Another exciting week across the board in the sneaker world as we take a look at the latest trainer drops coming up this weekend!
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW COTM YELLOW JEWEL
Got your fave colour yet? No worries. The Colour of the Month series lets you feed your need while celebrating a little-known piece of Nike history—the original Colour of the Month series, back in 1984, may have saved the AF-1 from extinction.
That's right, a reissue was uncertain in the shoe's beginning but sports shops in Baltimore saw them selling like hotcakes and knew the AF-1 would become synonymous with street fashion and culture. So, they asked for custom colourways to sell from their shop windows ... and the rest is history. From pristine materials to the high-paced Speed Yellow colourway and even a shoe-cleaning toothbrush, this edition delivers a lesson in coveted off-court style.
Every time you rock 'em, make sure you think of the visionary shopkeepers in Baltimore that made it all happen.
Style: FJ1044-700 | Release Date: 4th May
NIKE AIR JORDAN 2 CEMENT GREY
Nothing says summer quite like the clean lines of the AJ2. Cool, refined and easy to style, the classic Jordan look that set the stage for a footwear dynasty keeps you styled right in the present tense. Italian craftsmanship and premium materials make this refined take on the '87 design a sophisticated upgrade for any outfit. And this fresh colourway? Well, it needs no introduction.
Style: DR8884-100 | Release Date: 6th May
NEW BALANCE X AIME LEON DORE 1906R M1906RL1
Aimé Leon Dore’s take on the 1906R brings a timeless design sensibility to the overtly technical aesthetic of 2000s running. The 1906R, like its cousins the 2002R and the 860v2, is led by a sole unit featuring a combination of flexible ACTEVA LITE cushioning, shock absorbing N-ergy, and segmented ABZORB SBS pods at the heel.
This hi-tech approach is also reflected in the 1906R’s upper design, which features open-holed mesh and a series of curvilinear synthetic overlays. A colorway featuring shades of white and green, with subtle gold accents rounds out this refined execution of high-performance heritage.
Style: M1906RL1 | Release Date 4th May
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW FOUR HORSEMEN
To celebrate Nike and LeBron's double-decade partnership, we're bringing back a banger. Originally a player exclusive, this AF-1 is now for everyone. Like knights on a chess board, the shoe's design nods to the strategic moves LeBron and his inner circle famously played out on the court. We're guessing you know that Deep Forest green is an homage to LeBron's high school. And you probably know whose initials are on the heels. But none of that matters unless you know one more thing—what are you gonna wear with these kicks?
Style: FB9128-100 | Release Date: 5th May
NIKE AIR MAX PULSE COBBLESTONE
Keeping it real, the Air Max Pulse pulls inspiration from the London music scene, bringing an underground touch to the iconic Air Max line. Its textile-wrapped midsole and vacuum-sealed accents keep 'em looking fresh and clean, while colours inspired by the London music scene give your look the edge. Point-loaded Air cushioning—revamped from the incredibly plush Air Max 270—delivers better bounce, helping you push past your limits.
Style: DR0453-004 | Release Date: 4th May
