The Adidas “A to ZX” collection continues with a non-collaboration pair that I ended up loving. The ZX 6000 “X-Ray” reimagines the silhouette with its insides flipped to the outside for us to see. The addition of exposed foam, translucent TPU overlays and visible stitching gives this shoe a very unique and DIY look to it.

Air Jordan 13 Retro “Hyper Royal” Review
This Saturday the Air Jordan 13 “Hyper Royal” colourway releases worldwide. Flipping the switch from the iconic “Bred” pair, instead of red, a bold blue colour covers the majority of the upper. The rest of the tooling remains unchanged, with 3M hits on the upper, Zoom Air cushioning in the midsole, and a panther paw inspired outsole. Check out my review to learn more!
Nike Dunk High SP “Iowa” (Varsity Maize) Review
One of the original 1985 Nike Dunk High colourways returned last week with the “Iowa” colourway. Done in a bold black and yellow leather upper, these are another OG Dunk release done right by Nike.

Adidas Ultraboost DNA “Terry Fox” Review
Imagining what Canadian hero, Terry Fox, would’ve worn in today’s day and age, the Adidas Ultraboost DNA released last week inspired by Fox’s classic blue Orion sneaker. Limited to 2020 pairs, and with 100% of the net proceeds going to the Terry Fox Foundation, these were a must have for my collection. Check out my review to get a closer look!

Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel-Lyte III OG “Plaster” (The Palette) Review
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the legendary Gel-Lyte III model, Asics and Ronnie Fieg teamed up to release 30 different colourways, sold exclusively at Kith, as part of The Palette collection. I picked up the “Plaster” colourway, which incorporates a grey suede upper with a pale blue midsole and outsole, for a lowkey but very wearable look.

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Black / Metallic Gold” (Patent) Review
My latest review covers the upcoming Air Jordan 1 “Black / Metallic Gold”, set to release November 30th! This colourway is constructed out of black and gold patent leather for a super shiny finish to them. Looking similar to the 2003 mid version, these incorporate a bit more gold to them, but generally have a similar look. Check out my review and enter the raffle at The Closet Inc. to pick yours up this Monday!
Sacai x Nike Vaporwaffle “Sail / Sport Fuchsia” Review
Sacai and Nike’s latest collab, the Vaporwaffle, sees the mashup of two shoes once again – this time the Air Pegasus from 1983, with the Nike Vaporfly from the modern era. Releasing in two colours, I picked up the “Sail / Sport Fuchsia” pair, which has a strong retro vibe that reminds me of the Nike Cortez.
