size? previews June with Crepe City
We’re back with the latest edition of size? previews, designed to help you plan your footwear purchases for the month accordingly. After last months special episode from the PUMA Archive, we’re back to our regular layout to showcase what we’re looking forward to arriving at size? in June. This month we headed back down south to our Brixton store to meet up with Morgan Weekes (@morprime), one of the driving forces behind Crepe City, Europe’s largest sneaker buying and selling event. Morgan’s taste in shoes is very eclectic, with favourites ranging from classic 90’s releases such as the adidas EQT range, Nike Spiridon and Air Max 95, to the latest innovations making use of Boost and VaporMax.
This month’s sub-conscious running theme seems to be inspired by the past once again, with both modern updates of original shoes and brand new silhouettes in the line-up.
Nike’s quickstrike program keeps on rolling with the latest ‘Snakeskin’ pack, of which we previewed both the Air Max 90 and 95. The DNA of the Air Mariah has been updated within a new show that blends it with the spirit of Nike’s celebrated Flyknit Racer.
adidas Originals drop the Indoor TT Super down from Spezial level for two more accessible colourways that are reminiscent of shoes gone by from the brands vast archive. Pharrell Williams’ latest creation for his signature line replaces the Primeknit found on the original with and soft, flexible mesh, utilising a simple colourway that nods to one of the brands greatest ever shoes, the Stan Smith.
Lastly, PUMA’s Rainbow make’s a return for 2017, a vintage running shoe that’s seemingly impossible to find much information about, but stands tall alongside the other great original releases we’ve seen resurface from the brand this year.
