Following 2017’s highly coveted NMD R1 collaboration, BAPE and adidas linked up yet again for the BAPE x adidas Ultra Boost ‘Green’!

Rounding it all off is a patriotic ape head which adorns the right tongue, rounding off the fire design that dropped on February 2nd.
After a considerable delay, the Off-White x Nike Air Max 90 ‘Desert Ore’ finally released on February 7th to much fanfare. Painted in a light brown shade throughout its upper, a striking orange Swoosh is present along the side panels, while a bold ‘Hyper Jade’ patch provides the shoe with a beautifully contrasted aesthetic.

Building upon a stealthy black base, its glossy shell equipped upper features an all-over floral pattern. Graced with ravishing roses and dainty daisies, the shoe is offset by a stark black sole, throat, and inner lining. Branding is kept to a minimum here, with a small embroidered Swoosh near the toe and a luxe gold ‘V’ lace lock.
Painted in La Flame’s signature ‘Army Olive‘ and ‘Ale Brown‘ colour scheme, the Travis Scott x Nike Air Jordan 33 ‘Cactus Jack’ hit shelves on February 14th and is crafted from a wide range of premium materials including leather and mesh. The iconic Jumpman logo hits the right tongue, while Scott’s signature “Cactus Jack” motif graces the left. Additional branding adorns the heel, and fighter jet inspired detailing can be found throughout, such as the “PULL TO EJECT” tag.
Opting to borrow the classic colour blocking of the ‘Chicago’, the Nike Air Jordan 1 ‘Turbo Green’ released on February 15th and features a white leather base that’s accented by ‘Turbo Green’ suede overlays. Unique “SP 19 Air Jordan 1 High OG” branding accompanies the signature midfoot Swooshes, and the colourway is elevated with a clean white midsole that is paired with a contrasting green rubber outsole.
Since it was first introduced back in March 2016, sneakerheads everywhere have been (im)patiently waiting for the release of the successor of the wildly popular HyperAdapt 1.0, and it has finally arrived on February 17th in the form of the Nike Adapt BB ‘Black’! Taking the form of a basketball shoe, upon slipping your foot in, the shoe automatically adjusts to the shape of your foot. The innovative self-lacing system has also been fully reworked, becoming smaller, lighter, and enabling more applications across more sports. Unlike the HyperAdapt 1.0, the Adapt BB can connect to your smartphone so you can to fine-tune your fit, switch between presets, customise the lights, check battery levels and more.
