Rob L x Puma Clyde "Archipelago"

Back in 2007, sneaker customizer Rob L officially teamed up with Puma to create the “Archipelago” Clydes, a tribute to the Greek word for range of islands. For 20 years, Rob L has become an incessant fan of the Clyde and Suede profile, beginning with the book “Spraycan Art”. The original custom sneakers featured a special technique involving Pantone markers to create the patchy upper, mimicking small concentrations of islands. The popularity of this sneaker has spawned a full production version. Capturing the essence of the original, the Clyde is very much similar to its custom sneaker originator (perhaps the status can be upgraded to sample now). The sneaker will be available in two colors, with a nubuck upper and special padded tongue to ensure the laces are spread wider apart and achieve that “jellyroll” look. A worldwide release date is set for June 21st. Available at Solebox.

Nike Sportswear Air Max 90 Premium

At the recent Nike Sportswear launch in Beijing, among the upcoming showcases were a series of Air Max 90s. Display alongside re-designed styles of the classic Air Max 90 such as the Flywire AM90 and AM90 Current were a further preview of these Air Max 90 Premiums. Devoid of the technical innovation like the contemporary Air Max styles, Fly Wire and Current, these Premiums aren’t without their own merits as the quality constriction is marked by the use of multiple materials on the upper. The upper is comprised of rip-stop nylon, texturized rubber and felt on the toebox. Look for these to hit select Nike lifestyle dealers in the coming weeks.
