Adidas Originals Campus ’80s Suede
It’s never easy being the younger sibling, especially when your elders are the immensely popular Superstar and Stan Smith. However, the Adidas Campus is stepping out of the shadows, returning in three OG colourways and with newly added vintage debossed side-branding.
Available at Size?, priced £75.
Clarks Nature IV
On paper, a leather-knitted-bootie hybrid sounds like a bit of a Frankenstein of a shoe. Yet, Clarks manages to pull it off with a very modern update of the British footwear powerhouse’s Nature profile. Introduced more than three decades ago, the trainer now boasts a new sportier shape, moisture-wicking technology and added comfort thanks to a bouncier rubber sole.
Available at Clarks, priced £95.
Yeezy Boost 350 V2
What’s a man to do when he’s already dropped the most hyped sneaker of the year, and it’s only February? Crank it up a notch. Kanye’s latest release will be exclusively available via the Adidas Confirmed app. No giveaways, no raffles, no Instagram sneak peeks and no competitions. Just a battle to the checkout for the new Zebra version of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2.
Available 25 February via Adidas Confirmed app, priced £150.
Clae Bradley Light Pink
It’s almost March, which means Spring is about to, well, spring. It can be tempting to celebrate the return of warmer weather with a pair of box-fresh white sneakers. However, a far more on-trend choice is these buttery soft pink court shoes from Clae’s banger-packed SS17 assortment.
Available at Clae, priced £100.
NikeLab Air Max 1 Pinnacle Blank State
More than 30 years after the first Air Max was unveiled in 1987, the game-changing technology hasn’t tired one bit. Taking things back to basics, Nike has started again with a blank canvas and stopped there, leaving sneakerheads with little more than a clean, all-Sail colourway and that iconic heel unit.
Available from 23 February at Nike, priced £110.
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Modern East VS West
When in the market for a basketball-inspired shoe, it doesn’t make much sense to look any further than the king of the court – Converse. Marking the NBA All Star Weekend, the US brand has unveiled its latest rework of the Chuck Taylor All Star high-top; complete with star-spangled uppers made of reflective-backed mesh.
Available at Converse, priced £95.
Puma X Patta OG Puma Clyde
Take a bite out of this. Puma’s latest tie-up with Amsterdam-based sneaker boutique Patta is a re-work of the classic Clyde sneaker in an orange and biscuit colourway. The mouthwatering makeover comes together with rich nubuck uppers, a soft leather lining and Puma’s signature formstripe. Tasty.
Available from 25 February at Foot Patrol, priced £85.
Asics Tiger Gel Kayano Knit
The trend for 1990’s goods shows no sign of slowing, so props to Asics for updating one of its most sought-after designs of the decade. The Gel Kayano keeps the traditional lacing and heel construction but gains a bold cage overlay and a sock-like knit for a result that gives other crocheted competitors a run for their money.
Available from 24 February at End, priced £119.
