There is a common misconception that copping premium, limited edition and in-demand sneakers has to set you back several hundred pounds, particularly when it comes to an exclusive brand like Nike, but in fact there are plenty of affordable options. Whilst it is true that in the sneaker industry, there is an increasing focus on the higher end of the price scale and options for cheaper alternatives may seem slim at first glance, here at The Sole Scene, you don’t have to spend a fortune to look and feel great in a pair of limited-edition treads.
