics, as well as his other accomplishments, including his 1995 NBA co-Rookie of the Year, 7-time NBA All-Star, and 3-time winner of the NBA Sportsmanship Award. On or off the court, you can pay homage to a legendary player and his contributions to the game we all love.

The “Varsity” will be available at finishline.com on December 12th, 2013. Check out other FILAs available now.

#19 – Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 1600 “Daytona”

“When Ronnie told me he was going to do a 1600, my first reaction was ‘really? A 1600?’ Once again, he proved me wrong. I mean, just look at the toe. The perforations. Without a doubt, the best NB1600 ever.”@AndyOliverWPG

“Ronnie has the ‘Midas Touch’ when it comes to his collaborations and true to form he kills it again with the materials, color selection and silhouette choice on the New Balance 1600. In my opinion, this New Balance rivals that of the Concepts 999 Kennedy.”@krvanch

#20 – Nike Inneva Woven

“Inneva Woven is an acquired taste, you either love the design or you wouldn’t give it a chance, EVER. But if you’ve been on the fence and luckily slid your foot in a pair, you’re instantly won over.”@DeadstockNYC

“The Inneva has been, to me, what innovation at Nike is all about—hand woven in Italy. The woven pattern between the colored blues is what really sets these off. It took me a long time to figure out which shoe is the shoe of the year, but after thinking about it the decision became very clear #teamblueinneva”  – @EricMatenaer
