Covid-19 may have pressed pause on daily life, but it clearly has not stopped Kanye from dropping his latest sneaker on time. This week, Ye is dropping his triple black rendition of the most popular Yeezy sneaker – the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Cinder”. The monochrome sneaker is a much more wearable version of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Desert Sage” that dropped last week.
This week also sees the second drop of the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 827. These sneakers sold out in seconds last week, making this second wave of drops very welcome. Not included in this list is a set of three previously sold out Air Jordans making their return on Nike SNKRS, which you can check out here. Besides those Jordans, scroll on to check out the other sneakers dropping this week.
Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 827
This sneaker first dropped on March 13, and sold out instantly. But here is your second chance to cop a pair of these highly coveted 90s runners. Designed with the intent of staying true to the original 827, the sneaker retains the white mesh and colorful accents of the OG sneaker. The sneaker first launched in three different colorways, but only the yellow colorway will drop this week. You can learn more about the sneaker here. The Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 827 drops again on March 19 for S$215.
Where to buy:
Nike Air Max 1 “London”
The Air Max 1 gets a city-centric colorway, this time drawing inspiration from London. The sneaker captures the unique colors of the British capital, from grey on the uppers and heel cap, to navy on the Swooshes and brown accents under the heel. “LDN” printed on the tongue tab above the Swoosh and Air Max branding reaffirms the inspiration behind the sneaker. You can cop Nike’s nod to the iconic city for S$269 on March 19.
Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Cinder”
The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 is one of Kanye’s most recognizable creations. Its shape and design changed the sneaker world, with many brands dropping similar silhouettes soon after. After the attention-grabbing “Desert Sage” dropped last week, Ye is releasing a more wearable colorway, the “Cinder”. The sneaker receives an all-black treatment with the only hint of color coming from the gum outsole. The sneaker follows in the “Earth” colorway’s footsteps, with an opaque midsole – so you can’t see the Boost. You can cop a pair of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Cinder” for S$349 on March 21.
Air Jordan 4 “Neon”
As a nod to the Air Max 95’s OG colorway, the Air Jordan 4 “Neon” uses a gradient of grey fabrics to recreate the iconic look of the 90’s runner. Up top, the sneaker gets a white sock liner that is surrounded by a light grey suede. The next suede panel comes in an even darker shade of grey before we get to the black suede mudguards that outline the uppers. The outsoles get the suede treatment as well, with black suede surrounding the Air unit. Hits of neon green on the eyelets, tongue tab, Air unit and outsole provide a pop of color to break the monotony. You can grab these OG-inspired Air Jordan 4 “Neon” for S$355 on March 21.
