PAUSE Picks: Top Sneaker Releases of the Week


There’s nothing like some baby blue to get the summer started, and this pair of ASICS GT-2160 sneakers are just the ticket. The classic mesh running sneaker keep you comfortable and fly all at once, opting for a classic silver and white base with a striking dose of baby blue running through its core midfoot and midsole areas. Keep going on those long summer days, ASICS have got your back.


Nike Field General 82

Keeping colour at the top of the agenda, if you’re looking for something more fiery then the Nike Field General 82 “Orange Blaze” is just the pair for you. It’s signature, old-school silhouette speaks for itself as one of Nike’s most prestigious and historical shapes, with this newly-released pair keeping colours divided as a white leather upper and black gum midsole contrast with bright orange accents on the main Nike Swoosh, heel, and tongue. Nike have got one.


Diemme Pantelleria Neon Mesh

Diemme take inspiration from classic 90s aqua-socks for this latest standout, debuting a firmly summer-ready entry in the form of the Pantelleria “Neon Mesh.” Designed with the warmer weather in mind, this predominantly mesh pair switch things up from the atypical leather and suede entries we see so often in the modern sneaker world, providing comfortability, breathability, and ultimately: style. Key standout features include practical pull tabs, archival Diemme branding in the form of a 90s fish-like figure logo, suede leather detailing, as well as a light yet sturdy Vibram sole that inserts a reliably comfortable underfoot feeling. Despite the temptation to take a dip in this pair, refrain from taking your Diemme Pantellerias in with you… they’re far too pretty.


New Balance 1906R Grey Day

New Balance return with their yearly “Grey Day” as they champion the wholly stripped-back colour with a signature release, putting forward the 1906R Grey Day “Moonrock.” Doing exactly what you would expect it to, this all grey pair tone it all the down with a lightened shade across all of its features, excluding the white midsole unit. If you’re one for blending in, look no further than the latest 1906R.


Futura x Nike SB Dunk Low Pro

A release to remember for any true sneaker head, with this Futura x Nike SB Dunk Low Pro marking the end of one of the industry’s longest-running sagas. Originally seen in two never released pairs of Nike Dunk Low ‘Virgil Abloh™ x FuturaLaboratories, this Nike x Futura link-up was thought to be a duo of the past, but an official public drop has put that narrative to bed. This newly-released iteration of Nike’s SB Dunk Low follows on from the aforementioned rarities, with this pair heading back to 00s stylings and tie-dye culture for a one-of-one look that sees the artist’s signature graphics placed on a classic canvas upper, being utilised alongside striking blue two-toned pastel laces and a matching translucent sole. Blue is clearly the colour this summer.
