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 Nike Air Max 1 is a no-brainer all year round, partly due to the immense plethora of colourways and reimaginings available. Just like our wardrobes, the AM1 is shifting its appearance to adapt to colder seasons, arriving in a ‘Medium Olive’ colourway that’s perfect for autumn. Following in the footsteps of the model’s current less-is-more persona – a white and grey upper with coloured suede mudguard – this iteration keeps things tastefully minimal. The modest green hue floods the mudguard as well as the inner lining, whilst a blacked-out Swoosh co-ordinates the outsole, Air unit and eyelets.
Continuing on the Air Max wave, next up is the Nike AM95 ‘Hyper Turquoise’. When it comes to boasting vibrant palettes, the 95 does it best. This iteration is no exception, exhibiting an immaculate contrast of monochrome hues with a tiffany-esque turquoise. A mesh netting adorns the upper; sat atop an array of white-to-black stacked overlays. The eye-catching hue is communicated via the lace hoops, tongue branding, Air unit, and of course, the Swoosh, for a stealthy look that’s effortlessly cool.
As mentioned above, the Air Max 95 model does not play when it comes to bold colourways. Proving my point once again, is the AM95 ‘Reverse Neon’, dripping in contemporary steeze despite the sneakers’ retro heritage. Initially dropping as a JD-exclusive, these kicks turn up the voltage with an electric palette of black, neon and grey. A durable rubber outsole ensures ease within every step, not to mention the padded ankle collar for even more comfort.
Arriving in two refined palettes ideal for a minimalist ‘fit, Auralee is back with a New Balance collaboration that’s simply genius. Debuted at the Tokyo label’s Paris Fashion Week runway, the alliance takes on the timeless persona of the NB 1906R in a ‘Bone White’ and ‘Flint Stone’ colourway. Both iterations boast an enlarged-mesh base, garnished with distressed suede and tumbled leather panelling throughout the upper. Keeping the silhouette secure is a glossy heel counter, adding another textural dynamic to these immaculate kicks. Wrapping up this banger of a collab is an aged finish across each textile, providing a sleek retro vibe that we just can’t get enough of.
The Awake x Converse One Star Pro Ox collaboration is the definition of ‘never say never’. Despite the arrival of the partnership landing this Thursday, the seeds of the offering were first sewn all the way back in May 2018. It was then that the founder of Awake NY, Angelo Baque, expressed via Instagram the cancellation of four One Star x Converse collaborations, leading enthusiasts of each contributor to assume this would be the first (and last) of their relationship. Five years later, and the duo have announced not only one collaborative One Star Pro, but three, alongside an apparel capsule. Within this ‘Black’ iteration, plush suede dominates the upper, also featuring Awake’s emblem across the sidewall. Minimal enough to be versatile, iconic enough to speak for itself. It’s got the thumbs up from us!
Around this time last year, rumours began to catch fire surrounding Travis Scott’s future endeavours with the Jumpman enterprise. Despite the uncertainty of the claims, if there’s one thing we know for certain. The devil works hard but sneaker leakers work harder. Proving our point, the Travis Scott x AJ1 Low OG Golf ‘Neutral Olive’ drops this Friday! This subdued palette works atop a ‘Neutral Olive’ suede base. Smooth ‘Sail’ leather overlays dress the silhouette’s exterior, complimenting a touch of ‘Light Lemon Twist’ branding within the tongue and heel badge. Additionally, the midsole incorporates the Swoosh’s exceptional Air technology ensuring comfort with every step. Despite the sneaker’s Golf nature, we’re expecting to see these kicks in more places off the green than on it.
Landing as part of Jumpman’s holiday 2023 retro collection, the Air Jordan High ‘Mauve’ is on its way to bring the heat to your winter rotation. Aligning with the ‘Sky J Mauve’ hue adopted by the sneakers’ low-top predecessor, the two-toned palette brings a sophisticated aura to the table. The ‘Mauve’ shade floods the pristine leather overlays, as well as the Swoosh, laces, tongue branding and outsole. The crisp white base provides the perfect canvas for the tone to pop, allowing for easy and versatile styling.
What’s better than two collaborators? Three collaborators! So, what is the result of a dynamic partnership between Patta, FC Barcelona and Nike, you might ask? An red-hot Air Max Plus, saturated in Barcelona’s signature colours for a gradient design that just gets it! ‘Rush Fuchsia’ and ‘Deep Royal Blue’ hues melt throughout the upper, beneath classic black caging. Complemented by black accents within the laces, inner lining and outsole, this iteration reps each contributor within the small details. The Patta badge sits proudly on the tongue whilst the FC Barcelona crest rests on the laces, concluding this innovative offering.
