Crepcheck is back, and what have we got in store for you this week?
After their first collab a few months ago, UNDEFEATED, Bape and Adidas have joined forces again to bring us another buff collaboration – the SS80V Part 2. The shoe features bape camo under Adidas’ three stripes, and comes in either royal blue or black. The shoe is finished with an off-white toe cap and sole, and all three brands’ logos are displayed in bright gold foil across the shoe. These will sell out fast, so grab a pair as early as you can on the 10th October from Footpatrol, END or Sneakersnstuff to name a few retailers.
Next up we come to Saucony, a brand continuing to grow in popularity after making a sudden comeback into the sneaker scene in recent years. The Saucony x West NYC Shadow 90 ‘Saltwater’ takes inspiration from the Saltwater fishing experience, bringing us a classic Saucony silhouette in grey, purple, coral pink and carbon fibre.The shoe is made with interesting materials too – the carbon fire on the heel tab and Saucony logo echoes robust fishing rods, while grip tape is used on the heel and toe of the shoe to mirror the feel of non-skid materials found on boats. The off-white tab on the heel is a tribute to the bottom of boats that have been discoloured by barnacles and sea salt. Grab a pair on the 10th October from Footpatrol, END or Sneakersnstuff as well as a handful of other stores.
Finally, we have another plain but beautiful release from Nike in the form of the Nike Air Max Premium Leather pack. The shoe sees the Air Max 90 and Air Max One silhouettes coated in a matching clean grey. The uppers are made of premium nubuck suede, and the soft grey colour is carried onto the midsole which is then accented by a gum outer sole. Make your feet extra icy this winter by copping a pair from 8am at Nike, 8am at Size?, 00:00 from END or at 8am from Offspring on the 9th October, amongst other retailers.
