Air Max 1 ‘Strawberry Lemonade’

The Air Max 1 gets a sweet reboot this week with the Strawberry Lemonade colourway.

adidas x Jonah Hill ‘Samba’

Jonah Hill has made it pretty clear that he’s nostalgic for the ‘90s. 2018’s ‘mid90s’ film was a basically a love letter to the decade and now he’s reviving a classic adidas shoe with a ‘90s twist. His take on the Samba was inspired by his childhood influences and features a DIY aesthetic complete with a handwritten Samba logo. It drops in three different colourways on adidas at midnight on 14 November.

Yeezy QNTM ‘Teal Blue’

Kanye West may have not been successful in his presidential bid but he’s still got plenty of work going on with his Yeezy sneakers. The Yeezy GNTM was only launched this year and this is only the second colourway to be released to the public. It’s a bold shoe made up of intersecting colourways with black crossing with white, blue and teal. Like most Yeezy shoes, it features the Adidas BOOST cushioning meaning it’s likely to be a comfy cop. The shoe is available in-store only at Subtype.

It’s a fresh white shoe with a platinum grey swoosh, keeping things simple and clean. Keep an eye on Sneakerboy and Up There Store on November 13th. Both retailers are selling them via raffle.
