Le Sigh. There are so many dope colorways being released this week, and to be honest, I am feeling a little overwhelmed. I know last week was very disappointing for some folks—a lot of us didn’t get the sneaker drops we wanted (one of these days, we are going to have a very real conversation about resellers), but alas, this is a new week with new opportunities! I realize I may sound like a Disney character, but I truly have high hopes for this new round of releases. So without further ado, let’s get into it.
Release Date: 2/19
Okay, I’m making an exception to the rule with these because this was technically last week, but the ‘Super Sleeks’ are a thing of beauty. I copped a couple of items from the Icy Park release last week, but for some reason, I can’t stop thinking about these sneakers. The platform sole and the neutral colors give the shoe a smooth classy look pairable with just about anything in your wardrobe. You could wear them with athletic apparel, or dress them for a formal look. Luckily there are still a few pairs in stock, but I imagine this won’t be the case for long. A solid pick-up for sure.
Release Date: 2/25
I think the ‘Football Grays’ could be a good replacement for those unable to get the ‘Silver Toes’ last week. Nike seems to really be feeling springtime pastels at the moment, and this shoe is a nice mixture of light taupe with baby blue overlays. Not too overstated, but still eye-catching. Plus, they are high tops (since y’all swear up and down you don’t like mids), and you can never go wrong with highs. I think this a great addition for any level of sneaker fandom personally!
Release Date: 2/25
I had a strong inkling that this shoe would be hard to come by, and I guess I was right. Honestly, I’m surprised these didn’t come out for Valentine’s Day a couple of weeks ago! The pink hues combined with the rose design on the midsole just screams ‘romantic,’ but I digress. The pink is light enough not to be considered a ‘bold’ colorway, and I think you could swap out the laces for white ones (or even red) to give the shoe different looks. ‘Forces’ have always gone well with a number of outfits, but for some reason, I’m getting pantsuit vibes with these. Anywho, on to the next!
Out of all the ‘Yeezys’ scheduled to release this week, I believe the ‘Ash Blues’ might be the best. I personally love ‘Yeezys,’ but sometimes I have a hard time figuring out how exactly I can pair them with certain items in my closet. I know some have expressed similar sentiments, so I think these are a good choice. The ‘Ash Pearls’ feature splashes of dark grey and blue and are definitely more subtle compared to previous 350 releases. This is a great shoe for beginning ‘Yeezy’ wearers and a good addition for any collector itching for a new purchase.
I’m breaking tradition again because these were released last week as well. Honestly, I feel like I haven’t included enough releases from Puma, New Balance, etc., and I’m going to do a better job of that going forward. As you all know, Puma has become synonymous with their ‘Suede Classics’ over the years, and their recent ‘Suede Campaign’ featured some pretty notable names, including LaMelo Ball and Lauren London. The classics are loaded with colors and have tons of sizes available for men, women, and children. I personally own a pair of the ‘Suedes,’ and they are definitely one of my tried and trues!
