Yeezy 700 Vanta V2 Boost

First arriving back in 2019, the Yeezy 700 Vanta V2 Boost was recently re-released by the iconic duo, Kanye West and adidas. Opting for an all-over black design — an approach that’s not often seen in Ye’s recent collections — this iteration showcases a streamlined silhouette with a flexible mesh upper. Powered by BOOST foam for unrivalled comfort and support, the Vanta is one of Yeezy’s most versatile offerings to date — so versatile, you can wear it all year round. 

Nike Dunk High Bicoastal

It’s no secret that Dunks have dominated the market in recent years, and the Nike Dunk High Bicoastal is no exception. Drawing inspiration from its basketball roots, this high-top kick sports perforations on the toe box for optimised breathability and a cushioned sole underfoot. The muted-green colourway makes it a covetable kick for autumn, complemented by a clean white base for balance. Rounded off with Nike’s signature branding throughout, this shoe looks just as home on the street as it does the court.

Air Jordan 4 Retro Canyon Purple Womens

Championing fashion and function in equal measure, the Air Jordan 4 Retro Canyon Purple Womens delivers a colourful shoe with ample charm. Elevating the ‘90s silhouette, this Air Jordan 4 dons a purple-tone suede colour scheme, while shades of speckled green on the mudguard and eyelets ensure this shoe stands out from the crowd. Complete with a world-renowned Air unit in the sole, this sneaker is comfy enough to wear all day.

New Balance 990v3 Made In USA x Teddy Santis Navy Castlerock

With Teddy Santis at the helm of New Balance’s creative direction, the Boston brand continues to make waves with its Made In USA line. Now, the collection is back with a brand new release: the much-awaited New Balance 990v3 Made In USA x Teddy Santis Navy Castlerock. Expertly crafted from premium suede across the upper, the ever-popular 990v3 silhouette is dressed in refined shades of navy, grey and blue. Ideal for everyday outings or weekend strolls, this collaborative kick will easily slot into your wardrobe.

Nike Air Max 95 Light Bone

One of Nike’s most iconic silhouettes, the Air Max 95 Light Bone brings the OG style into the present day with a pared-back and minimalistic colourway. Endlessly wearable and timeless, the sidewall is refreshed with tonal hues, while the bone-inspired graphics on the midsole nod to the ‘90s model’s beginnings. Below, the visible Max Air units in the forefoot and heel provide maximum comfort, confirming this shoe’s status as a non-negotiable must-have.
