Men Nike Shoes will be a whole new chapter for Russell Westbrook. In honor of this, the athlete made a major change to his signature "Why Not" shoe, removing the "zero" that usually accompanies each iteration. While the more affordable Westbrook One Take 3 keeps its name, its silhouette essentially kicks off the new year with a new grey slate. Unlike previous styles, this pair has even an ounce less color. Instead, neutrals complete the look, with nearly everything from the upper to the heel dyed black. However, the embroidered Westbrook and Trapeze branding contrasts in their cream thread, which complements the sole and extra logo on the forefoot. In between, a shade of grey rounds out the color scheme, effectively separating the two opposing hues.
The New Balance XC-72 colorway, which debuted with the help of "Casablanca," was relatively slow. However, its long teased "Moonlight" style 2021Sneakers will hit MIT's web store on January 20. Inspired by sportswear, New Balance has launched a sleek low-top sneaker with a much bolder aesthetic than the dad-related sneakers for which the brand is known. A premium mix of suede, breathable mesh, and rich leather make up the bulk of this shoe, and a ridged heel clip emerges around the heel for structural support. While the XC-72's upper is an eye-catcher on its own, it's undoubtedly overshadowed by a "split" outsole that includes a variety of tread patterns borrowed from performance in the '70s and '80s . Beige and black come together to create a perfect shoe for year-round wear, although this shoe will likely dominate spring and summer.
Sandy Liang has such a personal connection to New York that she often guides the city through every design. This is her third collection with Vans, New Jordan and the designer thought it would be appropriate to showcase each collection just a few blocks from her Lower East Side storefront. Together, the two created a love letter to "grandma fashion, sporty women, nostalgia, and humor," all built on top of the footwear brand's many classics. Both the standard and Platform 2.0 versions of the Sk8-Hi display a childlike femininity, either with lace skirts on the collar or floral embroidery on the canvas. The latter theme appears elsewhere as well, imparting a youthful, playful feel to both the solid and patterned shoes. In contrast, Authentic, which uses a neutral lathe, opted for doodles found in elementary school notebooks, brightly adorned with smiling butterflies. As for the semi-convertible, the pair leaned against lush green Sherpas with subtle flower-shaped eye rings.
