With Nike pushing the VaporMax so hard, it’s nice to see these exclusive Nike Lab color ways. The first is a nice black and olive looking combination titled “Cargo Khaki” . The second “Tea Berry” colorway of the shoe features light purple on the sole. The unique color blocking on both sneakers elevate these past the GR VaporMax colors that had been dropping.
Both colorways of the NikeLab Air VaporMax will be available online and through select Nike Lab on June 20 for $190 USD.

Wood Wood and Asics team up for a Gel-DS sneaker that leaves an impression.

Sneakers with sock uppers were trending pretty heavily last year. While the look got a little stale, Adidas has brought out a new model that might breathe new life into the genre. The primeknit material is one of Adidas’ most popular considering it’s light weight and comfort. This upcoming model boasts a seamless upper in marled burgundy, a bright red accent at the heel tab, a sock-like collar. The same UltraBOOST heel counter, full-length BOOST midsole, and Continental outsole that appear on ultra boost lows re-appear here. Look out for new release info on the sneaker coming soon.
While Salomon has not really been on the map when it comes to designer fashion, these Speedcross 4 trainers are one of the most interesting sneakers to release this year. A collaboration with Boris Bidjan, these sneakers come in several color ways with this distressed white variation being my favorite. Key details on these include the discolored textile upper, tonal ‘quicklace’ lace-up closure and logo patch at padded tongue and tonal treaded rubber sole. Scoop these up over at SSENSE.
Haven adds to Adidas‘ long list of collaborators on this upcoming Ultra Boost. Instead of doing a simple color flip the team at Haven has opted to make substantial changes to the design. There are reflective strands running through the lacing along with perforated paneling on the Primeknit upper provide an unique accent. Branding is minimal outside of a woven tag at the top of the toe.
The adidas Consortium x HAVEN Ultraboost will be releasing in-stores at HAVEN Toronto & HAVEN Vancouver on April 1st, at 11AM local time on a first come, first serve basis.

If you’ve been wanting something with a Boost sole but are tired of the ultra-boost, this offering from Y-3 should fill that gap nicely. The Pure Boost returns in this this clean white iteration; complete with fused panels, a gusseted tongue and a sturdy heel cap. Available at East Dane for $320.
The team at Guerrilla Group has helped style the clothing in a new video from Nike. Director Yuen Hsieh partnered with famous singer and fashion icon Chris Lee in this stylized hi-tech visual. Taking inspiration from sci-fi and the idea of time travel, the short clip juxtaposes her character’s own life journey with 30 years of evolution in sneakers starting from the Air Max 1 to the new Nike Vapormax.
