We’ve seen the Vapormax’s designer release; now it’s time for the pleb drop. Nike celebrates the Air Max’s 30th anniversary with a casual running shoe that has a segmented, flexible and strong Air midsole-outsole combo that’s paired with a Flyknit upper. Drops 3/26/17.
Japanese shoe store Mita brought the heat and the rats for its take on New Balance’s hit shoe. The MRL247MT’s gray and brown colorway was inspired by the rodents plaguing Tokyo and many other urban joints. It also has reflective logos, side panels and heel tabs.
Acronym follows up its dope Air Prestos with an extra high cut Air Force 1 Downtown. The DAF1 adds a shin-length soft shell collar that’s secured by a cam buckle strap. A full-length zipper makes the shoes easy to put on and take off. Keep the F5 bouncing for the drop.
The Boost-updgraded Stan Smith looks awful. Thankfully Adidas toned it down for its shell-toed classic. The Superstar Boost retains its classic look, except for the exposed midsole on the inside arch. Drops 2/9/17. There’s also a BAPE x Neighborhood variant with Primeknit.
Not only does it have possibly the longest name for a shoe, the Tallac Flyknit promises to be as durable as conventional boots yet is as light and comfortable as Nike’s casual running shoes, thanks to its TPU-injected Flyknit upper and Phylon foam midsole.
A water-resistant variant of Nike’s resurgent slip-on sneaker. Aside from its mid cut, a silicon print over the Sock Dart’s knit upper adds water resistance while retaining the shoe’s flexibility. It also has a new outsole for improved traction. Drops 1/26/17.
Be the dopest dumpster diver with Vetement’s Spring Summer 2017 collab with Reebok. The anti-fashion label’s take on the Instapump Fury sees an all-white upper decked with asymmetric red, black and blue doodles. And yes, that Champion hoodie is dope as well.
HUF and Thrasher Magazine’s early Holiday special for skaters. The Tour de Stoops collection features 90’s style tees, shirts, socks and caps as well as coach jackets, anoraks and shoes. The two brands also made a skate video to complement their collection.
