1o of the best sneakers of November 2018
After unveiling their Jordan 1 collab by selling the shoes at a flea market, the two sought-after Union LA colorways finally dropped last month. Both styles take inspirations from vintage goods and reference the late 80s and early 90s.
German sneaker boutique Afew recently revealed the sequel to one of their greatest collabs. Following 2015’s “Koi”, the Afew x BEAMS x ASICS GEL-LYTE III Orange Koi now released two years later. It reprises the original design of the regular Koi but switches the red accents for a bright orange tone.
Ironically enough, the “Not for Resale” Air Jordan 1 currently fetches rather hefty resale prices in the second market. One would have thought that Nike would produce a fair share of pairs to meet the demand, but obviously that wasn’t the case. A pretty interesting sneaker nonetheless.
Last month, heads who wanted to finally wanted to pick up a pair with Futurecraft technology had another chance. The Three Stripes brand launched this clean white colorway of the adidas ALPHAEDGE 4D in November.
The ASICS GEL-KAYANO 5 was the cover star of our October 201 issue for a reason. To celebrate 25 years of the Kayano series, ASICS brought back this classic 90s runner.
Probably one of the most anticipated releases of the year, VANS’s NASA collaboration finally launched in November. Featuring tumbled leather upper upper with the NASA logo and “John F. Kennedy Space Center” lettering, the Old Skool was a fan-favorite since the first images appeard back in spring. [Pic via @dirtymoney823]
Following their recent joint collab with solebox on the GEL-LYTE III, atmos again teams up with ASICS on the classic model. The atmos x ASICS GEL-LYTE III World Map features a striking all-over print that gives the shoe a unique appearance.
When Mizuno relaunched their classic Wave Rider 1 back in spring of this year, it served as a kickstarter for the Japanese brand’s new lifestyle category. After several celebrated collaborations, the sportswear powerhouse now reintroduced another original colorway last month.
When it comes to anniversary sneakers, it’s usually to celebrate the anniversary of a certain silhouette. But dedicated to Micky Mouse, the latest Disney x VANS Authentic depicts one of the most legendary cartoon characters of all time.
