Jordan 11 Premium Grey suede
We must be coming into the silly season, because Jordan is just going crazy with their premium releases. This time they have brought us the cult-favourite Air Jordan 11 silhouette. The all-grey premium suede upper sits on a clean, all-white midsole and translucent outer sole. The luxury continues with the premium leather laces and the iconic Jumpman logo embossed on the outer heel. These are limited and as yet have only been released at Kith Brooklyn and Concepts NYC, hopefully we will see a few hit our shores soon.
Nike SB Dunk Velvet Red
Nike SB have gotten into the Christmas spirit with their latest Dunk release. Featuring swathes of red velvet, the entirely red velvet upper sits atop a white midsole. The festive red outer sole is then finished with a tartan patterned insole. While these feel plush on the foot and will be a hit at your next Christmas party, they are not up to skating like other pairs of Dunks. Grab them from Nike Online.
Nike Flyknit Racer Blue Tint
Nike has released many colourways of the Flyknit Racer of late, but their latest blue tint has to be one of my favourites. The Flyknit upper consists of a lighter and darker blue woven throughout with a white swoosh, on top of an original Racer midsole. These are one the better general releases of the year and a must grab for swoosh fans, pick them up from Nike Online.
New Balance 997.5 Black/White
This week, New Balance have brought out what I think is their best general release of the year. The 997.5 silhouette features the upper of a 997 sitting atop the REVlite midsole of the 998 shoe. This 997.5 has an all-black upper made from suede, mesh and leather with a white speckled black midsole and translucent outer sole. This is a perfect black and white colourway to wear with any outfit. You can pick these up from New Balance retailers like Hype DC.
