On this segment of JustFreshKicks: Top 5 Sneakers that Didn’t Sell Out, we explore the top releases that released during October 2019 and that are still available now. We’ll be going over each sneaker release as well as why we chose them to help you find some gems or just shed some light on silhouettes that went overlooked. Continue reading below to view our picks and be sure to check out our September selections here.
AIR JORDAN 10 “SEATTLE”
Although not a “hyped” silhouette, the Jordan 10 still deserves some attention. Its versatile upper can be dressed up or down and fit in with almost any occasion. It also is a great silhouette to wear on the court with its ankle support and durability. While it’s a great model, this colorway is also one for the books. Dedicated to the Seattle Sonics, the subtle pops of green and yellow pop all while being low-key and not too much. The white leather along with black accents also looks very nice and is one of the better colorways we have seen adorn the model. Also with the 10 not being in demand anymore, we have seen less and less releases throughout the year so if you’re a fan it would not be a bad idea to pick these up along with a great story behind them. They retailed for $190 in Men’s sizing but also were made available for the little ones as well for $140, a great price for the look as well as the story.
ADIDAS OZWEEGO “PALE NUDE”
The new adidas Ozweego model first debuted this year, offering sneakerheads a nice blend of old and new. The ’90s inspired bulky upper paired with modern tech has seen solid colorways since its introduction, however this one may very well be the best one yet. Sporting a pale nude color scheme, this fall-ready colorway also features grey tints and reflective detailing along the underlays. You can pick up a pair for $99 + shipping at END.
UNINTERRUPTED X NIKE AIR FORCE 1
Earlier this month Uninterrupted has unveiled their “More Than” Nike Air Force 1, which serves as a rallying cry for “everyone who wants to be ‘More Than.’” This model features an Iconic design which allows you to personalize the shoe by writing your own “More Than” statement. Mainly consisting of a classic White leather upper, Lapis Blue accenting is seen on the tongue, laces, sole, and “I am Uninterrupted’ branding. Interested in customizing a pair? There is a full size run available on 18montrose for only $109.
NIKE CORTEZ “DAY OF THE HEAD”
While the latest iteration of the Cortez model barely made the cut for the month of October, it holds personal meaning to me and should definitely be included. As a native of Mexico, the above model pays homage to my personal cultural background while producing an aesthetically pleasing silhouette. The combination of Day of The Dead (Dia De Los Muertos) celebration with the iconic Nike model combines the two cultures I most identify with. A simple colorway dons the overarching theme as its upper and sole are dressed in Black. Subtle–yet vibrant–accents can be seen through the Orange highlight and White Swoosh. One of the most notable of characteristics is the Reflective Swoosh that emphasizes the motif further with skulls and patterns. The Nike Cortez “Day Of The Dead” can be found through shoepalace.com in a full-sized run.
CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLOR ALL-STAR 70 SUEDE
You just can’t beat the classics. Month after month, year after year, Converse’s Chuck Taylor has been a staple of both the style and sneaker communities. This month, the Boston-based brand dropped a wide new collection to round out the Fall, including my personal favorite suede iteration in a stunning new midnight turquoise tone. Thicker than your average canvas Chuck, the suede is a perfect material to bridge the seasonal change and this colorway is absolutely killer. Check em out at The Darkside Initiative, or your local Converse retailer.
