Colorways of 2012 – The Good and the Bad

Bryan Byrne December 22, 2012 8

This year, we were treated to a record setting number of new colorways from different brands; +110. If you are like me, this causing mass excitement and continued excitement to see what companies will release next. And then there are the folks who find it all a little overwhelming and can’t decide on the look that suits them best. Either way, I wanted to give you my 5 BEST and 5 WORST colorways of the year. This was not an easy process, but the end result represents my personal taste in what is available for players to choose from. Each image links to the release details for each boot.

I encourage you to leave your selection for best and worst in the comment section below – if you need help deciding, check our Latest Releases page for full details on all boot from 2012!

    What I really see is the Safe and the Unsafe…the "Bad' are the more unique colorways and actually most players like more than the "Good".
