Jeff Staple is certainly no stranger when it comes to coveted collaborations, and the atmos x STAPLE x PUMA Suede "White" is certainly one of them. A rare three-way partnership between the Tokyo-based retailer, the Chinese-American style icon, and the German sportswear giant, it boasts a luxurious tumbled leather and buttery suede construction that's as premium as it gets. Pigeon and crow motifs are finely embroidered across the heels, and all of this sits on top of a blacked out midsole. Of course, it wouldn't be a special project without a limited edition shoebox that's made for all the collectors out there.
Paying homage to the Canadian delicacy, the Nike Dunk Low "Montreal Bagel" is inspired by the snack food staple that the Canadian city is known for. Crafted from a full leather construction, the outer panels are decorated with a sesame seed finish while a striking blue Swoosh shoots through the lateral and medial sidewalls. Underfoot, the midsole has been left all-white, and this is lined with a gum rubber outsole that's a nod to the sweet honey dip that the world-famous bagels are usually accompanied with. Who's feeling hungry, eh?
New Balance is serving up a dish of beef and broccoli this season with the aptly-named New Balance 9060 "Beef & Broccoli." One of the latest colorways to hit the retro-futuristic silhouette, it works on top of a blacked out mesh base and is covered in brown suede and green leather throughout. Underfoot, you'll find a aggressively-sculpted foam midsole that's as comfortable as it gets, and of course, you can't talk about this modern model without mentioning the see-through heel counter that wraps around the back of the shoe.
If you're been searching for a sneaker that's sure to be a future icon, the Air Jordan 1 High OG "Reverse Laney" just might be what you've been looking for all this time. Inspired by the yellow and blue color palette of Laney High School in Wilmington, NC, where Michael Jordan played high school basketball, it bears a striking resemblance to the 2013 pair, but with the colorblocking completely reversed. His Airness' legendary winged basketball is finely debossed across the collar flaps, and a Swoosh shoots across the sidewalls for that unmistakable Nike look and feel
And last but not least, we have the Nike Dunk High "Psychic Purple." One of the latest colorways to hit the American sportswear company's ever-popular '80s basketball shoe, we can already tell that these will be extremely popular, so secure your size right now while you still can. Offered in a full leather construction, purple and black panels clash for a look that's sure to turn heads.
