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.
The Year of the Dragon is truly alive within the Air Jordan 1 Low OG. Kicking things off, the upper sports a ‘Sail’ leather base, complimenting ‘Oil Green’ scale overlays that span from the mudguard to the heel counter. A shimmery red Swoosh accentuates the laces, tongue tag and the embroidered Wings logo within the heel. Injecting an element of royalty into the silhouette, a gold hue chimes in at the heel tab and tongue branding, whilst silver adorns the lining and semi-translucent outsole.
Four months after its debut, the AJ2 Low ‘Python’ is finally here! Landing as a sleek concoction of the Air Jordan 2 and Air Force 1, this hybrid creation exudes lifestyle appeal with a hint of Jumpman edge. Expressing a crisp white hue amongst the perforated upper, these kicks inherit a squeaky clean persona. Hits of grey adorn the tongue badge and inner lining for subtle contrast, ensuring that the snakeskin segment has space to really stand-out. Finished off with an aged ‘Sail’ midsole, this shoe is the key to smart sneaker style.
Ever since taking the reins of NB’s MADE in USA division, Teddy Santis has breathed new life into the brand with his timeless aesthetic and a slew of dynamic collaborators. In Season 5, he continues to expand on the storied heritage of the revered 99X series. The curtain rises with the ‘Grey’ Pack, showcasing the 990v6, 990v4, 998, and 996 in a symphony of style and innovation.
December 2023 marked the debut of a new sneaker silhouette from the Swoosh – the Nike Lunar Roam. Boasting an innovative cushioning system known as ‘Lunar Foam,’ this silhouette seamlessly blends comfort and performance, harking back to its late 2000s roots. Crafted from breathable mesh, the shoe’s upper is accentuated with TPU detailing on the toe and heel for durable style. Following the success of the initial ‘Alabaster‘ release, we’re suspecting a big year for this sleek model.
In a colourway that couldn’t be more apt for winter, it’s the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Beef And Broccoli’. The comical name draws inspiration from a Chinese dish that is particularly popular in New York. Designed with green and brown tones, the iteration utilises chunky suede, mesh and leather uppers with a black midsole. The tongue, heel and insole display subdued Nike branding, for a laid-back aesthetic. It’s the perfect sneaker for beef and broccoli lovers (and great for vegetarians too!).
Continuing on the path of last year’s AJ13 wave, the latest colourway ‘Blue Grey’ is in arms-reach. Boasting a colour-blocking structure that’s reminiscent of the OG’s, a tumbled white leather dominates the side panelling, helping to accentuate the iconic quilted finish. Blue distressed suede enters at the heel and lower for an icy persona, sat atop the panther paw-inspired outsole. Of course, it wouldn’t be an AJ13 without the classic holographic eye that sits at the heel, which showcases a stunning green hue.
Landing as an updated slice of UK sneaker heritage, the Nike Shox TL Chrome is landing with a stealthy steez. Just like its predecessors, this silhouette’s construction maintains everything we love about the Shox TL. Flaunting a mesh upper alongside the classic TPU caging, the shoe opts for a crisp white exterior throughout aside stealthy metallic hits. Soft leather panelling within the front and back emphasises the icy flair of these kicks, also reflected within the ‘Silver Metallic’ Swoosh. Of course, it’s not a pair of Shox without the intricate pillars, keeping unparalleled comfort and ease wherever you choose to step.
