Taking into account the vast popularity of the adidas Samba right now, Kith does everything right as this pair feature neutral tones of white and grey across the mixed leather and suede composition, with a dark brown outsole and a yellow heel hit adding an earthy feel to this road-ready pair. Easy to wear, not so easy to cop.


Satisfy x Crocs Classic Clog

Taking things in an airy direction, this easy-to-wear pair from Satisfy and Crocs mixes utility with style as the Classic Clog continues to rule the slip-on roost. The outdoor wear brand, who are most notably known for their workout and running gear, have made steps in a fashion direction as they recently debuted a collaboration with Oakley, continuing their fine run of form with Crocs as this ‘Bone’ Classic Clog takes the spotlight. Staying true to the design codes of the silhouette, the pair utilise the traditional shape of the Crocs Classic Clog along the perforated toe box area, with Satisfy’s futuristic design ethos arriving in the form of a neoprene construction that places itself along the midfoot and rear collar areas. Additional functional features include nylon pulls cords and a ripstop nylon pouch. Ready for anything (and everything).


DLTR x New Balance 'Lovers Only' 2002R

Being one of the best New Balance releases of recent memory, this DLTR x New Balance ‘Lovers Only’ 2002R takes the cake as this week’s best pair. Despite not reinventing the metaphorical wheel, this pair does the simple things right as the iconic 2002R silhouette boasts a tasteful grey and black mixed suede and mesh upper, with divided red and blue New Balance “N” insignia and cream and grey midsoles adding a real attention to detail with this pair. With this being the final instalment in the DLTR x New Balance franchise, it’s apt that the two ended things like this. NB do it again.
