September has been a disappointing month for the sneaker community, but there was some hope restored. Thanks to the Saltwater Sauconys, Olive Foamposites and “What The” Lebrons, it was some heat on the shelves for my sneaker lovers. Did you cop?
Saucony x West NYC Shadow 90 – Saltwater
The Saucony Shadow 90 release was pretty dope because it was with West NYC, who hasn’t done any collaborations in a while. This shoe has a unique meaning, tied closely to the nature of fishing, from the materials used to the colorway. Carbon fiber and grip tape are two of the materials used to compose this shoe that can also be found on fishing rods and boats. The purple and pink hues were chosen because they are typically the colors of both the sky during fishing and some fish.
Nike Air Foamposite One Olive
Nike has been showing lots of diversity with the Foamposite color way, and they’re usually a hit or miss. This Air Foamposite One PRM Olive is a hit. It still follows it’s classic design with the upper shell. The upper is olive with brown leather panels constructing the lace closure, and a rubber gum sole.
Nike Lebron 12 SE EP “What The”
“What the?” is definitely and accurate question when looking at this Lebron series. This Nike “What The” Lebron 12 is symbolized as a compilation of things you should know as an avid sneaker wearer. It features many of the brand’s most sought-after technologies and is set off by a massive “23” that engulfs the Hyperposite construction. It highlights Swoosh gems like Safari print, speckled detailing reminiscent of the Nike Air Tech Challenge II on down to “Royal” Foamposite inspiration.
