SNEAKER DROP: OCTOBER 2018
Run like Kipchoge, get style like Kanye.
RAY POLANCO JR.
Nike VaporFly 4% Flyknit
Run like the fastest marathoner ever, Eliud Kipchoge, thanks to Nike’s latest technology. A full-length carbon fiber plate in the midsole minimizes energy loss during your stride which the company says delivers a four-percent improvement in running efficiency compared to previous Nike running shoes. Wanted by runners and sneakerheads alike, these will surely sell out quickly so be ready to buy at 10 a.m. on October 4.
Adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 Sesame
Kanye West’s mission to serve the world Yeezys continues this month. Equal parts cozy, equal parts fashion, the neutral earth-tone vibes of the upper results in one of the most versatile sneakers you could own. Here’s a buying tip: Follow @adidasOriginals on Twitter for up-to-the-minute release information and early access to get the purchase link directly to your email.
Vans Authentic OTW Repeat
The California skate company’s iconic “Off The Wall” logo, which doubles as a sticker attached to every pair of Vans, is turned into an all-over print aesthetic. This one-off design [from article author Ray Polanco Jr.] sold out; after a year, it’s back online and in stores.
Virgil Abloh OFF-WHITE x Nike Blazer Hallows Eve
Halloween, but make it fashion: The newly appointed Louis Vuitton director of menswear, Virgil Abloh, is back with another Nike collaboration and this one appears to turn a pumpkin inside out. Tune into the Nike SNKRS app to grab your pair mid-October.
Prada is coming to take over everyone’s closet in 2018 and beyond with its new luxury running-inspired shoe. Even fashion elites such as A$AP Rocky, Kanye West, and Don C have been planting their flags in support of the Italian brand. Get your fix of the Prada Cloudbust now because they won’t last long in stores.
LOUIS VUITTON OUTLAND BOOT
“One of the last LV designs by Kim Jones, who was the among the first to marry sportswear and luxury, this boot is coveted globally.” –Kwasi Kessie [FYI, sneaker aficionados look at boots in the same vein thanks to Kanye.]
