Best Sneakers of September 2018 - Afew x KangaROOS COIL-R1 Mighty Forest
Afew x KangaROOS COIL-R1 “Mighty Forest”
Once again, German sneaker store Afew and KangaROOS teamed up for a collab. But apart from delivering a beautiful shoe, the Afew x KangaROOS COIL-R1 Mighty Forest also raises awareness for forest protection and use.

Nike Air Max 1 “By Day”
When Tinker Hatfield came up with the design for the Air Max 1 in 1987, he drew inspirations from the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The building’s unique architecture influenced the idea of visible Air cushioning and the shoe went on to become a true Nike classic. Last month, the brand took it back to the start with this special makeover Air Max 1, one half of the “By  Day / By Night” pack.

La MJC x ASICS GEL-LYTE III “Rebirth”
First released in 2008, the original La MJC GEL-LYTE III easily is one of the best ASICS collabs ever. To celebrate the shoe’s 10th anniversary, La MJC and ASICS released this super-limited “Made in Japan” premium version.

ROOS were on a roll in September! Next to Afew’s “Mighty Forest” COIL-R1, the brand launched another premium collab with a European sneaker boutique. The Footshop x KangaROOS Ultimate 3 “The City Of A Hundred Spires” draws inspiration from the city of Prague and its unique architecture.

Overkill x Reebok Club C “Bückware”
As an homage to Berlin in the mid-80s, Overkill worked typical wallpaper, tablecloth and floor patterns into this Club C. The nickname “Bückware” (which means “bottom-shelf goods”) refers to a GDR a term for sought-after commodities which were often traded only beneath the counter.

Best Sneakers of September 2018 - Nigel Sylvester x Air Jordan 1
Nigel Sylvester x Air Jordan 1 
BMX pro Nigel Sylvester put much of his own riding style into this collab with Jordan Brand. Most notably, the scuffs on the upper reference him using no brakes and instead of that using his shoes to slow down the bike.

Footpatrol x adidas Futurecraft 4D
Being able to do a collab using adidas‘ Futurecraft technology still is almost like knightly accolade in the sneaker world. After Stockholm’s Sneakersnstuff and Taipei’s Invincible, the Footpatrol x adidas Consortium 4D saw one of London’s most notable sneaker boutiques design their very own Futurecraft sneaker.
