A War on Wallets and High-Fashion Love Affairs This June
The month of May has come and gone. We witnessed insane releases, major Ls, painstaking Ws and, at the end of it all, we came out as more well-rounded sneakerheads. With May carrying some heavy hitters, we thought that June would give our wallets time to breathe, and maybe even allow us to save some dollarydoos instead of adding a couple of new pairs to the ol’ collection.
Oh, how wrong we were…
Fasten your seatbelts folks, June just turned it up a notch.
June 1 is the Smoking Gun
If June begins with all your money suddenly disappearing, the smoking gun will be that very first day of the month: June 1. On that very first day we have an onslaught coming from Team Swoosh, with two colourways of the Air Fear of God 1, as well as DeAaron Fox’s Air Max 1, and a pair of Rasheed Wallace Air Force 1s. Not to mention a small sprinkle of killer GR heat that’s coming your way!
Don’t think we forgot about Pride Month! For those who’re reppin’ that rainbow loud and proud, there are a few releases that celebrate the LGBTQ community. From Nike we have the coloured Swoosh AM90, loud 720, and hectic 270. And from Team Trefoil we've got a toned down Continental 80, UltraBOOST, and a gradient-soled Ozweego.
Yeezys for everyone
We thought the past few months carried too many Yeezy releases, from a slew of 350 V2s to a scatter of 700s. However, we just found out that we ain’t seen anything yet. Taking a look at the Yeezy lineup for next month we realised not one, not two, but six Yeezys will be releasing! Strap in folks, Kanye just started a war on our wallets.
High Fashion Love Affairs
The Virgil Abloh x Nike love affair continues, and this time they’ve taken it to the track with the Zoom Terra Kiger 5. Arriving this June, we’re keen to see what these are worn with. It promises to make a very interesting ‘Here’s How People Are Styling’ post once they hit the streets.
However, that’s not the only high fashion love affair that continues this June. Undercover is still keeping the spark alive with a couple of Day Breaks featuring an aggressive heel unit. Who will you be choosing? Virgil or Jun?
The Tiger Snake Emerges
We recently dropped our exclusive ASICS GEL-Lyte III ‘Tiger Snake’ featuring a hectic box, and if you weren’t able to secure yourself a pair during the initial release, don’t fret, because a wider release is incoming. Destined for June 1, these will also be a factor in filing for bankruptcy early on in the month. Peep our Where to Buy post if you’re hunting down your size!
Sneakerness Hits The Venice of the North
After a killer Sneakerness in London and Zurich during the the month of May, they're now planning on coming to Amsterdam! Shops and private sellers will have a large presence, so get your tickets here and head on down between June 1-2.
