Puma rocks out the classic Ralph Sampson Lo for its debut collaboration with LA-based streetwear label Chinatown Market, which is known to inject some fun into its design.

Decked out in two classic colorways – black and white – the sneaker features a DIY-aesthetic that’s sure to be a hit among sneakerheads. It comes with three interchangeable velcro Formstrips – one in standard black or white (depending on the colorway), one in red, green and blue, and another in black and yellow checkerboard. If you’re looking to cop, local pairs retail at S$169 each, with END retailing at a slightly higher price point of S$179.

Adidas has gone full-throttle reviving its classic silhouettes for the new generation. Despite multiple remakes already, the iconic ZX series receives yet another iteration in the Adidas ZX Torsion. The new silhouette sees the brand pair the old-school chunky uppers with a modern split midsole that’s fitted with the revolutionary Boost cushioning and the updated stabilizing Torsion system. Different shades of sky blue, green and orange complete the desirable retro look of the sneaker. The Adidas ZX Torsion will retail at S$179. Hit the link below to enter the online raffle on END.

Air Jordan 1 Black Toe
July 12

The legendary Air Jordan 1 “Black Toe” colorway returns in low-top form this July. The color-blocking remains the same, but the difference is in the details. The Air Jordan 1 Low Black Toe features a mix of leather uppers and suede overlays with the iconic wings logo embroidered on the heel. While the hype isn’t at the level of its high-top sibling, the nostalgic color scheme could well be enough to convince you to snap up a pair.

Air Jordan 11 Retro Low IE Space Jam

Jordan Brand readies up the iconic “Space Jam” colorway this week, but on the simplified Air Jordan 11 Low IE model instead of the original. Nonetheless, the sneaker seems like the perfect everyday sneaker with its breathable and streamlined uppers. The patent leather details in this version are subtle, found on the cutout overlay across the uppers, which are finished off with smooth leather on the toe box. Let’s not forget the signature ice-blue translucent outsole and the concord-colored traction pods. If you’re a diehard Jordan fan, this is one iteration you wouldn’t want to miss.
