 In News, Sneakers

sneaker-news-2022-tsbHere comes the bearer of the good news. Here comes the bearer of the bad shit. Well, it ain’t our intention to put you in low spirits or anything. But ya know, we gotta let you on all the hot tea the sneaker industry offered up last year. And let’s hope that the nasty parts of sneaker news 2022 don’t repeat themselves this year. Besides, we must say, the dope 2023 Jordan line-up is manifesting some good shit. Good enough, for now at least!

However, we can’t deny that 2022 got us riding a rollercoaster on its last legs. It was an on-and-off, both long and short, kinda ride. One that had you the happiest with a hot release one moment. While you’d find yourself anxious because of ‘em new rules the very next moment. Or better yet, you find out your favorite sneaker brand had vanished into the murky depths in the blink of an eye. So, let’s check out some of the big headlines that shaped up 2022’s sneaker world!  

Sneaker News 2022: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly 

Y’all will realize that starting the year, sneaker news 2022 was lowkey chill. But as time went by, things started spicing up. Or more like firing up. And definitely not in a good way. Now we all know that apparel is numero uno in the retail fashion segment, ‘cause y’know clothes are essential… But what comes as the second most important shit to the retail business is, you guessed it right, footwear! And the key companies taking over the industry are Nike, Adidas, and New Balance. These ain’t some wise-a$$ predictions. These are facts reported by Statista

Thing is, although the sneaker market has been expanding as heck, the blow it took after COVID was catastrophic. Businesses shut down, while others thrived. Things were like a chess match. It needed some luck to hold onto your place and not go down like the others. At the same time, the precise skill of knowing the market’s tactics played a huge role in being among the winners. Now, let’s move ahead and see all that 2022 had to offer.
