PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week

Nike x Martine Rose Shox MR4

There was only ever going to be one way of kicking this week’s list off and that’s with the long-awaited release of the Nike x Martine Rose Shox MR4. Famously seen on the feet of one Kendrick Lamar at the Grammy Awards, this vibrant blue gradient iteration of the Nike x Martine Rose Shox MR4 sneaker proves to be the pick of the punch, boasting the divisive raised Shox heel, a flat black outsole, as well as black and grey stitched Nike branding and accents. As bold as you can get.


New Balance 9060

New Balance’s ability to continue producing trendy silhouettes has to be studied, with this 9060 effort proving one of the most sleek yet. The neutral ‘December Sky’ colour scheme sees roughened light grey suede adorn the majority of the mixed material upper with mesh underlays switching things up, whilst a riveted off-white midsole and tonal New Balance branding keep this pair firmly low-key (but most definitely adaptable).


UGG Tasman Cali Wave

The recent resurgence of UGG has been a sight to behold, with many of their signature silhouettes having found a new home amongst a younger audience. Following on from collaborations with the likes of Palace and Telfar, UGG continue down their path of success with the release of the Tasman Cali Wave silhouette. The adaptable pair stay in line with the popular design style of the previously released Tasman slipper, with additional features on this ‘Chestnut/Orange Soda’ iteration including an environmentally-aware ‘Eco Suede’ upper, reflective underlays, a textile collar made with 100% recycled polyester fibres, a 10mm UGGplush™ lining, as well as a foam footbed and an action-ready SugarSole™ EVA outsole. Cozy season is almost upon us and UGG have you covered.


Stone Island x New Balance FuelCell C_1 Brown

Back with another collaboration, New Balance and Stone Island look to the future with this latest collaborative sneaker, opting for a reimagined version of the FuelCell C_1 silhouette. The raised maximalist shoe takes running sneakers to a new luxury level as this brown iteration features carbo-plating, oversized “NB” branding across the toe and Stone Island insignia protruding from the back, a faded purple mixed material knit upper, as well as a magnetic closure speed lacing system, making this pair one of New Balance’s most technical yet.


adidas x Bad Bunny Campus

The colour of the moment continues to be brown as Puerto Rican superstar musician Bad Bunny teams up with adidas once again for a collaborative iteration of the Campus sneaker. The chunky pair features a brown-hued colour palette and Bad Bunny’s signature doubled tongue and heel design, with more modern overlapping cream soles and rope lacing completing the earthy pair. One of Benito’s best.
