Whether you occasionally splurge or are a true sneakerhead who keeps up with the latest drops without fail, sneakers have fast evolved beyond the training ground to becoming comfortable, stylish and highly functional fashion staples even the It girls cannot part ways with. Similarly, our love affair with sneakers will never dwindle and here are several new releases you ought to cop now:

Under Armour HOVR Phantom (RM675)

These ultra-breathable shoes are sufficiently cushioned for daily training and also for the streets, akin to running on a cloud. Boasting the Speedform 2.0 sockliner and insoles built in for softer underfoot support and protection, the shoes are constructed with a microthread upper made with Dyneema, the world’s strongest fibre on a full-length HOVR foam.

Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 2 (RM706.50)

The ultra-light Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2 combines a handful of Nike’s many innovations including the Flyknit and Max Air technology to extend more support around the heels on top of the foot-hugging feel. The futuristic sole is evidently a major part of its appeal, aside from maximum responsiveness and dynamic flexibility the shoes provide.

Fila Disruptor II (RM367)

These quintessential ’90s dad sneakers are showing no signs of slowing down and irresistible new colourways have just been unveiled in solid pink, dusty blue and olive green. The iconic silhouette on the trainers that turn heads effortlessly feature a lightweight EVA sole with a jagged-detailing for that sporty yet retro edge.

PUMA Thunder Electric (RM629)

Bold and absolutely unapologetic, these chunky sneakers are constructed with leather and a premium mesh upper secured on a thick TPU sole unit for support and structure. The shoes are then finished with the signature Formstrip in metallic lavender for sheer coolness that is unlike any other.

adidas Originals Continental 80 (RM424.53)

Classic never looked better. These ’80s tennis style trainers are constructed with a leather upper for a premium look, and the bottom is a responsive midsole paired with a grippy outsole. The red and navy stripe along the sidewalls with the adidas wording and Trefoil branding makes them extra sleek on the streets.
