Welcome to the Sneakend Roundup, where I’m highlighting last week’s biggest sneaker releases and news that got my blood flow going, and this coming week’s announcements and releases that have me checking my savings account, and wondering how financially sound it is to buy another pair of kicks.
What to Buy Now:
Adidas Sleek SS19 Collection:
You may have missed this while you were keeping up with the Kardashians this week. Let’s be real, Kendall’s cool, and these kicks will make your 13 your old self cry that you couldn’t match your sneaks to your highlighter collection, but we get it, you were preoccupied with some other Kardash news. But don’t let that stop you from missing out on these clean, colorful spurts of joy for anyone who’s a minimalist with edge. I’m telling you, you want these. And best news, they’re affordable. My Personal favs, the Adidas Sleek S will cost you $100, but you can cop a super cool pair for just $80. And they’re already out and online. Shop them now on Adidas.com.
What Releases to Keep Your Eyes On:
Sacai x Nike
There are 2 new collabs coming from this duo you’ll want to keep your eyes on. The Sacai x Nike LDV Waffle and Sacai x Nike Blazer Mid-both coming in 2 colorways. You may have seen both out for a while, but they finally have US release dates, with the former’s coming at you THIS WEEK on March 7th, and the latter on April 19th.
I’m not going to lie, I personally like the Blazer Mid’s a bit more, I’m a high top girl, what can I say, so I”ll be waiting until April. But don’t sleep on those LDV Waffles because they’re pretty freaking cool.
Emotionally Unavailable x Nike Air Force 1
THESE. I have been waiting for these since the pictures started surfacing about a month or two ago. They released at select locations in other parts of this vast world last month, but this week they got their US release date- and they are gracing our dear country at select stores on MARCH 14th, and you can bet that cross my heart, hope it beats a million times faster with this new lifeblood, I will be buying them, because I absolutely need them to thrive. They’re $160, which is not too crazy, and they are straight up pink fire. With a Nike check that looks like carpet, they make me want to roll around and just chill in and on them forever and ever. I mean, how could I pass them up?
Ok, I showed you mine, now you show me yours. What are you snagging this week?
