Once again here to showcase the most sought after sneaker drops in the next coming days.

The Sneaker of The Week – Saucony Original Grid SD “Pumkin Spice”

Head into majority of coffee shops, you will find the pumpkin spice latte as the main attraction as Autumn hits. This year Saucony pays homage to the seasonal drink with the “Pumpkin Spice”.

Burnt orange leather and suede combine on the upper of the Saucony Grid SD silhouette. The perforated tow box in suede, is coloured in cream, which is supplemented by metallic orange detailing on the laces and premium pigskin sockliner. Colours from the latte, right down to the cream and syrup to top it off, have been utilised by Saucony, as well as drawing inspiration from the bold hues autumn brings. Saucony have really created a great looking sneaker, which looks excellent crafted, as brands continue to make designs to take us out of the summer.

The seasonal Saucony Original Grid SD “Pumpkin Spice” will be releasing Friday 21st October and takes our sneaker of the week title to kick things off.

 

Nike Air Foamposite One “Night Maroon”

Nike’s innovative Foamposite silhouette receives a dark tone in the “Night Maroon” colourway, or referred to by some as the “Candy Apple”. Maroon coats the shell, while a black trim features throughout the upper mesh, inner sole and the laces. A gum sole adds contrast to finish off this silky release.

The Nike Air Foamposite One “Night Maroon” will be available to purchase on Thursday 20th October.

Atmos x PUMA Disc Blaze Night Jungle

Atmos, the Japanese sneaker retailer, once again collaborate with Puma on the Disc Blaze silhouette; this time on a jungle themed design.

Titled “night jungle”, Puma include Atmos’ patented duck camo print around the suede toebox. Streaks of electric turquoise flow through the upper, complimented by lightweight mesh under the disc cage. The innovative disc follows suit with flashes of turquoise to catch the eye as you easily adapt the fit with a swivel. Personally, I am fan of camo on sneakers and mixed with the Disc Blaze, Atmos and PUMA have not disappointed

The Atmos x PUMA Disc Blaze “Night Jungle” is releasing Saturday 22nd October.

 

St. Alfred x Adidas Consortium Gazelle Gore-Tex

Adidas are always finding ways to bring the past to the present and by adding Gore-Tex technology to the iconic Gazelle silhouette in this team up with St. Alfred, they have done it again.

Featuring an off-white/chalk suede upper, lined with the water proof Gore-Tex technology, St. Alfred offer a trainer willing to stand against the upcoming winter elements. Soft leather, appearing on the heel, insole and tongue, finish of this very clean sneaker to polish off any look. If that is not enough, with each purchase comes with a limited edition tee and collaboration zine.

An initial release for the Saint Alfred x Adidas Consortium Gazelle OG GTX is set for Saturday 22nd October at St. Alfred store and online, however a wider release is set for October 29th

 

Kick Lab x PUMA Disc Blaze “Desert Trooper”

KICKS LAB PUMA Disc Blaze Desert Trooper

Appearing again are the PUMA Disc Blaze this week, this time tag teaming with Japanese retailer Kicks Lab.

As you can guess from the name “Desert Trooper”, Kicks Lab have drawn inspiration from the Special Forces as the Disc Blaze gears up for duty. Slightly grained suede on the upper, mimicking the appearance of sand, is featured in a bold ivory cream colourway. Black accompanies the sandy hue, coating the mesh toe box and black out the disk system. Co-branding can be found on the shoes foot bed for a subtle recognition on the brands that made this imaginative design.

The second Disc Blaze in this weeks feature, Kick x Lab Puma Disc Blaze “Desert Trooper” is available to purchase in limited quantities from Kicks lab on Saturday 22nd October.
