adidas Forum Low 84

The adidas Forum made its return last year in super limited quantities but it’s finally having a wider release. First arriving on the scene back in 1984, adidas is gearing up the Forum to be one of its signature shoes this year. The first wide release of the Low comes in two colourways – stark white and white and royal blue. It’s a simple, everyday basketball shoe elevated by that iconic X-strap ankle design. Expect to see plenty of these on feet this year. They’re available to buy right now.

Nike SB Dunk High x Carpet Company ‘Royal Pulse’

Nike has teamed up with Baltimore-based brand Carpet Company for its latest Dunk High collaboration. Carpet Company has taken creative liberty over the shoes, updating and re-arranging plenty of details. The upper showcases a semi-translucent blue layer in a nod to the brand’s screenprinting roots but as the shoes wear and tear, the fabric will peel away to reveal a new yellow layer with unique illustrations. They’re the shoes that will just keep giving and they launch on 3rd February at Nike.

Nike Dunk Low ‘City Market’

While the Dunk has mostly offered up simple, two-colour iterations, the ‘City Market’ explores a much busy design. Paying homage to the brand’s Blue Ribbon Sports as well as industrial rice and coffee bags, this Dunk is a collage of inspiration. There are plenty of small details to check out too. The tongue houses a small, zipped compartment resembling a grocery bag while the tag has been reimagined as a nutrition label. The shoes showcase Nike at their most imaginative. Get ready to pick them up on 4th March.

adidas Craig Green ZX 2K Phormar II

Iconic British fashion designer Craig Green has brought his imagination to the ZX, giving it a fresh spin. Unlike the regular ZX silhouette, these feature a super-thin speed lacing system and tension cords on the eyestay, collar and heel. There’s also a boost-cushioning and a semi-translucent midsole. Above, you can see the all-white colourway but you can also cop them in black.

New Balance x Casablanca 327

French brand Casablanca has been instrumental in making the New Balance 327 one of the must-have shoes right now. It returns with a third collaboration, this time giving the shoes a pastel-heavy, patterned update. The star is the monogram design on the upper but special shoutout also goes to the pastel pink around the ‘N’ and the green sole. Get ready to cop on 5th March on New Balance or enter raffles at Subtype or Up There store.

Puma Suede Classic XXI

Puma Suede Classic XXI

Puma is banking on heritage revival with its run of Suede Classic XXI releases. A staple of the sports-shoe era, from Walt “Clyde” Frazier on the basketball courts in the ’70s to the early NYC b-boy crease of the ’80s, the low-top has always been visible, but now Puma is going hard with the classic shoe. The brand has launched a new campaign with UFC star and ambassador Israel Adesanya.
