The relationship between Supreme and Vans has found new footing this season. Previously collaborated to revamp Lampin in 2013 and Sk8-Mid last summer, Supreme transformed the less-noteworthy Lampins to an eminent brand and painted the Mids with a cheetah print. The brands are now melding corduroy and crocodile to give way to newer versions of the kicks, which will be available in contrasting colour schemes.

 

2. Todd Snyder x New Balance’s Dark and Stormy

Highlights: Premium fabric and Horween leather trim on the heels. Hues of deep ocean black and marine blues.

Calendar Spotlight: Available now

The collaboration between the menswear titan Todd Snyder and New Balance has rolled away with three sneakers of colourful splashes, named Dirty Martini, Sunset Pink, and Black and Tan. The association has just walked in with an inspired reimagination of New Balance’s 1983 shoes called the Dark and Stormy 998. Drinking in inspiration from his favourite cocktails, Snyder gushes about the “flavour contrasts and ombre hues” in this new design.

 

3. Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Presto Polar Opposites

Highlights: The recursive structuring is evident with the outer caging, Primeknit upper pattern, contrast stitching, and inside-out tongue on both. The original design features on black are coupled with the ice swoosh and the orange tab, signature plastic hangtag ‘AIR’ printed on the back mid-sole. The white part also includes a textured swoosh.

The 10-year long collaboration between the two brands is being sportily celebrated with the release of the Levi’s x Air Jordan IV collection in 2008. Continuing the fiery kicks already in the collection, the brands are releasing the Air Jordan IVs in black and white, with everything else essentially the same. The denim upper is slated to be done in black, with rumours surfacing of a white colourway as well.
