The world of athletic footwear and urban clothing has grown to astronomical popularity in the last few years. While videos of young people talking about how much their clothes cost are circulating the internet, we’ve put together a selection of apps that any real sneakerheads need to have installed on their smartphones. From apps that make sure you’re the first to know about new releases, to ones that help you find the right size for your shoes.

One of the biggest problems when it comes to buying sneakers online is not knowing how they’re going to fit you. While it’s impossible to know for sure until you actually try the shoes on, asphaltgold fittingroom lends us a huge helping hand. All you have to do is give an example of a size and style that fits you and the app will tell you what size you need to buy in the sneaker that you want. It’s a great tool although it may not show you the latest models that have come out recently since it hasn’t been updated in a while. [Download]

Sneakers

A lot of apps try to focus on one single function to give it all they’ve got, however the app known as Sneakers has taken a different approach. This app offers a wide selection of features: the option to view the release dates of shoes, news related to shoes, chat with other users of the app, use its interpersonal market, etc. Although it doesn’t stand out for one feature in particular, it’s an “all-in-one” app that that’s great if you don’t have much memory space on your smartphone.

HYPEBEAST

Anyone with an interest in urban fashion or the world of sneakers will know about HYPEBEAST. We’re talking about one of the most important portals on the scene. This app gives you a shortcut to all the information you want in the most convenient way possible. In addition to all sorts of news, it has a huge database of releases so you don’t miss a single detail about what’s coming out next. [Download]

HYPEBAE

The portal HYPEBAE focuses on urban fashion for women. Without a doubt, it’s one of the most attentive and trustworthy sources of information about the topic. Its official app works the same as HYPEBEAST: tons of information, news about urban style for women, and a powerful database with future releases. [Download]

Droplist

Droplist’s simplicity won us over from the very first time we opened the app. It’s a tool that gives you direct information about future releases from the most important brands of sneakers and urban fashion. So you’ll see the release dates and stores selling Nike and Adidas, but also for articles that will be released by other important fashion brands like Gucci, ASSC, Supreme, Bape, and Palace. [Download]

KicksOnFire

Years later, and we still use the portal KicksOnFire to get information about new sneaker releases. News without sugarcoating of any kind, all focused on what’s important: knowing when certain models are set to come out and relevant information about them (colorway, SKU, price, etc.). The app works great, but it’ll also help to make sure you don’t lose track of releases by letting you save your favorite styles. [Download]

StockX

One of the aspects that surprises people outside the world of urban fashion is the price tag that many of these items carry. This is where apps like StockX help you to figure out exactly what these products are currently selling for. Through this app, you can buy and sell shoes, as well as find out how much people are willing to spend. It’s a must-have tool that’s improved its features even more since it started to include articles from Supreme. [Download]

GOAT

It’s becoming typical to end up being unable to buy the shoes you want. The popularity of the world of sneakers doesn’t stop growing and the possibility of getting the kicks you dream of is becoming harder and harder to attain. That’s why the second-hand shoe market is one of the best ways to go about getting your sneaker fix. GOAT works as an intermediary to help users buy or sell their footwear. The app has a minimalist design and aims to make sure you buy authentic brands, no copies here. [Download]

Nike SNEAKRS

While we don’t want to give publicity to any brand in particular, it would be a sin not to mention Nike. Not only for the importance of the company that coined the Swoosh, but for creating an app that’s become an important addition to our smartphones. In addition to keeping us informed about all things related to Nike, SNEAKRS is one of the best ways to get the most limited sneakers from the company. Or at least try to, considering it takes a lot of luck to get your hands on a pair. Without a doubt, it’s one of those apps that other leading brands should take note of. [Download]

adidas – Sports & Style

We couldn’t forget to mention the brand from Herzogenaurach, especially after talking about the Nike app. This app is similar to SNEAKRS, but its informative aspect might be a few steps behind. While it still has a ways to go, it works pretty well if what you’re looking for is a pair of classic Adidas. [Download]

Laced

We’ve already mentioned how hard it can be to actually get your hands on the most exclusive releases. Laced is here to try to solve this problem thanks to its interesting method of obtaining sneakers via auctions: you’ll have to be the last one to bid on a specific pair in order to win it. Although the catalog is rather small, it’s an interesting way to try to get those sneakers that slipped through your fingers. [Download]
