In this blog, I’m going to look at some of the latest drops for the Autumn Winter 2017 season, helping you keep up to date with the very latest trends in trainers.
Adidas Originals Koln
Inspired by the German city of Cologne, these retro-styled trainers are supposed to capture the energy of the carnival season held in the city every year on November 11th. Inspired by the classic football boots from World Cups gone by and with design cues taken from the 1954 Adidas Argentina boots and the Chile 62 boots, the design features a premium suede upper, synthetic leather and textile lining a gum rubber outsole and the classic three stripes. A design classic.
Nike SF Air Force 1 Mid
This new take on the classic Air Force One design is inspired by the military. The design varies from the classic Air Force One design by having an adjustable ankle strap, a dual zip heel fastener and the heel and tongue are made from ballistic nylon, inspired by military field boots. The forefoot and overlays are made from premium leather. They’re available in mushroom/bone, black/natural gum and orange and white colourways.
This new top of the line running shoe balances new technologies with running shoe style. The form-fitting evoKNIT upper provides a glove-like fit. The shoe uses NRGY Beads in its transparent TPU case, which provides an adaptive support that looks like no other shoe. The rubber pods in the heel and toe provide ground contact traction without being too heavy to weigh you down while an internal 3D heel clip ensures optimal heel support. With these shoes, you’ll have the latest technology and look sharp while you’re at it.
Vans X North Face Collection
Vans, the skate and alternative brand of choice have teamed up with outdoor specialists The North Face to create a range of durable trainers for the winter season. They feature a water repellent upper that includes Cosmo Comfort heat retention technology to keep your feet warm. The outsole is made of winterGRIP rubber, which stays soft even at low temperatures. They are available in high and low versions in white/black, yellow/black, black/red and all black colourways. Now you’ll be able to have the classic Vans shape while keeping warm and dry this winter, and of course, you’ll look on point.
Air Jordan Wheat Pack
These wheat coloured kicks are available in the classic Jordan 1 and the Jordan VI silhouette. Ditching the classic Jordan smooth leather for a suede upper, these are some of the more unusual Jordan’s to drop in recent times. The Jordan 1s have a natural gum rubber outsole giving a monotone look while the Jordan VIs has a white outsole. If you love Jordan’s, these will be an unusual addition to your collection.
