The Nike Air Force 1 Experimental “Postal Ghost” was the subject of major controversy this year, with the United States Postal Service initially pursuing a law suit against the shipping-box inspired sneaker.

Matthew M Williams has become the king of futuristic shoes, with his Nike Zoom MMW 4 becoming synonymous with the term. Releasing alongside a “Rust Factor” edition, this “Triple Black” iteration captures the monochromatic utilitarian design that fans have been waiting for. Double stacked soles, a Zoom Air forefoot, mesh upper, and a jet-black colorway make this perhaps the best MMW 4 to date. While the sneaker’s price point is a whopping $450, the silhouette’s vast features make it absolutely worth it.

The adidas YZY Foam Runner has transformed from laughing stock to grail status, as the croc-like runner has become a favorite for many.
