This week, Nike drops the ISPA Overreact Flyknit, a comfortable lifestyle sneaker with a recycled Flyknit upper.
Also made sustainably is the Adidas Ultraboost DNA x Parley sneaker, with its Primeknit upper made from recycled plastic bottles.
ISPA Overreact Flyknit
Nike prioritized comfort when designing the ISPA Overreact Flyknit. To stay true to that mission, it removed elements that added weight or hindered comfort. It did away with the Strobel board and insole, resulting in direct contact between the feet and the React foam in the shoe, so the feet feel all the comfort. Made sustainably with a recycled Flyknit upper, the sneaker comes with hook-and-loop straps for easy slipping on and off.
Twisted Resort x Converse Runstar Hike
Twisted Resort takes the Chuck Taylor inspired Converse Runstar Hike and gives it an extraterrestrial spin. The main attraction of this high-top is the canvas print on the upper, which depicts an alien abduction set on the backdrop of a cowboy desert highway. A statement piece for the adventurous sneakerhead.
Where to buy:
Parley x Adidas Ultraboost DNA
This week, Adidas is releasing a variant of the exclusive Parley x Adidas Ultraboost Uncaged that first dropped in 2016. The new Parley x Adidas Ultraboost DNA comes with fewer embroidered waves on the upper and two colorways to choose from. It does, however, retain the same construction seen on prior Parley Ultraboosts, sporting Primeknit uppers made from recycled plastic bottles and bright blue detailing for added contrast.
Air Jordan 1 High OG “Light Smoke Grey”
Dubbed an alternative to the Union x Air Jordan 1, the Air Jordan 1 Hi OG “Light Smoke Grey” sports a similar two-tone colorway. Pairing a red leather ankle collar with grey suede overlays, this sneaker gives off Union vibes without the astronomical resale prices. It is also part of Nike’s line of Air Jordan 1 Hi OGs, which means it has a silhouette that closely resembles the original 1985 Air Jordan 1.
New Balance 327
New Balance is bringing four new colorways of the 327 to Singapore! The most notable colorway of the lot is the 327 SFA, which receives a neon green base accented with orange and grey suede panels. If you love vibrant and comfortable sneakers, these need to be top on your pick-up list.
