Adidas Seeulater OG
Having a name that reads like text speak should be clue enough that the Adidas Seeulater is a true nineties throwback. The oddball blast from the past, which blends sneaker styling with hiking boot features such as a rugged outsole and sock-like ankle support system, has returned in two of its OG colourways. Available from October 21 at Hanon, priced £99.
Common Projects Original Achilles Low-Top Sneakers
Common Projects still set the standard when it comes to pared-back sneakers. But they don’t come cheap, so ruining a fresh white pair by dragging them through winter would be a very expensive sin. Wise up and swap them out for the NYC-based footwear label’s new darker colourways, such as khaki. Available at Harrods, priced £255.
Asics Gel-Lyte V Tartufo Pack
Truffle season is upon us, so Asics has sniffed out inspiration from the elusive mushrooms known as “diamonds of the kitchen” for its latest drop. Based on Tartufo fungi, the brand’s Gel-Lyte V runner has been reworked with ostrich-textured leather and brushed suede in two earthy colourways. Available from October 22 at End, price tbc.

Available at Converse, priced £90.

If there are two things Supreme does well, it’s collaborations and skateboarding gear. So is there much point us suggesting an orderly queue for the cult brand’s latest tie-up with Vans? The collaboration celebrates the classic checkerboard pattern with souped-up versions of the Sk8-Hi Pro and Authentic Pro, now with added UltraCush HD sockliner and board-ready vulcanized outsole. Available at Supreme, 2-3 Peter St, London W1F 0AA, priced £.
New Balance M1500BY Made In England
Flimby’s finest is at it again. Produced in the Cumbrian Lake District, the New Balance 1500 is making a comeback in one of its most popular colourways ever produced. Long sought out by collectors, black and yellow premium suede with leather detailing is finished off, as always, with the brand’s trademark ENCAP midsole. Available at End, priced £125.
Ylati Footwear Amalfi Low 2.0
Despite being the product of three generations of traditional Italian craftsmanship, it’s Ylati’s futuristic-looking sneakers which have won it a fan base that includes Craig David, Jay Sean and Rudimental.
