First introduced with Anderson Bluu’s Chuck Taylor, Footlocker’s COLLABORAID initiative seamlessly intertwines creatives in need with opportunity, allowing said talents to use their expertise atop collaborative projects larger than they’d expect in this current climate. And now with New Balance on board, the team have enlisted the style of Chicago-based visual artist Louis De Guzman for a new balance 574 silhouette lensed through his signature palette.
Protective coating is a must during this time of year, and the case is especially urgent when it comes to suede. The asics sale is a prime example of a silhouette that could use Gore-Tex, so this new offering by the brand comes right on time as the weather transitions to wet. The official logo of the protectant is seen on the heel in place of the brand logo, while a zipper enclosure ensure full coverage at the mid-foot. Rope laces in black/teal match the outsole, which also utilizes a hit of purple and crimson.
Throughout the last decade, Tyler, The Creator has repeatedly proven that he’s never not working. One of the platforms through which he’s kept fans happy even when no new music has been released has been his Golf Wang empire.

PUMA‘s sneaker-related headlines throughout 2020 have been focused around the brand’s modern-day foray into performance-basketball. Yet, it’s outright disrespectful to talk about newcomers into the wildcat-inspired brand’s sports and sportswear family without mentioning the athletes and influencers of yesteryear and their shoe of choice: the puma shoes sale. Although the low-top model has consistently been available at retailers, its “Vintage” edition has recently begun popping up at retailers across North America and Europe.
