Bottega Veneta Orbit

Kicking things off in style are Bottega Veneta, with their reign of supremacy set to extend well into 2024 as they put forward various takes on the Orbit sneaker. The runner-style pair have already make their mark in fashion of late, being seen on a host of high-profile celebrities, but they’re set to truly come into their own in the coming months. Extending their selection of colourways, this Lunar New Year ‘Sherbert/Silver’ entry proves to be the leading light, boasting a yellow tint all across the graphic upper as well as futuristic hits of silver TPU, whilst a lightweight technical mesh, a rubber outsole, and Bottega Veneta midfoot branding complete the pair.


ESENES Eyeball Mule

If you’ll pardon the pun, I think we’ve all had our eye on this pair the past few weeks. The ESENES Eyeball Mule has done the rounds on social media, with the viral pair promptly receiving a release as the slip-on standout boasts multicoloured marble-like eyeballs spread across the entirety of the black faux-fur upper, whilst a black outsole keeps all of the attention on those peering eyes.


New Balance 9060

A pair still very much ready for the dark and dingy weather ahead are the New Balance 9060 NRH in the ‘Dark Royal’ colourway, utilising an array of winter-ready blues to keep you going until SS24′. The stomping shape rocks a black midsole unit and a shined blue colour scheme across the upper, with the darkened silver and black mesh underlays keeping things simple, yet effective.



Underlining the runner as the silhouette of 2024, ASICS are putting their best foot forward as per usual as they unveil the GEL-1130 in a neutral ‘White/Black’ colourway. While by no means reinventing the wheel, what this pair does do is act as an affordable runner for whatever your day entails, and it does so in style.


UGG Tasman Shroud Zip

For those of you fashion week folk out there, this pair may be a good entry into your statement-making wardrobe. UGG’s Tasman Shroud Zip arrives in a triple black colourway and puts a bold utilitarian style alongside comfortability, with the zipped pair utilising a water-resistant coated canvas layer, an elastic lace and toggle, a renewable outsole, a textile upper, as well as a classic 17mm UGGplush™ lining and simplistic UGG insole branding.
