Palace Spring/Summer 2016 – With its roots deep in London, the Palace team grabs inspiration from the skate and underground scene around them. For Spring and Summer, the brand turns up on the grimy look of soccer hooliganism with a parody of some familiar favorites. Soccer inspired knits, cotton jumpsuits, and taffeta windbreakers start off the collection and while button-down denim, colorful printed shirts, and the usual run of graphic T-shirts and sweats ties it all off. The collection is set to drop March 5, with a subsequent online release on March 9.

Air Jordan 5 Metallic Silver Low – One of the sleeper hits from a decade ago were the Jordan 5 Metallic Silver. The classic retro arrived with white leather uppers and a splash of grey and black. It sat on the shelves and some were able to cop for mad cheap at the outlets. But, as time passed, the sneaker was revered for how clean and minimal it looked. Fast forward to now—Nike decided to re-release the Metallic Silver, but with one huge change: they lopped off the top and made this popular colorway a low-cut sneaker. Everything  remains largely unchanged, but the feel of this classic has definitely been altered. Look for the low cut version of the Air Jordan 5 Metallic Silver to drop in late March.

Asics Gel-Lyte V Gore-Tex “Ice” – Nearly every time I tell myself I am done with runners a hot “must-have” colorway comes out. Asics executes a beautiful winter edition of their Gel-Lyte V in the new “Ice” colorway. The uppers use a sharp mix of black and grey that is highlighted by a splash of blue and red. The midsoles are white with a hint of grey speckle across the heel. All of this is pulled together with the amazing use of the outsole. While many shoes have one color, Asics’ outsole uses three. The red, white, and blue reminds me of the Icees and Slush Puppies (always a good thing) and brings a vibrancy to the clean runner. The sneaker is also treated with Gore-Tex to ensure that your feet stay nice and dry.
