Editor’s Notes: If you thought you’d be getting a break from New Balance after its stacked schedule in 2021, you thought wrong.

Although the first week of the year has only just slipped our grasp, the sneaker industry, as ever, refuses to take a break. Considering the strength of its past 12 months, led in large by collaboration the likes of Todd Snyder, Stray Rats, Extra Butter, and WTAPS, New Balance has given itself a tough act to follow.

Though tough it may be, there’s still plenty to be desired – MIU MIU’s “MIU Balance,” anyone?

Kickstarting the chain reaction that’ll inevitably continue to make NB a serious contender for Jordan and YEEZY is a pledge to go green.

990s are a brand staple for NB and serve as the foundation for a large majority of its most popular releases, and as such, it receives regular updates to ensure the sneaker remains contemporary.

While we wait for the release of the 990V6, the 990V5 is the latest such update. For 2022, the silhouette is receiving a vegan-friendly makeover. Largely the same as previous iterations, as in, it’s completely greyscaled; this updated take strips away the traditionally suede upper in place of vegan leather and plastic overlays.

Given New Balance’s track record for quality control and craftsmanship, expect these to retain the buttery feel of comfort of the original. Just friendlier.

Nike, even in just their name alone, has loose ties to Greek mythology. In the past, the goddess they took inspiration from has seen her very own shoe, which has likely inspired this upcoming Air Force 1 in one way or another.

Roman mythos, though, takes the helm here; and while influenced by the Greeks in many ways, its replete with its own rich culture. A far cry from a history lesson, this Air Force 1 purely mimics the empire’s color and regal sense. The deep reds that mark their flag are used for the patent leathers overlay, which shine in place of a gold exterior. A gilded shade does at least mark the tongue, taking the shape of a what looks like an ancient goddess.

For a closer look at the Air Force 1 “Roman Empire,” take a look at the official images below.

If you’re looking for something similar, the Nike Air Huarache Bordeaux Patent cuts pretty close.

Air Jordan 1 High “Anodized” Revealed By Dearica Marie

Lately, the Air Jordan 1 rarely ever dials up the theatrics. That’s the role the AJ1 Mid and Zoom CMFT have gone on to play. With the high-top’s latest, however, it seems to be reprising this part, dressing up near entirely in an anodized finish.

For the uninitiated, anodization utilizes an electrochemical process to effectively make a metal’s surface more durable and corrosion-resistant. It’s also used for decorative means, as the color, too, can be tweaked to a certain extent. The bright blue, almost green gradient of the upper here is but one of the possibilities, and its metallic sheen makes it appear even closer to the actual thing. Immersion is then broken, though, as the Swoosh, laces, and tread opt for a matte black.

Enjoy a quick peek at these right here. Once official images and release details surface, expect to find out here.

Deon Point Reveals A Third Concepts x Nike Air Max 1 Colorway

Thanks to sneaker leakers, it was revealed this past week that Concepts was working on a collaborative Nike Air Max 1. And it wasn’t just one colorway that was revealed; a second very quickly surfaced following the first, each rife with their own share of patterns and colors. And to make things even more exciting, Deon Point himself recently shared a third and likely final pair.

The simplest of the bunch, this iteration forgoes the use of camo and lessens the bandana print. In their place, a ripstop outfits the mudguard, its surface finished in a light olive similar to that which is found in military surplus. Adjacent, a lightwash denim wraps the toe as well as the profile, while the vamp and lace unit add luxurious pops of faux cow fur and red velvet, respectively. Across the back heel, a subtle hit of paisley does take the stage, though its blends in with the graphic-heavy hits at the collar and Swoosh.

For a closer look, check out the full image below. When we hear of a release date, expect to find out here.
