As a part of its spring/summer 2017 collection, Visvim offers up this low-cut moccasin. The Miliseet Shaman-Folk features a TPU heel stabilizer and hand-stitched bead detailing. The shoe is constructed of quality suede with a distinct fringe detail. The sneaker is available in Camel, Navy and Red at Idol Brooklyn.
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. A limited online allocation will be made available at 7PM PST that day on the HAVEN website but look for these at select Consortium dealers like END and online on Adidas store as well.
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.
Adidas is back with another Raf collab but this might be one of the best color ways yet. While the Ozweego has faded a bit into the background with all of the new releases Adidas is putting out each week, this ozweego comes in a really clean toned down color palette. In addition the team at Raf has placed some typographic design details around the sneaker along with a subtle logo hit. Get these now at Revive Michigan.

Photos of these have circulated around blogs and IG for a few months now but finally a release is imminent. Errolson Hugh took to IG today to announce the launch through the ACRNM website which has already sold out. The shoe takes on the familiar Air Force One high and adds a compression strap and a zipper upper sleeve that covers parts of the shoe. The craftsmanship on these looks excellent but clock do cost a fair bit more than a normal Air Force One coming in at 250EUR. If previous releases are any indication expect these to pop up exclusively online through Nike Lab and wholesale accounts.
I’m a huge fan of tan suede sneakers so it was no surprise that I liked these Air Unlimiteds as soon as I saw them. The high-top basketball sneaker has been reconfigured as a clean tonal colorway. Minimal branding is present on this pair and the best part may be the cream colored midsole. These will go fast so get these over at Nike Lab for $180.

Natural tan leather has been creeping into so many sneaker colorways this year but this clean execution of a Vans slip-on is too clean to pass up. Vans released a pack of Vachetta tan sneakers using it’s classic models such as the Era, the Slip-On and the Old School. The obvious reference to Hender Schemes comes to mind when you see these, however these are just a fraction of the price.
You can get these directly from Vans.
