This week is pretty big for Yeezy collectors.
It’s barely a week since the launch of the Yeezy Boost 700 “Wash Orange”, but Adidas and Kanye are already back, this time with a very different silhouette in not one, but two colourways.
Across the fence is Chitose Abe and his wildly imaginative reinterpretations of Nike icons. This time, however, she left the LDWaffles alone, instead tweaking the Blazer Low in three funky color variations.
Meanwhile, those who can’t wait for the spooky night of October 31st will enjoy this year’s deceptively sweet Air Force 1 special. If you’re a big fan of the outdoors, there’s a pair (or two) of Chuck Taylors made just for you.
Here are the best cop sneakers this week.
sacai x Nike Blazer Low
When: October 22, 2021
Shop: Nike SNKRS
Price: $ 199
Currently one of Nike’s hottest collaborators, Sacai’s Chitose Abe knows no boundaries when it comes to putting her mark on her iconic sneakers. This week, she takes over the Blazer Low by offering a remix in three different versions: Your britishm, Magma Orange, and Classic green.
Whichever you choose, expect the shoes to sport white layered midsoles and its iconic double lacing and double tongue details. The leather upper will see the usual exposed foam linings of the Blazer, as well as bold accents inspired by the original colorways of the Blazer.
Undefeated x Converse Chuck 70 Mid
When: Available now
Price: $ 150
One of streetwear’s most legendary sneakers is getting the hit this season – literally. The iconic Chuck Taylor All Star, recognizable by its high top, gets a light cut this season by Los Angeles sneaker store Undefeated to create a mid-rise silhouette. The sneakers are then rendered in the retailer’s signature tiger camouflage print in two colorways – Desert and Forest – to create a shoe worthy of both the street and the wild outdoors.
Nike Air Force 1 Halloween
When: October 21, 2021
Shop: Nike SNKRS
Price: 209 USD
It’s not exactly a scary season until you’ve carved your pumpkins and unboxed your annual Air Force 1 special. This year the sneaker comes in a seemingly nondescript black, white and orange colourway, but turn off the lights. and intimidating eyes gaze at you from its premium black leather upper.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Stone Salt” and “Pyrite”
When: October 18, 2021
Price: $ 370
After a sold-out Yeezy Boost 700 “Wash Orange”, Adidas continues its momentum with the Yeezy Boost 380 in two colors ready for fall: “Stone Salt” and “Pyrite”.
“Stone Salt” is the darker of the two, with a black-based upper that is accompanied by various shades of gray camo pattern throughout. “Pyrite” sports a lighter shade of dusty gray that’s also accented by digital camouflage patterns, and is finished with a chalky midsole that complements the shoes’ understated colourway. Both shoes feature full-length BOOST cushioning for ultimate comfort.
