7 Pairs Of Kicks You Should Add To Your Lineup Before Summer's Over
Before you finish checking off all your "lituations" on this summer's bucketlist you might want to make sure your kick-game is on point for the functions. Here's a list of sneakers that might just be the missing piece to your summer "fit-list."
1. Travis Scott x Nike's Air Force 1 "Sail"
"Its upper is an off-white color that is threaded with laces of the same hue. A Cactus Jack swatch lays on the top next to the interchangeable Swoosh logo. A traditional gum outsole completes the highly-anticipated drop." - HypeBae.com
These limited-edition sneakers will be available at select retail locations on August 10 for a $150 USD retail price. So don't get caught sleeping!
2. The adidas Yung-1 purple/white “Frieza” colorway
This fresh take on the adidas Yung-1 silhouette is exactly what you've been waiting for. The purple suede, grey mesh and clean white midsole not only give this sneaker a sexy, more feminine make-over but it's the perfect combination for a complete summer look. Details haven't been released on an official drop date just yet, but we'll keep our ear to the streets.
3. Sean Wotherspoon’s Air Max 1/97
This unique collaboration between sneaker aficionado Sean Wotherspoon and Nike has been selling out since it's US release in March. Word on the street is Nike is planning a massive restock of the popular sneakers. So, if you can get your hands on a pair it's definitely a worthy addition to the collection.
4. KITH's Latest Capsule With Coca-Cola & Converse
KITH‘s latest collection is a collaboration with both Coca-Cola and Converse that is guaranteed to elevate your summer street style. The capsule features custom high-top Chuck All Star 70's decked out with unique Coca-cola designs. One of the dopest parts about this collection is that each shoe design is dedicated to a specific country. Details like stitched, embroidered logos located on the side and heel of each model in the local language of the specified country take these kicks to another level.
If you're interested in snagging a pair the KITH x Coca Cola x Converse collection will be available on August 18.
5. Converse Embroidered Floral Chuck '70s
Nothing says summer style like florals, and these embroidered Chuck's are giving ALL the summer vibes. The collection features three high and low-top Chuck ’70s in several colors including “Punch Coral,” “Turmeric Gold” and “Washed Denim.” The low-top version are available in “Obsidian” blue, “Driftwood” off-white and “Papyrus,” (a light beige tone).
With prices starting at $75, how could you not want to grab a pair?
6. FILA Disruptor 2 - Gold Colorway
Is it just us or does gold seem to pair well with everything? The metallic gold body and chunky sole makes this sneaker perfect for just about any look. The Disruptor 2 gold colorway has been all over our feeds since they first dropped a few months ago and if you're still in search of that perfect summer sneaker, here she is.
If gold isn't your cup of tea you can also find the shoe in a few other colorways including White, Metallic Rose Gold, or Metallic Silver. Even better news, you can cop a pair for only $75 on Lady Foot Locker's website!
7. Pharrell x adidas Originals Debut “SOLARHU” Pack
Pharrell Williams and adidas Originals have finally released their all new SOLARHU Fall/Winter18 collection of sneaker silhouettes. The designs, prints and patterns in the collection are directly influenced by East Africa, making this one of the most intricate collabs yet.
In an official statement, Pharrell Williams explained the inspiration behind the capsule:
“Africa is a beautiful continent and the origin of civilization. Running is a state of meditation. Why not go back to the motherland and take inspiration from such a vivid and rich culture? Why not create a tribute to this incredible sport?” - Hypebae.com
If you're sold on adding these kicks to the collection, the Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals “SOLARHU” will be up for grabs online at the adidas Originals web store and retail locations on August 18.
Summer might almost be over but don't worry, these kicks are fly enough that they can transition right into your fall wardrobe effortlessly.
