Shelf Life (4.17-4.23.2016)

My love for sneakers came from the Adidas ZX 500, the Nike KD IV and the Jordan XV. 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. 


This week, it seems like sneaker brands took a break from big releases, nonetheless some gems still sneaked out quietly. The most anticipated sneaker this week may be the adidas Tubular Nova Primeknit, as the signature adidas knit has really become a pride and joy for the brand with 3 stripes. The kicks mentioned below can easily be rocked during summer time and will add a little “pop” to your outfit. So, here’s what caught my eye this week:

Nike Air Footscape Magista Flyknit


Aaah! The almighty Nike Air Footscape Magista Flyknit. I still remember the first time I saw these, I was confused as to whether these are soccer boots, ninja shoes, or just some futuristic looking sneakers. It turned out to be all of the above combined to become a cozy yet wild looking sneaker. The sock like design seems to be an up and rising trend in 2016 and Nike made a clever move by releasing this model in various colors. These feature a lightweight royal blue Flyknit upper with small black and red details, reminiscent of the national France soccer club. The Footscape midsole with gum accents contrasts perfectly with the royal blue, making this pair extremely versatile.

The Nike Air Footscape Magista Flyknit is now available on Nike Canada for $265 (with free shipping) and if you’re interested in these, I strongly suggest copping them A.S.A.P. as sizes have already started to sell out.
