According to fashionbeans.com these are the best trainers of 2017 so far… Best you visit our specialist sneaker stores to scout your pair, before it’s a done deal…
NIKE AIR MAX 97 OG ‘SILVER BULLET’
The shoe for Instagram influencers this year, the reissued Air Max 97 OG takes cues from Japan’s Bullet Train and was an instant hit, selling out in a matter of hours. Created by famed sneaker designer Christian Tresser and originally released for just a year, the iconic model is bullet by name, bullet by nature.
The Nike Sportswear #AirMax 97 OG QS ‘Silver Bullet’ dropped in-store at selected Sportscene stores (Canal Walk was one of them) 2 months ago… but you may be in luck… check in store for these gems.
ADIDAS ORIGINALS GAZELLE
In the good old days of soccer everyone wore very plain, timeless boots. The recently unveiled ‘premium’ Adidas Gazelle is basically an everyday version of that. The drop comes in two colours – black or white – and you’re in luck… Sportscene has them!
VANS X OUR LEGACY OLD SKOOL
Our Legacy founder Jockum Hallin took inspiration from his formative years in Sweden’s skateboard and hardcore punk subcultures for the brand’s tie-up with Cali legends Vans. The low-key spice-up of the ever-popular Old Skool saw the trainer gain luxe materials like a military-grade nylon upper alongside the usual suede inserts, Swedish vegetable-tanned leather and patented Jazz Stripe. Oooh you need these now. Aaaaaand go! Canal Walk Sportscene or Vans Concept Store is your best bet.
NIKE AIR MORE UPTEMPO ‘WHITE ON WHITE’
From its graffiti-inspired lettering to its bold, muscular lines, the Air More Uptempo captures the spirit of the ’90s like no other sneaker. Rocked on the court by some of the era’s great talents, the Uptempo found its ultimate legacy as a “statement” shoe on the streets. This limited-edition colourway amplifies the look with a super-clean white-on-white colourway that will have them reaching for their sunglasses. These dropped at the Canal Walk Nike Concept store at the end of May this year… pop in to see if any remain.
CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR ’70 WOVEN HIGH
To reimagine a shoe to be made of woven materials might not sound all that radical, but when you’re messing with one of the most iconic and popular trainers of all time, that takes serious belief. And the tactile take on the original Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 has been a hit with consumers and critics.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit Collection launched in April at Converse stores and selected retailers…. So you might still be in luck.
