Nike Dunk High ‘Varsity Maize’

Nike spent the early parts of the year focussing on new colourways of the Dunk Low with great success but recently, the brand has turned its attention to the High. This week, we’re getting the 1985 silhouette in ‘Varsity Maize’. The yellow and black colourway blends black leather with varsity maize overlays. Like every Dunk drop this year, you’re going to have to be quick if you’re looking to cop on 12th December at Nike.

Ambush x Nike Dunk High

Another Dunk High that may be even harder to get your hands on. Nike is once again teaming with Tokyo-based label AMBUSH for a boundary-pushing take on the Dunk High. The silhouette remains relative intact apart for some key characteristics like the extended swoosh or embossed heal. Arriving in a strong black and white colourway, it’s likely to be one of this year’s most anticipated drops. Look out for it at Nike on 11th December.

Nike Air Max 3 ‘Archetype’

Nike is celebrating the Air Max 3 this week with a release that brings it back to basics. Most fans will know this silhouette as the Air Max 90 but when the silhouette debuted back in 1990 it was known as the Air Max 3. Nike is celebrating its heritage by returning to that name and offering a release that includes the original tooling plus a colourway complete with prototype detailing. It’s set to drop at Nike on 12th December.

They are all available from adidas right now.

ASICS x Pleasures NANDI OG

ASICS is having a good year of innovative collaborations and it continues that with this Pleasure collab. The LA streetwear brand has put its twist on the Nandi OG. The hero of the shoe is the iridescent ASICS logo but there’s plenty more to marvel at too including the accents of suede and branded toebox. The NANDI may have been initially designed as a trail shoe but this one looks too good to simply be resigned to the great outdoors. There are a few sizes still available to cop at Subtype.
