Our pick of the best footwear that’s dropped

For all the news in shoes that you really need to know, here’s a consolidated list of our hottest sneaker drops, which include two pairs of technical Nikes, a platform Puma, a Superga restock and sporty new New Balance.

But wait, here’s a disclaimer – there’s a chance that kicks this fresh may already be sold out in your size by the time you read this post, so 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 Roshe 2 Flyknit

It’s taken almost five years but finally the wait is over: say hello to the Nike Roshe Two. This new low-cut performance and lifestyle shoe is the second ever model released from the Roshe series and features a comfortable sock-like construction with plush cushioned collar, a Flyknit upper with a ribbed design that shifts between colours while in motion, and an updated three foam density midsole. As comfortable as they are stylish, these Roshes are sure to make some serious waves this season.

Puma Vikky Platform

Add a sleek touch to your streetwear look with these flatform sneakers from Puma. A soft suede upper complete with patent details along with a rubber sole complete this comfortable design. Ribbed jeans and a cropped tee will have your weekend-in-the-city look sorted.

New Balance 247 Sport

Characterised by a streamlined silhouette with premium cushioning at the heel, these sneakers fuse functionality and form in a pair that’s set to become a wardrobe staple. Features include a net-detailed upper with logo-embellished overlays, a tidy lace up and branding tabs at the tongue. A versatile design, they’ll complement denim, chinos and more.

Air Max Zero Essential

The ever-popular Air Max Zero returns this season in an engineered upper. Offering lightweight support, the design includes a foam midsole for flawless comfort. On or off the streets, this modern design fuses the best of performance suited comfort with minimalist appeal.

Superga Cotu

A benchmark style for Superga. The pebbled rubber sole, low cut silhouette and canvas upper represent one of the brand’s founding – and most popular – designs. It couples classic sneaker design and comfort into one seasoned product.
