Air Jordan 14 Retro Ginger
Taking inspiration from Michael Jordan’s Ferrari F355, the Air Jordan 14 was introduced in a low-top Ginger colorway in 1999 and remains one of the most distinctive and defining versions of the classic Nike sneaker. Now it’s been updated, with the Air Jordan 14 Light Ginger offering a mid-top form of the sneaker with a gold nubuck upper mixed with a white leather forefoot overlay. With encapsulated Zoom Air cushioning elevating the Phylon midsole and angular tooth-like detailing, it’s a gorgeous, well-crafted gift for Air Jordan fans that should easily grab the attention of even the most laid-back sneakerheads. .
New Balance MADE in USA 990v2 Castlerock
So fresh and so damn clean, the New Balance 990v Castlerock is one of our favorites from Teddy Santis this year, dropping towards the end of August with a simple and incredibly warm aesthetic. There was a time when the 990 was considered the best running shoe on the market, and Santis is clearly bringing some of that glory to his latest creation as part of his ongoing New Balance project. Center pivot Aime Leon Dore contrasted this deep gray with an off-white finish that hits plush ABZORB midsole cushioning, making this sneaker the perfect balance of form and function.
Air Jordan 36 Luka Doncic El Matador
The Air Jordan 36 line skews Spanish with El Matador, paying homage to Dallas Mavericks baller Luka Doncic whose nickname gave the kicks their identity. As one of the most unique iterations of the Air Jordan 36 we’ve seen in years, this is definitely a sneaker for those who like to keep a wildcard on their weekly list, complete with gold lace tips and a fiery red outsole inspired by tradition. bullfighting costumes.
adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 Turtledove
This distinct cookies and cream upper is making a comeback after quickly selling out when the Turtle Dove colorway launched in extremely limited qualities in 2015. Now one of the most popular 350 V1 colorways sees its big back, with all the original design cues that made this stunner one of Ye’s most acclaimed releases. It was reissued at the beginning of August, so you will already have a hard time finding the sneaker. If you’re a Yeezy Boost fan, it’s well worth picking up a pair of these daily drivers.
thisisneverthat x New Balance 1906R
Slight imperfections and creamy midsoles help give this brilliant New Balance collab a charming, distressed aesthetic that brings something different to this underutilized silhouette. A collaboration with Korean streetwear brand thisisneverthat, this version of the 1906R was released towards the end of August and upon its announcement was an immediate hit for sneakerheads looking for a left-turn from New Balance. There’s nothing not to love about this heavy, metallic colourway, using clever little shades to help create a world of detail.
