Shelf Life (3.27-4.2.2016)

My love for sneakers came from the KD V “DMV”, the OG adidas UltraBoost and the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago”. The sneaker culture strongly influenced my lifestyle by giving me a passion and hobby . Every week on Shelf Life, I’ll bring you the top sneaker releases based on my love and knowledge of the sneaker industry, as well as other pairs that might have sparked my interest. 

***

Whether you are into runners, Jordans or basketball shoes, there is something releasing this week for you. First off, the Air Jordan XII “French Blue” is making a triumphant return with the nostalgic OG box. Next, the one before the 1, the Air Max Zero, is now available for customization on NikeiD, opening many possibilities on the colorways for this shoe. Finally, Highsnobiety collaborated with adidas Consortium on a pair of UltraBoost and Campus 80.

Highsnobiety x adidas Consortium UltraBoost

This runner silhouette from adidas was first made popular by none other than Mr. Kanye West. Following its inaugural release in the black and purple colorway, many collaborations with sneaker boutiques/websites have been released. The latest one is with Highsnobiety, an online lifestyle publication. This Consortium UltraBoost features a grey sock-like Primeknit upper alongside a matching grey genuine leather cage and a premium leather insole with Highsnobiety branding. The Boost midsole also compliments this sneaker by providing comfort without sacrificing its look.

The Highsnobiety x adidas UltraBoost will be available on April 2nd 2016 at selected Consortium accounts such as HAVENLivestock and Off the Hook. Just like the other collaborations, these would be sold at a hefty $235. If you are interested in this pair, expect a camp out as they will sell out in a heartbeat, just like all other UltraBoost collabs. Good luck and be safe.
