Nike Air Jordan VI Retro Black Cat
Tinker Hatfield’s legendary Air Jordan VI drew inspiration from the sports cars of the early nineties, pulling design features such as a spoiler-like heel and neoprene boot together in this timeless classic. The VI is the third Air Jordan release in the Black Cat family, continuing to riff on the black and white theme, updated with 3M reflective details and Black Cat logos on the insoles.
Available from Nike, priced at £160.00.
Reebok Instapump Fury 58 Bright St. Edition
Reebok has been bolstered by the addition of some hugely famous names to its endorsement list lately.

This first release from the 58 Bright St sub-brand is an interesting and winter-appropriate sneaker boot style that saddles the classic Instapump Fury onto a Vibram sole.

New Balance 247 Luxe Pack
Back to work but not ready to swap your trainers for brogues just yet? The New Balance 247 was designed to reflect the 24/7 culture in which we all now live.

Available from 7th January at Size, priced at £90.00.
Nike Air Max 90 Animal Pack Leopard
Whoever said that leopard print is a neutral had clearly never seen these Air Max sneakers. Just in case the pattern wasn’t enough to help you stand out, the usual leather and suede of the model has been replaced in favour of a full pony skin-style material, but the black leather trim and monochrome sole keep your feet firmly on the ground.
Available from Offspring, priced at £115.00.
Adidas Originals Tubular Radial CNY Edition
Adidas Originals continues its annual Chinese New Year release with the Tubular Radial CNY. Alongside a special edition Stan Smith, Superstar and EQT 93/16 Boost, the Tubular Radial goes for a muted black and white palette with embroidery at the back that nods to it being the year of the rooster. As an interesting ode to the creature, the rear has also been given a feather-like texture.
Priced at £90.00.
