First Look: Neymar Jr. x Nike Air Max 2090 Pack

The 2090 sees two colourways, one made up of Tan and Pink, and the other Black and Red. For this two-piece project, the crafty Paris Saint-Germain forward pays homage to various chapters of his upbringing through textual embellishments printed on the sides of the throat.

The right lateral walls state “Sao Vincente” and “Praia Grande” which point to his adopted home, while the medial sides spell out “Jardim Gloria” to honor his football institute in Brazil and “Nautica III” to highlight his childhood neighborhood. Technical alterations are noticeable through its thick mudguards as they have now been carved out with multiple holes that run its length.

First Look: New Balance 327 in Three Colourways

The New Balance 327 brings together pieces of vastly divergent heritage silhouettes to create an entirely new style. The previous pairs have sported a split colourway design, these new looks completely encompass the sneaker’s upper.

Joining the blue/yellow and orange/white 327s is a muted red, light grey and navy offering. All three pairs highlight the signature sole unit in colours such as white or yellow and round off the look with its chunky, noduled outsole, which is served in black for the blue/yellow pair, and in gum for the other two.

Oversized 'N' branding on the lateral mid-panel is joined by minimalistic New Balance branding on the suede heel cup and tongue tag. Rounding out each pair is 'NB' branding on the footbed in a complementing colour, as well as a set of laces that match the sneaker’s respective colourway.
