It’s finally getting hot in here! April just walked through the door and brought the long sought-after warmth. Time to get light sneakers and walk, run or skate over the dry asphalt. Here is what big sneaker makers around the world are proposing this week, combining trends with Easter Eggs and tonal colorways.
1. New Balance “Pastel 878” Pack
New Balance doesn’t waste any time preparing for the Spring Summer 2016 and delivers 3 pastel colorways of the 878 runner shoe. Built from dusty suede sustaining a mesh upper and highly cushioned soles, the Pastel 878 pack features mineral pink, cornflower blue and mint cream colorways. Available on Feature for $110.
2. PUMA Blaze of Glory Sock Core
It seems that chunky sneakers are the ones the market is looking after, and PUMA takes advantage of the situation. The latest rendition of its Blaze of Glory silhouette comes in three colorways: all black, all red and creme. Textile and leather are composing the upper, suede is found on the toe box while the chunky outsole enlarges the sneaker. Get it on Caliroots for $125.
3. Concepts x New Balance “City Rivalries”
Celebrating the huge rivalry between New York and Boston’s baseball teams before the first ball has been thrown in 2016, Concepts and New Balance teamed together to provide a sneaker for each side. The 998 silhouette takes the side of Red Socks with red and grey suede, while the New Balance 997 pushes a mix of light green and silver. Expect them on April 9th.
4. Converse Chuck II Knit Pack
Entirely ready for spring, Converse mixes the best between comfort and style, boasting a set of four high-top and four low-top Chuck II Knit silhouettes. Lunarlon sockliner, padded tongue and suede lining ensure a comfortable wear while monochrome eyelets and black, volt blue, red, white and spray paint blue colorways score high for style.
5. Givenchy “Active Line”
Luxury sneaker maker Givenchy launches into a new style of sports-oriented footwear by releasing Active Line running sneakers. Rebuilding the classic athletic footwear, these sneakers come with a leather upper, nubuck and mesh. Of course, the icing of the cake is the $600 price tag which should make you think twice before wearing them for a marathon run.
