Editor’s picks: The newest sneaker drops and the ones we’re looking forward to

Our monthly drop list continues to grow as we showcase the hottest sneaker releases from your favourite brands; curating the most hyped releases and strongest silhouette/colorway combinations that should not be missed. From Nike’s Adapt capsule to Adidas hike boots, future meets fitness seems to be the trend for this month. Take a look at the hottest sneaker releases in October 2019.

Adidas Supercourt
Adidas Supercourt

Spearheading the ‘Home of Classics’ collection, the Supercourt is Adidas’ halo pair for 2019 and it’s pretty clear why. It celebrates 50 years of the Adidas white sneaker dynasty and as an ode, the updated Supercourt line is purely white with only minimal splashes of colour. The pair is available online and in stores for retail.

Price: Rs 7,999 onwards

Nike Air Vapormax Utility “Desert Sand”

Nike Air Vapormax Utility “Desert Sand”

Continuing the reign of the Vapormax is a brand new silhouette. The ‘Desert Sand’ hue makes a debut in this version, sitting on top of a familiar full-foot volt cushioning system that’s given extra bounce by a layer of Cushlon foam. This Vapormax 2019 Utility’s tan upper is highly technical and significantly more trek-ready than standard Vapormax designs. The pair will be available exclusively in stores later this winter.

Price: Rs 12,999 (approx).

YEEZY 500 High ‘Slate’

YEEZY 500 High ‘Slate’

The new 500s certainly look like a perfect winter shoe. The high-cut footwear features an updated construction, and  this time the YEEZY replaces the usual technical mesh textile with an elegant tonal blue neoprene paired with matching premium suede overlays. It still maintains the bulky design. The pair is currently making its way to India for a debut in December.

Price: Rs. 12,999 (approx)

Puma Legacy 68

Finally, PUMA have made their official basketball debut with three new sneakers, with the Legacy 68 being our favourite. The sneakers pack plenty of PUMA heritage and performance tech in one game-ready shoe. We also see historic nods to the legendary T7 Stripe as well as PUMA’s most forward-looking tech like HYBRID FOAM for cushion and responsiveness. The pair is available in stores and online for retail.

Price: Rs 8,999 onwards.

Converse All Star Pro Leather 2019

Converse All Star Pro Leather 2019

One of the coolest sneaker launches we’ve seen in a while, Converse revives an absolute classic. First introduced in 1976, the Converse Pro Leather is a bonafide basketball classic. Heralded as one of the most culturally significant on-court sneakers ever, it is a must-buy for every dunker. The pair will be available online on October 24, and later at select stores.
