With sneakers dropping daily, we are here once again to provide some order to the chaos with this most sought after releases. This week, we have features from Nike, Adidas and Asics as brands are constantly finally new ways to reinvent classic silhouettes. Here are this week’s hottest sneaker drops.

Sneaker of The Week – Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro Premium “Ginger”





For this addition of sneaker of the week, Tinker Hatfield’s timeless Jordan IV design receives yet another luxurious touch. Following the previous premium upgrades of the Jordan 4, including the black leather, quilted navy and the snakeskin that have appeared this year, the ginger colourway looks set to be the most striking yet.

For the highest quality available, Nike have constructed the whole upper of premium leather with a ginger finish that is somewhat reminiscent of the Japanese brand “Hender Scheme” re-upholstered Jordan model. Finished with matching ginger laces and a gum sole, Nikes upgrade of the iconic Jordan 4 silhouette is definitely one of its best to date. Mixing simplistic beautiful with outstanding quality. To own a pair, wallets may have to be tipped and repeatedly shaken as the cost can be considered more then your average!

The Air Jordan 4 Retro Premium “Ginger” is set to release on Saturday 29th October and set to be a great addition to the Jordan 4 family.

Adidas Originals by White Mountaineering Collection

Last week featured the amazing White Mountaineering NMD_CS1 design and this week we get the rest of the collection which doesn’t disappoint.

Also available in this 8 piece collaboration, is the Adidas Tubular Nova in three colourways including black, navy and olive. The White Mountaineering team have added hints of suede that coat the panel overlays for that premium look and feel. They have also added their touch to the often unmentioned Adidas Forum Mid, the retro basketball trainer. Jagged panels throughout the upper modernise this classic silhouette which appear in black and olive tones. Lastly, the Adidas Seeulater has been revamped with a Primeknit upper, transforming this classic hiking model into an everyday city stroller. Appearing in dark grey and tonal olive, the sturdy sole will leave you comfortable to combat against any snow that may be coming.

The White Mountineering x Adidas Originals collection is set to release on Thursday 27th October.

Nike draws inspiration from previous colourways in the Air Presto vault to create a colour-blocking mayhem in its latest design.

Although named “Greedy”, it is essentially a “What The” approach that has been applied, which has been a thriving tactic recently used by many brands. Fused of an array tones, each shoe has its own palette including hues of grey, white, black, green, orange and many more that pay homage to the silhouette itself. Detailing appears in the sockliner, as graphic inspired by Air Presto’s original ad campaign is features.
