What is SNX to do when Ye decides to drop not just one, but three new sneakers in one week? We could devote the entire article to the new YEEZYs, deep diving into each stitch and intricate detail, but… that sounds wack. Why should Kanye command all the attention in this column? He already gets it in the real world.
Instead, we made the call to lump the YEEZYs together so that we’d have four slots to celebrate the other dope designs dropping this week, to which there are many.
Here are all the best shoes releasing this week. Resist the temptation to give all your money to Ye and check them out!
ASICS Japanese Racers Pack
ASICS Japanese Racers pack perfectly combines style with performance. You don’t need to be a runner to rock the neon colorways of the Tarther and Skysensor silhouettes, in fact, we can’t even imagine ourselves running in them. We’d probably spend too much time staring down at our feet, which would inevitably lead to crashes.
Featuring a SPEAVAFOAM sole, both the Tarther and Skysensor are composed of primarily knitted textile and suede, and are launching in three eye-catching colorways. The Skysensor will drop in Aquarium Blue while the Tarther will release in both Hot Pink and Safety Yellow. I know sneaker colorway names are generally ridiculous, but Safety Yellow has GOT to be the nerdiest name for a colorway ever. They still look cool though!
The ASICS Japanese Racers Pack is set to drop on June 8th, with both Tarther colorways retailing for $265, and the Skysensor for $270. Pick up a pair at select ASICS retailers or ASICS online store.
Nike Air Max2 Triple White
The Nike Air Max2, releasing in a Triple White colorway, is the ultimate dad shoe of the summer. Featuring a breathable mesh upper, soft foam midsole, and a classic Air Max dual pressure heel unit, the Air Max2 takes everything worth loving about the original 1994 release and updates the design with more contemporary accommodations, like the Air Unit-cushioned sole.
Could this be the last summer that the Dad shoe reigns supreme? Let’s hope!
The Nike Air Max2 in Triple White is set to release on June 7th for a retail price of $140. Pick up a pair at Nike’s online store.
AAPE by A Bathing Ape Dimension Collection
AAPE, BAPE’s sportswear division is releasing its first sneaker collection for Summer 2019, dubbed the Dimensions Collection. Each pair features liberal use of 3M detailing, and are composed of premium lightweight materials for comfortability and utility. The sneakers are all the same silhouette, so we aren’t exactly sure how this is a “collection,” but hey, they look fly regardless.
The Dimensions collection will release in three colorways, white and orange, red, white, and blue, and an all-black variation for you edge lords out there.
The Dimensions collection is set to drop on June 8th and will retail for $166 per pair. Pick up a pair at AAPE retailers or on the AAPE webstore.
Nike UNDERCOVER Daybreak
Japanese designer Jun Takahashi has once again teamed up with Nike for an UNDERCOVER summer drop, this time choosing Nike’s not-often-utilized Daybreak silhouette as its base. Comprised of suede and nylon upper, the Daybreaks feature race car spoiler-like heel construction and paint-speckled accents across the midsole and heel counter, with duel Nike and UNDERCOVER branding on the back and tongue.
The UNDERCOVER Daybreaks will release in two colorways, a black and white, and blue and black variation, with the European market scoring yellow, green, and red pairs sometime later this year.
The UNDERCOVER Nike Daybreak is set to drop on June 7th and will retail for $160. Pick up a pair at Nike’s online store and select retailers.
Kanye West All Black YEEZYs
Over two years ago, Kanye mentioned that one day his dream of “YEEZYs for Everyone” would come true — we just thought that meant he wanted to make them cheaper, not make and release so many different designs that we’re all bound to just have at least one YEEZY colorway in our closets. This week Kanye will drop three different YEEZYs, all in black.
The YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 will release in both a Black Reflective colorway and a Black Static Non-Reflective. Both are dope, but we prefer the speckled “Reflective” version. Do we have to choose? Yes. We all have to choose people, we can’t afford all three of these YEEZYs. The third design will be the 700 V2 Vanta — which will release in adult, kid, and infant sizes. YEEZYs for the whole family!
