3. Converse Chuck Taylor

Probably one of the world's most popular sneakers ever. Converse offers classic design that hasn't changed in years. These kicks can be found on people of all ages and across many subcultures. In Denver, they are more popular around the campuses and malls, than on the streets, where you're better off being seen in a pair of Nikes.

4. Nike Dunks SB

The SB Dunk retails on average between $65.00 - $99.00; relatively low for sneaker standards. However, since they’re popular among collectors and skateboarders alike, many stores tend to raise the prices on the shoes based on how high the demand is for a particular release. You can browse through the selection here or just scour the web on your own.

6. New Balance 998

The New Balance 998 was originally designed for large-frame runners. However, sneakerheads slowly started noticing them for their sleek and simplistic design -- and outdoor versatility. Featuring a retro sneaker laced with techno styling, the 998 mixes the best of the old with the new. The design team kept the shell of a vintage kick and focused on perfecting the comfort and support INSIDE of it. The result is what you see here. If you like a simpler cut, go for the New Balance 554.

7. Nike Air Force 1 Low Premium

In 1982, the Air Force 1 became the first basketball shoe to became hugely popular with ballers and trendsetters alike. This classic Nike sneaker, praised numerous times in hip-hop lyrics, is a definite Detroit street favorite.

White AF1s are commonly found worn on all occassions and in all environments. They are commonly found matched with a pair of crisp 'out-of-the-dryer' baggy jeans, an XL button-down shirt, and/or XL white or gray t-shirt. So, just as a set of white teeth can beam the shiniest smile around, local slicksters can be found rocking the all-white kicks to flash the freshest style in town. Also popular are Air Jordans.
