Artist and jordan 4 metallic purple release date collaborator Kaws has added to his collection of exclusive sneakers with a custom pair created just for him. Kaws posted the sneakers, a white pair of the Air Jordan 1 Low No Swoosh, on his Instagram on Friday. The sneaker is relatively simple, planting Kaws' x marks on the heel. The base colorway here first released in July 2020.
Clad in of-the-90s flair, uppers on this asics gel lyte iii smoke bluegrand shark maintain their beloved mixed-materials construction and split tongue. The latter is overtaken by the aforementioned vibrant hue, which also suede overlays throughout the midfoot, accents at the heel, and outsole tread. Rich violet joins the mix across the midfoot and at the lateral forefoot, creating an arrangement reminiscent of footwear synonymous with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Elsewhere, a "yin-and-yang" combination complements the retro palette throughout the remainder of the ASICS model, but both are interrupted by faint purple details underneath the profile vector logos and at the heel.
Between the two trims, the converse chuck 70 low top black best displays the purposely flipped arrangement given its taller silhouette. Canvas from vamp to top of the tongue, as well as at the pair's spine, boast rough edges. Elsewhere, "Converse All Star" logos on the medial collar further contributed to the model's "inside-out" design as they're recessed instead of pronounced. While the Chuck 70 Ox doesn't feature the iconic profile insignia, it features its co-star's aforementioned details. Both silhouettes sit atop a classic "Egret" midsole donning a black license plate. Outsoles, however, indulge in a rich brown hue complete with slight speckling throughout to ostensibly create a "DIY" aesthetic.
A new duo of new balance 1500 animal pack brown have surfaced as the silhouette has made a return for the Summer. Both colorways use a combination of black, teal, white, and pink that may have many people thinking "South Beach." The first pair utilizes white as the dominant color as teal can be seen on the heel and outlining the "N" branding. Black is then seen on the midfoot and outsole, while pops of pink land on the mudguard toe. The second pair uses black on the majority of the upper with grey on the heel, pink on the "N" branding, white on the midfoot and midsole, and teal on the toe/mudguard and the heel branding. Both pairs are constructed out of suede and nylon making them ideal for the Summer.
