Nike Flyknit Racer White/Black-Volt

nike-2014-summer-flyknit-racer-pack-1Flyknit racer was my sneaker of choice last summer and it looks like I’ll be beating the same this summer because the Beaverton powerhouse has officially added another colourway to its summer offering. Balancing some bolder colour choices including a new Volt mock-up as well as a Laser Crimson iteration with a low-key monochrome version in black and white. Only available in the US up to now but expect a UK release soon.

After getting a preview of the EQT Cushion collection, adidas Originals presents the EQT Running Support ’93 pack. As the name of the pack informs, the EQT Running Support was introduced over a decade ago but thanks to groundbreaking technology such as TORSION and its heel Impact Cell, the Running Support is still very much a formidable trainer to this day. Not a detail was missed for this reissue, from the wraparound tongue, structural eyelets, down to its three stripes that trail from upper to outsole. Look for these to drop early February, and to be honest I can’t wait for the bottom colourway.

adidas Element Refine JS

adidas’s latest running shoe is the lightweight and environmentally friendly Element Refine JS. For me I like it because it seems to be a cross between Roshe Run & a Flyknit racer which has been 2 of my fav shoes in the past year.

The shoe features a unique circular mesh fabric upper produced using lessons learned during the development of Primeknit. Strategically placed material splits minimize the amount of material required and support within the upper comes from the strategic placement of both the seams and the 3 Stripe overlay. The seams, though cut and sewn through a traditional process, are anything but and have been placed using insights gleamed from adidas’s extensive research in the running category. The most efficient cut and sew shoe in adidas’s history, with a 90% material usage efficiency, the Element Refine JS is definitely a shoe to keep an eye on this season. Stay tuned for more details and its winter release.
