Air Jordan 1 High “Lost & Found“
Jordan Brand has decked out the Air Jordan 1 in a very special design that gives a nod to the original 1985 “Chicago” colorway that features a reimagined design, dubbed “Lost & Found.” The Chicago colorway has been brought back multiple times with different silhouettes, but to bring it back on the Air Jordan 1 is a big deal. This rendition features a special white leather design that’s accented by red and black overlays. The variation arrives with an aged look, along with a toe box that mimics the original 1985 pair. If you are looking for that perfect sneaker to gift this Holiday season, this is it! Grab a pair now from aftermarket stores such as GOAT. Thanks to some of the highest production numbers we have seen on the Air Jordan 1 silhouette, this pair will be happily enjoyed around the globe.
New Balance 550 “Nightwatch Green”
The New Balance 550 continues to launch in new colorways, feeding the massive demand for the vintage basketball shoe. This Nightwatch Green pair features a palette similar to ALD’s debut of the silhouette. A white leather upper is seen, and accents in deep green appear along the shoe’s piping, collar overlay, and outsole. A nice light cream color lays over the mesh collar, tongue, and midsole, with golden yellow branding throughout to complete the look.
Nike Dunk Low “Panda”
Dunks have taken over this year, with mainly sought-after releases which have come and gone. One colorway that continues to make a debut is this Panda iteration. The pair might be one of the most widely bought Dunk Lows ever to release. Featuring one of the simplest styles we have seen is this clean White and Black design. The fact this colorway was released in full family sizing makes this pair a perfect gift for the Holiday 2022 season. Grab a pair now in all sizes at aftermarket stores such as Flight Club.
Salehe Bembury x Pollex Clog “Urchin”
The Salehe Bembury x Crocs collection has taken over the sneaker industry like no other. Capitalizing on the Clog and comfy slip-on takeover, Salehe Bembury has added his expertise to the standard clog with an organic design that fits right in at home with the trendiest designs. Sporting the usual clog design, this Urchin rendition features a simple all-grey palette. The pair released in May 2022 alongside two other colorways, which are “Menemsha” (brown) and a green “Cucumber” offering. Featuring a new construction that molds Crocs’ usual foam upper into a design that’s reminiscent of Bemburys’ signature fingerprint pattern, the new look gives the clog a totally new aesthetic. Utility-inspired ankle straps are placed in to allow user customization while translucent hits are given to the rubber outsole to add just the right amount of contrast to the one shade upper.
Air Jordan 4 “Black Canvas”
Set to drop in Black, Light Steel Grey, White, and Fire Red, the Air Jordan 4 opts for a design that may look familiar to you; that’s because it boasts a striking resemblance to Eminem’s Carhartt 4’s. The black canvas is seen across the design with black suede and plastic overlays which also share time with grey. More grey detailing is added to the tongue labels and the Jumpman logos on the heels as a black, grey, and white midsole, and black outsoles are added underneath.
