MAY MADNESS


 

TRAVIS SCOTT X AIR JORDAN 1


TRAVIS SCOTT X AIR JORDAN 1

Release Date: May 11th, 2019

Price: 250cad 175usd

Colours: SAIL/BLACK-DARK MOCHA-UNIVERSITY


The highly anticipated Air Jordan 1 from Travis Scott dropped in early May. Sneakerheads everywhere can be found salivating, over the crisp AJ1’s. Travis’  design was inspired by his youth, to be more specific, his outdoor experiences.


The highly anticipated sneaker collaboration was teased all the way back in Super Bowl LIII. Adam Levine wore the shoe when performing at the Half Time Show.


The beautiful mocha brown, blends in perfectly with the AJ1 silhouette.  Not to mention, the tumbled leather and brown suede work together quite nicely. Nike and Travis didn’t cheap out on the details either. The sporty stitching and the side pocket on the ankle strap, enrich the sneaker's originality. Lastly, the minimal Cactus Jack branding doesn’t overpower the classic AJ1 look.


                                               

NIKE AIR JORDAN 4 RETRO OG “BRED”


Nike Air Jordan  4 Retro OG "Bred"
Release date: May 4th, 2019
Price: 265cad 200usd
Color: BLACK\FIRE-RED\CEMENT GREY

 

The early May drop was a treat to all Jordan fans, as the iconic giant dropped the OG "Bred's" to celebrate its 30th anniversary with the Air Jordan 4.


The basketball sneaker gained popularity when Michael Jordan wore the shoes against the Clevland Cavaliers in the 1989 NBA playoffs.


The black, fire-red, and cement grey colorway solidifies the legendary status of the OG sneaker. Furthermore, the Jordan "Flight" branding will be returning on the shoe's tongue. Also note, the "AIR JORDAN" branding, will return to the heel of the sneaker. A bold move from Nike since they haven't included this detail on the shoe in over 20 years.

Sneaker enthusiasts everywhere could now walk on the moon with this drop, we promise.

 Here at Oak shop Canada, we adore this release. Everything from the protective Nylon and polyester mesh, to the astronaut vibe, this shoe does not disappoint.

The silhouette is unique and flashy, while still keeping the shoe, oddly desirable. Seek discomfort in your sneakers, cop this drop.

 

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 “Glow”

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 “Glow”
Release date: May 25th, 2019
Price: 300cad 220usd
Colour: GLOW\GLOW\GLOW

We understand that it's not 2016, but this Yeezy drop is exquisite.

The hype for Yeezy's has been on a decline in recent years, but this colour-way makes us confident in Adidas again.


For starters, the passionate glow of the shoe makes for a beautiful scene. Also, the iconic 350 silhouette still gives us a warm, fuzzy feeling. You'll be seeing this sneaker frequently this summer.

We'll end this off with a question, could Yeezy still jump over Jumpman?

Jerry Lorenzo made a huge comeback this year with his Nike Fear Of God 180 Black and his moccasin model.


Classy sneakers are re-imagined with these two drops. Lorenzo created a unique silhouette and achieved perfection throughout the process. This sneaker could work great with jeans, joggers, and slacks. The theme of versatility is prominent within the design and the black-fossil colorway is elegant.


Re-create your whole look with this drop, this purchase is a must.

 


Nike SB X Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Light Bone\Court Purple

 

Nike SB X Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Light Bone\Court Purple
Release Date: May 25th
Price: 215cad 175usd
Colour (Light Bone): Light Bone
Colour (Court Purple): Crimson Tint-Hyper Pink-Black

 

We love the vibe that these sneakers set. Both sneakers are unique in their own way and deliver a fun, welcoming energy.


The "Court Purple" was originally supposed to have a "Lakers" gold, purple, and black but the colours were altered. If you pay close attention to the colour scheme of the shoe, you will find a faded "Chicago" colour set.


The most unique characteristic of the "Light Bone" is the use of distressed leather. It's extremely impressive to see how the leather and stitching blend perfectly.  


The artistic vision of these sneakers is remarkable. One of the best drops of the entire year.


Sacai’s Double-Swoosh Nike LDV Waffle Daybreak

Sacai’s Double-Swoosh Nike LDV Waffle Daybreak
Release Date: TBD
Price: 205cad 155usd


We receive a vintage\classic vibe from this drop. Yes, we do agree that too many companies milk the "vintage scene", but this drop is refreshing. The shoe is made out of leather and suede, hence the quality of the sneaker is superb.


Cool features include a double tongue, double lace, double mudflaps, and the double Nike swoosh.


The price of this sneaker is extremely reasonable, considering the artistic effort that was put behind the shoe. Do not hesitate to cop.

 

Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 v2 “Vanta”

Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 v2 “Vanta”
Release Date: TBD
Price: 400cad 300usd
Color: Vanta

The final drop of this list, and the second nomination for Adidas. It seems that Yeezy is having a busy month, full of quality drops, and we hope it doesn't stop.


Kanye first wore these at a surprise performance in Miami last year, and we have been waiting ever since.


The chunky 700's blend perfectly with the "Vanta" colorway, and we guarantee this shoe will gain traction on the resell market.


Pick up your pair as soon as possible, as the price on these sneakers will probably rise.
