The rest of the world might not be anywhere near back to normal, but this week the cogs of the sneaker release machine seemed to slowly start back up, offering a few real glimmers of hope in otherwise troubling times. We're talking not one, but two (count 'em, two快乐飞艇开奖app) new dunk styles, one of 'em courtesy of Comme Des Garçons, as well as yet another covetable pair of Jordans, and one of the most futuristic takes yet on a beloved Air Max silhouette to round out the pack.
And guess what? We'll take what we can get! Hey, beggars can't be choosers, right? Have a great week you sad, sad souls, and happy shopping.
Nike's auto-lacing technology has progressed by leaps and bounds since it was first introduced, and now the Swoosh is updating one of its most beloved Air Max silhouettes with the nifty new tech, kitting out the Adapt Auto Max with power laces that allow you to set and save your own preferred look (plus a whole host of other futuristic features).
For its latest collaboration, the Three Stripes enlisted L.A. streetwear stalwart 424 to put its signature spin on some of the brand's most beloved silhouettes. First up, a shoe that needs little introduction around these parts: the shell-toe stompers aka the Adidas Superstar, now done up in premium white leather with a sweet, sweet, hit of fire-engine red on the tip of the tongue to keep things interesting.
The latest silhouette from the Adidas Consortium collection leans hard into the technical details you're probably wishing you could put to good use right about now. Inspired by the OG XTA style initially released in the mid ‘90s the updated model features a mesh upper and a cross-lacing system for enhanced stability.
My sneakers probably think I'm dead (sad face) but my mocs have been getting a whole lotta love. And it makes sense—honestly, there's never been a better time to get the hybrid style. Nike's take on the half-moccasin, half-sneaker isn't new (check the 3.0 in the name) but the vibrant tie-dye uppers are sure to bring some good vibes to your quarantine grocery runs.
For its collaboration with the seminal streetwear brand The Hundreds, Puma dug deep into its extensive backlog of styles to update the Palace Guard, a classic basketball-inspired silhouette that looks as street-ready now as it did when it first blew up on the feet of key members of the "Bad Boy" era Pistons in the late '80s. The Hundreds wisely opted to leave the silhouette relatively untouched, adding in select hits of pastel hues that pop on the backdrop of the sneaker's otherwise pristine uppers.
