We have been seeing the Adidas Yeezy 700 V3 “Alvah” on the feet of Kanye West and Jon Wexler for months. This week, the triple black take on the sneaker is finally dropping in Singapore! Nike has its own fire releases lined up, with the women’s exclusive Air Jordan 1 Mid “Multicolor”, Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Caged 2 and a second drop of the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Court Purple” hitting stores. Scroll down to check out all of this week’s releases and how you can cop.
Air Jordan 1 Mid SE W “Multicolor”
Drawing clear inspiration from the “Blue The Great” collaboration, the Air Jordan 1 Mid SE W “Multicolor” uses a myriad hues to create an eye-catching retro sneaker. The sneakers’ upper is a bold combination of yellow, purple, blue, orange and green set atop a wide mix of mesh, patent leather and suede. The sneakers will come in mismatched pairs, bringing an asymmetrical quirk to any fit.
Dr. Martens 1460 x Sex Pistols Boot
Dr. Martens celebrates the punk culture that adopted the classic British boots as part of their aesthetic through a special collaboration with the Sex Pistols. The collab perfectly captures the disruptive energy of the iconic band. The boot’s smooth black leather upper is embossed with attention-grabbing prints on the forefoot and heel. With “God Save The Queen” and Anarchy printed on the heel and laces, the Dr. Martens 1460 x Sex Pistols Boot embodies the rebellious attitude of punk culture.

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Court Purple”
Though the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Court Purple” first launched on the Nike SNKRS site last week, the sneaker is set to have a second release this week – this time on End Launches. The shoe shares the color blocking of the “Chicago” colorway but swaps out the red for purple. The sneaker originally launched in 2018 to mark MJ’s “royal” status on the court. Get a closer look at the sneaker here.

Adidas Yeezy 700 V3 “Alvah”
Ye is back with a new drop, and this time it’s the triple black take on the Adidas Yeezy 700 V3 – the “Alvah”. The sneaker’s upper is constructed from monofilament engineered mesh with a glow-in-the-dark RPU cage laid over it. The organic-looking runs down the outsole of the sneaker. The overall shape of the sneaker follows that of the 350 V2, retaining the signature look of Yeezy sneakers. Instead of Boost, the Adidas Yeezy 700 V3 “Alvah” has encapsulated EVA for a comfortable stride.
Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2
Right off the back of the Stussy x Nike collaboration, Nike is re-releasing a bunch of Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2s in a slew of colorways. This “Silver Bullet” colorway is reminiscent of the color palettes seen on the OG sneaker launched in 2003. The performance-focused runner is constructed from lightweight mesh, a synthetic support cage and jaw-dropping heel Air Zoom unit. You can learn more about the various colorways here.
Above The Clouds x Asics Gel-1090
In celebration of their 10th anniversary, Above The Clouds has partnered with Asics to release a special pair of Asics Gel-1090. The sneakers come with a prototype, high fashion aesthetic. It has a neutral birch base with transparent logos on the sides of the sneaker and suede heel cap. Sketch-like overlays adorn the heel cap and toe box, with ball-pen blue stitching and prints. The sneaker draws inspiration from their Latin ethos ‘Amina Sana in Copore Sano’, which translates to ‘Sound Mind, Sound Body’ in English. A clear reference to the quote is seen on the tongue, with “Mind” and “Body” written on each side.
