PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week


The cost-effective Bottega Veneta ‘Orbit’ is here as Instagram page turned clothing brand HIDDEN join forces alongside ASICS for a long-awaited GEL-NYC release. Utilising an adaptable white, silver, and signature green colour scheme, this sleek pair can do no wrong as an on-trend ‘digi-print’ pixelises the ASICS midfoot branding and works seamlessly alongside a subtle HIDDEN tongue stamp, whilst a mesh composition and overlapping silver add some modern order.


Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 1000

Joe Freshgoods x New Balance is always a moment when it comes back around, and this might just be the duo’s most important drop yet. Reintroducing the NB 1000 silhouette, this ‘Black Ice’ iteration brings in a one-of-one iridescent glow, with a gum outsole adding some extra underfoot stability. Get them before they skyrocket.


BSTN x Real Madrid x adidas Rivalry 86 Low

It’s firmly “Hala Madrid” this week as retailer BSTN link arms with Europe’s football royalty club Real Madrid for a sleek take on the adidas Rivalry 86 Low. Coming adorned with multiple nods to the Champions League dominators, this new pair bring in a white-on-white colour scheme that rivals any of its tonal competitors for the best all-white shoe crown, whilst BSTN’s smooth midfoot glitter logo adds a welcomed difference to a typical pair of adidas Rivalry 86 Lows. Lastly, colour-changing UV-reactive accents across the pair instil an unmatched attention-to-detail, giving Madristas a dose of one of their favoured house colours; purple.


Simone Rocha x Crocs Quick Trail Clogs

Taking things left of centre, Simone Rocha always know how to cater to a fashion-forward crowd as they link back up with Crocs for a pair of pearlised Quick Trail Clogs. The essential Crocs silhouette features an all-black colour scheme along with subtle branded doses, a mesh angle area and socklining, in addition to a robust sole unit. The pair’s metaphorical cake-topping cherry is the stunning selection of floral silver jewels and pearls that line themselves up along the frontal, midfoot, and heel areas.


Sebago Dan Loafers

By no means reinventing the wheel, the Sebago Dan loafer does all the basics right and gets you firmly in your classic bag for the upcoming SS24′ season. The signature low-lying pair boast a rich black leather here as exaggerated tonal stitching adds a thickness to this essential rotational effort, whilst an unlined upper, leather sock lining, and waterproof and durable natural leather soles moulded with a rubber heel complete the look. Dress this pair up or down, it’s your choice.
