Sneakers to release this weekend - from April 14th to 17th, 2017 From the Nike Air Uptempo to the Jordan

It is always interesting to see how fashion designers approach sneakers and are able to rework an iconic silhouette or invent a new design from scratch. Lately we saw a lot of relevant designers challenging themselves in the sneakers-field. Last but not least Alexander Wang that recently popped up with a new adidas collaboration. The American designer is giving his personal vision of the adidas Boost technology and it seem to be working really well with the audience. Back in the world of sneaker purists, Jordan Brand that up to these days was too often enshadowed by the most hyped drops is striking back. The Air More Uptempo also are living now a new golden age.

Air More Uptempo "Triple Black"

Thanks to the "retro" releases last year and this year Supreme collab. the Air More Uptempo will be one of the most representative sneakers in 2017. And what could be the best way to consacrate an iconic sneaker if not making a "triple black" iteration? That is actually going to happen. The only difference between these and the classic Uptempo colorway is that the white piping of the "Air" lettering has been replaced with black M3 reflective: simple but effective. That's the reason why they can be also nicknamed Air More Uptempo "Reflective". 

Nike PG1 "Hyper Turquoise"

A simple silhouette and a simple color scheme for a great sneaker. The material selection definitely brings this shoe up. The sneaker reminds a lot of the Atmos aesthetic that was brought to a new life by the Air Max x Atmos "Elephant". The sneaker features a suede and mesh mix on the upper, while the withe midsole has a lite black speckling. The "Hyper Turquoise" sole makes its appearance from below the midsole with a surprising effect.

Alexander Wang x AW Run

The American designer keep showing his personal interpretation of the Boost. In this case the midsole cushioning system is very similar to the one which can be found on a Ultraboost model. The upper is in full-primeknit. The sneaker also features a unique lacing system to adjust tightness and ensure the best comfort. This special lacing system includes a drawstring on the heel that allows the possibility of an extra regulation. The colorways available for these sneakers will be: black, off-white, light grey, red and also royal and gum. 

adidas Originals by AW skate shoes

Minimalism rules supreme in these plush leather skate shoes. Designed in collaboration with adidas Originals, a stripped-down monochrome upper is paired with a tri-color rubber outsole. Made of ultra-soft suede, this shoe is finished with a goat leather heel lining.

Nike Air Jordan 11 Low "UNC"

The sneaker pays tribute to the place where Michael Jordan moved his first steps in professional basketball. The University of North Carolina. The "University Blue" was used by Jordan Brand in various releases through the years, but now, after 16 years from the original release dated 2001, the 11 Low "UNC" return. The only update will be a soft alteration of the color shade from the original one.

Nike Air Jordan 31 "Oreo"

Today the sneaker culture is all about lifestyle, so it's easy to forget about performance trainers. So here they are. These new Air Jordan 31 are meant to be stylish, but yet functional on the court. The shoe feature a wowen toecap with a pink-hinted gradient coloration and an Air Jordan 1 inspired smooth leather heel. The midsole features a black gum that put the accent on the icy gum outsole.

Nike Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit "BLACK"

This minimalist masterpiece from the mid 80's is back after almost 3 years of absence from the market. Air Sock Racer are a bold example of what "avant-garde" design means in the running shoes design industry. The shoe will come back in a colorway that is totally inspired by the original one, in the tones of black, yellow and white.
