We are very excited to welcome British brand Good News to our sneaker family this season! The brand combines a ’70s Americana feel and Major League Baseball aesthetic to create a brilliant plimsole that is perfect for everyday wear. With a canvas upper available in a number of colours, and tough rubber outsole, these are super comfortable and easy on the wallet.This week we’ll be releasing a new model for women from Nike as a co-creation project. Maha Amsterdam has collaborated with photographer Andy Tan on an interpretation of the new Nike Air Max Jewell Lux. Also, this will be the first season we’ll be carrying Suicoke, strappy sandals with Vibram soles. So dorky it’s fire! As for apparel, Norse Projects for women, not that under-the-radar, but they deserve the extra shine because it’s fuego!
Vans Old Skool Velcro. I was a big fan of the Prison Issue when I was a teenager, and I can’t wait for the Old Skool Velcro to be released for adults.For the summer, I always want something light and breathable. I’m still a fan of the Flyknit Trainer and Racer models, as well as the adidas Ultra Boost. In New York City, you walk around so much when it’s warm out, so comfort is the most important thing when choosing footwear. Usually when summer hits, Vans Authentics and Spring Court G2 low-tops are a go to for ease! But truthfully, we have so many sneakers that it really just depends on the day and the mood.I’m a sucker for chunky sneakers like Nike’s Air Max TN to the New Balance 991, but the new Nike Air VaporMax is a new love. Sleek upper with a chunky sole. I’m moving to New York this summer and hoping to bring some of my Miami roots with me.
To me this means spicing things up a bit, opting for color when everyone else opts for all black. I like colors that make me happy; yellow, orange, purple. Low tops will be my vibe next few months in terms of style, and comfort over everything so the lighter and more flexible, the better.With Paris Fashion Week (the women’s one, not Paris Fashion Week: Mens, which was back in January) reaching its apex, Highsnobiety‘s eagle-eyed shutterbugs drop a final hit of sneaker street style heat from the world’s fashion capital. No surprises here – tons of dope kicks on show, from Raf Simons’ coveted adidas line to Riccardo Tisci’s latest Nike venture and an in-the-wild sighting of adidas Originals’ NMD City Sock PK.
