New Balance 1906R - size? Exclusive
Drawing inspiration from retro running silhouettes, the New Balance 1906R “Cordura Pack” has been one of the most anticipated releases of the year. The premium silhouette employs an aesthetic that nods to trainers of yesteryear with mesh netted and leather uppers wrapping the shoe.
The first of the duo wraps the sneaker’s upper in white and blue tones while orange takes over the lacing system rounding out the old-school sports style. By contrast, the second 1906R size? exclusive guarantees to turn heads in a mint green ensemble, donning eye-complimented with black accents. Shock absorbing N-ergy technology delivers a responsive ride and has comfort covered while the integrated Nlock lacing system offers an optimal fit and feel.
Vans Anaheim Factory Old Skool & Authentic 44 DX - size? Exclusive
Playing tribute to Vans’ first factory in Anaheim, California, the 'Anaheim Pack' carries all the throwback details including the original bumper plate branding, side stripe and grippy outsole. Both silhouettes are draped in patterned uppers rich in colour and feature Vans’ CMEVA-based low-profile foam sock liner that’s anatomically contoured for quick, responsive cushioning.
adidas Originals 'All Team' - size? Exclusive
Ones for fans of the more minimal side of life, the adidas Originals 'All Team' - size? Exclusive boasts a classic streamlined silhouette with plenty of throwback details. These include serrated 3-Stripes, Trefoil insignias and sticky rubber soles for sure grip. Super versatile, these will bring a tear to the eye of 3-Stripe enthusiasts.
New Balance 550 'College Pack' Restock - size? Exclusive
The 550 is one of the most eye-catching out of the vast New Balance archive; first released in 1989, the model was originally a basketball silhouette. One of our favourite NB designs, we have reimagined the design with a crisp colourway, ready for your seasonal rotation.
Our exclusive 550 still radiates ‘80s b-ball nostalgia, arriving with mesh detailing, plus smooth and perforated leather on the upper. While white dominates the trainer, hits of bold orange stand out the most, more notably on the signature ‘N’ logos and 550 branding.
To balance out the colours, the laces and midsole are coated in cream, while the outsole continues the grey and orange tones. To sign things off, the shoe features further tonal branding on the midsole, plus there is a large NB-branded patch on the tongue.
