From Dior to Air Jordan, these are the styles on our never ending trainer wish list!
This is where we show you some of the best kicks that are out at the moment – from general releases to exclusive drops.
1.) B23 HIGH-TOP SNEAKERS IN DIOR OBLIQUE
Starting pretty expensive on this list, the Chuck Taylor / Converse inspired silhouette from Dior is coming in at No.1. Costing a sheer £830 retail price, this shoe really does say a lot.
The B23 sneaker bridges the gap between urban sportswear and high-end fashion; The upper comes in a Dior-monogrammed canvas with a semi-transparent overlay that enhances durability and adds a futuristic feeling for the shoe. The shoe has a heel tab at the back to avoid the shoe from squishing down when putting it on and has bulky patches on the mid-sole to enlarge the base of the sneaker. Finished off with a Dior patch on the midsole, this shoe really is a divine creation.
If you have the money to purchase this shoe – then definitely go for it. However, the silhouette is very similar to other shoes; you can recreate the silhouette with a pair of converse, or if you want to re-create the transparent effect you can buy a pair of Nike React 87s, which do this very well.
2.) Jordan 1 Retro High Pine Green Black
With this Jordan 1 drop being one of the most anticipated Jordan drops of the year, there is no doubt that there is an unbelievable amount of hype around this shoe.
Dropping on the 3rd of march at £130, this shoe is a must for any Nike/Jordan fans.
The clean, high top silhouette of the Jordan one is a timeless classic. First popular back in the 80s, the Jordan One is back and better than ever in this Pine Green and black colour-way. The retro shoe is made from silky tumbled leather, with the green and black panels contrasting each other to perfection.
This shoe is a sneakerhead’s dream.
The classic Jumpman’s signature winged basketball motif is stitched across the ankles, and rounding the shoe off with an Air infused midsole, to keep the comfort levels at its maximum.
These J’s are a suave and sexy addition to any sneakerheads rotation.
3.) Nike Air Force 1 Low Supreme White
When it comes to collaborations with Nike, Supreme is a frequent brand who often brings out new items every season. With this Nike collab, Supreme has decided to design the universally loved and consistently trending Air Force 1.
With this collaboration, Supreme has let the shoe do most of the talking. They have added a box logo onto the side of the shoe and added Supreme covered laces to complete the look.
Find them at Supreme stores and online come March 5th at a surprisingly reasonable retail price of £75. Supreme also stated with these shoes that they will be a recurring product through their seasons, similar to their boxers, socks and Hanes T-shirts that are always out on every season.
4.) Nike Air Force 1 Lv8 Trainers – White White Sail Black
These new Air Force 1 ‘DNA’ Trainers are a great new take on the classic White on White Air Force 1.
If this was from off-white collaboration, everyone would be losing their minds over it. The shoe has a really clean style; you can’t go wrong with airforces and this is a really nice twist on the plain white silhouette.
The shoe has a deconstructed upper; a chunky silhouette with a clear synthetic Swoosh instead of the usual leather one. A white rubber outsole and exposed foam tongue is also used to give the shoe more personality and character.
This shoe is a must-buy for all sneakerheads, only costing £100 retail. Get your hands on this shoe whilst you still can!
5.) Nike SB X Travis Scott
From the frequent collaborations with Nike over the past few years (the Air Force 1, the Jordan 1 and many more) It was only right that Travis would come to collaborate on another part from Nike – the SB Dunk lows.
Painted in a tanned and navy colours, the biggest and most noticeable thing about the shoe is the bandana pattern that goes across the entire upper section of the shoe. Leather then makes its way to the side of the shoe; making up the swoosh and the toe box, with a tartan print which is also featured to make the shoe even louder than it already is. Either shoe has a different colour swoosh, with a “CACTUS JACK” tag that is stitched onto the tongue, finalising the design.
With the shoes first Appearing in his music videos from his “JACK BOYS” album, Travis Scott has been teasing these shoes for a while. They dropped on the 29th of Feb, for £115, but undoubtedly sold out. Now, depending on size, you can get these shoes for roughly £900 on Stock X.
