6 Sneakers to Cop While We’re Home Bored AF
Need some fresh sneakers to make your daily bed-to-couch commute? From the Nike React Element 87 'Dusty Peach' to the ferocious Reebok Instapump Fury, we've plucked out six sneakers on sale right now that will help with your hibernation.
Nike React Element 87
You can always count on END. for some good old-fashioned retail therapy. Our pick of the bunch? The winner of numerous Sneaker of the Year awards in 2019: the Nike React Element 87. Currently sitting on digital shelves for nearly half price, the React Element 87 delivered a KO to all competitors last year, before disappearing as quickly as it arrived (Nike favouring the more subdued React Element 55). Manufactured from eye-catching translucent TPU uppers and accents of 3M detailing, the React Element 87 is still as impressive as the day it first launched into the sneakersphere – albeit a little more elusive!
Salomon S/LAB XT-6
Thinking of taking some solitary hikes while practising social distancing? Salomon have been scaling the heights of the trail game for decades, the label now going from strength to strength in the competitive streetwear scene. Our pick of the bunch? The S/LAB XT-6, the dual density EVA cushioning in the midsole and high abrasion-resistant mesh perfect for going off road... or for that path you're currently wearing between your bedroom and lounge room!
Reebok Instapump Fury
Steven Smith’s ferocious Instapump Fury from ‘94 is still as tough as ever, the bullish ‘Bok baring its horns yet again in the 21st century. Loaded with all the masterful DNA of the original, the Instapump Fury features unapologetically rigid geometry – the laceless silhouette inspired by Smith’s ‘no more than what you need’ philosophy. With ballistic nylon uppers and Hexalite cushioning underfoot, the InstaPump is still an insta-cop.
Nike Blazer Mid
With 30 per cent off storewide at Caliroots, there’s plenty of Easter treats to keep you busy during hibernation. Why not opt for one from the vault? First introduced in 1977, the Nike Blazer is an old-school hooper that’s maintained dynamic cultural relevance. The vintage basketball sneaker has transfixed everyone from Off-White, Cactus Plant Flea Market, Slam Jam, and sacai of late, the throwback treatment on the midsole and signature exposed foam tongue presenting the ultimate canvas for collaborations.
Reebok DMX Trail Shadow
Sneakersnstuff are having an epic sale right now, dropping their prices by as much as 70 per cent – what better time to get on the trail bandwagon? While we’re all set to be in hibernation for quite some time, that doesn’t mean we can’t lace shoes like the Reebok DMX Trail Shadow and run laps around the house! Paying homage to early 2000s running, the DMX Trail Runner has the kind of chunky, teched-out DNA that created a frenzy for more up-market shoes like the Balenciaga Trail. Built with lightweight mesh uppers and TPU cage, the DMX Trail Shadow is still one of the most versatile trail runners in 2020.
Air Jordan 4
Recently celebrating its 30th anniversary, the Air Jordan 4 continues to expand its wings across the sneaker pantheon. An electric remix of the OG Air Max 95, the latest AJ4 colourway employs heavy doses of nostalgic flare, sparking neon volts to commemorate Air Max Day earlier this year. With Nike Air branding on the heel, and alternating hues of 'Wolf Grey' and 'Anthracite', this one is straight gold from the Jumpman vault.
