In 1987, the first visible air shoe was created with the iconic Nike Air Max, and 30 years later Nike continues this storied history with the OG Air Max 1 Pinnacle. The classic design from ’87 is still present, as is the visible air in the heel that sneaker heads have loved throughout the years. Available in premium leather and a very smooth black-and-beige colorway, these impressive kicks are perfect for endless, everyday comfort.

Pharrell Williams is both a grammy-winning artist and a shoe design buff, collaborating with Adidas to create the new Tennis Hu Primeknit Shoes. These fresh sneaks feature a Stan Smith-inspired white and green colorway and innovative Primeknit upper which provides a very flexible fit for any size. Williams reimagined this Adidas Original to produce a shoe that’s ideal for both the summer party scene and everyday wear. Combine his styling with the ultra supportive feel and you have a winner that’s sure to be a hot seller when it hits the market May 6th.

The SB Bruin Vapor is another modernized take on the Nike Air Max. With the superior cushioning of Max Air and an inner sleeve for a sock like fit you’re getting peak comfort. Add in the sleek cool grey colorway with the classic SB Air Max design and you have one appealing pair of sneakers.
Adidas has partnered with the trendy NYC street-gear retailer Kith to release the adiZero Prime Boost tomorrow. The adiZero is known for its strong history supporting marathon winners, and the dynamic look of Primeknit paired with the signature comfort of Boost midsole and its maximum energy return has always been a successful duo for Adidas. The $200 price tag might turn some heads, but it’s well worth it for such an impressive, versatile shoe. Throw in a slip-on woven upper for great breathability and you have one of the premiere sneakers for the summer months.

The FILA X returns to stores in a brand new colorway, inspired by the Yucatan coastline of Mexico, after partnering with Akomplice Clothing. The sandy cover of suede throughout these kicks is an homage to the famous Mexican beaches, while a bluish shade of purple represents the ocean coral on the outsole, and a touch of light green on the insole and tongue represents the Caribbean Sea. That description might sound a little out there for some, but there’s no doubting their casual appearance and comfortable fit that could work in any setting.
