PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week

Supreme x Timberland 6 Inch Premium Waterproof Boot

An age-old collaboration kicks thing off this week as Supreme x Timberland returns, putting forward three striking iterations of the latter’s signature 6-Inch Boot. The iconic silhouette arrives in three pink, wheat, and black colourways for winter 2023, with the first pink iteration proving to be the pick of the bunch. The high-top pair don’t shake things up too much, utilising an array of co-branded iconography on the heel and hang tag, an eye-catching diamond plate patterning across the upper, as well as typical yellow laces and a robust midsole unit. It’s Timberland’s time to shine.


Off-White x Nike Air Terra Forma

The latest entry into the ongoing Off-White x Nike collection is the robust Air Terra Forma silhouette, which boasts a creeping mid-top shape that resembles the idea of a hiking boot, but made “fashion”. Off-White’s signature design touch arrives through their typical stitched Nike Swoosh, quarter lettering, and a lime green zip-tie tag, with the ‘Archaeo Brown’ pair utilising a tie-dye ankle guard, a green and brown suede upper, a multicoloured midsole unit, as well as an edgy spiked outsole.


New Balance WRPD Runner

Putting forward another earth-toned standout in a ‘Dark Mushroom’ style are New Balance, continuing with the push of their new WRPD Runner silhouette. The futuristic shape dons a sleek split midsole unit that flows throughout the shoe, with roughened brown suede layering over a black mesh underlay as a simple dose of New Balance insignia take to the midfoot. A solid effort.


DUKE + DEXTER Winston Maple Mule

Whilst not strictly a sneaker, the blurred lines of modern footwear definitely allow entry to DUKE + DEXTER’s suave Winston Maple Mule. The low-riding slip-on pair don’t just put comfort at the top of the agenda, but style also, as a rich maple suede makes its way across the entirety of the smoothened upper, with other standout features including a premium Italian leather lining, a a cork footbed and EVA outsole, as well as a striking vintage-style custom buckle. A pair for every occasion.


1017 ALYX 9SM x Nike Air Force 1 Low

You can’t get more classic than a Nike Air Force 1, right? Sharing that same sentiment is Matthew M. Williams and 1017 ALYX 9SM, who have stepped forward with a simple take on the iconic Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘White’. Keeping things simple, the pair boasts a premium white leather across the upper in addition to the expected perforated toe box, white rubber midsole, and signature Nike Swoosh, with 1017’s design stylings coming to the table through subtle heel lettering and engraved silver metallic lace locks.
