SoleSavy Weekly Selects – Oct 5, 2020

Wrapping up yet another crazy week of releases, we’re back with our weekly roundup of sneakers selects and recommendations. This week, we asked everyone on the team to pick something for the list.

Air Max III Laser Blue

I’m a huge fan of the Air Max III and was very happy to see Nike bring back one of the best OG colorways. They nailed the materials and the shape this time around and couldn’t be more pleased with how everything came together. I expected them to push this re-run more but in turn, it makes it a very easy purchase. -DP

Nike KD13 The Easy Money Snipers

Love or hate the man he can ball.  This shoe has a lot of personality and major hippie vibes.  Phil Knight used to sell shoes at track meets from his hippie van so these remind me of that. -Justin

Nike ACG Moc 3.0

In the Year of Our Cozy 2020, I’ve been loving the ACG Moc 3.0. Rugged enough for the outdoors, comfy enough for the house, it’s been one of my go-to pairs over the last 6 months. And since the Moc 3.0 is a silhouette that has zero hype, it’s easy to find and budget friendly. Combine all of that with the fact that you can still get a fit off, and I had no choice but to show them shine. -Robert

 New Balance X-Racer

New Balance introduced this model with a collab with Bodega, which I’ve been wearing on the trails nearly every weekend over the past couple months. I’m a big fan of this model, it’s underrated, super comfortable, and durable enough for everyday wear. You can get a pair on sale now on the New Balance website! – Juan

Asics x Vivienne Westwood Gel Kayano

As one of the earliest brands to implement punk aesthetics into their fashion label, Vivienne Westwood continues to subvert expectations in 2020 as seen in their latest ASICS collab. By applying an exterior shroud to the Gel Kayano, VW transforms the beloved silhouette into a strange hybrid between art piece and experimental footwear. Is it a fishing net? A wedding veil? Either way, it’s one of the weirdest designs of 2020 that just works. -Eddie

Adidas x deadHYPE ZX 8000

Taking its inspirations from two very different sources, the Berlin audiovisual branding agency deadHYPE pull from army surplus trainers as well as the company’s goal to promote openness in the Berlin underground music scene with this exceptional new colourway of the Adidas ZX 8000. Forgoing the iconic Adidas three stripes from the shoe entirely, you’re treated to a clean pair that consists of premium leather, nubuck, and a durable canvas; all in shades of pink and purple. Although the shoe draws you in with its bright pops of colour, the attention to detail shines through with a plush leather sockliner and surplus-inspired size tag on the inside of the tongue. While one of the most low-key releases in the “A to ZX” series, this pair is also one of the best. – Braeden

Nike Blazer Mid ’77 VNTG Sail

My affinity for white/sail sneakers doesn’t falter in the colder months, and the blazer is just one of those sneakers that are so easy to style. While the black swoosh blazer is always going to be a classic, I had to pick up the sail pair when Nike discounted them further. They nailed the remake of the blazer so much so that I sold my Off-White pair and elected to go with the more subtle GRs. -Dean

Hoka One One Goretex Challenger Low

As much as I’ve enjoyed the shift into chunky sneakers, I’ll always have appreciation for more technical sneakers. The Challenger Low from Hoka achieves both those things. To top it all off, the upper is Goretex to make it even more functional. Hoka’s a bit slept on and I love what they’re doing. -Hearsh
