Thankfully, it’s time for yet another brand-new TOP 5 Picks. This week we have put together a very diverse list of some of the most extraordinary sneakers, especially for you. Some of the brands that will come across are Yeezy, Adidas, Vans, New Balance, Nike, and Off-White. Of course, you can just take a look and enjoy all the designs, but maybe there is a gem for you among these sneakers that you would love to add to your collection. In any case, we are excited to share these sneakers with you, so let’s get right into it.

1. Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN Geode

The Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN already exists in three different colours, but recently a fourth colourway was added. This new version is called ‘Geode’ and is designed around the colour lilac. The rest of the colours are fairly quiet, so the lilac part really stands out. The famous number 700 is depicted in a reflective 3M on the side of the sneaker.

However, this is not the only place where 3M appears, as multiple overlays of it are applied throughout the entire sneaker. The midsole is encapsulated by BOOST cushioning. Both the midsole and outsole are black. All in all, they’re sneakers with a quiet colour combination, but they still stand out.

2. MSCHF Wavy Baby Tyga

This pair of sneakers will probably be high on your list of “most unusual sneakers”. Chances are very slim that you’ve ever seen shoes like this. Therefore, it will not surprise you that the Wavy Baby is made in collaboration with the art collective called MSCHF. This Brooklyn-based art collective believed that the sneaker landscape had become extremely stale. Their goal was clear; they wanted to make something original, and they succeeded! The MSCHF Wavy Baby Tyga is a shoe with a very special sole. The sole is in a kind of wavy shape, which gives it a striking look. Together with rapper Tyga, the sneakers are being promoted and we, at least, have definitely noticed them.

3. New Balance 991 Dover Street Market

It may surprise you, but the New Balance 991 has been around for a whopping 40 years. These types of sneakers have been very popular for a long time, but lately that has been different. Until now! These timeless sneakers are back in a brand-new colourway called ‘Dover Street Market’. The upper of the sneaker is made of mesh and suede. The colours that make up the sneakers are a sandy beige and a grey shade called ‘moleskin’. This color combination gives the sneakers a kind of vintage look, which makes them extra interesting.

4. Nike Dunk Low Aura Worn Blue Clear (GS)

Every sneaker fanatic is familiar with the Nike Dunk Low. This type of sneaker comes in a huge number of different variations and one of them is the ‘Aura Worn Blue Clear (GS)‘. The fresh blue colour comes back in multiple overlays. The leather material that the shoe is made of ensures that these are sturdy sneakers that you can enjoy for a long time. The blue color gives it a cheerful and fresh look, which makes it perfect sneakers for truly any season.

5. Nike Blazer Low 77 Off-White University Red

Do you like collaborations? Then it’s definitely worth checking out these sneakers. This collab between Off-White and Nike has resulted in the ‘White University Red’. These sneakers have a beautiful contrast thanks to the addition of extra yellow cord laces combined with the white leather. The red Swoosh branding is also a nice touch. ‘Nike Off’ is woven on the tongue of the sneakers and a feature of Off-White can be found on the side. These sneakers are a real statement piece and are a great example of a well-executed collab.
