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 first week of June features the New Balance MRL247HE Luxe and MRL247LP Luxe, the Nike Flyknit Racer Multi-Color 2.0, the Nike Juvenate in an orchid + navy colourway, and new leather editions of the Classic Cortez.
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.
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 soft 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.
The Nike Flyknit racer provides an adaptive, lightweight fit with a racing-specific rubber outsole that delivers exceptional traction. Other features include a Zoom Air unit for ultra-responsive cushioning, as well as a full-length Phylon midsole for lightweight comfort.
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 the updated colourway makes it look equally at home on the streets as on the track.
Durable and comfortable, but not at the expense of style, the Classic Cortez sneaker is a beloved throwback. It features a rubber midsole (replaced by a leather midsole for the 'Alternate' edition) for lightweight cushioning along with a leather upper. Pair these kicks with fitted jeans and an oversized tee for a casual look.
