Sneakers of the Week

Our pick of the best footwear that’s dropped

For all the news in shoes that you really need to know, here’s our consolidated list of our hottest sneaker drops, ranging from futuristic Huaraches to fold and go Nikes to a pair of Vans that speak directly to youth. Prefer to keep your kicks more classic? We got you with vintage Reeboks and Old Skool Vans.

But wait, here’s a disclaimer – as there’s always the chance that kicks this fresh may already be sold out in your size by the time you read this post, if that’s the case may we suggest that next time you don’t sleep and be sure to follow Superbalist’s Superb Shoe of the Day on all our social platforms.

Nike Air Huarache Run SE

This modern sneaker boasts futuristic good looks and comfort in abundance. Combining minimal colours with a neoprene upper and leather overlays, it’s a standout style that’s sure to take your streetwear look to fresh new heights. The phylon foam offers a soft heel, while the air soles with flex grooves contribute to all-day comfort. The Dynamic Fit inner sleeve provides foot-cradling support, culminating in a sneaker that’s equally fit for the streets and the running track.

Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra SE

Women's Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra SE Shoe brings back the iconic Huarache fit with a featherweight feel. Crafted with a sleek one-piece upper, seamless molded details and an ultra lightweight outsole, it easily packs into your bag for on-the-go storage.

Nike W Juvenate

The super-light Juvenate broke out in 2015 as Nike’s new premium silhouette. It represents the natural progression of the popular Roshe design that revolutionised footwear, with a similar ‘barefoot’ design, an extremely thin and breathable upper, a Pylon midsole for solid cushioning, and a comfortable lightweight design. Its “fold-and-go“ upper, which is the thinnest of all Nike sneakers ever, makes it ideal for packing and carrying, while its simple colourway makes it look equally at home on the streets as on the track.

Reebok Workout Plus Vintage

This seasonal iteration of the Workout Plus encapsulates the athletic history of the brand while retaining the comfort and durability for which the design became famous. Originally introduced in the 80s, this sneaker features a traditional full-grain leather upper and an H-shaped strap. Comfort and durability come standard, thanks to the EVA midsole and high abrasion rubber outsole.

Vans Old Skool

The first Vans style to sport the brand’s now-iconic side stripe. It’s a low profile, lace-up style that’s become a favourite amongst skaters because of its durable canvas upper, padded tongue and lining, as well as signature Waffle Outsole for superior stability.


Reworked just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Sk-Hi Originals are covered in a cute ‘OMG’ print on a simple white background. All the classic features remain, from the high profile to the sturdy canvas upper, padded collars, a lace-up front and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
