The Freshest Kicks of 2018
There’s no denying that everyone has a certain affinity for sneakers and chances are, you have probably geeked out over Virgil Abloh’s elusive Off-White x Nike “The Ten” collection. If you are always on the hunt for the coolest kicks, and would like to know what is coming out this year, here are 5 pairs that you might want to keep your eye on.
The Harden Vol. 2 by Adidas
Come mid-February, Adidas and Rockets fans will be anticipating the new iteration of James Harden’s signature in two colourways. In a pop of orange, green and purple or a more basic burgundy, red and blue, these sneakers retain their trademark Boost midsole and feature a new customisable lacing setup. Who says too much colour is a bad thing?
Nike Air Max 270 Flyknit
Combining their Flyknit woven upper with the tallest Max Air heel ever created, Nike gives its signature lifestyle model an upgrade in performance and comfort. Slated for release early next month in different colour variations, the subtle detailing includes leather wrapped heels and the AIR branding on the side. It’s time to start saving up and joining the waiting list.
Puma Clyde x Diamond Supply Co.
As a continuation of their successful partnership, the Clyde sneakers which are part of a wider collection will be launched later this month, as well as in June to celebrate Puma’s 50th Anniversary. Showcasing vintage design cues in a selection of soothing denim or blue canvas against white soles, they’re a pair that draws you in instantly.
Reebok Classic x SNS
Sneakersnstuff reteams with Reebok to give its timeless Classic Leather series a more upscale appeal. Using a minimalistic application of gold debossing on elk leather in a single hue, this simple yet versatile pair (which was recently made available) will easily match with all your formal or casual outfits.
New Balance 991.5 x Concepts
Concepts enhances New Balance’s 991.5 hybrid shoes with suede and nubuck uppers in a vivid aqua/teal tone with reflective accenting on its tongue and logo. Blended with New Balance’s distinctive styling, these sneakers which are set to launch in just a few days, come in a granite-themed special edition shoe box for a complete collector’s package.
