My personal favorite sneaker of all time

Retail: $190

Resell: ~$2000

From the best collaboration  to go down in Nike history, the Off-White and Nike collab designed by Virgil Abloh, in my opinion the greatest east of all time. The shoe itself looks deconstructed, however that where the beauty lies. Virgil is following this Japanese philosophy that states that there is some kind of beauty in destruction, enough to satisfy the human eye. I totally agree with this statement and this sneaker is a great example of such. Paying attention to details is important when looking at this silhouette. One of my personal favorite detail is that the shoe comes with 3 shoelaces and each with a different color (blue, white, and orange). This basically gives you the choice to rock the shoe with your liking and style, if you are subtle type of person you would go for the white. However, if you are type to want to get stares at your shoes, then the flashy orange laces are for you.

Actually like Virgil’s absolute first plan on the outline, this one again draws motivation from an exemplary Air Jordan 1 colorway. To explain: “UNC” is another way to say “University of North Carolina”, which is Michael Jordan’s institute of matriculation. The North Carolina Tar Heels ball group’s outfits broadly include Carolina Blue and White. Obviously Virgil again puts his own twist on the forthcoming OFF-WHITE collab. Very much like on 2017’s “Chicago” colorway, the collar overlay sports an unobtrusive dark tone. Orange pronunciations at that point come in type of the uncovered stitchings on the Swoosh, while a “Grayish for NIKE” print graces the inward sidewalls. What’s more, obviously, the mark “AIR” and “SHOELACES” letterings likewise top off this plan.

Sneaker to watch out for this week

Retail: $100

Resell: ~200+

Name: “College Navy/Wolf Grey/University Red”

The hottest silhouette Nike offered this year. The legendary, skater loving sneaker, the Nike Sb dunk has a new color way this week. As Nike calls it, “the College Navy/Wolf Grey/University Red.” This silhouette has been awaited by many sneaker enthusiasts throughout the world. The Nike sb dunk has been trending for the past year, after the famous collaboration from the brand Off-White of Virgil Abloh and Nike released their twist on the sneaker. With this collaboration coming into life, sb dunks have seen an increase in interests by the youth. Therefore when the people demand interest, Nike always listen and releases more color ways to satisfy its loyal fans. With the latest sb dunk to come out on April 1st, fingers crossed its not one of those April fools pranks and the sneaker really drops. Nike does have a history of pranking its fans with April Fools drops.

Not at all like the greater part of the outline and its Dunk High partner’s latest courses of action, the approaching pair enjoys a dull hued base. “School Naval force” makes way for the Air Jordan 1 Low-suggestive framing in a “Wolf Dim” tone. Collar and inward covering gloat a similar cool shade, yet pick an apparently silk material that proffers a gleaming interpretation of the downplayed shading. Somewhere else, Nike marking on the tongue name and heel go amiss from the upper’s two-tone nature for “College Red” pizazz. Bottom units underneath balance the shoes with a white padded sole and semi-clear, grayish outsole.

Top 3 sneakers must have for the spring

3. The Sacai Nike Green Gusto

Retail: $120

Resell: $400+

This collaboration between the high end japanese brand and the all american Nike is perfect for the green colors of spring. With a green looking silhouette the sneaker plays a great role in blending in for the season. The secondary yellow matches with the sun on a beautiful spring day. The intricate design on this sneaker makes perfect for the spring. Not only does the sneaker look appealing to the eye, but it is extremely comfortable. That is why it is surnamed the waffle, soft, cloudy, and dough on the walk just like a spongey waffle. Even though the sneaker was released two years ago, it always makes a comeback during the beginning of spring time. The vibrant colors the shoe possesses fit perfectly with any t-shirt and jeans, however, you should always match them with white socks.

 

2. Vans

Retail:$60

You can never go wrong with vans. This iconic skateboard silhouette from Los Angelos has always been a trend among teens. A very affordable shoe amongst most teens and the shoe itself can be worn with almost anything. The black and white seats perfectly on the shoe, making a great night out with friends type of shoe for the spring time. I personally think it looks great to have some pair of vans in your rotation, more specifically the white and black color way.

1. New Balance 990 v5

Retail: $160

For the last and best shoe for spring time is the New Balance 990 with the grey color way. This sneaker can be referred as a dad shoe with its resemblance to stereotypical dad sneakers that are trending these past years. A very comfortable shoe with a great design. This shoe can also be worn with anything, but better with grey sweatpants and white socks. Great shoe to jog with or to have a stroll at the park with friends. The color grey and white looks incredible with the silhouette.
