PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week

Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid

Kicking off this week’s line-up is Off-White and Nike, who have joined forces once again for a collaborative iteration of the Air Force 1 Mid silhouette. Arriving in a white colourway, this Virgil Abloh designed pair feature a white knit-style synthetic upper, a utilitarian style ankle strap, signature Off-White text and detailing, extra overlapping gyre laces, as well as blue, pink, and green running spikes on the sole. This is certainly a pair that makes a statement.



A slightly left-of-centre choice for this week is the MX ONSHORE, which puts forward a breathable, lightweight option for those summer days where the heat gets a little too much. Providing flexibility, comfortability, and a utilitarian approach is the MX ONSHORE, which offers a heavy-duty outsole, three adjustable straps, as well as a summery orange, black, and tan colour scheme. This is a must cop for those long summer adventures.


Supreme x Nike Shox Ride 2

Nike’s big week continues as they put forward yet another stellar release, teaming up with Supreme for several iterations of the Shox Ride 2 silhouette. The standout from the range sees the Nike Shox Ride 2 receive a “Olive/Volt” makeover, with this pair boasting a mesh and leather upper, DURAPLUSH tongue and heel linings, classic rubber logo panels, as well as a host of Nike and Supreme branding on the midfoot, toe box, and Shox pillars.


Teddy Santis x New Balance 990v3

New Balance and Teddy Santis continue their flourishing relationship as the pair drop a neutral iteration of the New Balance 990v3 sneaker, which arrives with a grey hairy suede and a dark tan mesh upper. Additional features include ENCAP midsole cushioning, a colourway inspired by the original Grey 996, a premium synthetic suede sockliner, as well as a partly aged midsole and customary New Balance insignia on the midfoot, heel, and tongue.


Rowing Blazers x K-Swiss SI-18 Premier

Arguably being this week’s standout is the Rowing Blazers x K-Swiss SI-18 Premier tennis shoe, which could not be more perfect for pretty much every summer outfit you can think of. The chunky 90s-style silhouette comes in a predominantly white colourway and borrows from Rowing Blazers’ creative director Jack Carlson’s personal collection of vintage K-Swiss apparel. The pair feature flashes of pink, blue, teal, and orange on the upper, heel, and most consistently on the sole, with the pair also boasting original PU midsole construction, a lightweight rubber outsole, signature D-R Cinch lacing system, and premium leather upper.
