SHELFLIFE: Releasing this weekend
The weekend is approaching fast and we have some dope releases dropping at Shelflife!
Take a peek below to see what you can expect at Shelflife.
Patta x ASICS GEL-Respector
Two giants collide with the upcoming release of the Patta x ASICS Gel-Respector collaboration, extending a partnership that dates back to 2007. Channeling ASICS’ Japanese roots, the collaborative GEL-Respector — which first surfaced late last year — takes cues from the likes of anime, tropical fish and mythological creatures.
The upper is comprised of overlays in methyl blue premium suede, with flame orange striping and marine green accents contrasted against a grey perforated nubuck base. Details include 3M striping underlay, custom tongue pulls, and embossed logos on the heel, branded sockliners, and matching laces in flat and rope options.
Retail price: R2699.00
Nike Air Jordan 5 Retro Low ‘Fire Red’
This Air Jordan 5 Low comes in the iconic “Fire Red” colourway that was one of the original colourways to release back in 1990. This edition is dressed in a White, Fire Red, and Black colour scheme. The shoe features a White leather base upper that includes Fire Red accents on the inner interior, Jumpman logo on the tongue and back heel, as well as hitting the midsole. Black detailing and an icy translucent outsole finishes off the look.
Retail price: R1899.00
Nike Air Moc Fleece
Nike has revived the classic Air Moc sneaker, a perfectly logical nuptial between one of Nike’s most comfortable silhouettes and one of its most comfortable textiles. The upper of this Air Moc release is simply executed in a heather grey colour scheme that resembles a “sweatshirt” look, with black and red accents and a white sole keeping things classic and simple.
The minimalist design features a padded collar, adjustable draw-string for a snug comfortable fit, with ventilation eyelets and a high-traction rubber outsole. Exterior Nike branding is limited to a discreet Swoosh on the forefoot and heel, while the sock liner is printed with “SP” branding.
Retail price: R2299.00
Nike Air Presto "Safari"
Two of Nike's most popular designs collide as the Swoosh's iconic "Safari" print meets the fan favorite Air Presto. The Nike Air Presto is one of the Nike brand's most popular silhouettes and its return in 2015 came with ample success.
Inspired by the Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 "Safari," the Air Presto features a very similar striking colourway. While the safari print is used on a majority of the upper, the two shades of orange, green, and off-white used are extremely similar to that of the Air Max 1. Unlike the other upcoming "Safari" releases that reinvent the use of the pattern, the Nike Air Presto sticks to a colourway that works well together and will be widely popular among sneaker fans.
