Keeping track of sneaker releases can be tricky at the best of times, but as the OG’s in Organising The Chaos, we’ve made it simple for you. Below is a list of the hottest drops this week, so you don’t take any L’s! Check our newsfeed every Monday for an updated round up.
Celebrating a quarter-century of the iconic model that birthed Air Max technology, Kylian Mbappé has recently co-signed the re-release of the OG Air Max Plus ‘Voltage Purple’. Dressed in the OG hue that started it all, the exterior is enveloped by a sleek black framework. A vivid ‘Total Orange’ Swoosh streaks across the lateral and medial sidewalls, reaching towards the iconic hexagonal emblems that grace the tongue and heel. Supple leather gracefully embraces the mudguards, and akin to its ’98 predecessor, the hefty midsole incorporates the latest Air Max technology. A restock that both old-school and new-school sneaker connoisseurs can surely agree on.
Re-emerging on the scene last year during Nike SNKRS Day, the 90s icon (the Air Footscape), is back again. With a distinctive openwork upper, the silhouette is instantly recognisable whether you love it or hate it! Boasting a tri-colour design, the upper utilities textured suede for a rustic feel which continues through the autumnal palette of beige and brown. Furthermore, the sole unit expresses a jet-black tone, creating a captivating contrast with the striking upper.
The highly coveted Nike Air Max 90 OG WMNS ‘Rose’ is making a comeback after initially being introduced back in 2020. Often associated with Valentine’s Day, vibrant pink hits garner attention, contrasting a harmony of neutral tones within the mesh, suede, and leather exterior. For a unified appearance, the shoe’s white midsole and pink rubber section surrounding the Air unit in the heel are complemented by a black and pink outsole.
If you’re all about colourways that champion a subtle steez, then you’re going to love this iteration of Tinker Hatfield’s ‘87 grail. Utilising ‘Smokey Mauve’ as the leading hue, the colour-blocking arrangement boasts a crisp white mesh base, laces and midsole. As well as the subdued mauve within the mudguard and Swoosh, grey segments on the upper work atop a felt-resembling suede. Underfoot, a waffle-patterned traction introduces a correlating colour scheme for a tidy and co-ordinated look.
Arriving amidst trends of the 2000s dad shoe, the asics GT-2160 has been charming fashion connoisseurs with its striking retro futuristic aesthetic. Exuding a timelessly technical persona, the off-white ‘Cream’ mesh foundation sports gleaming ‘Pure Silver’ embellishments. The forefoot design, segmented midsole, and GEL cushioning within the heel bring a touch of mechanical sophistication, decorated with black and gold accents that dance throughout the upper. Seamlessly integrating into the GT-2160 lineup, its fusion of mechanical precision and earthy tones offers a progressive look that’ll carry you through winter.
Following their success in the adidas Consortium Cup journey back in March, OFFSPRING are treating us to their adidas CENTENNIAL 85 LO ‘Crafted’ from Round 2. Draped in subdued hues, this iteration showcases a heel inspired by the flowing currents of the London Thames. Infused with luxury, the collaborative design includes a gilded touch on the medial quarter print and exposed foam edges, embodying a fusion of contemporary finesse and timeless artistry. Rounded off with dual branding reaffirming the occasion, who doesn’t want to rep the winning team?
Seamlessly fusing distinctive 2000s flair with PUMA’s undeniable legacy – next up is the P.A.M. x PUMA Velophasis ‘Frosted Ivory’. Crafted with an airy open-mesh base, the Velophasis guarantees a feather-light and breathable experience. Synthetic overlays, adorned with printed and debossed lines seamlessly elevate the visual allure of the shoe, imparting the distinctly futuristic vibe that we know and love.
The Nike Air Force 1 ’07 PRM ‘Baroque Brown’ couldn’t be a more perfect addition to your winter rotation. The brown canvas and elevated leather edges give the silhouette the appearance of an inside-out shoe, and we’re into it. Bringing a complementary contrast to the predominant chocolate tone, the midsole, laces, Swoosh, and inner lining flaunt a sail hue. The olive tone of the shoe, which is also mirrored in the brand element on the tongue, completes an autumn-appropriate outsole.
