PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week

By September 8, 2023Fashion News

Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Sheed”

Being easily one of the best Off-White x Nike collaborations of recent memory, the Air Force 1 Mid “Sheed” reminds sneaker heads exactly why this link-up still remains as one of fashion’s best dynamic duos. This glossy pair feature all of what you’d expect from an Off-White collaboration, keeping to their signature design stamps whilst spiked outsoles and nods to iconic NBA baller Rasheed Wallace give this newly-released pair a heavy dose of personality.


New Balance 990v6

Bringing a pale yellow into a colour palette is a bold choice, but New Balance’s latest take on the 990v6 does so tastefully. The vintage-styled pair make sure to keep all of the parts of NB that we sneaker heads love, with a mixed yellow suede and mesh composition sitting comfortably alongside a cushioned white and grey midsole as well as hits of green on the signature New Balance branding. A pair for every occasion.


ASICS Gel-Kayano 14

ASICS’ ‘Bright Lime’ take on the instant-classic Gel-Kayano 14 silhouette reminds us of Balenciaga in its sporty heyday – without the cost. Coming in at a reasonable £155, the popping silhouette gives any self-respecting shoe rotation a dash of much-needed colour, with futuristic glossy silver overlays contrasting with the eye-catching lime green mesh base layer and a comfort-centric cushion midsole. Easy to style, easy to cop.



Being one of the most popular examples of ongoing collaboration, Converse and Rick Owens’ sub-label, DRKSHD, are stepping into fashion month with a new everyday pair. The low-lying DBL DRKSTAR reflects the classic Chuck 70 Low outline and adds some height, doubling-up the sole whilst maintaining the elongated tongue that has become so synonymous with this partnership. Additional features include an off-white canvas material on the upper as well as a hardened top cap. Luxury meets streetwear.


Nike TN Air Max Plus

With the return of the Air Max TN being well and truly upon us, what better time than now to introduce one of the silhouette’s latest releases, with this ‘Light Photography’ iteration proving to be one of Nike’s more left-of-centre designs of recent times. The striking orange and red light graphics across the gradient-style upper makes this a pair for every once in a while as opposed to an every day rotation shoe, but we’re not complaining. Additionally, the signature Air Max bubble stays firmly placed in the midsole, whilst hits of black adorn the reduced in size Nike midfoot Swoosh as well as heel and toe accents.
