In this blog, we’ll focus on some of the best trainers that are dropping this summer.
Nike Air Max 93
Nike’s evergreen Air Max series had a new addition earlier in eth year when they re-issued the 93 version. The 93’s take styling cues from the Nike Air Huarache around the collar and adds a massive visible air unit in the heel. Find the all the colourways here.
Originally designed and launched in 1993, the Aztrek hasn’t been in production since their original run, but they’re back. These asymmetrical styled runners feature Reebok’s Hexalite cushioning system in the heel and are available in the original colourways. A 90s classic reborn.
Adidas Continental 80s
The Continentals are a tennis shoe originally released in the 1980s. They mark a departure from classic Adidas Originals of the era in that they don’t have the iconic three stripes.
Adidas ZX500 RM
The Adidas ZX range has long been a favourite of the street trainer connoisseur since their launch in 1984. This version takes the classic ZX500 silhouette and puts it on top of the Adidas Boost midsole, creating a shape that blends new and old. Available in two colourways we think these will go on to become classics.
Converse x JW Anderson Chuck 70 Grid
Converse Chuck Taylors are one of the oldest trainers around, with the original design being launched over a hundred years ago. This doesn’t mean that they are old news though because Converse keep sprucing up their classic design with new design cues. This particular version is the result of a collaboration with British designer Jonathan Anderson. Taking the classic silhouette and adding his own twist to the uppers as well as two pairs of laces these versions are an unusual version of the classic cons high tops.
Nike Air Safari SE
These first dropped in 1987 and was the first Nike trainer to feature the now ubiquitous safari print. These are the third time Nike has reissued the shoe, first in 2003 and then in 2012. This reissue, however, offers the original colourway with its stunning safari print. Buy these, put them in a safe place, wait a few years and you’ll be sitting on a safe investment.
With the World Cup this year, as usual, Adidas have been busy with everything to do with that with new balls and boots that comes with sponsoring the tournament. However, those boys and girls at Herzogenaurach in Bavaria have been busy working on some other brand-new things too. This all new trainer blends the latest Adidas designs with classic football trainers of the past. Taking the sole shape of the Kamada but with a herringbone grip pattern, offset laces from the Predator football boots and the upper design from the primeknit Sambas the shoe is unique. Add on a modern stylised three stripes and you have a completely modern trainer with nods to trainer classics of the past. These are sure to be a sought-after shoe and are undoubtedly a future classic. Get a pair while you still can!
