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.
Kicking us off with a silhouette teased all the way back in June, the Nike Air Max 1 WMNS ‘Tan Lines’ is finally in reach! This model boasts a delightful spectrum of pastel overlays, formed with distressed suede fabrics. Contrasted by a pale grey mesh panelling on the upper, the sandy beige mudguard allows for vintage-inspired feel. The faded ombré midsole feels reminiscent of days in the sun – unintentionally leaving your kicks outside for slightly longer than you should’ve. Retro Nike branding takes prime position on the tongue, heel and midsole, rounding off this textured delight.
Described as ‘the intersection of fashion and sport’, the new sub-brand Fear of God Athletics introduces a basketball-inspired lifestyle shoe. Making use of the Three Stripes’ progressive design engineering, the Fear of God Athletics x adidas I ‘Carbon’ features a plethora of technicalities to ensure maximum practicality. A neoprene collar and ankle bungee adorns the knit upper, delivering on-the-go comfort and ankle support. The sneaker’s appearance keeps things sleek and sophisticated, opting for a timeless black and white palette.
Within this dynamic offering, the cult label sees the Nike Air Footscape and Air Magma merge to form a hybrid lovechild – enter, the sacai x Nike Magmascape. Exuding trail-ready steez, the fresh-off-the-runway model incorporates the essence from both retro contributors. Utilising a boot silhouette, the collaborative Magmascape boasts a reimagined sole unit, adopting a B&W contrast within the ‘Varsity Royal’. The ‘Light British Tan’ colourway, however, sports a neutral beige and black lower, complimenting the chocolate-y hues of the upper. Of course, it wouldn’t be a sacai sneaker without the signature double lacing, bringing another level of precision to this already intricate capsule.
Synonymous with unparalleled craftsmanship, New Balance’s Made in UK series revisits the 991 for a streamlined ‘Urban Winter’ capsule. Amidst the hype for the recent 991v2, the Boston-based brand is ensuring that the legacy of the OG lives on. Boasting two opposing colourways of light and dark, the pack boasts an array of premium materials. The upper sports luxe pigskin panelling, working atop a synthetic base. Textured coated leather and ripstop materials contribute to the dynamic persona of both kicks, accentuated through tonal palettes. Looking towards the lower, an ABZORB midsole ensures consistent comfort, providing ease with every step.
It’s been a big year for the Nike Air Max Plus. From iconic collaborations like the Patta x FC Barcelona, to 25th Birthday celebrations – the TN is the shoe that keeps on giving. Arriving in perfect timing for the peak of winter, the Air Max Plus Camo delivers a clean aesthetic with an edge. Featuring signature black caging and detailing that’s familiar to the model, the ‘Camo’ element takes shape within the mesh base. Drawing resemblance to hunting gear (- typically donning a camouflage/orange formula), striking orange accents adopt the Swoosh, branding and outer sole. If you’re a fan of trail-ready-steez, or just like the utilitarian aesthetic, this might be the newest addition to your roster.
Since the announcement of the inaugural 991v2 at the start of October, New Balance aren’t planning on slowing down, with an all-new collab. Paying homage to the impeccable quality and style that both contributors possess in abundance, the ‘Pickle Beat’ iteration expresses a dynamic palette of grey, plum and neon lime. Taking notes from the alliance’s previous 990v3 collaboration, the fluorescent hue strikes again within the laces and midsole segments across both offerings. A silvery grey mesh forms a breathable base, overlaid with premium pigskin suede, emphasising the luxury steez. These kicks are clearly in a league of their own, providing stealthy style and unparalleled quality. What else would we expect from a duo so reputable?
Making up the remaining half of the ’06 Defining Moments Pack revival, the Air Jordan 11 Gratitude is available from this Saturday. The model is pretty much identical to the original, plus a few new features Premium leather takes the place of the ballistic mesh throughout the upper, whilst a glossy finish is swapped out for a patent flair. Grounding the iteration is a clean white midsole, situated atop a dynamic creamy outer. In alignment with the name, the model features text woven into the inner tongue. Depicting the words, Quality Basketball Product Created In Gratitude By The Greatest Player Ever, we’re grateful to the Jumpman enterprise for completing this iconic revival pack.
