COMME des GARÇON PLAY x Converse, the best of Yeezy and Palace getting an AMG makeover, what more could we ask for? In this week’s round-up, sneaker marketplace KLEKT is bringing you their usual barrage of the hottest sneakers to shop along with clothing collabs and lifestyle accessories, so head below to take your first glance at what is sure to be the base of your summer 2021 wardrobe…
From classic sandy Yeezys to COMME des GARÇON PLAY collabs, the marketplace has rounded this week’s must-have sneaker and streetwear picks.
Air Jordan 6 Electric Green
When it comes to a sneaker round-up, a feature from Air Jordan is essential. For this week’s display from Nike’s most infamous line is the Air Jordan 6 Electric Green (£191). Contrast is the focus of the shoe as slime green glow-in-the-dark accents clash with an inky black base. And, with the shoe harking back to the retro Air Jordan
6 Oregon’s, it holds all of the history associated with the basketball footwear brand with a modern streetwear twist.
Given that it is Kanye’s birthday week, it is only fair that KLEKT spotlight some of the rapper-turned-designers best Yeezy offerings. If you are looking to keep things classic, the Adidas Yeezy 500 Taupe Light (£208) is the shoe for you as it embodies the nude colour palette and chunky silhouette synonymous with the creative’s work. Or, if brighter is better for your summer wardrobe, the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN (£203) in bright cyan celebrates the exaggerated Boost sole and rounded edges of a normal Yeezy shoe, but with the added flair of an ocean blue and black colourway.
COMME des GARCON PLAY x Converse 70 Hi Blue Quartz
With shoe collabs, nothing compares to COMME des GARÇON x Converse. And, continuing on with the pair’s legacy is their COMME des GARCON PLAY x Converse 70 Hi Blue Quartz (£181). Constructed from Converse’s signature canvas material in a striking royal blue, the Japanese fashion house leaves its mark in the form of its signature heart motif, whose eyes can be seen peeking out from the shoes thick white sole in a joyfully playful manner.
Nike Dunk Lows
If a sleek staple shoe is what you are after, the obvious choice is a pair of Nike Dunk Lows. Seamless to work into any outfit, their white leather base and low rise silhouette allow for Nike’s statement swoosh motif to take centre stage. And, with this week’s Lows available in Classic Green (£146) and University Blue UNC (£209), we are certain that the bold pair will be at the top of your wish list this week.
Fragment x Nike Dunk High Beijing Purple Black
If Lows aren’t your style, fear not as Nike also have a sought-after pair of Dunk Highs for you. The Fragment x Nike Dunk High Beijing (£158) is a fully leather display of crep perfection. Available in a deep aubergine and black colourway and housing Nike’s
Air Technology, the shoe is a must-have for all sneakerheads.
Palace x AMG
When it comes to the Palace x AMG collaboration, purple reigns supreme as the streetwear and automobile duo share aesthetics for their garment drop. Consisting of their racer Technical Crew (£181), tie-dye striped Longsleeve Purple top (£176) and a choice of motif-adorned white t-shirts (£151), the collection hacks streetwear sensibilities and injects them with the AMG’s high-performance character.
Supreme Leather Key Loop
And, proving that fashion doesn’t always have to be wearable is Supreme with their Leather Key Loop (£56). Fusing safety with hypebeast style, the leather lifestyle accessory dons Supreme’s statement logo and provides the perfect solution to the issue of what to do with your keys on a messy night out.
Of course, there is no point investing in a pair of the round-up’s luxury sneakers if they are just going to get battered up during your adventures. So, in a bid to keep your latest purchases fresh, Crep Protect offer their Spray (£10) and Wipe Pack (£6), meaning that your creps will stay protected and looking as good as new all summer long.
