WINTER SNEAKER DROPS 👀
By Amelia Bell, 27 October 2020
With an OG 70s running trainer as the inspo, Reebok's Classic Legacy model has become an iconic silhouette synonymous with that 3D sculpted look, with a classic suede finish, chunky sole and a signature deconstructed logo thrown into the mix for good measure. Usually cropping up in all kinds of bright colours, this month we’ve got an exclusive and extra special new style to introduce you to 👆 These just-landed lovelies have all the vintage vibes we're used to with Reebok Classics, but with a low-key pastel colour palette for something that feels a lil more 2020.
Nike Daybreak-Type SE recycled canvas trainers, £89.95
ICYDK, ‘Move To Zero’ is Nike’s latest campaign, aiming to take waste and turn it into something new – like kicks. By using and reusing recycled materials, the brand has switched up some of its most iconic and sought-after styles (the Nike Air Force 1, the Air Max 90 and the Daybreak-Type) and has created fresh designs in the process. The latest arrival? The Nike Daybreak-Type SE. With a soft blue midsole, stitched Nike Swoosh and muted shades, these are the kinda kicks that go with everything: from knitwear to joggers and everything in between. Better yet, they've been made from industrial waste fabrics, like part-recycled Flyleather and canvas. Looks good, does better.
A lil history recap for ya 🤓 Back in 2003, Asics created a pair of sneakers called the GEL-1090. Originally inspired by the dynamic design seen on high-performance motorbikes, they were all about function and featured a gel-like cushioned heel and mesh layered with leather to help improve speed. Now though, as well as being comfy and practical, these iconic Y2K trainers provide the kinda dadcore dreams you'll want to pair with whatever you're wearing – cos what's fresher than lime green and silver?
adidas Outdoors urban hiker in beige, £110
Hiker styles are still very much a thing RN. Ideal for the outdoors and cooler climes, the latest offering from adidas are the best mix of functional walking gear and new-season vibes, meaning you can wear them when you're actually hiking or (more likely) to look real fresh while you're taking a casual stroll 😉 Just add: the brand's hike trousers, an oversized puffer jacket and your finest knitwear.
PUMA RS-2K trainers, £95
You can recognise the RS-2K style from a mile off... PUMA’s forward-thinking kicks are all about bright colours and bold shapes. Taking style cues from all things high-tech and futuristic, this new pair comes with the same iconic layered, wavy upper and lightweight (read: comfy) EVA midsole but in an all-new colourway. So, if you like your sneakers tech-savvy and max on comfort, look no further...
