The Sneakers You Should Be Searching for, According to 8 Aficionados

The Sneakers You Should Be Searching for, According to 8 Aficionados 6

I fell into my first sneaker wormhole while working at Outdoor Voices on a collaboration with Hoka One One on their Clifton 4. We loved the old Hoka styles from the early 2000s and found that an easy way to dig through the archive was actually by hunting around on eBay. The Hoka One One Stinson became my go-to search. (“Hoka One One Stinson Lite” and “Hoka One One Stinson Tarmac” if you want to get really specific.) Something about the now-discontinued running shoe was charming: colorful and chunky, like a Jolly Rancher made for running.

After the Hoka wormhole came the Newton obsession. Based in Boulder, Colorado, Newton Running shoes offered a sleeker, cleaner look compared to the chunky Hoka. They had a much slimmer sole, which made me feel like a “serious runner” and looked smart enough to wear with a dress. I love the blocky color combinations older Newtons have. Poshmark seems to oddly have a good selection of used Newtons starting at $25. (Like these, these or these….) If freshness is your thing, you can find some good ones on eBay, too, by filtering the condition to “New with box.”

So, those are my current obsessions, but of course I could always use more. So I talked to a handful of leading sneaker aficionados about the vintage styles they love the most right now.
