Reebok x Bodega NPC
Boston sneaker boutique Bodega is one of the hottest places on the US East Coast to find the latest drops. To celebrate turning 10, the store has teamed up with fellow American powerhouse Reebok on a special edition of the NPC.
And because of the special relationship and all that, the trainers – with full blue suede upper, gum sole and embroidered star heel details – have made their way across the pond.
Available at Hanon, priced £79.
Fenty Puma By Rihanna: The Creeper Camo
After the last batch of creepers from Rihanna’s Fenty Puma line sold out in half an hour, the singer had to get to work (work work work work) on a follow-up.
This time she’s back with an orange and black camouflage iteration, finished off with burnt orange laces and the distinctive thick gum sole for a sneaker that will do anything but blend in.
Available from 28 July at ASOS, priced £100.
Fendi Monster Eye Runner
Fendi’s latest footwear drop looks set to be a monster hit. The Italian superbrand has pulled together a patchwork of Italian leather and soft suede into a runner shape, tricked out with its signature monster eyes.
The model is capped off with an evil spike to the heel (enough to keep anyone from standing too close on public transport). Go on, they don’t bite.
Available at Harrods, priced £495.
While no one can deny Geox shoes offer pavement-pounding comfort, the brand’s designs haven’t always been achingly stylish.
However, it’s all change at the Italian firm. With a new style-focused approach the brand is turning out designs like the Warrens trainer, which combines soft suede with Geox’s innovations in breathability and cushioning across no less than nine colourways.
Available at Geox, priced £90.
Adidas Originals Archive München
Despite being released in 1982, the München from Adidas Originals only made it out of Japan for the first time last year – talk about delays.
Luckily, little about the highly collectable style has been lost in translation with the second UK drop, which holds on to the same slim profile, premium suede upper and stippled midsole in two new colourways.
Available from 29 July at Size?, priced £70.
Pro-Keds Royal Lo Camouflage
There’s some new Keds on the block, and they’re seriously cool. The basketball shoe that was first introduced in 1926 and favoured by top NBA players in the 1970s is every bit on-point today.
Case in point: camouflage versions of the canvas Royal Lo, complete with go-faster blue and red ‘powerstripe’.
Available exclusively in store at Hanon, London, priced £75.
Nike Kobe XI 3D
Anyone alive in the 1990s will remember strapping a pair of flimsy cardboard specs with red and blue lenses to their face. Nike’s game-ready Kobe XI applies the retro-inspired 3D graphic to an update of the 2011 Kobe VI.
Along with the red and blue upper, the trainers also feature an icy semi-translucent outsole and alternating tongue and heel details.
Available at Nike, priced £130.
Vans Monochromatic Pack
Vans turned 50 this year, but the original name in skate culture isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
The Cali-brand continues to find new ways to remix its iconic styles, like this new tonal take on the 1978 Sk8-Hi in colour-block suede and canvas, finished with a handy heel zip.
Available at Vans, priced £59.
