@parley .tv's first venture onto the course was a memorable one. The knitted white uppers are interwoven blue and orange flecks for added flair.Down below, a full-length BOOST footbed and toothed outsole combine for one of the best fairway-ready comfort and support combos seen in the adi lineup. As you’d expect, each shoe is made of over 70 per cent high-performance recycled polyester yarn. A definite hole-in-one!

The early 2000s was arguably the most prolific period for the Nike Air Rift, spawning numerous permutations of the neck-snapping sandal-slash-sneaker. Highlights among OG reissues included slip-ons, pony hair-covered mid-tops, and even a Halle Berry collaboration! As the Rift celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, it begs the question: where are the 'Kenya' and 'Concord' 2020 retros? Visit the link in bio for a deep dive into one of Nike's goofiest yet greatest kicks of all time.
On the last stop of their Global Run World Tour, ASICS and Reigning Champ have been inspired by the French capital and created a mismatched GEL-Nimbus 22 ‘Paris Edition’. Showing off the shoes and accompanying apparel in the lookbook, artist André Saraiva is seen running through the Parisian streets. Link in bio for drop details.
Jaden Smith's sophomore effort on the New Balance Vision sees shades of classic palettes mildly toning down its very audacious silhouette. Visit the link in bio for more angles and the drop details 👀 @shopnicekicks
Calling all sneakerheads and denim-fanatics, we've finally received official release details for the whole @denham x Nike Air Max collection! Link in bio for the details ✂️
Rapping, acting, writing, and even a very short-lived NBA career are among the dotpoints on Percy Robert Miller – aka Master P’s CV. The ‘Ice Cream Man’ combined a number of those – ahem – talents and took them to Converse in 1999. He got his own signature sneaker, the Converse MP, and it came in a formidable amount of colour options too. Like his minutes on-court, the sneaker deal went out with a whimper, but not before a promotional single and CD that can still be found on eBay. This wasn’t the last time Master P worked with sneakers though. His current entrepreneurial venture, MoneYatti, is promised to be the ‘Bugatti of shoes’. Visit the link in bio for some other sneakers from 20 years ago that you may have forgotten about.
Converse continue to push boundaries with their design, crafting silhouettes that merge functionality with comfort, while also allowing for their signature clean and classic look that we’ve come to know and love. In-line with that ethos, we now have the rugged Chuck Taylor All Star Terrain – suitable for navigating the concrete jungle, and for hitting rugged mountain trails! Link in bio for the details. #ad
Leaked images have come through of the potential adidas UltraBOOST 2021! The most noticeable difference to last year’s edition is the enlarged BOOST unit down below. Link in bio for images of the three leaked colourways.
If you love the good old days, then @sneakerqueen would be on your radar. Julia has made the conscious choice to funnel her encyclopedic knowledge into blogging and holding events. We linked up with her as part of our Collector Spotlight series. Enjoy ⬇️⠀ ⠀ How have you stayed interested in the scene over the past two decades? ⠀ ⠀ My love story with sneakers is like any long-term relationship, based on a give and take. I have invested passion, time and money, and in return have travelled the globe to find a place in a worldwide network of like-minded nerds and styleheads. ⠀ ⠀ Can you explain the importance of making personal connections if you want to be successful? ⠀ ⠀ Connecting with people is key for not only realising your dreams, but to widen your horizon. If you have an idea, you have to share it to let it grow. ⠀ ⠀ How did your blog come about? Why use that as your major platform rather than just Instagram? ⠀ ⠀ I started my own blog to write about personal sneaker ambitions – and to nerd around. It is not orientated on feedback and likes, but rather a collection of my interests and memories. ⠀ ⠀ Can you give us a short summary of the projects you’ve been involved with lately? ⠀ ⠀ I spent some time in Tokyo to reconnect and nerd out with my Japanese sneaker community at the Nike OTC Meeting in January. Back in Germany, I visited adidas HQ to document and add some pieces to the in-house exhibition for the Superstar’s 50th anniversary. One place I always visit when I go to Herzo is the archive. I have such deep appreciation for it, and the fact it is run almost exclusively by women. ⠀ ⠀ This time, the ladies surprised me with a small selection of rare and apt models to shoot for my blog. Like the adidas ‘Queen’ – a high-top indoor training shoe for women from 1987. ⠀ ⠀ I was also selected to take part in the ellesse Design Counsel, where I put my own spin on the Tanker. I went with a deluxe summer edition of the original. ⠀ I can’t really talk much about upcoming projects yet, but I can tell you this much: I usually try to do a couple of exhibitions a year, so there’s still more to come… ⠀ ⠀ Want to know more?

After tantalising teasers last week, @hummel_hive have finally revealed their latest sneaker set: the REACH LX 6000 Archive. It’s a tasty trio that dips into their century-long chronicles for some colourway inspo, but delivers them in a fresh new package. Developed with The Foot Soldiers, the styling is an artful mix of contemporary tailoring and pure nostalgia, delivered through an unlikely prism. The design is an elevated spin-off from the world’s most advanced handball shoe, which was developed with help from elite handball talent, Alex Dujshebaev.
