Just a few days into the New Year and 2013 has already rolled out some impressive new performance sneakers. Once more, the forecast for athletes in every category is looking bright—with brands like Asics, New Balance, and Mizuno looking to make innovative power moves by re-conceptualizing upper construction, midsole technology, and the details that tie it all together. Likewise, Brooks Running is set to roll out an entire sequel series of its popular PureProject line, with the addition of the all-new PureDrift. And as expected, Nike’s multi-sport lineup (ranging from soccer to running to basketball) for this year also looks to be on point, offering a sleek look with updated performance materials.

While we realize that this list will expand tri-fold as the year progresses, and as more sneakers are unveiled, here is our current list of 50 Game-Changing Performance Sneakers to Watch for in 2013.

    Under Armour footwear is looking promising as well. Has Nike peaking over their shoulder a bit. Watch out for UA.
