PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week

Supreme x Nike Courtposite

Supreme x Nike are back yet again for FW23′. A surprise? No. However, any self-respecting sneaker head would be lying if they said they weren’t interested in anything Supreme x Nike has to offer. Channeling some serious Prada America Cup vibes, this Courtposite release is one of the boldest choices of late by Supreme x Nike, with this standout ‘Metallic Gold’ colourway leading the line as hits of co-branded accents arrive through embossed “Supreme” lettering on the midfoot, a Supreme box logo on the tongue, as well as multiple Nike mini Swooshes, whilst a black mudguard completes the pair.


Carhartt WIP x New Balance 990v6

New Balance and Carhartt WIP was never going to fail, was it? Putting their best foot forward, New Balance have come through with their best collaboration of recent times as Carhartt WIP’s utilitarian workwear stylings and colour palettes align perfectly with the rough-and-ready 990v6 silhouette. The robust pair features various overlapping shades of brown and tan across the mixed material upper, with a grey mesh breaking up the monotony. The dose of Carhartt WIP branding makes it’s way onto the tongue, while a multicoloured cushioned Abzorb midsole keeps that New Balance comfort in check.


Song For The Mute x adidas Campus 80s

Putting another big-hitter firmly into the mix, Australian brand Song for the Mute and adidas have reconvened for one of their most stellar projects yet as the growingly-popular Campus 80s gets its well deserved makeover. Bringing in an almost comic-book contrast style design, the Song For The Mute x adidas Campus 80s ‘Clear Brown’ utilises a beige canvas construction adorned with well executed frayed edges, whilst black and orange Three Stripes take to the lateral sides and a gum outsole adds a nice dose of texture.


New Balance WRPD Runner

New Balance’s relatively new futuristic silhouette gets an update for FW23′ as the WRPD Runner arrives in a fashion week-ready ‘Marine Blue’ colourway. The pair make sure to let the chunky silhouette do most of the talking as neutral shades of black, blue and dark and light grey coordinate on the mixed material upper, whilst hidden New Balance “N” branding puts even more emphasis on the wavy shaping.


Nike TN Air Max Plus 3

The Nike TN makes yet another weekly round-up as the Air Max Plus 3 ‘Black/Wolf Grey’ release receives the deserved attention. Bringing in neutral grey accents TN Air Max Plus 3, this welcome change adds a striking division between the lighter upper and the rest of the darkened silhouette, with Nike once again utilising a gradient design for the upper mesh material. A UK classic.
