PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week

New Balance 610

Kickstarting the emergence of the 610 silhouette, New Balance have pushed the sneaker even further with a plethora of recent releases, including the soon-to-release Aminè iteration. For this earth-toned version, the sporty 610 sneaker features a beige action-ready mesh composition working alongside soft ‘Olive Green’ suede overlays, with hits of darkened grey arriving on the speckled midsole as well as the signature New Balance “N” midfoot branding. Hit the trails or the streets, this pair are ready for anything.


End x Salomon XT-6

Keeping firmly on track – if you’ll pardon the pun – this hiking must-have arrives in the form of the collaborative End x Salomon XT-6, debuting in a much-anticipated ‘Dark Truffle’ colourway. The Fall-ready pair make sure to hit all the right notes as a stark dark brown underlay layers perfectly with a lighter shade of truffle brown, with typical Salomon emblems, lace features, and branding making their usual mark. If you’re still on the Salomon wave, this is a must cop pair.


New Balance WRPD Runner

Continuing a busy week for New Balance, the latest addition to their long range of signature silhouettes increases as the WRPD Runner makes its bold entrance. The futuristic sneaker moves away from the recently-popularised vintage-style trends as a beige curved midsole blends into the roughened sand-coloured suede upper, whilst jet black “N” branding contrasts against a crisp white mesh underlay material. Something fresh.


Vans Knu Skool

Back for a second week in a row, skating legends Vans have returned with their chunky Knu Skool silhouette, providing a dreamy ‘Lilac’ colourway for all those diehard Vans fans out there. Sticking to the script, the pair feature the familiar favourite shaggy suede across the mixed light and dark purple upper, with a robust skate-ready tongue and fattened laces being utilised alongside a chunky midsole as well as a rear pull tab for additional comfortability.


Ganni x New Balance 1906R

Closing out this week with a hat-trick, New Balance have tapped Ganni for a vibrant version of their sporty 1906R sneaker, ending a long wait for sneaker heads worldwide. The pair has long been teased and was most recently spotted at Ganni’s runway show, with a release now upon us. Getting into the sneaker itself, a striking yellow adorns the entirety of the mesh upper and midsole unit as a blended silver and yellow “N” follows suit alongside tonal rear heel pull tabs, whilst black highlights break up the spongy design, being placed on the sock lining, midfoot, and laces. A touch of luxury.
