Here are the best sneaker and sock combinations of 2021
What is a masterpiece without its frame? Or a good engine without its chassis? Some of the greatest things in this world come in pairs. Sneakers are no different. Of course, your Union Jordans are beautiful on their own, but they don’t reach their full potential without the right socks. When you match your precious sneakers with the right socks, you essentially unlock a higher plane of existence for them, so why is your sock game slacking off?
No one knows the power of a good sock better than Stadium Goods. The resale platform respects the sock so much, in fact, that it just dropped a line of socks with a perfect palette for every shoe in your rotation.
The Stadium Goods socks made us fantasize about today’s dream sneaker and sock combinations, so we’ve rounded up our ideal pairs below. From the New Balance x Joe Freshgoods 990v3 to Bad Bunny’s all-black Forum collaboration, the selection shows that even the most fashionable sneakers can benefit from the right pair of socks.

YEEZY RNNR Mousse & Cookie Dough
The adidas YEEZY Foam RNNR is a nice place to start our adventure into the world of sneaker and sock combinations thanks to its see-through construction. Your socks are of the utmost importance here and we combine a neutral Cookie Dough colourway with the cream of the YEEZY RNNR. Cookies and cream are always a good idea.
Bad Bunny & Slime Forum
The all-black version of Bad Bunny on the adidas forum sets the stage for a pop of color. We associate the tone-on-tone black silhouette with a sock with a black base, but the text Slime brings a nice touch of life to the sober structure.
Joe Freshgoods 990v3 & Blue & Cream
The New Balance x Joe Freshgoods 990v3 has to be one of the best colourways of the year. Pops of vibrant blue and green highlight the mostly neutral upper which mixes a number of stunning textures. A light blue and cream sock showcases all that is good with the 990v3.
Union Jordan 4 & Mocha
Some things are meant to be, and the fact that Stadium Goods’ Mocha socks perfectly match the Desert Moss colorway of the Nike Air Jordan 4 made in collaboration with Union earlier this year is one of those things. Bring some harmony to the universe by keeping this sneakers & socks combination intact.
Dunk Low Team Green & Cream City
Look, you don’t need us to tell you how popular the Nike Dunks are right now. Go anywhere and you will likely see a handful of pairs walking, so it becomes all the more important to distinguish your pair from the crowd. We’re pairing the Cream City socks with the Team Green dunks to complete the varsity colourway.
