With sneakers dominating from the streets to the feeds, there will always be those timeless trainers that will never go out of date. So we’ve handpicked our top 3 Junior sneaks, some of the hottest classics that will keep you looking fresh all day long. Check out the icons below to keep you one step ahead.
Nike Air Force 1
The Nike Air Force 1 continues to dominate the scene and is still as relevant as it was back when it was produced in 1982. Since then, there’s reportedly been 2000 different colourways of the AF1 with artists such as Kanye and Nelly referencing them in their lyrics. They’ve even been worn by famous faces such as Drake and Dr Dre.
Low, Mid or High, there’s a style to suit everyone and the iconic Air Force 1 Low has the perfect update for you. With a minimalist makeover, this sneak sports a luxurious smooth leather upper and a reimagined logo. The new symbol combines a basketball positioned inside a wreath, all of which is embroidered in gold. Other unique features include gold hued branding on the midsole and tongue, with a mini gold swoosh sitting at the bottom of the eyestay. Be sure to cop this street classic.
Nike Air Max 1
First released in 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 was the first shoe to boast visible air units. The legacy took off with an instantly recognisable silhouette and bold colourways and now it’s difficult to imagine a sneaker collection without a feature from the popular Air Max 1.
Since its debut there’s been a fair share of colours and collabs and with nearly 30 colourways to choose from, we’ve got you covered. With a selection ranging from tumbled grey to vintage coral, there’s something to suit everyone and the classic Tour Yellow certainly doesn’t disappoint. Featuring a leather upper and bold branding, the strident volt of yellow provides maximum style impact. With an iconic silhouette, the AM1 fuses comfort with style for an elevated look.
The adidas Stan Smith was well known as one of the best-selling trainers of all time. It was designed, re-designed and discontinued before being reintroduced with a modern silhouette making the sneak more popular than ever before. The simplicity of this shoe is one of the major success factors, refusing to comply with the modern day trends it stays true to its heritage. Collaborating with names such as Raf Simons put the shoe on the scene and have made it a must have for any sneakerhead.
An impressive pair to add to your rotation, the adidas Originals Stan Smith Trainers in White and Fairway are a handy lightweight choice for any occasion. With a clean aesthetic and crisp leather upper, the subtlety of the Stan Smith has stood the test of time and its iconic design has remained unchanged over the past 50 years.
