Simple yet striking, the adidas Originals Continental 80 ‘Black’ is built with a leather upper for a smooth and premium look. Sat atop a responsive midsole to keep you on your toes, tonal lacing is present for a unique yet understated aesthetic. To round it all off, the stealthy sneaks are finished with a red and navy stripe to the sidewalls along with adidas wording and Trefoil branding.
Constructed of a bevy of high quality materials, the adidas Originals EQT Support ADV ‘Gucci’ flawlessly fuses modern materials with a retro runner style. A thick foam midsole is present underfoot for additional comfort, while three red and green Gucci-inspired ribbons are present on both the lateral and medial sides.
A modernised take on the legendary Nike Monarch, the Nike M2K Tekno ‘White/Orange’ features an upper painted in a primarily white shade. Tonal branding is abundant on the shoe’s upper, while a bold blue plastic heel piece adds subtle contrast to the vibrant shoe. The look is completed with a classic Monarch midsole which is touched up with a dash of red.
While the AM95 may not be as popular as some of Nike’s other silhouettes, like the Air Max 97, it’s still one hell of a shoe, and the Swoosh’s latest offering, the Nike Air Max 95 ‘Red Crush’, is certainly no different. A perfect combination of old tradition and new technology, the Air-infused midsole is sure to give you extra oomph with every step.
Featuring a stretchy sock like upper with tonal Three Stripe branding present on the side panels, the adidas Originals P.O.D.-S3.1 ‘Triple White’ sits atop a hybrid midsole made up of Boost cushioning around the heel and an EVA foam unit along the front – a mish mash of man and monster like Frankenstein. To round it all off, a fabric heel tab can be found around the back, which is adorned tastefully with subtle Trefoil branding.
Lined with breathable mesh that helps keep your feet cool in all conditions, the adidas Originals I-5923 ‘Red’ embraces a retro aesthetic this season. Complete with a base of durable gum rubber, the bold red sneakers are built with stretchy mesh and suede uppers, whilst Boost cushioning deliver responsive comfort underfoot.
Paying homage to collaborations from the late Alexander McQueen, more specifically the PUMA McQ Tech Runner Lo of 2005, the PUMA Thunder Desert ‘Triple Black’ flawlessly fuses sports and fashion to create a sneaker that is unlike anything else currently on the market. Featuring a moulded TPU system which offers additional structure and support, the Thunder Desert is crafted from murdered out premium mesh and nubuck for a rib cage inspired aesthetic.
Unveiled earlier this year, the Nike Air Max 270 ‘Triple Black’ has quickly become one of the Swoosh’s most popular silhouettes thanks to its futuristic styling. Painted in a stealthy, versatile hue, an Air unit sits around the heel, offering wearers extra oomph with every step. “AIR 270” branding adorns the side, while multiple mini Swooshes appear throughout for that unmistakably Nike vibe.
Painted in an off white hue, the adidas Originals NMD R1 ‘Off White/Red’ is crafted from a breathable mesh, while a full length Boost midsole sits underfoot for added oomph with every step. Unlike many other Nomads, this edition features a bold red EVA plug for an eye catching aesthetic that also offers added stability and control.
The Nike Air Max 95 OG ‘Solar Red’ is literally fire. Dressed in a ‘White’, ‘Solar Red’, ‘Granite’ and ‘Dust’ colour scheme, this AM95 features a clean white mesh upper with shades of grey throughout. Highlighting the shoe are bold red accents on the lace loops, tongues, insole, Swoosh logo, and outsole, and to round it all off, a vibrant Air unit features on the midsole for additional comfort.
Inspired by the sleek designs of Japanese bullet trains, the Nike Air Max 97 ‘Metallic Gold’ is a must cop for any sneaker collection. Fashioned from luxe leather, these kicks are equipped with a full-length Air unit to keep things comfortable on the go. An iconic design, the ‘Metallic Gold’ is rounded off with a bold red Swoosh for a neck breaking aesthetic.
A totally versatile colourway that stands out and blends in at the same time, this adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 ‘Triple White’ is as clean as it gets. Painted in a pristine white hue, a complementary cage and heel cup offer wearers extra stability, and to round it all off, a full length Boost midsole sits underfoot for additional comfort with every step.
One of the latest shoes from Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto and adidas, the adidas Y-3 Saikou ‘Core Black’ was one of Paris Fashion Week’s highlights. Crafted from a flexible Primeknit upper, suede adorns the side of the toe box, while sitting atop a full length Boost midsole for additional comfort and a smoother stride. Perfect for both the street and the catwalk.
Inspired by the Georgetown Hoyas, which were arguably one of the top college basketball programs in the ’80s and ’90s, the Nike Air More Uptempo ‘Georgetown’ is painted in ‘Cool Grey’ and ‘Midnight Navy’ hues. A tonal midsole and rubber outsole sit underfoot, and an Air unit offers additional comfort and a smoother stride.
The Nike Air VaporMax Plus ‘Triple Black’ perfectly combines elements of the Tuned 1 and the Air VaporMax into a sneaker that definitely deserves a place in your collection. Fashioned from light neoprene uppers with synthetic overlays, a full length Air unit features down below. The perfect shoe to rock whatever the weather, these are as stealthy as it gets.
