Following the reveal of their recent project with INVINCIBLE, the Three Stripes is once again looking to further increase their range of trail-appropriate footwear 2021 Yeezy Boost with the introduction of the adidas FYW Secant. If it’s bulbous/multidirectional grip outsole looks familiar to you, that’s because it owns the very same bottom unit as the adidas FYW XTA, another adidas hiker that made its way to the market earlier this year. It’s upper design elements are what help it stand on its own as it is manufactured with a combination of nylon tongues, lateral/medial synthetic walls dressed up with exposed stitched three stipe logos, and suede overlays that latch onto the toe tips and heels. Branding is present in two areas including a tiny hit on the outer toe box as well as on the tongues. Two outdoor-ready colorways including a “Hyper Pop” and a “Semi Frozen Yellow” are set to arrive soon, the former of which is scheduled for a release.
Although bereft of any Mens Jordan 2020 official releases for the past six years, the Jordan Flight 45 High is encroaching closer to a return to the shelves as its newest colorway has just uncovered itself by way of official imagery. For those just now learning about the silhouette, its high-profile design is formed as a lover letter to the 80s/90s era of retro hoops models, and comes built with a sole unit ripped directly from the ever-classic Air Jordan 3. And this Fall/Winter season, lifestyle shoe is being crafted in a new makeup that calls out one of the most iconic pairs under the Jumpman umbrella: the Air Jordan 11 “Concord”. The heightened portions of the upper dial its synthetic backgrounds, leather overlays, and mid-foot cages to a clean white, while the mudguards, and heel overlays color-block with glossy patent leathers to best translate its muse. Moreover, tiny doses of concord purple peak out through the tongue branding and cage molds, and the outsoles stand out with icy blue finishes reminiscent of the Jordan 11 “Columbia” which is rumored to drop in low-top form next year.
Summer is officially over, but the women’s Nike Air Force 1 Shadow continues to emerge in vibrant color schemes perfect for the warmer months of the year. Its latest ensemble features “Team Red,” “Orange” and “Volt” accents across a faint base. Although underlays indulge in white leather construction, their accompanying suede panels boast light pink and grey hues.Nike Air Force 1 Shadow Team Red Orange Layered lace guards, profile swooshes and heel overlays all indulge in both eye-catching and understated tones, with the former two areas sporting a loud citrus shade. Lining on the tongue and collar feature a burgundy-reminiscent color that also takes over branding on the tongue and heel. Underfoot, additional midsole tooling contrast the off-white, exaggerated sole unit with its faint rose and neon green color scheme.
