Paying tribute to Joe Sheridan and his 1943 introduction of Irish Coffee, Saucony took the iconic Shadow 6000 running silhouette and painted it in three distinct colorways. Inspiration was drawn from the key elements of a proper Irish coffee: coffee, whiskey and cream. Clean midsoles and gum outsoles are the foundation for a buttery suede upper. Release date is 1st December 2015 while the price tag rests at $120.


2. K1X and Alpha Industries mix military and sports within “O.D” pack

There was only one way a sports brand could mix up with a military equipment manufacturer, and that is by creating a piece of footwear which is all about attack and defense. Reworking the Anti-Gravity sneaker by K1X b-ballers, the team added an military-like olive colorway over the dual-EVA midsole and foam lining. The sneaker also features all high-end technology that ballers are accustomed with. Get them on Titolo for $150.


3. Hanon x ASICS 25th celebration of GEL-Lyte III

Taking another shot at the night-sky design it had before implemented on Asics silhouettes, Hanon took advantage of the 25th anniversary of the GEL-Lyte III to come out with “Solstice”. Blue suede and purple nubuck can be found on the upper along with 3M overlays and reflective branding. Get them on Hanon for $197.


4. BAIT x Bruce Lee Collaboration

Nothing screams Bruce Lee like the bright yellow on the latest Colorado 85 silhouette. Designed to honor the what would have been Bruce Lee’s 75th anniversary, BAIT took the Colorado 85 and added black leather tiger stripes over the yellow nubuck upper, all resting over the speckled EVA midsole. Get them on 27th Nov for $160.


5. Billionaire Boys x Adidas Stan Smith

Although it was almost game over for the brand a few years ago, Billionaire Boys recovered thanks to Jay-Z and it is now collaborating with the famous adidas Stan Smith division for a most-premium release including pony hair upper with leather lining. Dubbed “Desert”, the pair is available on adidas for $200.
