Superbalist’s latest sneaker drops and what to wear them with
For all the news in shoes that you really need to know, here’s a list of our hottest sneaker drops. The fourth week of May features Converse's Chuck Taylor All Star Platform Shroud, the New Balance ML1978HC, and fresh colourways of the adidas ZX Flux, X PLR, Stan Smith, and Superstar, and adidas' archive revival Leonero.
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.
Put your best foot forward in this stylish runner. A sleek addition to the ZX shoe family, these slimmed-down sneakers have a modern-looking design with a woven mesh upper, welded 3-Stripes and a TPU moulded heel cage. It includes TORSION® support in its ZX midsole and outsole, as well as a single-piece upper.
Then, the futuristic X_PLR combines clean styling with innovative technology. Fitted with a breathable mesh upper and a minimalist speed-lacing system, the sneaker offers a lightweight wear, as well as improved comfort thanks to its superior lining design. To complete this urban style, the shoe has been fitted with a reflective heel tab and 3-Stripes that change colour in different lighting environments.
The Superstar is a '70s sneaker that began its life as a court-dominating B-ball shoe. It wasn't long before it was infiltrating the worlds of skateboarding and street style (not to mention the hip-hop main stage). These women's shoes keep the look classic with a metallic colourway coated leather upper, featuring all the authentic details, including zigzag edging on the 3-Stripes and the signature rubber shell toe with signature gold tongue emblem.
The women's Stan Smith shoes continue the streamlined court style of the Stan Smith and add a touch of modern flair. Done in soft leather with perforated 3-Stripes, they're updated with a shiny metallic colourway.
Inspired by archive adidas soccer cleats, this authentic skate shoe is crafted for everyday wear and tear. Built on a durable, supportive cup sole with a sock liner for low-profile cushioning, these men's shoes have a textile-lined suede upper for long-lasting comfort and performance.
With an upper that’s been designed in the classic Chuck Taylor silhouette, this shoe sets itself apart thanks to its new flatform wedge sole. However, the details that you’ve come to love and expect from this shoe are all here, from the textured rubber sole to metal eyelets and the cushioned lunarlon insole. The leather finish makes this a must for inner-city adventures.
Step away from conventions with this fresh 1978 drop. Made from a soft and durable suede it features large perforations along the sides for comfortable breathability, along with a standout cut-out opening at the ankle for a modern edge that is further enhanced by a low profile white midsole that rises into the upper at the heel.
