AUGUST'S BEST NEW SNEAKERS
By Steven Potter, August 4, 2020
A hybrid of two different Nike models, the 270 Air Max React is one of the brand’s comfiest kicks. Combining their super-squishy React-sole tech with 270-degree Air Max cushioning, you get twice the tech in one on-point sneaker. Also, in terms of wearability, this super-fresh white, gray and blue colorway is at the top of the pile.
Converse have gone big on summer vibes with the release of the iconic All Star Hi in some eye-popping tie-dye colorways. With psychedelic designs ruling menswear for another summer, if you’re looking for statement kicks that also score big on summer 2020 trend points, well, you’re looking at them. The tie-dye pack includes four colors including the above with two styles available in the low-cut All Star Ox models.
Yep, you might have seen black and gray Vans kicks a million times before, and if you’re wondering why the old favourite has made our new-kicks round-up, it’s because this one has gotten a very comfortable update. Yep, the classic Era is the latest member of the Vans family to embrace the 'ComfyCush' technology, a mix of squishy foam and rubber that gives you extra grip and more comfort. Perfect for curb-surfing or, you know, just taking a stroll.
An absolute British icon, the Reebok Classics Leather has been a sneaker-style favorite since the 90s. The main difference between the Classic Leather and the Classic Leather AZ above is that angled heel design. It’s modeled after retro running shapes – perfect if you want your new kicks to have that throwback edge.
Overblown sneaker styles are definitely here to stay, but as we head into late summer/early Autumn, pumped-up kicks are going into overdrive. So, if you like your sneakers larger than life, check out this ASOS DESIGN pair made all the more OTT by the cleated contrast sole. Even though these kicks might be statement-sized, that triple-white colourway ensures they’ll still match pretty much everything you already own.
