Where to buy Jordan 3 Pine Green, Yeezy Foam Runner Vermillion and more
Welcome to SNX DLX, our weekly roundup of the best sneakers on the market. Over the past couple of weeks at SNX, we’ve been eagerly awaiting this year’s special Halloween drops that roll out every year like clockwork from Nike, Adidas and the other big brands. Wellâ¦ they’re here, and they’re so hideous and lazy that not a single one of them made our weekly roundup. We cannot, in good faith, recommend this shoe to you for example. Or this half-done effort.
Nike makes billions of dollars every year, and all they can give us is a glow-in-the-dark Air Presto and Air Force 1? Do better Nike.
Luckily, this week is filled with collaborations and dope colorways that you’re sure to get a lot more mileage out of than a whimsical Halloween drop. This week we have an October red Yeezy, Billie Eilish’s latest Jordan collaboration, and like every week, another must-have Jordan colourway just waiting to join your wardrobe as a new pair of kicks. favorite.
Let’s move on to the best sneakers of this week.
Nike WMNS Dunk High Up Varsity Maize / Summit White
Kicking off the week is an exclusive WMNS drop in two colorways of Nike Dunk High Up in Summit White and Varsity Maize. The High Up is a mixed take on the usual Dunk High style, featuring wild overlays, alternate panel construction, and a mini and Oversized swoosh (one of which is embroidered) all on a stacked midsole.
The Summit White iteration features white leather mixed with Sail accents while the Varsity Maize features a much bolder design built on a Varsity Maize base with Midnight Navy and University Red accents. Both are great and offer something very different.
Yeezy Foam Runner Vermilion
I wish I had a time machine so I could go back seven years and show every Kanye West fan – who in 2014 was everyone – this vermilion red Yeezy Foam Runner. Brains would melt, not because the Foam Runner is a ridiculous (albeit very comfortable) shoe, but because 2014 is also the year that Kanye and Nike ditched the iconic Air Yeezy 2 Red October.
It’s not quite the same shade of red, but it’s an interesting throwback. Fans of Ye’s shoes have been waiting for years for a Yeezy that attempts to capture some of the magic of the Red October, the fact that Kanye decided to reuse the color on a Foam Runner and not a more traditional sneaker is hilarious. Kanye is still trolling, even though his music has fallen.
If you are purchasing a pair of foam runners, be sure to order a full size for the perfect fit.
It’s punk rock baby. Are they ugly? Absoutely. The same goes for “daddy’s shoes,” but Kanye has managed to trick sneaker fans into believing they haven’t for nearly a decade now. Maybe Billie can do the same.
The Zoom Air Comfort has been designed with comfort in mind and features a genuine and synthetic leather base, promising a break-in feel.
The Air Jordan 1 Zoom Air Comfort Gold Laser is expected to release on October 28 for a retail price of $ 190. Get a pair through the Nike SNKRS app.
