Sasom Weekly: Sneakers & Streetwear
Hottest Street Fashion News of the Week
Melting Sadness x Adidas Originals
Another addition to a number of the classic Adidas Superstar and Pro Model releases, Melting Sadness x Adidas Superstar features 6 characters-inspired silhouettes with unique designs and colour scheme: Karoro, Walking Carrot, Boba, Best, Kuka, and Bread Messy. The collection's highlight has to be the blue Superstar inspired by a bunny character, Karoro, featuring fluffy rabbit ears and a short round tail design. With the mix of street fashion and fun, bold design, as soon as this particular silhouette has been seen on a famous actress and iconic fashionista, Chompoo Araya, it's sold out instantly and will probably have a higher resale value on the market.
COMME des GARÇONS x Nike
Revealed on the Paris Fashion Week FW20 runway, COMME des GARÇONS explores its take on the classic Air Force 1 Mid Model in the Nike upcoming collaboration. The sneakers are covered in premium leather with surplus excess leather material around the Swoosh, heel, strap, toe box, laces, and CDG branding on the ankle strap. Available in both black and white colourways, the COMME des GARÇONS AF1 is finally released on October 23 via CDG and Dover Street Market both in-stores and online.
