Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka

Riccardo Tisci, a self-confessed sneakerhead with over 1,000 pairs in his closet, continues to debut classic and streamlined designs with Nike. His latest, the Dunk Lux Chukka, is a mid-top silhouette available in three black-and-white and red-and-white colorways. Standout features include luxe full-grain leather and outsize, wrap-around swooshes.

Converse Chuck Modern Lux

Converse continues to class up its most casual silhouette, the Chuck Taylor. The new Chuck Modern Lux is decidedly dressier with a molded supple leather upper and wax-coated laces. You can’t go wrong with either of the classic color options—all-white or all-black.

Fear of God Mint-Green Military Sneaker

Jerry Lorenzo has introduced a cool new colorway to his Military Sneaker lineup—mint-green. The much-loved high-top model from Fear of God features nylon construction, detachable collar straps, side zippers and a steep price tag in the $1,000 and up range. This new colorway is available exclusively through RSVP Gallery while other choices—black, grey, beige and olive green—remain in-stock among a multitude of retailers.

adidas Adizero Japan BOOST 3

If you happen to find yourself in Japan, stay on the lookout for a new limited-edition model made exclusively for the Tokyo Marathon, which is held on February 26. The lightweight adidas Adizero Japan BOOST 3 is tailor-made for runners but remains appealing to sneakerheads of all stripes with a crisp white-and-red colorway and a grey “TOKYO 2017” logo on the back.

Nike x KITH “5 Decades of Basketball” Collection

Nike recently partnered with KITH to commemorate a half-century of great basketball sneakers with unique upgrades on five of its most time-honored models—the Air Force 1 Sport Lux, Blazer Studio Low, Air Foamposite Pro, Zoom Generation and the Flight Bonafide. All come in tan or feature tan-colored details.
