Red sneakers are becoming more and more popular these days. Standing out from the massive crowd of all-white and all-black sneakers, the colourway is a hit for both girls and guys alike, and with the darker and drearier days coming closer and closer, there’s never been a better time to cop a pair of red hot kicks. With that said, we’ve compiled a list of fifteen rouge runners that you need in your sneaker collection right now!
The fact that these are still sitting is insane. The atmos x Nike Air Max 90 ‘We Love Nike’ is highlighted with an all-over Nike box graphic on the mid panel and mudguard as well as the insole, showing your allegiance to the Swoosh. A black snakeskin texture features on the Nike Swoosh logo, while ‘Crimson’ accents and a white midsole complete the design.
Marking the third collaboration between the power duo, the adidas By Alexander Wang Bball Soccer takes inspiration from the unique offcuts and manufacturing errors during footwear production. This football shoe features a premium red suede upper, Three Stripe branding, and iconic Boost elements.
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.
Released earlier this summer, the Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals Tennis Hu V2 ‘Scarlet’ flawlessly fuses form and function. Made from a versatile knit material, this East Africa inspired shoe boasts a one piece upper, and includes suede panelling on the lateral and medial sides, and a grid-patterned EVA midsole is present underfoot for additional comfort and a smoother stride.
Constructed in a bootie-style formation, the Nike Air Max 270 ‘Bred’ is inspired by two icons of big Air: the 180 and Air 93. Dressed in red and black, this sporting pair is crafted from a breathable knit material and features an Air unit that comes straight from the Air VaporMax. A must cop.
Taking the EQT silhouette to the next level, the adidas EQT Support 91/18 ‘Bold Orange’ first leaked back in July. Dressed in a combination of materials including premium leather and breathable mesh, this EQT is unlike anything we’ve seen before. Painted in a contrasting colour scheme, a leather cage wraps around the sneaker for extra support, and to round off the design, these sneaks sit atop a full length Boost midsole.
Made for the autumn season, the Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2.0 NRG ‘Team Red’ is crafted from Flyknit and is painted in a dark red shade. Black accents feature throughout the silhouette, making its way to the full length Air VaporMax midsole that we all know and love. Around the heel, a ‘Vachetta Tan‘ leather heel counter rounds it all off, giving the shoe a sporty yet luxurious vibe.
Inspired by the mesh midsole of the Marathon trainer, the adidas Originals Deerupt ‘Solar Red’ features a mesh upper, a grid-like white webbing for subtle compression, and foam pockets moulded to the Ortholite sockliner for additional comfort. Sat on a contrasting blue EVA midsole, they’re finished with a suede overlay that shows off the signature Trefoil logo.
Featuring a bold colour scheme, the Nike Air VaporMax Utility ‘Team Red’ features a mid-cut silhouette that is designed for more rugged terrain. Additional foam in the midsole offers wearers better cushioning, and a new toggle lacing system makes this sneaker stand out from the crowd. Crafted from Flyknit tech, these kicks sit atop a full length Air unit for additional comfort and a smoother stride.
Introduced to the world in 2017, the adidas Originals NMD XR1 Adventure ‘Scarlet’ is made to tackle the elements. Featuring a weather resistant insulator lining, this bold shoe is crafted from Primeknit and features a high top sock like upper for added protection. A full length Boost midsole is present underfoot for extra oomph with every step.
On board with the logo craze, the Nike Air Max 90 Premium ‘Crimson’ is proudly plaster with Air Max branding across the patent leather uppers. Dressed in a bright red hue, not even the clashing colours can draw the attention away from the savvy self-promotion. Cushioned with a foam midsole and a Max Air unit, this pair prove their worth with technology that does what it sets out to do.
For any true sneakerhead or collector of iconic footwear, you can’t help but appreciate the adidas Originals Quesence ‘Collegiate Burgundy’, which pays homage to the ’70s-inspired silhouette complete with all the OG details from heel to toe. Whilst adidas have re-worked and re-released plenty of iconic footwear, this may take the cake as the most unusual.
Generating a solid amount of hype over the past few weeks, the Nike Air Jordan 1 High OG ‘Vintage Coral’ is dressed in bright red leather and features large, striking branded hits on the lateral and medial quarter panels. Utilising a mix of large Nike lettering and a blown-up repeating text graphic, this AJ1 is a certified attention grabber this fall season.
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 Spectra ‘Burgundy’ 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 Spectra is crafted from dark red premium mesh and nubuck for a rib cage inspired aesthetic.
