    Vapour Grey colours almost the entire silhouette, mixed with white on the boost, words the words on the shoe and more eye-catching is the pair of right angles that can be found on the heel area. A subtler accent of tan is also used for the striped branding.The heel tab with words that come in various languages - we have it in Japanese here - the outsole block and the patch of insole covering the Boost is of the same colour as the Primeknit.

    Branding can be seen on the tongue, outsole, heel tab and the rectangular panels on both the lateral and medial sides.

    Beautifully executed, it's complete with matching flat laces and the Primeknit makes it ideal for wearing it this summer.

  • adidas NMD_R1 "Japan Black"

    First look

    Initially shown with a black boost midsole which rocked the bandwagon, the NMD Japan Boost in Primeknit instead had the standard white Boost, but it isn't stopping it from being sold out. Markedly different from the model adidas put on the Japan Black NMD's shoebox, there is no black boost and white stripes on the ankle sock; it's the opposite instead. You can get the Japan Black NMDs here.

    Check out the shots below:

    Saints SG: adidas NMD_R1 Japan Black Sole

     

    Black Primeknit dominates the entire model, and in white are the pairs of curious right angles around the heel, the font as well as the Boost midsole. Something special about the midsole block on the front is the Japanese words, which can be found only on the Japanese NMDs released by adidas.

    The 3-stripes branding is a little more low-key on this model adorned with classic colours, as adidas opted for black rectangular stripes on the Primeknit.

    The "Japan Black" NMD is part a few other colourways that have been released, get yours here today!

  • Nike SB Stefan Janoski Digi-Floral

    First look

    Here at Saints, we recently received a few pairs of the popular re-release of the Stefan Janoski Digi-Florals, and we only have very few sizes left in stock now - you can get them here.

    Check out the shots below:

    Back in mid-2013 when this shoe was first released, it instantly one of the most desired pair of Nike SB quickstrike (QS) shoes in history.

    The Multicolour/Black colourway, better known as Digi-Floral, is a combination of a classic camouflage pattern interwoven with a pixelated digital floral motif that produced a statement design that was very much sought after. Everything from the first release has remained constant: classic Stefan Janoski silhouette, white swoosh, black laces, white midsole and the air zoom unit for extra cushioning and comfort for skaters and non-skaters alike. Also, Nike threw in another pair of flat black laces, which we did a comparison shot of the two:

  • Solebox® x adidas Consortium Ultra Boost Uncaged

    First look

    We finally got our hands on the Solebox x adidas Consortium Ultra Boost Uncaged - better late than never - and with this being the second official uncaged Ultra Boost, it's interesting to see which collaborations will feature the cageless look again after numerous attempts by buyers to uncage theirs for various reasons.

    Check out the shots below:

     

    Solebox x adidas Consortium Ultra Boost Uncaged Heel Cup

    Solebox x adidas Consortium Ultra Boost Uncaged insole

    Coming in a special box that screams class, the Solebox x adidas Consortium shoebox has mainly burgundy all around, with gold accents, and a leather-like texture. 

    A look at the absence of a cage, and the first thing that springs to mind is the loss of the shoe's structure, whereby it'll be usually held by the stitched cages on both the medial and lateral side.

    That aside, the stitched suede heel cup replacing the plastic one on the GRs were a premium touch, with Solebox branding on the lateral side. The collaboration also features a soft, wool-like grey Primeknit upper, a complementing buttery smooth suede heel cup, and mesh in a different accent above it completes the different materials used in this collaboration.

    There are 2 extra set of laces - the original grey rope laces with red aglets and red rope laces in the same shade with the red tips.

    The matching reds on the shoe is a pleasing contrast, with the red outsole giving a touch of vibrancy to what may seem like a muted colourway. Complementing it perfectly are the lace tips, which gives the shoe a pop of colour along with the outsole and insole, which features Solebox and adidas branding on each side respectively.
