The latest trends have shown that the most iconic basketball models are also the most desirable of the moment. Here are 5 of the most sought-after pairs of sneakers, which we hope to see on sale on Black Friday.

Taken by the hip-hop movement of the 80s, and the rappers of the 90s… Sneakers didn’t take long to go from status from sports equipment to fashion accessory. Today, certain models arouse the desire of many collectors. Here are 5 highly sought-after ones, which we hope to see in wide promotion on Black Friday this November 24.

Gazelle d’Adidas

If its release dates back to 1968, the pair of Gazelle d’Adidas hasn’t aged a bit. The proof is that it is among the most sought-after sneakers of 2023. Both men and women are snapping it up in different colors and materials. But the shape of the Gazelle remains the same: we find its rubber sole, its suede material and its three white side stripes. Design which made it the first “multisport basketball”, very famous in the world of athletics and handball.

New Balance 530

The dad shoe trend has not escaped anyone: we stopped hearing about it during 2023. Inspired by the running shoes our dads wore in the 90s, it is back in fashion to spruce up our city looks. And the pair of New Balance 530 plays a big part in it. Its cushioned sole curvature and leather and mesh upper, which gives a very sporty look, has become a full-fledged fashion accessory. To wear with straight jeans, cargo pants, or suits… It’s ideal for breaking up a classic look.

Asics Gel Nyc

Among the it-shoes of the moment, or should we say, the it-sneakers, we take the pair of Asics Gel Nyc. Very sought after recently, it seduces for its 00’s look, inspired by the Gel Nimbus 3 and the Gel Cumulus 16. Shoe on which we find details mixing leather and suede as well as a sole decorated with light foams and GEL technology. Comfort guaranteed!

New Balance 2002r

Still with a 2000s inspiration, the pair of New Balance 2002r is taking root among the sneaker trends of the moment. This slightly wedged sneaker features a suede and mesh upper. Materials that give it a retro look without ever neglecting comfort. To feel good in your sneakers all day long, the brand has thought of everything, including an ABZORB midsole with heel cushioning, and a Stability Web and N-ergy outsole that absorbs shock. Remarkable, no?


Samba d’Adidas

The Adidas Samba have been the Gazelle’s alter-ego all year long. Their somewhat similar design nevertheless has their own identity. The Samba is recognized above all by its low shape mixing leather and suede inserts, and its flat cupsole rubber sole. Design which has evolved a lot since its release in the 50s, originally designed for playing football.
