Best of Summer Sneaker Releases at Aphrodite1994

The sneaker game has changed, weekly releases from every brand have forced sneakerheads to check daily for the next cop. There are always special drops you might have missed so don’t worry, we’re recounting our favourite releases of the summer!
Following up adidas’ recent readoption of the terrace look, the Sobakov take the Gazelle and Samba stylings of the casual heyday and places them on to a highly desirable asymmetrical silhouette. The football pedigree is on full display with its 3 stripe design lifted straight from the recently reissued Predator Precision series. The similarities to the recently release Kamanda are rife, but the Sobakov holds it’s own as highly desirable design. Read more about the release here.
Celebrating the anniversary of their iconic running slogan Nike have adorned their brand new running silhouette, the EXP-X14, with the instantly recognisable advertising phrase and its orange-tinged colour palette to great effect. Following on from the Zoom fly was never going to be an easy task, but the EXP-X14 streamlines the design and incorporates eye-catching panelling of translucent mesh to great effect. Perfect for the gym or streets, the EXP is perfect in any environment and particularly in a monochromatic colour palette. Read more here. 

Celebrating two nations dear to the Raf Simmons heart finds the ostentatious Ozweego adorned in the USA Red, White and Blue and Belgian Black, Yellow and Red respectively all in the aid of independence and national identity. With both releases coinciding with each nation’s independence day, using the audacious silhouette of the Ozweego as a conduit to individuality and identity, a theme that rang true with each nation’s respective revolutionary movement. Raf, as ever, manages to feature all of this in the luxurious Ozweego design. Read more about both the USA & Belgium releases here.  Raf_Simons_Ozweego_USA_03Y-3 Harigane SneakersKusari & Saikou 
A collaboration that predates Off White X Nike in hype and design, the Y-3 collection from master tailor Yohji Yamamoto and adidas hits its 15th anniversary, and there are no signs of let up especially with the footwear choices on offer. With the minimal offerings of the Kursari in monochromatic (and token Yohji) White & Black, alongside the returning Saikou silhouette, all featuring subtle additions of boost technology. The highlight of the drop is the Harigane trail sneaker, championing deconstruction and offering a unique redesign of the adidas NMD with its segmented sole unit. Keep your eyes peeled for more to come in the Y-3 Kiawa. 
Nike Air Max 98 & 270
A newly created and newly reissued double bill of Air Max from Nike in the form of the Air Max 270 and Air Max 98. Both championing revolutionary air units; it’s the first edition of each colourway for the respective silhouettes. The 270 lands in an eye-catching and intrinsic triple black Air Max 270 colourway, complementing the audacious air unit with a subtle colouring. On the other spectrum, the total crimson makeover of the Air Max 98 is a spectacular rendition of the vibrant and chunky Air Max styling. Two distinct looks but equally irresistible.
