To all those sneakerheads out there, we know you’ve been waiting. As we slowly step out of the lockdown, we’re back in business.

We’ve recognised this type of sneaker silhouette as one of the more futuristic ones. The upper is an elegant play of layers and fabrics, coming together to create a spectacular running shoe in both form and function. Inside, RB fits their Floatride Energy Foam responsive cushioning to keep your feet light and comfortable.

Another day, another Air Force 1s. For this time, they give it a cool pineapple twist. Refreshing this legendary B-Ball shoe, the Swoosh logo and heel feature richly textured plant material crafted from pineapple leaf fibre. At its base, it’s a soft shade of coconut milk, keeping up with its tropical theme. Check out that pineapple motif on its tongue, too.

The Three Stripes have always been enthusiastic about Pride month as we see a capsule dedicated to the LGBTQ community and their culture. Part of the adidas Pride collection, these shoes combine inspiration from the hardwood with messages of love. This is expressed with the special “Love Unites” graphics and symbols all over the pair. What’s your take on this one?

Price: Rs 9,999.

PUMA claims that the design of this pair is inspired by the movement and motion of city life. The Rider line has always been dynamic by nature, and they prove that once again with this fit. In terms of fabric, the pair is draped in premium leather, suede and nylon. More so, we see an IMEVA midsole and rubber outsole that provide lightweight comfort.

Something special for all the runners out there. The Adizero never disappoints, and this time they have something stunning. It boasts a highly durable Lightstrike Eva midsole foam paired with EnergyRods, a soft upper. For grip, you get the continental rubber outsole too. A winning combination, if you ask me.
