The bulky designer sneaker thing is literally everywhere this season and of course Gucci isn’t missing out on the trend. Gucci is experiencing huge growth for many reasons, it’s a favorite amongst the Hollywood/celebrity elite and their designs are distinctively gaudy in a way that stands out in today’s market. Their entrance into the sneaker category this season however is carefully balanced between luxury branding and minimal design. These leather low tops are featured a Logo flag at padded tongue and a padded collar for comfort. The Gucci Logo stamp is delivered in glittered gold-tone and the usual stripes in red and green printed at outer side. These will set you back  a pretty penny but for the ballers out there, the stunt factor alone may be worth it.

Available at SSENSE

I covered two of the upcoming Air Max 98s dropping last month. Now comes news of a couple new color ways. With the shoe’s 20th anniversary just around the corner, a couple more great models are dropping. First off is the ‘Fossil’ Air Max 98. These woman’s exclusives combine a simple cream/white color way with a classic black outsole. These are set to drop Feb 9 at Nike retailers online and in-store. Also dropping are a triple white color way for men that is one of the cleanest takes on the 98 to date and are dropping that same day.

The Nike Air Max 180 is a classic model that hasn’t gotten much attention in recent years. That’s about to change now with this COMME des GARCONS HOMME version which first appeared at last season’s Paris Fashion week. Official images of the sneaker have not been released and they are heavy on the pink. While not to everyone’s taste these will fit in with well with any full Comme fit. In total there are three variations on the sneaker. Check for them to drop at Dover Street Market, END and SSENSE.

Nike made a splash with the return of the Air Max 98 in 2016. The release of OG color ways as well as three colors for the collab they did with Supreme showed that there was a market out there for faithful recreations of the shoe. Now in 2018, Nike is releasing two great colors in celebration of the shoe’s 20th anniversary. First off is the tour yellow version pictured above and a bright blue/red released nicknamed “Gundam” which you can see after the jump. These look like they’ve kept true to the originals in terms of materials and should appeal to the segment of their consumer base who prefers faithful recreations to new iterations on the style using modern tech. I’m all for the 98 coming back and it’s looking like this year will net even more versions of the sneaker later in the year. Look for both these sneakers to drop at Nike retailers after Jan 17.

adidas will be releasing a clean EQT Support ADV in white and grey. The upper of the adidas EQT Support ADV Mid has a white knit upper with grey details around the heel. The shoe’s look is complemented with the standard 3 stripe branding and a white sole.  While it’s only been released as a low top in the past, this is actually a new mid version of the sneaker that deviates from the  standard EQT Support ADV silhouette. This new colorway will hit  adidas and other retailers in April.

The Vapormax was certainly one of the most popular new sneakers in 2017. After releasing the shoe in nearly every color way possible, Nike is able to move on and update the sneaker with a version 2.0 model.  An early preview reveals a black color way with a clear sole as we’ll as a tan version on the way. Expect these early next spring in a boat load of options. While not drastically different, if you liked Vapormaxes before you’ll probably get something you like here as well.  In other Nike news, their holiday sale is still ongoing with up to 50% off select items.

The Air Max TN is one of my all-time favorite Nikes and I’m really looking forward to Nike’s latest hybrid based on the sneaker. It’s paired this time with a Vapormax sole which ends up as a surprisingly good match for the upper. The upper has been styled in the look of an Air Max Plus, but it’s been remixed with modern materials and production tech. It’s rumored that these will release next year around Air Max day but there’s already plenty of leaks in terms of what we can expect in terms of color ways. Some of the models dropping include a triple black and triple white version, cool grey, as well as a multi-colored gradient version. My personal favorites might be the above Olive color way that gives off a slimy-looking iridescent green. These are certainly already on my radar and a pretty much a must-cop for me. Look for them to drop at Nike Lab retailers next year and click through for more photos.

 

Update – END has announced that they are releasing the triple black color way of these on Jan 25, so look for them to appear at other Nike retailers around that date as well.

Fans of the original ACRONYM x Nike Lunar Force will be happy to see that the latest iteration of the sneaker is getting a wider release. The shoe first appeared as part of Nike’s AF100 initiative and now the sneaker is set to release in the same all-white color scheme on December 3 on the Nike SNKRS app. As users have had trouble with the app over recent releases, I’ll be sure to update the post if other stockists are announced. More pics of the sneaker after the jump.
