5 sneakers to look out for at SNKRDUNK’s new flagship store
You do not need to be a sneakerhead to appreciate these shoes!
Whether you are a hardcore sneakerhead or you simply appreciate a good pair of shoes, SNKRDUNK’s new flagship store presents a whole range of options for you to choose from.
We dropped by for a visit and here are some of our top picks with a little bit of history about each of them for the uninitiated.
1. Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Retro High “LA to Chicago”
The first Air Jordans were produced by Nike for professional basketball athlete Michael Jordan in 1984. At the time, he was playing for the Chicago Bulls. They were released to the public in April the following year.
This rendition takes after the colours of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team, gold and purple.
Continued use of the shoes will wear off its purple colour, revealing the red underneath – intended to represent the city of Chicago.
2. Yeezy Boosts
You may know American rapper Kanye West from his songs POWER or No Church In The Wild. On top of music, he has his own line of apparel and footwear as well.
His collaboration with Adidas birthed the Yeezy Boosts sneakers. The first edition, named Boost 750, was released in 2015.
3. Travis Scott x Nike Air Jordan 1 Low Reverse Mocha
Widely known for his song Sicko Mode, Travis Scott has jumped in on the Air Jordan game too.
This edition is a nod to the flipped colours of the original ‘Mocha’ AJ1 Low released in 2019, earning the nickname “reverse mocha”.
This pair also features the Houston rapper’s signature reverse Swoosh on the lateral side.
4. Fragment X sacai X Nike LDWaffle “Blackened Blue”
A combination of Japanese fashion brands Fragment Design and sacai with Nike, those looking to step up their streetwear game can look no further than this pair of shoes.
This edition mixes “signature features” from both brands, such as double tongues, shoelaces and Swooshes blending with logo hits from all three brands, according to Nike.
5. Nike Panda Dunks
Skateboarders and basketballers might be familiar with this pair.
As the name suggests, these dunks take after the colours of a panda. They were designed as high-top basketball sneakers and were also released at the same time as the Air Jordans.
The SNKRDUNK flagship store located at #01-09 and #02-10, Mandarin Gallery, 333A Orchard Road.
