PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week

adidas x Balenciaga Triple S

There was only ever going to be one way of kicking off this week’s line-up, and that’s with the recently released adidas x Balenciaga Triple S sneaker in ‘White’. After making a splash at the New York City runway show, Balenciaga have put the adidas Triple S sneaker forward for pre-order, with this pair arriving in a solid white, black, and grey colourway. The pair adorns signature Balenciaga and adidas branding on the midfoot, upper, and heel, whilst also keeping the Triple S’ typical chunky shape.


Jaden Smith x New Balance Vision Racer

Making a change from the 550s, a new inclusion from New Balance sees them tap Jaden Smith once again for a new iteration of the Vision Racer silhouette. This pair go contrast crazy as the heavily chunky silhouette utilises black for the majority of the upper and its overlays, with this being contrasted with a typically Jaden Smith pink and purple gradient design. New Balance insignia also arrives in pink on the midfoot, whilst ‘Vision Racer’ text sits just under it.


Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 1

Continuing the theme of musician collaborations, Travis Scott has emerged for his first collaboration with Nike since the Astroworld disaster, returning with a “Saturn Gold” version of the Nike Air Max 1 sneaker. A netted base lines the toe box and midfoot, with soft, buttery suede adorning the sneaker’s overlays, whilst multicoloured rope laces and fabric fasteners complete the look. Providing a dose of light yellow for the summer, Travis Scott proves he is well and truly back.


Vans Vault x Imran Potato UA KNU-SKOOL VR3 LX

Adding his left-of-centre design style to the mix is Imran Potato, who has joined forces with Vans Vault for a garish leopard-inspired colourway of the UA KNU-SKOOL VR3 LX silhouette. The low-top sneaker features all-over yellow leopard-print, flat leopard-print laces, as well as a chunky Vans side stripe and tongue. A simple white midsole completes the look, with this pair bound to be a popular pair for skaters looking to mix it up this summer.


Off-White Out of Office Sneakers

Doing exactly what they say on the tin, Off-White’s ‘Out of Office’ sneakers are the perfect pair for when you want to let your hair down, with this casual pair being a pair you can match with almost anything. This leather pair rock an all-white upper with green accents on the sock lining and Off-White lettering that adorns the midfoot, with the brand’s signature zip tie also making an appearance.
