The simple beige colorway dubbed ‘Acorn’ has finally made a return. A grail for my OG Nike AF1 collectors, it still looks as good as ever. The low AF1 features a canvas and buffed leather upper.  The sneaker also features a padded collar and a grained leather Swoosh appliqué at sides.

New Balance serves up a breakfast themed sneaker with this egg inspired 992. Breakfast is one of PaperBoy Paris’ favorite meals, and the café partners with New Balance this season to celebrate that. Naturally, the theme Is egg related, and the sneaker of choice is the much-loved 992.

The references are clear, too, with the pigskin suede uppers designed to mimic a fried egg, starting with yellow at the eyetsays to gradient hues of white underneath. The model’s tech underpinnings are untouched, though, with ENCAP® and ABZORB® in the sole for unrivalled comfort and support. As always the build quality on these made in the USA editions are top notch.

Available at END, Nicekicks and if you miss the drop StockX.

Model number M992PB1

The Nike Air Max Plus is a sneaker I can’t get away from. It’s just such a striking design but it varies a lot colorway to colorway. I’ll usually spot one or two a year I’ll want to add to my collection and this one definitely is in that category. It’s a simple gradient design with a hit of sliver on the heel and a green outline on the midsole and swoosh. Definetly one of my favorite Air Max releases in recent history.

It’s available through eBay.

The last time <a href=”https://www.patta.nl/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Patta </a>and <a href=”https://www.newbalance.com/men/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>New Balance</a> teamed up they released a 920. Now their first sneaker in 2021 together uses the New Balance 991 model. It’s got a look inspired by terracotta clay and uses suede to mix in the colors of a light peach to a grey and jade green mix. Lighter tan overlays also make their presence felt through the overlays attached to the forefoot and heels as well as the lower heel mold. The patta branding on the sneaker is noticeably subtle with only a embrodiered text hit towards the back heel.

Retail price for the pair hasn’t been confirmed yet, but these are slated to drop at the end of the month on January 29. Look for retailers who carry Patta like <a href=”https://www.endclothing.com/ca/brands/patta” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>END </a>to have the sneaker for release.

Designer sneakers are suffering a bit of an identity crisis as expanding collaborative programs at Nike and Adidas have given designers more creative freedoms with their one-offs than they have ever had before. Prada channels their minimalistic heritage and combines it with 3D elements that give the silhouette a unique futuristic look. The sneaker has a few standout features that give the Collision its unique look, they include the three dimension rubber elements on the upper and the tubular cotton laces. The sole also looks like a futuristic cleaned up version of an Air Max. All in all, the sneaker is just fresh enough without screaming for attention. It’s available at Prada and Farfetch.

Nike hasn’t shown the Air max 97 a lot of love in 2020 but this subtle variation on the model is on the way later this year.  The “light bone” colorway takes away some of the flashiness we tend to associate with the Air Max 97 with a muted pale upper that contrasts with an all black sole and midsole. The simple two tone style just works and will be releasing later this year at select Nike stockists.
