The Air VaporMax is Nike’s first shoe with its latest Air-cushioning technology: an Air unit strong and flexible enough to be both the midsole and outsole. Japanese label Comme des Garçons got first dibs at a collab, turning the running shoe into a slip-on. Drops 2/2017.
THE BEST Shoes
The much-awaited collaboration between Nike’s Jordan brand and Drake’s record label OVO Sound is out now. Or most likely sold out already. The collection is highlighted by a white and champagne Jordan XII, but we’ve got our eyes on the oversized Jumpman logo hoodie.
One of the ’90s kids’ must-have shoes. Spurs legend David Robinson made the Air Unlimited famous in 1994, but its neoprene ankle support was way ahead of its time. It will be re-released in its original white and emerald colorway as well as in a new triple black scheme.
With winter around the corner, you’ll want to grab a pair of Muck Boots‘ waterproof, fleece-lined boots to keep your feet warm and dry. We particularly love the new black and red Buffalo Plaid pattern which is due this December, just in time for the nastiest part of the season.
Combining the richness of leather with the styling and functionality of sneakers, M. Gemi’s Italian-made high-tops have a hand-burnished pebbled finish, a leather-lined inner and footbed, and a rubber sole. They’re the perfect work/life shoe. In burgundy, navy, or black.
Under Armour gets in the Olympic spirit by dressing up Steph Curry’s latest signature shoes in patriotic colors. Available in white with blue and red trim or navy blue with white and red trim. They retain the burrito tongue construction that fits snugly around your ankles.
Old school basketball meets cutting edge soccer tech in this upcoming variant of the OG Jordans. The Air Jordan 1 Retro Ultra High features an upper made of lightweight material and an ankle bootie borrowed from Nike’s new soccer cleats and futsal shoes. Drops 8/13/16.
The shoe that made Nike’s Air-Sole visible finally gets the Flyknit treatment, making this the lightest Air Max 1 to date. The AM1 Ultra Flyknit’s tongue and toe have perforations to provide ventilation, while the rest of the upper is tightly knit for support. Drops 7/28/16.
