PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week

MCM x Crocs Belt Bag Clog

Coming straight out of left field, MCM and Crocs kick off this week’s round-up as they join forces for a luxe version of the classic Crocs Clog. Arriving in a classically MCM brown and black colourway, the pair incorporate distinct parts of each brand’s separate identities, with Crocs’ classic Clog shape and Jibbitz being maintained, whilst MCM insert their style into the detachable monogram mini belt bag that adorns the upper. A conversation starter.


Converse x GOLF WANG Chuck 70 Low Owl

A low-riding pair of Converse is a must-pack in any summer getaway, and why not give a GOLF WANG iteration a chance. This pair of Converse x GOLF WANG Chuck 70 Low Owl sneakers feature a typically Tyler, The Creator inspired colour palette, with an aged cream sole and light blue piping adding that vintage sense, whilst a throwback autumnal leaf print adds a vibrant pop to the canvas upper. An easy cop for sneaker heads, but be quick.


Jacquemus x Nike Air Humara

Continuing the trend of luxury collaborations, ‘it’ brand Jacquemus teamed up with Nike this week for a collaborative iteration of throwback tennis shoe, the Nike Air Humara. The pair arrive in a tasteful white and cream colourway, with suede overlays, brown upper strapping, a gum sole, and classic gold Nike branding form a pair that are bound to be a hit this coming summer, especially for an everyday wear. These are set to re-release next week, so keep your eyes peeled.


Teddy Santis x New Balance M990v3

Teddy Santis refuses to miss with New Balance as the duo unveil the ‘Moonbeam’ iteration of the New Balance M990v3, which combines chunky dad shoes with a clean everyday colourway. The pair utilise a mixture of cream suede and mesh for the composition of the upper, with streaks of dark grey hitting the toe box, heel, midsole, and tongue. Additional signature New Balance branding keeps its usual place. This pair might not be reinventing the wheel, but they’ve certainly made it look better.


adidas Adilicious Superstar 'Yanway'

Closing out the line-up is the adidas Adilicious Superstar ‘Yanway’, which takes the infinite amount of designs of adidas Superstars and chucks them out the window. Being wholly its own, this pair utilise a ‘Matte Silver/Green Oxide/Te’ colourway that sees a futuristic shiny silver hit the majority of the upper and adidas stripes, with a deeply pre-aged midsole and toe box adding a stern contrast to the sneakers. Lastly, hits of green and orange arrive on the heel and laces, whilst a utilitarian metal clip hangs from the upper, adding that sense that this pair are ready for any occasion.
