UK retailer size? has presented a batch of exclusive sneaker releases for May. Encompassing two particular PUMAs, three recognizable Reeboks and the latest installment of the adidas Originals “City Series,” the half-dozen offerings provide rich colors and compelling stories in equal measures.

PUMA’s entrants into the slate of styles are a duo of Bluebird-adjacent silhouettes, one inspired by New York and the other by London. The New York pair is actually a homage to legendary New York Jets quarterback Joe Namath. In the ’70s, Namath was a PUMA athlete, so this soft grey and green style draws directly from a one-of-one turf shoe that was made for the man they called “Broadway Joe.” Meanwhile, the London pair is dressed in a purple and orange that’s pulled directly from the Jubilee train line. Each is stamped with a gold foil badge, and the New York features an off-white midsole while the London opts for gum.

Reebok’s three-pack of styles — the Club C, Classic Leather and NPC — are dressed in cream “glove leather.” Each present signature size? tweaks, namely black branding and orange embellishments on the heel. Clean, simple and elegant, the trifecta is completed with grey outsoles.

Last but not least, Shanghai is the latest metropolis spotlighted in size? and adidas‘s “City Series.” Ultra-rich blue suede uppers are accented by an orange Three Stripes graphic and purple heel piece, acknowledging how the Shanghai skyline reflects off the rivers that weave through the city. Stamped gold foil branding and trim gum midsoles provide finishing touches.

See the video above for a full rundown on each exclusive. Release dates and retail prices for each pair have yet to be announced, but expect staggered arrivals on the size? webstore over the course of May.
