We’re nearing the best sneaker releases this week, which includes another Converse x Neighborhood Chuck Taylor 70s collaboration.
Here’s a look at the drops you should keep a close eye on.
Up for grabs this week are familiar silhouettes from Adidas, Converse, and Nike, from a new refreshing colorway for the Adidas ZX 4000 4D and Yeezy 500 to a music-themed Air Max 90. Plus, Converse has two covetable iterations lined up – one draped in denim, and the other a sequel to the Converse x Neighborhood Chuck Taylor 70s collaboration sneaker. Find out how you can cop this week’s footwear drops below.
Adidas ZX 4000 4D “Easy Mint”
Among Adidas’ 4D runners, the ZX 4000 4D certainly wins for the most colorways released so far. Launching this Thursday, August 22, the latest “Easy Mint” rendition arguably edges out past releases as the colorway that’s easiest on the eyes. Featuring blue overlays and an electric mix of green shades on the uppers, the colorway goes effortlessly with the signature mint 3D-printed midsole. You likely won’t feel hard done by passing up on previous releases. But this refreshing take could well be worth a consideration.
Converse Chuck 70s Low “Denim”
Converse’s Chuck 70s are a true footwear staple, be it the high- or low-top. Now the iconic silhouette will arrive in a simple denim makeup, finished off with a clean white midsole and laces. Simplicity is the key, and for any sneakerhead that’s also a fan of denim, this should be an easy pick. Available in both the high- and low-top models, the sneaker drops this Thursday, August 22, at S$135 and S$125 respectively.
Where to buy:
Converse x Neighborhood Chuck Taylor 70s
Neighborhood and Converse team up once more for another collection inspired by motorcycle culture. The Converse x Neighborhood Chuck Taylor 70s, in particular, take after the 2017 collaboration with the return of the bulky leather forefoot straps, but this time in a murdered out black colorway. Made to withstand the rigors of motorcycling, expect a durable and aggressive-looking sneaker at a steal for S$195.
Air Max 90 “Vinyl”
Definitely an iconic sneaker to this very day, the Air Max 90 seems to have never gone out of style. With sneaker culture so entrenched in the music scene, Nike has lined up a pair that takes inspiration from vinyl records. Besides a unique Nike-branded record on the premium leather tongue, the sneaker arrives in a predominantly black mesh and nubuck upper riddled with textures that mimic a vinyl record. The sneaker’s colors come from the red hits on the upper eyestay and logo window, and an icy blue midsole stretching to the translucent outsole.
Where to buy:
Yeezy 500 “Bone White”
Kanye West is back with another sneaker release for the family. Landing this Saturday, August 24, the Yeezy 500 “Bone White” comes in adult (S$300), kids (S$200), and infant (S$150) sizes. Your kids will be the coolest ones in school if they rock up to class in these.
