The Drop List: January
This month we welcomed collaborations with UNDERCOVER and Tyler, The Creator, some designer classics and the arrival of a sneaker from a galaxy far, far away…
Nike X UNDERCOVER Air Max 720 Sneakers
First unveiled at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, UNDERCOVER’s latest release with Nike is one of the more understated iterations from pair’s ongoing collaboration. The Nike X UNDERCOVER Air Max 720 features a predominantly black colourway with an engineered mesh upper, white and grey coated detailing and a speckled paint design, reminiscent of the Air Jordan cement style. Jun Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER branding is present throughout, with “WE MAKE NOISE NOT CLOTHES” printed across the chunky bubble midsole.
Saint Laurent Venice Slip On Sneakers
Taking inspiration from Californian skater style, Saint Laurent’s Venice Slip On sneaker is here to bring easy LA cool to your wardrobe. Embracing the easy-to-wear style in two variations of camo and white against a gum vulcanised sole, the Venice is set to kickflip straight into our new season wardrobe.
AGE Carbon High Top Sneakers
New to Browns this season, Korean brand AGE takes classic sneaker silhouettes and updates the aesthetic with the use of unique and innovative materials. The AGE Carbon High Top Sneakers are a minimalist alternative to the classic canvas sneaker boot, using a cream upper with contrasting red stitch and a molded vulcanised sole unit for added durability.
adidas Ultraboost 19 Star Wars ‘Millenium Falcon’ Sneakers
Inspired by the latest Star Wars film, the adidas Ultraboost 19 ‘Millennium Falcon’ adopts the colour scheme of its namesake with mixed shades of steel grey. A collectible piece for Star Wars fans, it features a Primeknit upper with the Millennium Falcon illustration printed on the BOOST sole. Bringing a touch of ‘lightsaber’ energy to the sneaker, the heel unit features a fluro blue accent for channeling your inner Jedi.
Converse X Golf Le FLEUR* Gianno Sneakers
First collaborating in 2017, Converse and Tyler, The Creator’s GOLF Le FLEUR* collection has explored a variety of classic Converse silhouettes in a mix of colours and unique textures. The latest iteration from the partnership is a new sneaker that entirely encompasses Tyler’s creative style. The new Gianno takes its influence from a mix of ‘90s fashion, BMX biking and trail hiking. It features a nylon, suede and leather upper with a non-skid lugged outsole for a touch of ruggedness.
New Balance MS997 Sneakers
A legendary New Balance silhouette with heritage influences, the MS997 fulfills the brand’s tagline: “Worn by supermodels in London and dads in Ohio.” After all, this is a sneaker style beloved by all. Using a ‘90s-influenced colour palette, the latest iteration mixes beige, turquoise and purple against a speckled black midsole unit. The New Balance MS997 also uses ENCAP and ABZORB technology to provide supportive cushioning and maximum durability, embracing fashion and function to the full.
adidas Rivalry Low ‘Jade’ Sneakers
Marking Asia’s Singles Day holiday in November, the adidas Rivalry Low was released in a limited edition ‘Jade’ colourway. A classic ‘80s basketball silhouette, it features a marbled suede upper in a mix of pastel green shades and Chinese characters printed on the tongue in gold and is finished with a clear gum sole unit.
Fendi Logo Tape Leather Sneakers
Sporting a classic tennis silhouette, the Fendi Logo Tape Sneakers keep things subtle with their monogrammed homage to the brand. Stripped back with clean white leather uppers and contrast top stitching, this minimal sneaker adds a luxury touch with the embroidered ‘Double F’ logo on the side.
Alexander McQueen Oversized Runner Sneakers
The new Alexander McQueen Runner style takes inspiration from performance running sneakers, using a more streamlined aesthetic but maintaining the brand’s signature chunky sole unit. Adding more detail accents than the classic McQueen style, the Oversized Runner uses a mix of neoprene and leather with a higher padded heel and a graduated flatform sole.
Eytys Laser Low Top Sneakers
Well known for their platform soled sneakers, cult Swedish brand Eytys take their inspiration from ‘90s grunge fashion, swiftly gaining popularity with their Laser, Angel and new Halo models. The more understated of the three, the Eytys Laser has a minimal runner upper and a chunky lightweight sole with an all-over ‘Ocean Camo’ print.
