11 of the best sneakers of December 2018
One of the most popular Air Jordans of all time finally returned for holiday season 2018. Details like an OG-style higher patent leather mudguard meet the notorious color combo of White, Black and Concord Navy. Furthermore, a printed “45” replaces the “23” on the heels of the sneakers.
Known for their high profile collaborations with stores from the US to Japan, New Balance branched out into new territory. For the Your ID x New Balance 574 Barista, the brand teamed up with a Brazilian store on a premium project.
Most Nike collaborators are lucky to get their own colorway on an existing silhouette. But Jerry Lorenzo obviously isn’t “most Nike collaborators”. The Air Air Fear Of God 1 is an entirely new silhoutte, uniting performance inspirations with luxury streetwear aesthetics.
Sneaker collab experts CONCEPTS already designed two amazing “Lobster” SB Dunks for Nike. In December, the store released the next installment with the CONCEPTS x Nike SB Dunk “Purple Lobster”.
Now that’s dedication! To give back to their community of die-hard supporters, Diadora released a limited N9000 exclusively for members of Diadora Talk. Great move – and a great colorway too.
For his latest joint project with Nike, A-COLD-WALL*’s Samuel Ross reworked the classic Air Force 1 Low. Next to his signature design language, the two colorways also feature Nike’s sustainable Flyleather material.
Back in 1988, Saucony announced the Azura OG as a shoe for people who are “tired of running shoes designed by marketing teams and not research teams.” 30 years later, the brand now reissued their classic model in its OG colorway.
