Welcome to SNX DLX, your weekly roundup of the week’s best sneaker releases. This time around we have another jam-packed SNX, the big brands are no longer playing and we are now dealing with more dope sneakers than we know what to do with. That’s never a bad thing – unless you ask your wallet – especially when the weather starts to warm up.
Depending on where you are in the country, you can now comfortably ditch those bulky winter trainers and layered cuts for something a little less constricting – which means it’s time to refresh your wardrobe. dress. This week makes that easy to do, with new Jordan colorways, a few new silhouettes, a major Yeezy launch, and a psychedelic Air Max 90.
Let’s dive into this week’s best sneaker drops.
Nike Air Max 90 SE
As much as we love the ambition of the Air Max Terrascape, it’s hard to beat the classic, and the Air Max 90 is that. This iteration of the sneaker features a classic waffle sole, stitched overlays and a mixed upper of Psychedelic Hairy Suede, Fine Forest Teal Suede and Canvas with a Roma Green and Sail Orange colourway. It’s a bit 70s, a bit 90s, lots of fun.
The Nike Air Max 90 SE is available now for a retail price of $153. 57. Get a pair exclusively at Hanon.
Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus—Sail and Sea Glass
Whenever a sneaker brand wants to push sneaker design forward, we’re all for it. That’s the only reason we’re big Yeezy fans, even though it’s getting harder and harder to like Kanye West day by day. Nike’s new Terrascape Plus is their way of mixing up the Air Max silhouette and bringing it into a new era of sneakers. The Terrascape is made with 20% recycled materials by weight, including recycled TPU on the Swoosh cage, 75% recycled polyester on the upper, recycled rubber outsole and 100% recycled laces.
It’s a combination of Nike’s performance-driven sneaker design ethos and their focus on making durable sneakers look cool, not just theory. Design-wise, we’re in, it’s weird and alien and fits in with the other more edgy base shoes (think Yeezy 550s), but I have to admit I don’t like the colorway. It’s a bit too shiny and shows off the weird, wavy lines of this sneaker a bit too much. It needs a sleeker, darker colorway to really shine, once this sneaker gets dirty it will look like real trash.
The Nike Air Max Terrascape Plus Sail and Sea Glass is set to release on February 17th for a retail price of $185. Get a pair via the Nike SNKRS App.
The sneaker features a leather upper with a cement elephant print mudguard, dark red accents throughout and is sat on a gray outsole. For a bit more color, the Jumpman logo on the tongue features a Curry colorway which is further accented throughout the shoe. It’s a great design among the best Jordan silhouettes out there.
Yeezys have been sizing wrong lately, so the brand suggested you order a half size up, but the Blush runs true to size, so don’t take any chances on the fit here.
