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.
Rewind: The Sneaker Week in Review

First Two adidas x Dragon Ball Z Shoes Emerge
Streetwear fiends and otakus alike have been keenly awaiting news of the recently announced adidas x Dragon Ball Z colab, and this week we glimpsed the first two silhouettes. Images of character-inspired colourways suggest that upcoming additions to the collection will follow suit, but there has been no solid word from the Three Stripes.
The Nike Speed Turf Max Gets a 2018 Retro
Nike reached into the depths of their back catalogue for this one. New-gen sneakerheads are probably unfamiliar with the Speed Turf Max, but fans of 90s NFL stars Dan Marino and Steve Young are sure to recognise these as requisite training gear... Anyone? The Speed Turf Max has everything we want from a 90s retro, and the 49ers colourway is the perfect way to cap it off.
Jordan Brand and Levi's Add Apparel to Their Colab
We were primed and ready for the release of the Levi's x Air Jordan 4, and then this week brought news that the shoes would release alongside a reversible denim jacket - who can contain their excitement? Using signature Levi's detailing, both the shoes and the jacket will fit into your rotation as easily as your favourite jeans.
New Balance and Grenson Re-Up on Their Collaboration
Following their 2016 colab, NB and Grenson have returned to the 576 in a three-strong collection that takes the runner into the world of dapper. The pack uses the same brogue detailing and premium materials as the first colab, this time offering men's and women's versions. Suit up!
Nike Set to Rerelease the Air Max 180
New models and innovative tech always excite us, but sometimes the classics are just what the doctor ordered. The Air Max 180 is the latest Max to get another run – its first outing since its 2013 retro. The 180 was the first silhouette to fully expose the sole's Air unit, and Ultramarine was its most iconic colourway. Trust us, you're going to want these.
Newest EQT Doubles as Berlin Transport Ticket
The newest EQT 93/17 is as practical as it is good-looking. A collaboration with Berlin's largest public transit company, the sneaker features a tongue tab that doubles as a yearly pass to ride the city's über-efficient public transport. Also featuring a TPU cage printed with the same pattern as the city's subway seats, these shoes are as Berlin as it gets.
Air Max 270 Teal to Release on Air Max Day
Several colourways of the Air Max 270 have been revealed in the last couple of weeks, but this one seems to be causing the most stir. A throwback to the classic Air Max 93 'Menthol', the 270 takes more than just the colour scheme from the 90s icon – the heel-wrapping Air unit and panelling are taken from the OG and tweaked for this century.
