It’s official! Spring is coming in strong, purging the last remains of winter; cold breezes are giving out their last breath, and we’re seeing this as well in the sneaker industry. With new warm weather oriented releases, sneaker giants hope to attract as much public as possible. Check out our curated list of 5 sneakers that caught our attention this week.
1. New Balance 580 “Deconstructed”
It’s celebration time in New Balance headquarters. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 580 silhouette, New Balance provides a “Deconstructed” release of the sneaker. There are three colorways available: red (suede), black (leather) and brown (nubcuk). All three versions come with laser-etched panels, tonal laces and a contrasting sole. Get them for $140 on Kith.
2. adidas ZX Flux “Solid Grey”
Ready for spring time, adidas pushes forward a Solid Grey theme for its ZX Flux silhouette. It comes with a grey painted knit upper overlaid by a skin-colored heel, toned with a tongue ornament. An off-white midsole along with side branding complete the picture. Get it on Afew for $108.
3. adidas Ultra Boost Primeknit “Rainbow”
The all-white adidas Ultra Boost was brilliant as it was originally released by the three stripes company, leaving little to no room for improvement. However, with the “Rainbow” release, adidas proved it can get even better. The colorful primeknit starting beneath the toebox and stretching to the side panels give a great color touch over the whole silhouette. No release date has been announced, yet.
4. Nike Kobe Mentality 2 “Wolf Grey”
A new addition the Kobe Bryant’s line has just been pushed by Nike. Outfitted in a “Wolf Grey” colorway, the latest Kobe Mentality 2 gets tuned up with Flywire technology for excellent elasticity. The sculpted rubber outsole ensure great performance on the basketball court. Get them on Nike for $100.
5. adidas x Raf Simons launches new Stan Smith colorways
We are talking about three colorways, to be precise: night marine, pink and blush yellow. All three pairs come with a perforated and tilted R on the panels along with the Raf Simons name engraved on the heel. Adidas branding is to be found on the sole. Get them on Feature for $400.
