The first weekend of 2017 is upon us, so what will be your first purchase of the year?


adidas Consortium x Shoe Gallery start the New Year by releasing the colourful Climacool 1 “Flight 305,” a model that has enjoyed a strong renaissance during 2016 and one that will continue into 2017.


For January 2017 the original Air Jordan XV returns, arriving in a “Stealth” colourway with woven and leather uppers dressed in black with tonal Jumpman branding and accents set in varsity red. Herringbone areas to the toe and heel add all-purpose traction, whilst Zoom Air units in the forefoot and heel provide responsive, low-profile cushioning. Releasing as part of the ‘Take Flight’ Pack, look out for the AJ15 launching at END. this weekend.


New Balance is excited to release a brand new lifestyle silhouette, the 247. Designed with the modern, urban lifestyle in mind, classic New Balance quality and craftsmanship is fused with modern performance-inspired details for a truly new, contemporary silhouette. The latest silhouette offers a new look, feel and fit, but still draws inspiration from iconic New Balance models to remain grounded in the brand DNA.


Saucony’s Grid 9000 is given a ‘Sparring’ update courtesy of the Saucony Sneaks fan page. Inspired by the signature colouring of a boxing ring, this iteration of the classic 90s silhouette is constructed from a combination of suede and mesh, with a synthetic leather in matte gold used on the overlays for a striking finish.
