There are many choices when it comes to shoes. Whether it is casual or sport specific footwear we have come to help steer you in the right direction. Sometimes it is hard to choose what to buy because there are numerous styles of shoes out there. Regardless if you are a Sperries type or like to walk around in the latest Nikes, Converse, or Air Jordans you will want to take a look at some of the latest upcoming shoe releases with help from our friends at hypebeast.com.
1. Nike KD7 “On The Road”
“The latest variation of Nike’s KD7 is inspired by road games for the Oklahoma City Thunder forward. Each shoe is dipped in shades taken from the Oklahoma City Thunder’s away uniform. As such, Nike’s latest campaign for the KD7 takes a look at Kevin Durant‘s journey on the road. The reigning MVP admits that it takes extra effort to be the best at what he does. On away trips, Durant makes sure to get in an extra half-hour session of shooting before games. It’s that dedication that helps him sink game winners against opposing teams. ” Quieting a crowd on the road with a big shot is one of the best parts of basketball,” he says in a new Nike Basketball visual. ” That’s what I love the most. Hitting the dagger shot or hitting the game winner, going out there and just dominating, that’s what life is about on the road.” The KD7 “On the Road” will be available on Nike’s website and at select retail locations globally on October 23″ (Chris Harris, hypebeast.com).
2. Nike Flyknit Roshe Run “Triple Black”
“A combination of Nike’s most covetable technologies come together in the newest release from the Swoosh camp: the Flyknit Roshe Run. After taking a first look at the sneaker just last month, here we take a closer inspection of this detailed release. The Flyknit upper plays perfectly into traditional woven autumnal motifs, executed with an intricate honeycomb pattern at the toebox and traditional heather black at the midfoot. These features rest atop a clean black Phylon outsole, irresistibly cushioned per the Roshe Run design canon. Pick up this release at select Nike stockists in the coming weeks” (HypeBeast Staff, hypebeast.com).
3. Saucony Originals GRID 9000 “Spice” Collection
“Saucony has come out with a set of new colorways for its classic GRID 9000 model dubbed the “Spice” collection. The new iterations take on colors representing spices from across the globe including paprika, cardamom, rosemary, fennel, cinnamon and turmeric, while the shoe’s construction consists of rich suede and mesh. While the design for the “Spice” collection are on point, the shoes themselves sport supreme comfort through its G.R.I.D technology. The Saucony Originals GRID 9000 “Spice” Collection is now available at Saucony retailers worldwide” (Alex Lindrum, hypebeast.com).
4. Supra Skytop IV Featuring Laser-Etched Pony Hair Suede
“As a mainstay brand within the realms of skate and lifestyle, SUPRA continues to develop one of its iconic silhouettes. The classic Skytop IV is the latest in the range to receive a unique update, as the laser-etched sneaker is composed of black pony hair suede and olive textile with a geometric pattern. Chad Muska’s signature model is a ruggedly constructed high top featuring a clean vamp and set apart with a short black eyestay, while the upper is comprised primarily from the laser-etched pattern of olive chevrons and black diamonds. Sitting atop a black SUPRAFOAM midsole and a black rubber outsole as well as a toe bumper to provide superior traction, the sneaker is an amalgamation of SUPRA’s direction in merging functionality with style. Finishing touches include a neoprene bootie and black kidskin lining that further enhances the comfort and support levels. Keep an eye out for this rendition of the Skytop IV to release at SUPRA and its stockists worldwide this month” (Arby Li, hypebeast.com)
5. Nike Zoom Hypercross Trainer Black/ Turquoise
“Using the same proprietary Zoom Air cushioning technology as the recently released Nike LeBron 12, these Zoom Hypercross Trainers are designed for versatility across multiple court surfaces, both indoors and out. Featuring contrasting panels of turquoise and dark green-grey, the lightweight mesh upper features soft, pliable foam on the inside for training-specific support and a better fit. The selling point however are the Zoom Air shock-absorption units, which provide fast and responsive traction while allowing for agility on the court thanks to its full rubber outsole. The Zoom Hypercross Trainers will be available at multiple retailers” (Gavin Yeung, hypebeast.com).
