Although its sometimes a cliche, there's nothing wrong with wearing red, white and blue to celebrate America's independence. Year after year, Americans continue to celebrate this holiday with cookouts, family gatherings and of course, fireworks. It's also a time to break out your red, white and blue sneakers you keep stashed away for 364 days out of the year.
Occasionally though, its time for something new. Year after year, sneaker companies push out more USA-themed sneakers, and 2015 is no exception. If you're looking to rock your colors with some fresh new kicks, there are plenty of options for you.
Here's a rundown of the best Independence Day releases of 2015.
