Nike x Lebron James Air Force 1
Behind all the hype for sneakers is the power they have to convey a story. Flipping the script, Lebron James and his athlete empowerment brand, Uninterrupted, have partnered with Nike to produce a sneaker that allows you to tell your story. The classic Air Force 1 is the canvas of choice for this collaboration, which takes its signature white colorway and livens it up with royal blue on the outsole, insole, and laces. The words “I Am Uninterrupted” run along the uppers in matching colors. Now here’s where things get fun: the shoes come with two markers for you to really make them your own. And thanks to the reflective 3M heel and Swoosh, your story is sure to be in the spotlight even at night. Cop this and let your feet do the talking. The sneaker retails at S$215 each.
Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 Retro
Yet another Travis Scott-Jordan collaboration hits the shelves this week. This time, it’s the Air Jordan 6 Retro silhouette the rapper has been teasing at live shows and Instagram. The court-ready sneaker comes in an olive colorway with glow in the dark rubber outsoles. Besides the premium nubuck uppers and toggled lacing, the sneaker also has two pockets, one on each lateral side – a feature you never thought you’d need on a sneaker. But with a retail price of S$409, you might be expecting more than that.
