1. Nike Roshe Flyknit PRM Black and White
The already famous Nike Roshe Flyknit silhouette got a new black and white colorway. Featuring black on black upper made of leather and Flyknit, this premium sneaker provides a great color contrast thanks to its clear white midsole. Swoosh branding can be noted on the sides of the leather inserts. Available on SneakerPolitics for $130.
2. Packer Shoes x Diadora “Purple Tape”
Paying a tribute to what is seen as one of the best albums ever, Raekwon’s “Purple Tape”, Packer Shoes teamed up with Diadora and came up with a pair of sneakers named after the iconic rapper’s album. Premium suede and leather have been used in building the sneaker, with co-branding on the tongue and the year 1995 tagged alongside. These sneakers will be exclusively available on SOBs on August 20th.
3. Nike Huarache Run PA “Light-bone / Radiant Emerald Canyon-Gold”
When the name and the picture says it all, there are hardly words to add. These sneakers are done by mixing leather, neoprene and other synthetic elements, allowing a knit pattern to stand out near the toe box. The bone shaded construction features gold and emerald nuances, contrasting with an overall white on the top and midsole. Available on Titolo for about $159.
4. New Balance “Deconstructed” 996
Since New Balance is on the wave of reinventing some of their classic running silhouettes, a new rendition wasn’t surprising.

Get them on SneakerBaas for about $140.
