Rewind: The Sneaker Week in Review

Date: November 13 2017

By: Cesca Benson


A week is a long time in the sneaker game – you’d be forgiven for falling behind on the latest news. And so let's rewind.

Rumours Abound Re Another Nike x Virgil Abloh Colab
Sources say that 2018 will bring another Nike x Virgil Abloh collection. It's looking like four styles will get the Off-White treatment the second time around. 


The NYPD Shut Down The 'Black Pigeon' Dunk Campout
Last week saw the release of Jeff Staple's long-awaited 'Black Pigeon' Dunk, and the NYPD did everything in their power to avoid the riots that came with the release of the original 'Pigeon' Dunk. 


Fear of God x Vans Colab Gets a Release Date
A release date for Jerry Lorenzo's new collaboration with Vans was announced last week. Leaked pictures set the internet ablaze, followed by snaps of the entire collection. For all the diehard fans out there, FOG branding takes centre stage.


PUMA Introduces the Jamming
PUMA are the latest brand to hit the market with new-age tech. The Jamming sees an airy midsole filled with cushy 'NRGY beads' to keep a spring in your step and an evoKNIT upper for all-round, foot-hugging comfort.


Jordan x Levi's Colab Rumours Emerge
It looks like Jordan Brand and Levi's will come together again, 10 years after their initial collaboration. This time around, the Jordan 4 will get the denim treatment in a three-colourway collection.


atmos Reveal a Revamped Animal Pack at ComplexCon
atmos delivered the goods at last weekend's ComplexCon. Revamping the Asia-exclusive 'Animal Pack' of the late-2000s, the Japanese retailer previewed Air Max 1s and 95s that re-up on the pony hair construction of the originals.


Kim K Teases Another Look at the YEEZY 500s
After Kim Kardashian was snapped last month wearing the newest addition to the YEEZY family, she's offered a closer look on the 'gram. The 'Mud Rat' 500s continue the extreme design aesthetic of the Wave Runner, with its chunky upper and bubbly sole.


Air Max 97 Gets the 'Royal' Treatment
Air Max 97 fervour continues as the Swoosh reboot another classic colourway. In the wake of so many 97 make-ups dropped recently, it's nice to be reminded that sometimes simple still is best – we think the 'Royal' hits the nail on the head.
