adidas Originals start 2018 on the front foot introducing a brand-new silhouette to the NMD family, the NMD Racer Primeknit. Without straying too far from the original design, the NMD Racer PK is a refreshing update to a style that has been tried and tested through various colourways with multiple collaborations to its name.

The NMD Racer PK has a futuristic, racing-inspired, streamlined appearance, with a sock-like fit featuring the innovative Primeknit fabric throughout the upper with neon bursts to the outsole, midsole and heel.  Like past NMDs, the midsole is packed with Adidas’ innovative Boost technology, wrapping its way around the heel with the traditional heel plug unit slightly further back from where it usually sits.

Additional features include welded 3-Stripes to the side walls, the trademark NMD heel pull and an updated racing-style Quickstrike outsole with added traction for a tighter grip with every step. What’s most striking is the vibrant, fluorescent accents of neon yellow and bright pink to the outsole that creep up onto the midsole adding an energetic colour pop to a predominately black and white trainer.

The NMD Racer PK is complete with tonal laces, a flash of neon pink to the heel tab and a velvet-crafted overlay across the heel that brings a touch of class to a sportswear silhouette. The adidas Originals NMD Racer Primeknit is coming soon to The Hip Store.

We welcome the 2nd drop of  Gary Aspden’s adidas Spezial on Friday 6th October. The drop features another four shoes, following up from the six which launched on 22nd September.

20170301_Adidas-04-042_V4 copy

The entire range was shot by photographer Nick Knight and modelled by Drum ‘n Bass producer and DJ “Goldie”, a guy who is one of the few people to have done a Boiler Room set and hold an MBE. But before he became known for his Jungle bass lines, Goldie was big in the graffiti scene during the 1980s and continues today to be keen activist for the art style. So inspired by the man himself, we’ll be giving away limited edition spray paint cans with adidas Spezial orders, instore and online. Please note, there is only a limited amount available, so will be given out on a first come, first served basis. Each one comes in a co-branded box and filled with metallic gold paint.

New Balance 997 ‘Deconstructed’

Boston-based New Balance has come through with a fantastic offering just in time for autumn including two new ‘deconstructed’ 997s, two 998s and the newly launched 247 model in three colours.

This new deconstructed 997 offers a refined interpretation of a classic New Balance silhouette. This revered style features a neoprene inner lining with a sock-like entry system to the ankle for excellent all-round comfort. It’s more of a sophisticated, low profile shape than the regular 997 that can perhaps feel a bit too chunky on foot. This trainer is equipped with premium uppers and classic New Balance touches throughout including its signature REVlite technology to the sole. This ‘Made in USA’ trainer is finished with tonal laces, contrasting ‘N’ branding to the sides and a heel tab and tongue tab with embossed tonal branding including an American flag to the latter.

The new 247 style has turned into a bit of a New Balance gateway trainer; staying true to the New Balance vintage aesthetic but technical in specification. it’s been updated for AW17 in three very wearable, understated colours with premium suede uppers. The 247 is not even a year old yet but it’s surely got to be one of the best new styles around.

If you were to breakdown the New Balance line-up, the ‘Made in USA’ 998 sits at the top of the triangle. A beloved style due to the high-quality construction, fabrics and the nature of the layered mesh and suede uppers creates some striking colourways, just like the 998 CSU.

What’s Up Chuck?

The Converse Chuck 70 is quite simply our go-to shoe. They pretty much go with anything you wear so you can just lace them up whenever without much thought. With plenty of colourways on offer it’s quite easy to end up having a few pairs before you know it. What’s great about the Chuck 70 is […]

The Converse Chuck 70 is quite simply our go-to shoe. They pretty much go with anything you wear so you can just lace them up whenever without much thought. With plenty of colourways on offer it’s quite easy to end up having a few pairs before you know it. What’s great about the Chuck 70 is that it can completely elevate your look whatever iteration you choose, low or high. The low is great for the summer months, but if you run into some rain you’re in trouble due to the low-cut silhouette it possesses. With the high you get the addition of the beautiful All-Star branding to the inside ankle and they combat the elements really well, but if we’re honest, we prefer our Chuck’s a little rough around the edges.

Last week we received our first AW17 delivery and it was full of lovely new season colours including a re-stock of the ‘parchment’ as well as a ‘Chateau Rose’ (Pink), ‘Dark Sangria’ (Burgundy), ‘Blue Slate’ (Light Blue), ‘Jaded’ (Light Green) and ‘Midnight’ (Navy). But it’s not the colour options that makes this shoe great; anyone who knows a thing or two about footwear will tell you that it’s the Chuck 70’s finer details that make this such a celebrated shoe.
