adidas ZX Flux All White
adidas’ version of the Roshe Run has been a fan favourite since its release at the start of 2014. It has been released in a variety of colours and designs in its young lifespan, but the all-white rendition will definitely be in everyone’s sneaker closet this year.
adidas x Rick Owens Superstar Ankle Boot White Bone
For those that have an eye for quirky high-end sneakers, these are the best-looking leather boots. Rick Owens has always put his signature unique twist to all-time favourite designs and this time, he has done it again using the famous adidas Superstar textured rubber sole as his subject. He has converted the famous ‘shell top’ into a luxury leather boot. This expensive taste does come with a steep price but you won’t be seeing these being frequently strutted down the streets.
adidas Ultra Boost Triple White
This was created and self-proclaimed by adidas as ‘The world’s greatest running shoe’. It is the sneaker of the year. And no, it’s not because of the hype generated by Kanye West, but for its unmatched levels of design, detail and comfort. Adidas has backed up their claim that would even convince the most sceptical within the sneaker community. The flexible textured primeknit upper is the prominent feature that lies on its renowned BOOST and TORISON support system. The sock-like fit shapes to the individual’s foot and expands as it moves, giving it a custom feel and fit. Adidas has been killing it with their heavily marketed BOOST innovations and this sneaker has been at the forefront with good reason. It is a must-have for a sneakerhead’s closet for the upcoming ‘all white season’ – a term coined by the social media community.

The iconic vintage Air Force 1. The all white colourway has been a popular choice since its inception in 1982. It was the first basketball sneaker with Nike Air Technology.
