STRANGER THINGS

Yet an­other ex­clu­sive item to com­mem­o­rate the re­cently con­cluded Olympics, these ’80s-in­spired “From Seoul to Rio” sneak­ers are the brain­child of Ron­nie Fieg and Di­adora. Spe­cially hand­crafted in Italy, the col­or­ful kicks will only have 500 pairs in re­tail.

BACK TO BLACK

The de­signs of Julius founder Tat­suo Horikawa is founded on black for its “deep spir­i­tual mean­ing” in Ja­panese reli­gion. For the 2016 F/W col­lec­tion of Julius, Horikawa cre­ates his first line of high-top sneak­ers. A col­li­sion of mesh, suede, and leather, the sneak­ers give off a sporty fu­tur­is­tic vibe.

SHIFT­ING SHADES

The white ten­nis shoe is about to get a run for its money, with Bodega team­ing up with Ree­bok for the for­mer’s 10th an­niver­sary. Made with lux­u­ri­ous, deep blue suede, the new and im­proved NPC UK shoe also fea­tures vi­o­let ac­cents and a gum rub­ber sole.

GOD’S SPEED

Adi­das has re­leased the clos­est thing to the magic san­dals of Her­mes, mes­sen­ger of the gods. En­gi­neered with a com­plex 3D struc­ture, the shoes are cur­rently avail­able only to Olympic medal­ists, the laces pat­terned in ac­cor­dance with the color of their re­spec­tive medals.

NAT­U­RAL SOLE

Visvim el­e­vates the sneaker game by re­vis­it­ing nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als in their 2016 F/W col­lec­tion. Visvim uti­lizes raf­fia wo­ven on Vi­bram soles. Each pair is en­tirely hand­wo­ven and nat­u­rally dyed in light beige, dark brown, and deep navy.
