Welcome to Sneakers News #55. We’re looking into the past and the future this week, kicking off with a pair of metallic silver Nike Dunks that looks particularly space-ready. Nike is placing emphasis on old favourites with the arrival of a retro Jordan 3 colourway that already looks like a classic and the continued revival of the Air Trainer 1. Elsewhere, New Balance has teamed up with Copenhagen’s GANNI and adidas is back making magic with Sean Wotherspoon.

Sneaker store CLOT is teaming up with Nike for a fine-tuned take on the Dunk that is immediately eye-catching.

New Balance x GANNI 2002R
Copenhagen designers GANNI deliver a playful twist on Scandinavian design in their latest collaboration with New Balance. All the functionality of the 2010s running show remains with the ABZORB midsole and N-ergy outsole cushioned silhouette but the print is where these shoes will catch eyes. Green, GANNI-print mesh panels collide with a sleek, cream upper while New Balance and GANNI share the heel each logo taking to the opposite shoe. Head over to New Balance on 13th April for your chance to cop.
Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘Light Smoke Grey and Honeydew’
The Air Trainer 1 from 1987 fits perfectly into the current sneaker climate, delivering a chunky, durable silhouette. These durable and futuristic sneakers have recently had a number of new colorways, but this is the latest. They pair iridescent accents with neutral tones, elevated by that forefoot strap. Nike is set to release them on 14th April.
Nike Jordan 3 Retro ‘Cardinal Red’
Any Jordan 3 with a pop of red is destined to be popular but there’s something particularly special about the ‘Cardinal Red’. White tumbled leather and the signature Elephant Print overlays come together with Cardinal Red midsoles and red sock liner. We’ve seen colourways like this in the past but the combination of the tumbled leather with Elephant Print and red is a particularly choice move.

They feature mesh and CORDURA materials with bright floral embroideries, a motif that has carried across a number of his adidas drops. These are on sale right now over at adidas.
Nike Dunk Low Premium ‘Fossil Rose’
By now you know the deal with Dunk Low drops. They’re hot property and are now beginning to amass an array of colourways this side of the 2020s. The latest is the ‘Fossil Rose’ which brings together Aura and Phantom nubuck overlays with a Fossil Rose swoosh. It’s a muted colourway that is likely to only increase its universal appeal.
