The second week of May sees another set of sneaker drops and this week is filled with collaborations and retro-releases. Last week featured the introduction of the adidas x Pharrell Williams Tennis Hu as well as PUMA’s collaborations with Stamp’d and Staple. This time, we see where you can still buy the mostly-sold out Converse x UNDEFEATED collab, the long-awaited ASICS x PORTER shoe as well as Patta, Karhu and a couple of pairs of retro Nike silhouettes.

Converse x UNDEFEATED One Star

Release date: Out now
Retail price: £80 from Converse

Converse has continued its partnership with UNDEFEATED, this time creating a One Star sneaker with the streetwear stalwarts. The shoe comes in olive-green and grey colorways and is the latest Converse shoe to make use of Nike Lunarlon cushioning on the insole.

ASICS & PORTER GEL-Kayano

Release date: Out now
Retail price: £119 from Hanon

The long-awaited Asics x PORTER GEL-Kayano shoe is finally available in stores now. The clean and minimal shoe takes its inspiration from PORTER’s tanker bag series using the same black and hi-vis yellow colorway and nylon fabric seen on the Japanese accessory specialist’s bags.

Nike Kobe A.D. “Triple Black”

Release date: Out now
Retail price: £129.99 from Footlocker

With the ZO2’s bearing an extremely strong resemblance to the Kobe, now is probably the best time to re-up on the original shoe. This time it’s available in a sleek triple black option at a price that’s a third of the Big Baller Brand specials.

Nike Kobe A.D. NXT White

Release Date: Out now
Release Price: £160 from Nike

This iteration of the Kobe is notable for its unique lacing system, which is designed to ensure the lacing doesn’t come loose during play. The shoe is out in a clean white colorway and is the second post-retirement shoe the Hall of Fame-lock.

Diadora x Patta S8000

Release date: Out now
Retail price:  £159 from End

Patta continues its ongoing collaboration with Diadora, this time working on a pair of S8000s. The made in Italy shoe comes in a summer-ready colorway, embroidered dual-branding and an EVA midsole.

Nike SB Dunk High “Mulder”

Release date: Out now
Retail price:  £90 from Nike

The Dunk is as classic as you can get, so this retro SB Dunk High in Richard Mulder’s famous 2002 colorway makes a welcome return. The shoe’s being released to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the SB Dunk and the white colorway makes it perfect for the warmer months.

Karhu Synchron Classic


Release date: Out now
Retail price:  €149.95 from Overkill

Karhu continues its resurgence in sneakerhead circles, this time with the Synchron classic. The release honors Paavo Nurmi, aka “Flying Finn,” who won nine Olympic gold medals and set 22 world records participating in both 1,500 meters and 20,000 meters distance running.

adidas NMD R1 Primeknit Datamosh

Release date: May 12
Retail price:  £139 from Sneakersnstuff

adidas has released the Datamosh pack, exclusively at Sneakersnstuff. The pack’s bold colorways take inspiration from datamoshing – a process of manipulating the data of media files in order to achieve visual or auditory effects when the files are decoded.

Air Jordan 4 “Pure Money” Retro

Release date: May 13
Retail price: £160 from Nike

The “Pure Money” colorway makes a comeback after 12 years and, as expected, it’s highly sought-after. The metallic silver eyelets, lace tips, and Jumpman branding on the rear heel and insole make this the perfect pair of summer sneakers, so it’s worth setting your alarm for on Sunday.

Nike Air Zoom Flight 95

Release date: May 15
Retail price: £125 from Nike

Nike has been committed to retro-ing its bolder silhouettes from the ’90s and the Air Zoom Flight 95 is the latest shoe to get the comeback treatment. The shoe, which was worn regularly by Jason Kidd, will be returning Monday morning in three colorways, tan, black and “Pink Dust.”
