When you think you’ve seen it all, come check us around. It’s Monday, so we’ve come back from our Internet surfing session and brought to you 5 sneakers that stood out this week and caught our attention. We’ve got at least one new name on the list, so check it out and let us know what you think!
1. UBIQ’S X CLARKS TRAXTER “URBAN EXPLORER”
We got a new alliance on our hands right here. In order to celebrate the urban ruins from Philadelphia, local UBIQ shop teamed up with Clarks to provide a sneaker designed to fit every urban explorer’s needs. A premium black leather base layers nicely with camo printed elements on the rear quarter and heel. A light cushioning and guaranteed durability are achieved by using Ortholite footbed along with EVA and Vibram rubber. Available on ubiqlife for $180.
2. Nike Air Huarache Skate Shoe
Although it has been sidelined for almost a decade, Tinker Hatfield’s creation from 1991 is now used by Nike in all the possible ways. Although it’s not the first time for Nike to steal some features from the Huarache and add them to their skater line, we do like the model. Ventilated side panels and heel support give uniqueness to the model.
3. ASICS GEL LYTE V “TIE-DYE” PACK
The main difference between these two sneakers in the Tie-Die pack is like night and day, literally. You can opt for the day dye colorway, with light gray base and red inserts, or the night dye colorway, featuring a combination of black and orange. Get it on Rise for $110.
4. AIR JORDAN 5 “MIDNIGHT NAVY”
The Jordan brand goes back to where Michael Jordan’s roots are, in Carolina. These sneakers feature a Midnight Navy base along with accents of Turquoise fall. Mustang fighter-like jet teeth are placed on the midsole and the original 3M tongue returns along with this model. Available on eBay for around $220.
5. Adidas Originals Color-Shifting Cromatech
Xeno was the first, now adidas comes around with a color-shifting treatment called Chromatec. It works by contracting and expanding the material, each change producing a new color. Given the change depends on how the shoe is worn, an unique spectrum of colors will be released, making each shoe one of its kind. The SL Loop racer got the treatment, and comes into three base colorways: gold, black and purple.
