Without further ado, browse Nigel’s selection below and click the links to shop.
Nike Air Force 1 ’07 LV8 Utility
“Virgil Abloh’s influence is heavy on this one! I’m glad Nike has managed to translate his concepts and ideas into general releases. Some people might not like it, but I see it as an opportunity to buy into these aesthetics for the low. Also, a mini Swoosh is always a win, and this version of the tried-and-true Air Force 1 has two.”
Salomon S/Lab XT-6 Softground ADV
“Salomon’s S/Lab has just released this Ferrari-like sneaker. From color to function, the Softground trail runner is at the forefront of the ‘ugly’ dadcore sneaker trend that’s still going strong and probably won’t go away for a minute. Your money will be well invested because the shoe features a water-repellent upper, quick-lace system, and advanced cushioning.”
ASICS x Naked GEL-Kayano 25
“ASICS and Naked from Copenhagen have created this very clean iteration of the GEL-Kayano 25, a favorite among many older sneakerheads who collect footwear with comfort and good cushioning in mind. Naked is a women-only sneaker store, so men should be glad they made these in bigger sizes as well.”
Nike Air Terra Humara ’18
“Finally, the Air Terra Humara is back! This one is for the old heads out there, and you can believe me when I say that even Nike’s executives have been waiting for this for a long time. I hope they’re going to release a waterproof ACG version of this one soon.”
Nike x OFF-WHITE Blazer Mid
“After the Prestos, I swore not to buy any more Nike x OFF-WHITE releases, but this Blazer is a no-brainer. The mix of materials from suede to leather to the rubberized toecap, all in classic black and white, just makes it hard not to want these. After the original ‘The Ten’ pack, this is my favorite Nike x OFF-WHITE release so far. Of course, they’re sold out already, but you can still cop them at resell sites such as StockX.”
