Another weekend gone, another war with releases. This weekend we see the release of Kanye West’s 2nd sneaker installment wit adidas in the form of Yeezy 350 Boost. So much love and hate for the pair, we have sneakerheads & hypebeast saying they look so much like Roshe Ones. But of course, it still sells out, lines still long, with plenty of salty sour grapes not getting any at the end of the day. Locally, we have two stores that release: adidas Originals at Pacific Plaza ( 34 pairs via first come first serve) & Limited Edt. Chamber ( about 30 pairs via raffle/ballot). Hope whoever wanted it gets to appreciate it. You only need one or two, not 20.

Next hyped release has to be the Air Jordan 1 ‘Shattered Backboard’ to commemorate Michael Jordan’s Nike Exhibition game on 25th August 1985. Well, if scoring 30 points wasn’t impressive, what about shattering the backboard in his iconic one-handed jam? And thus this pair was released with a really impressive looking soft tumbled leather(its super sexy leather i swear to God!) and a real nice insole print of shattered backboard. Locally, we have them released in Limited Edt Ballpark @ 313(via raffle)/Hoops Factory @ Lucky Plaza(via member FCFS) & Nike @ Bugis+ (via FCFS priority to member). Looking at it, we have about 200+ pairs altogether in Singapore.

Of course, there are other releases like the very unlikely collaboration between Wale x Ruvilla store x Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Bottle Rocket. Why unlikely? Because Wale’s been rocking Nike almost all of his sneakerhead life you would think his first collaboration would be with Nike. Good looking colourway nonetheless. I would grab a pair but no news if it’ll be released locally.

Moving on, let’s see whats on feet from the HYP crew last week..

Air Force 1 YOTD (Year of the Dragon)

“One of my favourite AF1 in my stash! The scales, woven tongue and printed insole is what made me fall in love with this pair all over again!

In my opinion:

The best fit with this would be either white berms or long khakis.”

Disney (Cinderella) x Reebok Insta Pumpfury

“Being a fan of Disney, especially its Princesses, and the brand Reebok itself,  this collaboration is definitely a treat for me!  With its iridescent look that resembles a glass slipper, and that significant clock that is about to strike 12 on its pump button, it is almost as though im living that princess dream of every girl. In addition, a butterfly is added to the back on each side as well as a pair of graphic insoles.

Nothing beats to having all three favorites in one product. “

Thats all for today, lets see what other hype happenings is going down this coming week.

Happened on 25th August 1985 during a Nike exhibition game.

Bringing back older colorways seems to be Nike’s biggest approach to capture sneakerheads’ attention.

In the latest Nike Presto release, we see the swoosh bringing back the Lightning.

Back by popular demand from its Xeno Collection, the ZX Flux released in 2 colorways.

Take your pick, Light Onix or Xeno Black?

BAPE X UNDFTD X Adidas, probably the biggest collaboration that never fail to tingle our senses.

Back again and big on the Superstar 80s, one will not miss the iconic gold embossed logos at the exterior of this SS80s. Royal blue BAPE camo and black BAPE camo are spotted on the lining of the white and black pair respectively. (BAPE heads in this camo are subtle compared to the last tri-collab project)

Ronnie Fieg named this “The Sakura Project” by taking inspirations from Japan’s Cherry Blossom Trees and the culture of flower appreciation.

In this latest project for Kith NYC, we see the remodeled version of its predecessor to suit the modern taste – Puma R698 Mid.
