Footwear drops: A week of classic and quirky releases

We’re back again with the roundup of footwear drops this week.

Nike x Cactus Plant Flea Market

Stealing the headlines is the upcoming Nike x Cactus Plant Flea Market Air Vapormax 2.

This week’s list of releases features the bold and the classic. Besides the wild Nike x Cactus Plant Flea Market collaboration sneaker and the otherworldly Nike Mars Yard Overshoe, we also have classic drops from Diadora and Adidas in the mix. And let’s not forget Travis Scott’s big Air Jordan drop this week too. Scroll down for the details.

Nike Mars Yard Overshoe
May 9

Nike Mars Yard Overshoe

The Nike Mars Yard Overshoe designed by artist Tom Sachs truly takes the Nikecraft journey to another level. Here comes a boot-like sneaker stitched over the ever-elusive Mars Yard 2.0. But while its appearance is otherworldly, its functions are made specifically for the elements closer to home – harsh, rainy, or winter weather. This explains the water-resistant Dyneema bag covering the entire upper of the sneaker, along with the robust SFB midsole. Among other cool details, the S$799 sneaker also features magnetic Fidlock buckles for easy adjustments and a precise fit.

Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1
May 11

Travis Scott Air Jordan 1

The question now is, who isn’t copping Travis Scott’s latest collab with Jordan brand? Delivering Jordan’s first signature sneaker this time, the rapper added his own personal touches like the hard-to-miss reverse Swoosh, minimal branding on the mid-panel and insoles, and the face logo embossed on the heel. The craziest part? It has a mini concealed pocket on the inside of the collar. Enter your chance to cop on the END Launches raffle or simply check out the full list of retailers in the link below.

Adidas Consortium x Alife Nizza Hi

ADIDAS CONSORTIUM X ALIFE NIZZA HI Nike x cactus plant flea market

Minimal, stripped back and classic: you can’t go wrong with the Adidas Nizza Hi. The German brand teamed up with skatewear stalwarts Alife to give us a sneaker worthy of the streets. This tonal rendition looks familiar at first glance, with subtle revamps like the oversized logo on the side panel and co-branding on the tongue tab. The skate brand also pays tribute to its roots with subtle details such as “1999” on one toe and “2019” on the other. The sneaker will retail at S$165.

Nike x Cactus Plant Flea Market
May 14

Arriving next week, the Nike x Cactus Plant Flea Market Air Vapormax 2, priced at S$349, is sure to be one of the most covetable sneakers this month. This rendition truly energizes the silhouette with its bold two-tone Air soles and large text across the side panels. Perhaps the most iconic part of the sneaker is its green Swoosh made of garden wiring. Truth be told, you can’t possibly get a louder sneaker than this. Nike.com will release the sneaker on May 14, while DSM Singapore has pushed back the drop to May 16. Besides the online links for you to cop below, DSM Singapore will also run an online raffle which opens Monday, May 13 at 5pm until the following day at 5pm.
